True claims on liver cleanse

There have been claims made that multiple foods that we eat cleanse our liver. Foods like garlic, grapefruit, carrots, green tea, avocado and the list goes on. The garlic helps by activating enzymes in the liver which help with the detoxing, flushing of ┬áthe toxins. These foods are good for when we stuff ourselves with food. When we overeat and put fried food into our bodies our liver is working twice as hard and it’s not as efficient. The foods listed have been known to stimulate the liver and detoxify toxins in the body. I found a specific detox that is supposedly suppose to work.

*First thing on rising, drink 8 oz of pure water to flush your digestive tract.

An hour later, in a blender, mix up 8 oz of any fresh squeezed citrus juice (fresh squeezed apple juice or grape juice with all the sediment will work too), one lemon, 1 clove of garlic (increase by 1 clove each day), 1 tbs. of olive oil (increase by 1 tbs each day), and a piece of ginger (about 1″ long) along with 8 oz of pure water

Drink it down and follow with a fresh juice chaser to clear your mouth.

Fifteen minutes after consuming this drink, follow with 2 cups of the liver/detox tea. It is also important to take 2 droppers full of the liver/detox tincture 3-6 times a day while on the 5-day cleanse — and continuing after until the bottle is gone.*

false claims on liver cleanse

People claim that they can detoxify their liver by drinking all kinds of exotic drinks. They think they can drink it for 7 days or even longer in some cases and then magically have a more cleansed liver? wrong… You can’t actually cleanse something that already cleanses itself. Our body has a liver, kidneys and other organs for a reason. They are what cleanses our body, not those silly drinks and bazar diets. People who are selling these detox packages are getting great business from all these young girls and guys who think it’s doing good for their body. People also claim that while on the detox they lost weight. They are losing weight because they aren’t eating. Everyone speaks of this so called great thing that replenishes us and only the gullible ones are falling for it. We all must take care of our liver so we have our natural “detoxing” system in our body.
