Thee liver is one of the largest (and most vital) organs in the body. It performs hundreds of functions, including processing nutrients from food, creating bile to flush out toxins from the body, and synthesizing and distributing protein throughout the body—so it is imperative we keep it healthy and maintained.
Unfortunately, due to the chemicals and pesticides found in the food we consume, our livers can sometimes be overwhelmed with toxic buildup. If our livers are “overtaxed” and aren’t properly detoxed, it can lead to digestive issues, PMS, headaches, indigestion, abdominal bloating, weight gain, liver spots, gallbladder issues, heartburn, and more.
Turmeric Tea and Liver Detox
One way to keep the liver healthy is through detoxification. Turmeric tea is known to be one of the top liver detoxifiers—this substance stimulates the gallbladder to produce bile, which the liver then uses to eliminate toxins.
Turmeric is a plant that comes from the ginger family and is widely used in India for its medicinal properties. It has a bright yellow color—the agent that gives it that yellow color is a phytochemical called curcumin. Curcumin stimulates the production of bile by the gallbladder. The liver will use that bile to eliminate the toxins that have been consumed and flush them out.
When the liver eliminates certain toxins, the cells are rejuvenated by the bile. For this reason alone, turmeric has been widely used to treat digestion and liver issues.
