2. Have a Cup of Joe
Coffee contains more than 1,000 chemical compounds, so all its beneficial or harmful effects are not yet completely understood. That said, several studies have shown that drinking coffee every day helps support your liver in avoiding fat and collagen buildup and may even help prevent liver cancer. In addition, the body creates a compound called paraxanthine, which slows the growth of scar tissue in the liver, when it digests caffeine.
3. Resolve Anger
In Chinese medicine, the liver is associated with the emotion of anger. Anger is a yang emotion, which means it is hot and wants to move. When we don’t express our anger appropriately, it can build up heat in our bodies in the form of inflammation. Adjustments to the diet can reduce inflammation in the liver, but working with emotions, especially anger, may be another important key in supporting liver health, both physically and energetically.
4. Drink Dandelion Tea
Dandelion has a host of health benefits for your liver. It has a much-studied polysaccharide that helps the liver produce bile and filter out the toxic chemicals that you ingest. It also contains a compound called taraxasterol that helps regulate white blood cells and soothes inflammation. Dandelion tea also has plenty of vitamin C to support the immune system.
