To flush out toxins from the liver, take supplements or drink a special liquid concoction, according to WebMD. Antioxidant vitamins can also help rid the body of unwanted toxins within the liver.
Milk thistle is used in a variety of ways for liver flushing. It is available as powdered seeds, leaves, flowers or in liquid form, notes WebMD. Some people choose to eat milk thistle in a salad, while others roast the seeds and use them as a coffee substitute. For those who wish to drink a flavorful concoction, milk thistle can be combined with dandelion root, fennel seed, celery seed, wahoo root bark and a few other natural ingredients depending on a person's taste preferences and desired health benefits.
The exact amount of milk thistle to consume is not clear, explains WebMD. Milk thistle is often used for a variety of liver problems, including ridding the liver of damage caused by harmful chemicals, jaundice and chronic inflammatory liver disease. Milk thistle works similar to a laxative and has few side effects when taken orally, including nausea, bloating and indigestion. It may not be safe for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding; it is best to consult with a health care professional or avoid taking milk thistle during this time.
