The best way to protect your liver is to avoid alcohol, ideally completely. Alcohol increases the risk for developing cirrhosis and liver cancer because it really bumps up all that inflammation you’ve been trying to knock down with good food choices. What happens then? The cells in your liver thicken, which means your liver can’t work as well, and you risk cirrhosis in the long run. Try getting creative with non-alcoholic options instead—try products like Seedlip and Curious Elixirs—and make up some zero-proof cocktails that keep you hydrated AND nourished.
