When the liver becomes dysfunctional, we begin to build up impurities in our blood stream, our sugar metabolism levels are altered, and our hormones which regulate energy levels and mood are affected. If the liver becomes so toxic, or sick to the point where it is completely non-functional, drastic medical measures, like a transplant, are needed.
Superfoods are important to keep your liver healthy, for a guilt-free snack during the day eat Bliss Superfood Balls. Detoxing your liver every once in a while will do you the world of good, use a liver cleanser such as Liver Ally or help your liver by giving it the needed suppliments, such as Barley Grass Powder or Hemp Seed Oil.
HOLFORD’S SUPERFOOD WET MUESLI
Issued on behalf of Brunel Laboratoria by UrbanHouse Media: Heather Mullon
This thick, soaked muesli is delicious and particularly nutritious, as all the ingredients are raw, maximising the vitamin, enzyme and antioxidant content.
- 40g whole rolled porridge oats
- 1 tbsp. ground almonds or desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp. of Patrick Holford’s Essential Seed Mix – made up of a combination of pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and flax seeds kept in a sealed jar in the fridge.
- ½ small apple, grated
- 1 tbsp. berries, such as raspberries or blueberries
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon, or to taste.
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and cover with double the amount of boiling water stir and leave to thicken for a couple of minutes until the oats have soaked up the water and come soft and plump.
