Most people like carrots, another vegetable that is particularly good for the liver. An excellent detoxification food.
Anything that encourages the liver will ultimately help the whole system to function better. This vegetable is more effective when eaten raw like most fruit and vegetables, as cooking carrots increases their GI rating quite a lot. Carrots can be grated into a salad or cut into sticks to eat with home-made dips, like guacamole or hummus.
