You need to really look after your liver as it’s the most important organ in the body, otherwise known as ‘our lifeline’ as it’s responsible for 500 functions. Now I will not go into them all now but the good news is the liver repairs itself every 28 days so there is light at the end of the tunnel. Asparagus is a great liver cleanser for soup, juice or as a vegetable dish for dinner. It is loaded with nutrients such as fibre, folate, vitamins A,C, E & K plus chromium to really help control weightloss. Asparagus is a rich source of glutathione which is a detoxifying compound that helps to break down carcinogens and clear out other free radicals. In addition asparagus contains high levels of the amino acid asparagine which acts as a natural diruretic to increase urine flow and flush out excess toxins and salt.
