How to keep your liver healthy and help it heal

Here are some powerful things you can do every day to keep your liver healthy and help it heal.

1. Stop smoking

Smoking cigarettes can increase the chances for liver cancer and cirrhosis, due in part to both the direct and indirect toxic effects of cigarettes.

2. Put down the alcohol

The science behind this is simple: the higher your blood alcohol content, the longer it takes your liver to process alcohol.

3. Cut back on sugar

The liver uses fructose – a type of sugar – to make fat, so a build-up of too much refined sugar and high-fructose corn syrup in the body transforms into a build-up of too much fat which can eventually lead to liver disease.

4. Maintain a healthy weight

5. Drink enough water

6. Practice safe sex

7. Medicate responsibly
