As per a study conducted by researchers at Texas A&M AgriLife Research, indole, a natural compound found in many widely consumed vegetables can help combat fatty liver disease. The research shows that indole can reduce inflammation and fatty deposits and thus control non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The largest internal organ in the human body, the liver plays numerous roles – from filtering the blood which comes from the digestive tract before it goes to the rest of the body, detoxification to the production of bile that helps digest our food and protein synthesis to storing vital fats and minerals.
