Dietitian's Answer

Without knowing specifics I'll have to direct you to your Dr.
In general,
- the herb milk thistle helps with liver health
- betaine found in beets, broccoli, grains, and spinach may help protect against harmful fatty deposits in the liver.
-Selenium (Brazil nuts), vitamin E (sunflower seeds/almonds/leafy greens), and probiotics (kimchi) have also been linked to improvements in liver health.

The following foods will help the liver detoxify. They should all be organic.
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 detoxifying properties 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.
From a fruit stand point berries, apples, lemons, limes, grapefruits, peaches, and plums are higher in fiber and lower in sugar.
