What do you think about liver detox regimes ?

At least half the body's energy is spent in detoxifying the toxic substances it makes, plus those we consume from food, water and air. So you do need to give your body a rest from its burdens and support the liver with certain detoxifying nutrients. Some regimes on the market are gimmicky, but alongside cutting out 'toxic' foods and drinks such as coffee, alcohol, sugar and white bread, many foods are a blessing for your poor liver.

A good detox regime should emphasize glucosinolate-rich foods such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale, cauliflower and cabbage, and sulphur-rich foods such as onions and garlic, with a big emphasis on fruits and vegetables and away from animal products, to help restore the body's acid/alkaline balance and provide antioxidant nutrients such as vitamins A, C and E. You also need to supplement the amino acid glutathione and/or the herb milk thistle - major players in the liver's detox systems. Also excellent for assisting liver detoxification is a form of sulphur called MSM (methylsulfonylmethane); you will need to take 1g to 3g a day. Remember to drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water a day, too.
