Ayurvedic Herbs that help restore Liver Health
A healthy liver is vital to your sustained health and longevity, so it's worth taking care of.
An overwhelm of toxicity in your body is the quickest route to a diseased liver. This is often caused by eating processed foods, and chemicals applied topically on your body. It's hard not to have a sluggish liver. In today's polluted world, we live with pesticides, chemicals and artificial ingredients and processed additives in our food, water, air and in just about everything we encounter in our modern lives. And with all the toxins and pollution in the environment, your liver is probably could be overworked and sluggish.
A sluggish liver makes us feel tired, emotionally erratic, short on patience and unable to focus for long periods. We might have physical pain, digestive issues and become prone to allergies, not to mention stubborn weight gain. When your liver isn’t working at its best, it can even contribute to weight gain. If your body can’t remove the toxin before it can hurt you, the safest solution is to store it safely away in your fat cells. The body will keep pumping it into your fat cells, until the fat cells can no longer accommodate the toxic load.
The liver also secretes an anionic compound known as 'bile', which helps break down fats. Lemons are the only food on earth that contain "an-ions", which is why they are a profound healing food for the liver. This is why Yoga and Ayurveda recommend adding lemon juice to water to create a cleansing tea or drink. 1 cup of freshly squeezed juice every day should completely restore your liver within 90 days.
