Today’s article focuses on 5 simple natural drinks that will remove all
the fat and toxins from your liver and help you lose weight as well.
Proper liver cleansing is of vital importance for your health. The liver
is essentially a small factory which processes toxins and chemicals and
marks them for elimination, so keeping it working properly at all times
plays a vital role in our wellbeing. Not acting on time can leave
toxins to accumulate in the liver, resulting in a host of health
problems including obesity and fatty liver disease.
This, however, can be prevented with the help of the 5 nighttime drinks
we have for you today. The detox drinks offer other health benefits as
well and they’re easy to prepare, which is why you should start
consuming them today.
How to clean your liver naturally
Traditional Chinese Medicine says that the liver is most active between 1
and 3 AM, which is usually the time we’re in deep sleep. However, if we
had a heavy meal before going to bed, the liver is going to be stuck
processing all the fat and other nutrients from it, so it won’t have
time to repair itself. However, if you provide it with the essential
nutrients it needs, the liver will heal itself overnight and eliminate
all the toxins that have entered your body.
Here are 5 nighttime drinks that can help clean your liver and improve your overall health:
1. Chamomile tea
Chamomile tea is a nice warm beverage full of antioxidants that can help
you fall asleep easier and relax your mind and body. The tea has
anti-inflammatory properties as well, and best of all, it can improve
the function of your liver.
Here’s how to prepare the tea:
*1 tablespoon dry chamomile flowers
*8 oz. of water
It’s simple – bring the water to a boil before adding the flowers and
simmering the tea for 10 minutes. Leave it to cool down afterwards, take
the flowers out and have a cup of the tea before going to bed.
2. Warm lemon water
Warm lemon water is a powerful detoxifying drink that will improve your
health on so many levels. It has diuretic and detoxifying properties and
will definitely help your liver “repair” itself. Here’s how to prepare

Pour a glass of warm water and squeeze the lemon in, then drink the
beverage before sleeping every day for 3 weeks. You should feel much
better after only a week of the treatment.

process and help the body burn more calories. Here’s how to prepare this

mint leaves, steep the tea and strain it in the end. Drink the tea 3
times per week for best results.
