- The liver is basically just the body’s waste-clearing plant for toxins that we ingest. By toxins, we mean alcohol, rich fatty foods, sugar, and some food additives, which can stress out the liver. The liver breaks down toxins and removes them from the blood before they can do their dirty work. Avoid liver disease and eat a good diet.
Drinking water and avoiding processed foods helps the liver do its job. Antioxidant nutrients like vitamins C and E, all of the B vitamins, and zinc and selenium aid liver detoxification. If you already drink alcohol, continue to do so, but in moderation. Be careful about using herbal supplements to cleanse the liver. Many are not standardized to an efficacious dose and could be toxic (http://www.webmd.com/men/features/liver-detoxification----fact-fad#1 ).
Stick with essential nutrients, as they give the liver what it needs, and are found in the Everything Shake in the correct amounts. Also, the Nutrient Shake includes water, has no added sugar, and isn’t rich in fats. This is just perfect for keeping the liver healthy.
