Any specific recommendations for promoting liver health as I begin treatment for Hep-C?
Look into the herb Milk Thistle and also Dandelion root. Milk Thistle is supposed to help repair the liver.
I understand blueberries and pineapple have good antioxidants and liver cleaning health benefits. Turmeric is also supposed to help reduce inflammation of the liver amongst other health benefits. As someone who has finished chemo fighting Non-Hodgekin's Lymphoma and currently disease free, I've made it a point to try and cleanse my liver from all of the chemo that was pumped into me. These three ingredients are in my daily regimen.

Here are some tips to help support liver health: Algae like spirulina and chlorella are very cleansing as are apples, milk thistle, dandelion, flax seed (omega 3's), olive oil, red onions, beets, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, lemons and limes, garlic, artichoke, asparagus, kale, grapefruit, rice bran, green tea and walnuts. Avocados are rich in glutathione which helps the liver detox and repair. Turmeric also helps boost liver function and helps improve gallbladder function. Artichoke and asparagus are very powerful detoxers but don't taste very good in a blast. Milk thistle is also a very good supporting and cleansing herb for the liver. I would mix spirulina, flax seed, rice bran, walnuts, lemon, dandelion, kale, avocado, beets, fresh brewed green tea as the base liquid and stevia and or raw honey if needed. the next blast I would use the same base with some of the other foods. If you regularly include some of these they will continue to provide the liver cleansing support. Always seek professional healthcare advice from a qualified professional if you have health issues and keep your doctor informed of any changes to your diet and lifestyle. From a fruit stand point berries, apples, lemons, limes, grapefruits, peaches, and plums are higher in fiber and lower in sugar.
To promote your liver health, you should follow these steps:
* Don't drink a lot of alcohol
* Eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise
* Watch out for certain medicines
