Also known as hepatic steatosis, fatty liver is a condition in which excessive accumulation of fat occurs in the cells of the organ.
Caused by several factors, including excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance and a sedentary lifestyle, fatty liver affects around 25% to 30% of the Brazilian population, according to recent research.
According to experts, although homemade and natural methods do not replace medical treatment, they can complement it.
Check out options that can help fight fatty liver:
Some studies suggest that consuming artichoke tea may have benefits for liver health, including reducing fat. It is believed that the compounds present in the plant can help stimulate the production of bile, which facilitates digestion and helps eliminate toxins from the liver.
Additionally, artichokes can also help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, factors that are often associated with fatty liver disease.
Dandelion is a plant known for its diuretic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which can contribute to liver health.
Some animal studies suggest that dandelion extracts may help decrease fat accumulation in the liver. In addition, dandelion is also rich in bioactive compounds, such as flavonoids and terpenoids, which may have liver-protective properties and aid in the regeneration of liver cells.
Adequate hydration is essential for the general health of the body, including the liver. Drinking enough water helps eliminate toxins and waste from the body, contributing to the proper functioning of the organ.
Regular physical exercise
Regular physical activity can help reduce liver fat, improve insulin sensitivity and promote weight loss. Consult a healthcare professional for guidance on the most appropriate exercises for your case.
