Detox Your Liver: Two Surprising Ways You Unknowingly Damage Your Liver Every Day

You live in the modern world so there’s a good chance your liver isn’t working the way nature intended.


Because the modern world constantly sets us up to fail.

Despite repeated health warnings, most of us still choose to eat processed foods, do little exercise and, worst of all, drink alcohol regularly. 

Even a seemingly innocent glass of wine a night can damage our liver.

It’s no surprise our livers are screaming at us to help it.

Let’s explore this in more detail.

Here are:

Two Surprising Ways You Unknowingly Damage Your Liver Every Day

1. Drinking even one seemingly innocent glass of alcohol per night

Even one drink a night repeated over many years can be poison for our liver.

It’s no surprise then that as we progress through middle age and beyond, a poor functioning liver can result in:

  • Feeling tired
  • Low energy
  • Unwanted weight gain
  • High blood pressure
  • High triglycerides
  • High resting heart rate
  • Joint and abdominal pain
  • Weathered skin

2. Eating a diet high in processed foods

Processed convenience foods like lunch meats are the devil for the liver. They contain hydrogenated oils known as “trans fats” which have higher levels of saturated fat. The chemical structure of the oil itself has been altered to increase shelf life.

Consumption of trans fats dramatically increases the risk for heart disease by 25 percent or more, cause problems to our immune system and puts additional strain on and around the liver.

So now that we know what’s potentially causing us liver problems, what can we do about it?


Now for some good news.

There are simple way to reverse liver damage and support it ongoing.

These include:

  • Regular exercise

Keep a healthy weight by exercising every day if you can. Even if it’s just walking for 30 minutes a day. Get the body moving and the liver will love you for it.

  • Eat healthy foods

Eat a well-balanced diet every day. 

But what’s healthy and what’s unhealthy? Food advice can often be ominous and confusing. 

As a general rule, instead of processed deli meats, choose lean meats like chicken or turkey breast accompanied by an array of fresh vegetables. And instead of chips and other processed snacks, choose fresh fruit. 

But be careful about fruit juices. Although they may contain many vitamins, juices can also pack a lot of sugar.

Healthy foods taste great, and, with a bit of creativity, you can create healthy meals for your family that will support liver health.

  • Limit the amount of alcohol you drink

Cut back on alcohol or stop entirely - drinking alcohol is incredibly taxing on the liver, which has to go to work to remove the alcohol from the blood. 

Like I said earlier, years of even moderate use can be an unwanted path to liver disease further down the road and cause a whole host of health issues. 

I invite you to think through the drink.

  • Take A Liver Support Supplement

Cleanse and detox the liver every day by taking a powerful supplement - this helps to clear pesticides, medications, heavy metals and the remnants of years or alcohol use out of your system, resulting in a healthy liver.

We recommend Swan Vitality Liver Cleanse, which consists of amazing detoxification and antioxidant ingredients including artichoke leaf, milk thistle, turmeric, calcium, selenium, green tea extract, Vitamin D3 and truebroc, which has so many nutrients packed into it, it’s like eating the equivalent of a pound of broccoli.

Every ingredient has been carefully selected to support cleansing the liver and generate overall daily health.

Final Thoughts

Cleansing and detoxing the liver helps to clear pesticides, medications, heavy metals and the remnants of cancer therapy out of your system, resulting in a healthy liver.

To keep your liver healthy through the years, take care of it daily.

Maintain a healthy diet without processed foods, high in vegetables and take a daily liver cleanse supplement.

Here’s to your healthy liver.
