4 Nutrition Tips for Anxiety, Digestion, and More from RD
Your liver does a lot for you. For example, the body metabolizes a wide range of compounds, from alcohol to drugs and, yes, nutrients. But “many people don’t realize that in order for your liver to detox, it needs a huge demand for nutrients,” Shapiro says. “Your liver needs a lot of different vitamins and minerals in order for it to function in the first place.”
That’s why she recommends eating a liver- and gut-friendly diet, including plenty of foods with sulforaphane (think broccoli, cauliflower, etc.). “Ghee is also really supportive,” she notes, as is getting enough protein.
You can also opt for a liver detox supplement if you want to further promote the organ’s detoxifying actions.
