8 foods to help the liver deal with toxins

Every day, our liver is forced to process a huge amount of toxins that come to us with food additives, pesticides, alcohol, etc.

In some cases, exposure to toxins is beyond our control. However, we can support the liver by balancing both stages of detoxification and protecting it from toxic overload. Many factors affect our liver function, including our diet. And these foods will help strengthen the liver.
