Best Eating Habit to Protect Your Liver

Vegetables are well-known for their health benefits, such as aiding in heart health and preventing ageing, which is why they should account for a significant portion of your diet.

The NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study looked at 470,653 people who were between the ages of 50 and 71 when the study began.

Simultaneously, 934 people died with chronic liver disease, which was deadly. The findings revealed that people who ate more veggies had a third lower risk of acquiring liver cancer.

"A one-cup increase in vegetable intake (8 oz or 225 g) was related with a 20% reduction in the risk of liver cancer incidence and chronic liver mortality," according to the study.

Lettuce, beans, carrots, and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, bok choy, and collard greens were found to be important in avoiding cancer.

"It's hardly surprising that cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli, which contain sulforaphane, a chemical with anti-cancer characteristics, were featured as the top cancer fighters," says the author.

Sulforaphane is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer chemical found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower.

"Constituents in cruciferous vegetables, such as indole-3-carbinol, a potent anticancer agent, increase both Phase I and II liver enzymes."

In the context of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, sulforaphane appears to be helpful in reducing insulin resistance and decreasing serum triglyceride, total cholesterol, and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels."
