1. Sugar : The liver makes fat by using a type of sugar called fructose. Refined sugar or corn syrup are rich in fructose, if used too much it leads to liver damage due to fat build up.
2. Too Much Vitamin A From Supplements : Vitamin A is vital component required by your body. It is good to get plenty of vitamin A via fruits or vegetables. But artificial supplements rich in vitamin A may damage your liver extensively.
3. Soft Drinks : Research shows that soft drinks might be a reason for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(NAFLD). Studies have not yet proved them. Yet if you’re looking to cut back on your soft drinks intake this could be an added reason.
4. Trans Fats : The extra fat in your body also leads to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(NAFLD). Avoid packed food which is rich in trans fat, to reduce weight.
5. Less Alcohol Than You May Think : “Drinking too much is bad for health”. Where have we not heard this. But how do you quantify “too much.” You can easily hurt your liver with one extra round, even though not being an alcoholic. One standard serving is 1.5 ounces in liquor, 5 ounces of wine or 12 ounces of regular beer. The standard quantity would be one drink a day for women and might be a couple for men.
