Cardiologist Olga Bockeria spoke about products that support the work of the liver to neutralize the body from foreign and toxic compounds.

Doctor Bockeria stated, that taking care of the liver and the healthy state of this organ is of great importance for the whole organism and many processes occurring in it.

“It is important to have a healthy liver: it ensures the metabolic processes of proteins and amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, biologically active substances (hormones, biogenic amines and vitamins), and microelements. In addition, it produces bile, converts excess cholesterol into bile acids and removes it from the body. It stores carbohydrates, proteins, fats, hormones, minerals and trace elements, as well as vitamins A, D, K, B12 and folic acid and processes all these substances,” said Dr. Bokeria in the Telegram channel.
The doctor added that Another important function of the liver is detoxification – cleansing the body of potentially toxic compounds. In addition, hematopoiesis depends on the condition of the liver.

Olga Bokeria advised Russians to strengthen the health of an important organ through nutrition – for this, certain foods must be present in the diet. The doctor compiled a list of the seven best products for keeping the liver “in shape”: among them, she named eggs and lemons.

According to Olga Bockeria, the following seven products are the most beneficial for the liver:

  • Cruciferous vegetables (in addition to a variety of cabbage, they include lettuce, arugula, spinach, horseradish, radishes and radishes, turnips).
  • Eggs (thanks to the choline they contain, cholesterol is better regulated).
  • Young greens, sprouts, shoots.
  • Beets (its consumption improves bile excretion).
  • Garlic.
  • A variety of fatty fish.
  • Lemons.
