What foods are good for the liver and pancreas?
Kind time of the day, friends. The theme of healthy nutrition is more popular than ever. In this regard, I want to ask you a question: which organs and body systems are most vulnerable to the quality of our products and the way we cook food? It is obvious that this is the digestive system. It is the system, my friends, in which each mechanism performs a certain function. The most important components of the digestive system are the liver and pancreas.
I will explain if one of you still does not know: the liver is the organ that carries the main load in the body, fulfilling the role of the filtering mechanism. Neutralize and remove harmful substances that are formed in the body as a result of metabolic processes, as well as toxins that get into the body from the outside – this is a direct functional task of the liver.
The duties of the pancreas are the production of enzymes directly involved in the cleavage of food components. In addition to improper nutrition, the contaminated ecology also exerts additional strain on the liver and pancreas.
Industrial poisons that enter the body by inhalation can lead to dysfunction of the most important organs. The ability of the liver to process and neutralize poisons is not unlimited, otherwise there would be no poisoning. Therefore, in order to facilitate the work of the fundamental elements of the system, thus securing your own life, it is important to consume products useful for the liver and pancreas. This is especially true for people who are actively involved in sports.
It is unacceptable to abuse protein food and specific additives to build muscle. The bodies responsible for processing are not able to cope with the excess volume of protein metabolism toxins, and are forced to work on wear and tear.
But, my friends, that’s enough for this horror story. Further information will be more positive, and most importantly, useful. Let’s answer the question: how can we help the liver and pancreas work in the most favorable and stable mode?
If we change the external environment, eliminating the negative factors, we can not, then provide a comfortable internal atmosphere to our body are fully capable. And even have to do it. You agree with me?
First of all, we need to adjust the diet, in order to enrich it with the right products for the full operation of the pancreas and liver. More details in my article.
The right products
To the category of the right, are products rich in mineral substances, fiber, amino acids and vitamins:
Carrots, beets, broccoli, cauliflower. Sufficient intake of these vegetables will help us to activate the process of carcinogen withdrawal, normalize metabolic processes and improve blood circulation.
Pumpkin. In the root crop contains a lot of magnesium, which helps in the recovery of already damaged cells, and does not let the cells get healthy. Also, there is a rare vitamin T, which accelerates the absorption of heavy food, which is important for unloading the liver. Pumpkin seeds will also be useful.
Onion and garlic. These burning vegetables accelerate liver detoxification.
Fresh greenery. Parsley, dill, celery, various kinds of green salads are actively involved in the synthesis of new cells.
I want to say separately about sea kale. In addition to the record iodine content, the leaves of kelp are rich in natural sorbents – pectins. These substances have the ability to bind heavy metal salts for easier disposal. That is, they help the liver in the process of purification.
- Melon. Just like her vegetable relative, the pumpkin is rich in magnesium.
- Green apples. It is a source of potassium and iron
- Oranges, tangerines, lemons, grapefruits provide us with vitamin C
- Dried apricots and prunes. These dried fruits well fill the lack of sodium and phosphorus in the body.
Kefir and low-fat cottage cheese. It is a storehouse of useful substances: chrome, selenium, fluoride, potassium, zinc, vitamins A, B, PP and D. And still sour-milk products have anti-inflammatory effects and fight with microbes.
Cod, pollock, flounder, haddock, pike. They contain fatty amino acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, phosphorus, zinc, calcium, iodine, vitamins A, D, E. All of them contribute to the qualitative work of not only the liver and pancreas, but the whole organism.
Also mandatory part of our menu. Its small amount helps purify the blood. And the vitamin E present in this product is able to protect our body from the negative effects of radiation and air poisoned by harmful substances.
It is a natural antioxidant, which helps to cleanse the liver.
Porridges do not load the pancreas and liver, and also accelerate metabolism. Therefore, necessarily include in the diet of buckwheat, rice, “Hercules”.
- Fatty meat and fish
- Fatty cheeses
These products are burdensome for processing their pancreas, as well as a lack of bile, which dissolves fats in the body, can poison the liver.
Products cooked by smoking and roasting
Additional aggressive processing of products, entails and additional load on the liver.
They contain sharp seasonings and harmful preservatives.
In this block, I would like to highlight mayonnaise. Industrially processed useful vegetable fat becomes extremely harmful. I urge all lovers of this sauce to say goodbye to him once and for all. For an alternative, take low-fat sour cream or natural yogurt.
So, we got acquainted with the possibilities to minimize the negative impact of food consumed, by rejecting harmful foods, including only foods useful for the liver and pancreas in the daily diet. Adhering to the rules of healthy eating, we will provide protection to these bodies and their full functioning.
