We all know that the liver is one of the most important organs in our body. It plays a key role in detoxification, digestion, metabolism, and immunity.
However, the liver is most famous for detoxification function that means it filters and removes toxins to keep our body and health. Especially, while some other organ may take a rest sometimes, the liver has to work all day and night to perform its functions. Working hard and continuously may make your liver exhausted, and when it is, we are sure to get into trouble.
There are some ways you may do to help your liver function properly. You may only need to hit the hay early and get deep sleep between 1 and 3 am since it is time the livers work most actively and effectively, or you just need to cut down on alcohol or ready-made food. But there is another way which could do a great job - drinking liver detox tea.
Who needs detox the liver?
Obviously, everybody needs to detox the liver since it allows liver function better, but if you find yourself in some of the cases, you’d better take action to save your liver.
#1. Eating too much processed and saturated fat
Those consuming too much-fried food or processed food must detox your liver. This is because it is hard to digest the processed and saturated fats in the food, and therefore, your liver is forced to work harder. More importantly, the fats produce a lot of toxic during digestion.
#2. Drinking too much alcohol
I strongly believe that I don’t need to talk much about the disadvantages of alcohol to our health. Alcohol together with drugs is the hardest substance to filter. Furthermore, it could be turned into toxins within your body. If your take too much alcohol, your liver will have to worker harder to filter and remove the substance and toxins and may experience damage.
#3. Lack of sleep and rest
As I have mentioned before, the liver works most actively and effectively from 1 to 3 a.m. when you fail to get deep sleep during the time; your liver can’t function properly which means that it can’t filter all the toxins in your body.
#4. Breathing polluted air
The fact is that the liver filters every single substance that we get into our body. The toxins that you take from the air go through your lungs to the liver to be filtered. And for those living in areas with polluted air, your liver has to get more jobs to do or even overload.
Why do we need liver detox tea?
Taking liver detox is commonly known as an economical yet budget-friendly method to cleanse the liver. The key to its effectiveness lies in the combination of herbs and organic, natural fruits to filter and remove toxic substances from the liver.
There is a lot of manufactured liver detox tea available that you may buy at any pharmacy or supermarket. However, in case you want to do it on your own, there are DIYs of liver detox tea that may interest you.
