Top 10 Foods That Reverse Fatty Liver

9. Grass-fed beef liver

Everyone loves a good steak, but did you know that cooking up some beef liver may be even more beneficial for your liver?

This is because the beef liver is rich in folate and B12, the two B vitamins whose deficiency correlates to the progression of fatty liver[3] disease.

The liver is not your jam?

In that case, you can go for other cuts of grass-fed beef, free-range chicken and eggs, wild caught fish and shellfish, and grass-fed dairy — as they’re packed with both of these nutrients.

8. Milk Thistle

This prickly plant native to Europe is loaded with compounds our liver loves, namely its active compound silymarin, which is abundant in liver-protecting benefits.

Milk thistle [4] is typically taken in the form of a supplement by people suffering from both varieties of fatty liver — alcoholic and nonalcoholic, as well as hepatitis.

How does this work?

Milk thistle lowers the liver inflammation and damage caused by free radicals.

Not only that — according to one study [5], silymarin led to a slight increase in survival rates of patients suffering from cirrhotic alcoholism when compared to the control group.

7. Probiotic yogurt

We all know that yogurt is packed with good bacteria and important for our gut health, but did you know that it could help you reverse your fatty liver condition?

While more research on the correlation between the changes in our gut and the start of fatty liver disease is underway, so far probiotics have been proven to have beneficial effects [6] on the gut microbiome, gut-liver axis and boosting liver enzymes in patients suffering from non-alcoholic fatty liver.
