Love your Liver this Spring by adding these foods into your diet :)
Artichoke: A wonderful choice for the liver and the gallbladder because it increases bile flow.
Asparagus: Helps cleanse the kidneys and reduces water retention. It is also a rich source of folate, important for healthy cells, and high in glutathione, a vital antioxidant for detox.
Dandelion: Stimulates the digestive juices. Helps to digest fats and supports the body’s natural detoxification processes. You can juice dandelion leaves, cook with them, or drink dandelion tea.
