7-Day Liver Cleanse
During your 7-day liver cleanse, follow a 16:8 intermittent fasting strategy while consuming the following liquid meals during your eating window. Don’t worry, these liquid meals are incredibly nutritious and absolutely delicious. You will feel satisfied during the entire 7-day liver cleanse. This is a great strategy to do every quarter or once or twice a year depending upon your health goals.
Each morning of your 7-day liver cleanses, drink 32 ounces of lemon/lime water or apple cider vinegar water within the first 3 hours of waking, followed by 1–2 cups of a specific liver detox tea. Dandy Liver Detox Tea is specifically created to support liver cleansing with the help of dandelions.
For the first meal of your day, enjoy a delicious gut-healing smoothie.
Liver Cleanse Smoothie
- 1–2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
- ½–1 small avocado
- 2 scoops Gut Healing Protein: a protein powder created to support your digestion, detoxication, and antioxidant balance while supplying you with clean protein
- ½ cup organic berries (optional)
Blend all ingredients together. Enjoy.
For your second meal, enjoy another glass of the Liver Cleanse Smoothie using the same recipe you did for breakfast.
For dinner, choose one of the following delicious liver-supporting soups:
Before Bed on The Liver Cleanse
Before bed, I recommend a cup of Dandy Liver Detox Tea or Nighty Night Tea if you have trouble sleeping. These herbal teas can help open up the drainage pathways, support proper detoxification, and promote quality sleep.
The Nighty Night Tea is minty and sweet with a note of citrus and spice and is designed for a good night’s sleep. Good sleep is an important component of the detox process, so be sure to prioritize your sleep.
Optional Supplements To Support the Liver Cleanse
To further support your 7-day liver cleanse and detoxication, I recommend some optional supplements. Taking one or a few of these will help you get better results during your liver cleanse.
Bile Flow Support is a fantastic supplement for liver and digestive support. It is a specialized formula that provides liver support with nutrients involved in bile flow and fat metabolism, including choline, taurine, and methionine.
Normal Dosage: Take 2 capsules at the end of each meal
Advanced Dosage: Take 3–4 capsules at the end of each meal
Liver Support is a synergistic formula designed to support healthy liver function. It consists of a strong dose of milk thistle which is known to help regenerate liver cells, support healthy bile flow and optimize phase I and II liver detoxification.
There is also a blend of botanical and mushroom extracts, along with N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC), a derivative of the amino acid cysteine, which has powerful antioxidant and liver-protective actions. In addition to protecting the body from oxidative stress, NAC assists with the formation of glutathione, the predominant antioxidant found in the liver.
Normal Dosage: 2 caps – 2x daily with or without food
Advanced Dosage: 2 caps – 3x daily with or without food
GI Detox is designed to bind to bile sludge, mycotoxins, microbial toxins and environmental toxins. If you have struggled with gas, bloating, poor liver and gut health and bile sludge then this supplement may be very helpful for you. Take 2 capsules one hour before your first meal and 2 capsules 1 hour before your last meal.
Normal Dosage: Take 2 capsules – about 1–2 hours before your largest meal of the day
Advanced Dosage: Take 2–4 capsules – about 1–2 hours before 2–3 meals each day
Final Thoughts on The Liver Cleanse
Toxins are everywhere, in the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the products we use. Toxic overload in your body, however, may lead to inflammation, fatigue, pain, and disease. To reduce the risk of health issues and to boost your health, it is important that you support your body’s detoxification systems, most importantly your liver, your body’s largest detoxifying organs.
