Your liver is a vitally important organ and doing a regular liver/gallbladder cleanse can help you to keep it operating at its peak level. Your liver clears the blood of viruses, bacteria, and toxins, detoxifies alcohol and certain drugs, and even plays a part in the support of the body’s immune system.

When your liver is clogged or damaged, it can’t carry out the functions it needs in order to fight infections, create essential enzymes and proteins, absorb and store excess vitamins such as A, D, E, and K, make and regulate hormones, and remove waste from the blood.

Your liver is under attack every day and it can be damaged by prescription drugs, recreational drugs, and a buildup of toxins that we take into our bodies via the air we breathe, the toxic chemicals we are exposed to, even the foods we eat. Our livers can also be severely damaged by excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, and diseases such as viral hepatitis, non-infectious hepatitis, and cancer.

Cancer rarely starts in the liver, but generally travels there from another location, such as the colon, lung, stomach, pancreas, breast, and lymph glands. Our liver is under a great deal of pressure to deal with our modern world, and if we want to live a long, healthy life, we need to start taking care of it.

Symptoms of a Damaged or Congested Liver

  • Water retention
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Lack of appetite
  • Weakness
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Poor blood clotting
  • Nails are white and curved, not straight and pink
  • Jaundice (yellowing of skin and whites of the eyes)
  • Light colored stools

The good news here is that our livers are wonderfully strong organs that can regenerate themselves. This means that if we help our livers stay clean and clear, they can repair damage to themselves, much like our skin and bones can.

Flushing your liver with a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil is a simple way to help your liver rejuvenate itself.  Keep reading to find out how you can mix up a simple, healthy morning drink that will keep your liver working well. Find out other juice mixers for cleansing liver.
