The #1 Best Fruit for Your Liver - blueberry

You've gotta love your liver. The body's second-largest organ (behind your skin) works hard behind the scenes to keep you alive. You probably know that its primary function is flushing toxins out of the body, but it also processes nutrients from foods, filters the blood and metabolizes the drugs you take, stores glycogen, produces chemicals that help the blood clot, makes bile, and helps regulate blood sugar. Yes, it's a lot.

One thing you can do today to protect your liver is to eat foods that fight liver inflammation. Arguably the best fruit you can eat for good liver health is blueberries.

Wild blueberries have the highest concentration of anthocyanins: a natural pigment that gives the berries that gorgeous blue hue. Data shows that anthocyanins may counteract oxidative stress that can occur in the liver and reduce liver-related inflammation.
Anthocyanins are found in the skins of red, purple, and blue fruits; vegetables; and cereal grains. Research shows that their content is proportional to the density of the color. So, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, currants, and strawberries are all good sources of the antioxidant—the deeper and richer the color the better.
