In addition to your healthy diet, drink a cup or two of lemon ginger tea each day. Lemon and ginger are gentle liver detoxifiers, and will support your liver and cleanse your body at the same time. 

To make the tea, use any tea that you typically enjoy drinking. Oolong and green tea are perfect bases. Add a 1" piece of garlic and 1/3 lemon juice (fresh squeezed!) to your tea and allow it steep for 20-30 minutes before drinking.
