Whether you’ve enjoyed a few too many adult beverages over the holidays or simply want to support liver health and function—the tips below will help.
Remove Toxins From Your Diet
Cleansing doesn’t need be extreme, but for best results, at least 2 full weeks of a low-toxin diet will help your liver reboot. Eliminate greasy and fried foods, alcohol, and all processed sugars. This still leaves you with plenty of healthy and delicious food and beverage options.
