Al-Marsad newspaper: Some foods and drinks help protect the liver from some diseases or reduce their impact, as they work to provide it with the necessary nutrients it needs.
The Mediterranean diet, which focuses on eating balanced amounts of fruits, lean protein and vegetables, is good for the liver.
Physician Christina Lindenmeier said that it is possible to rely on 8 foods that can improve liver function, according to what was quoted by the “Cleveland” health website.
Coffee: A series of studies found that consuming caffeinated coffee, on a daily basis, can have a positive effect on people with chronic liver disease. People with fatty liver disease are advised to drink at least 3 cups of coffee per day, in case the person does not have liver health problems.
Tea: Tea has the same health benefits for the liver. A 2016 scientific study found that green tea can help prevent liver cancer.
Chicken and fish: One of the main tasks of the liver is to process a lot of proteins, fats and carbohydrates for the body to use, and for this reason it would be useful to include in the diet a lot of proteins such as fish and chicken. It is recommended to eat quantities of lean proteins because they help the liver to complete its work.
Olives and olive oil: Olive oil raises the level of good cholesterol in the body, and it actually protects the liver from fatty liver disease. Olives and olive oil contain vitamin E and antioxidants, which are two things that the liver loves.
Nuts: Nuts contain a good amount of healthy cholesterol, and they are also rich in vitamin E, which has been shown to help people with fatty livers. Nuts are also rich in protein, so if a person suffers from advanced liver disease, it may be useful to eat a gram of nuts per kilogram of their weight per day.
Leafy green vegetables: Vitamin K, found in leafy green vegetables such as spinach, lettuce and cabbage, is necessary to contribute to blood clotting in the body.
Berries: Contains antioxidants are protein compounds that protect or reduce the effect of inflammation on the liver, as many studies have proven that berries are able to improve liver function.
Oatmeal: If a person has a history of chronic liver disease, it is important to ensure a regular bowel movement and to avoid constipation. And if a person is severely constipated, he will accumulate toxins in his body, but they can be removed through regular bowel movements, which is what oatmeal helps in.
