6 Foods That Protect The Liver by Tochukwuoparaa: 3:30pm On May 31, 2022
1. Coffee

Coffee is one of the best ways to keep your liver in good condition.

Even those who have already been diagnosed with liver disease can benefit from drinking coffee, according to research.

In those with chronic liver illness, for example, regular coffee consumption has been found to reduce the chance of cirrhosis, or permanent liver damage.

A frequent type of liver cancer may also be reduced by drinking coffee, as it has beneficial effects on liver illness and inflammation.

People with chronic liver disease had a decreased mortality rate when they consume at least three cups of tea each day, and the advantages are highest for those who do.

Its capacity to prevent the formation of fat and collagen, two of the key indicators of liver disease, appears to be responsible for these advantages.

Coffee also reduces inflammation and boosts glutathione levels, two important antioxidants. Oxidative stress can cause cell damage if it is not neutralized by antioxidants.

Coffee has numerous health benefits, but your liver will especially appreciate the morning boost you get from your favorite caffeinated beverage.

2. Tea

In general, tea is thought to be advantageous to one's health, but recent research suggests that it may be especially beneficial to one's liver.

A Japanese study discovered that drinking 10 cups of green tea a day was linked to better liver health.

People with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) who drank green tea high in antioxidants for 12 weeks saw an improvement in liver enzyme levels, as well as a reduction in oxidative stress and fat deposits in their livers.

Another study indicated that green tea drinkers had a lower risk of liver cancer. People who consumed four or more cups of coffee a day had the lowest risk of developing the disease.

It has also been shown that the extracts of black and green tea can have positive effects on mice and rats.

It has been observed that black tea extract can help reverse some unfavorable effects of a high-fat diet on the liver and enhance blood markers of liver health in rats.

A few people, particularly those with a history of liver disease, may want to be cautious before taking green tea supplements.

Because of the numerous instances of liver damage caused by supplements containing green tea extract, this is a precaution that should be taken.
