8 ways to help you cleanse your liver after Christmas

After a season of being merry, you may feel like it’s time to give your liver a break.

This hardworking organ is the biggest gland in the body and has the important task of keeping you well, store vitamins and iron and produce bile to help break down and digest fats, among many other things.

Alcohol, as well as processed and fried foods can affect how your liver functions. So it’s important to make sure you give it a good detox after a busy festive month.
