After a wild night out of drinking and partying, we often reach for coffee or other caffeines to cure our hangovers, or even worse, some “hair of the dog” from the night before. These only deposit more toxins into your already exhausted liver, and won’t cure your hangover either. Instead, try these 11 foods that will detox your liver. They may not cure your hangover, but more importantly, they will help keep your liver healthy. In the long run, you will be doing your body a favor.
1. Milk Thistle
Milk thistle is an herb that can be dissolved in tea or blended with other herbs. It is one of the most widely used herbs to correct liver damage, especially for livers damaged by alcohol. It is also used by those who inhale a lot of industrial toxins and have damaged their livers.
Drinking lemon juice or adding a slice of lemon to your water or tea is a good way to add lemon to your diet. Lemon juice helps stimulate the liver’s production of bile, which pushes toxins out. It also helps prevent the buildup of gallstones. It promotes digestion, liver function, and the movement of gastric juices.
