5 Liver Detox Superfoods

By Toni Gasparis

Fatty liver disease is a silent disease that 80 million Americans suffer from. Most people have never heard of fatty liver let alone know they have it, and the cause is surprisingly not related to alcohol consumption. The cause is sugar, starch, and refined carbohydrates that plague American diets and damage not only the liver but the rest of the body as well. Make sure you add these superfoods to your daily diet to ensure you are feeding your body the things that will make it healthiest.

Phytonutrient-Rich Plants

While removing high-fructose corn syrup is the most important thing to stop and reverse the damage of fatty liver disease, supplementing your diet with foods like kale, collards, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, arugula, daikon, and radishes is really important too. These vegetables increase the amount of glucosinolate in your body which in turn detoxes and heals the liver. Have one to two cups, or more, of these healthy veggies every day.
