Read my other article about tamarind here

I have had liver problem since the age of 24. I have been on medicine since then and I was always told that my liver was fatty.

This fat liver caused all sort of problems. See the below picture to get an idea as to what is a fatty and non fatty liver. On the left is the healthy liver.

Healthy liver and fatty liver

If you think that our liver is our biggest organ. And if you think that its function is to help our bodies to digest food. You add to this that it is there to help in storing energy and finally remove any type of potential  poison.

No wonder why my doctors told me that my problems were due the fat around my liver.

There was so much fat that my liver could not function properly.

I had to visit my doctor every three month. The aim was to get a check up and each time I was handed over a renewal sheet of paper with full of medicines to take. It was party time!

I have to say that I had enough of medicines and I simply decided to see if there was a plant around the world that could help me out clearing this fat issue.

Well I found it, it was Tamarind. It is  not the only one, and I shall provide other plants in the next couple of weeks. But this one worked very well for me. So that’s why I want to provide you with a short recipe and a information about the fruit itself.

What is Tamarind?

Tamarind is a tree. This tree makes some fruits. And it is this fruit that is used to make natural medicines. It is also this fruit that I used to remove my liver fat.

Tamarind has many names. It is called Imlee, Imli, Tamarin, Tamarindo, Tamarindus indica, Tamarinier, Tamarinier d’Inde, Tintiri and obviously Tamarind.

Tamarind fruit to get rid of fat in your liver

This fruit is well known in India. And no wonder, India is the largest producer of the fruit.

This fruit has been used for centuries over there. It has been used for constipation, stomach disorders, gallbladder and liver problems.

In some instances, it is also used to treat colds and fever.

When used in foods and drinks, tamarind is known to act as an additive for flavoring. It is widely used in Asian cooking for chutneys and curries.


The liver is know to have some strange abilities to renew itself. It can regrow on its own and that is why scientists perform ablation of livers.

Unfortunately, there are times when your liver can weaken and that’s when it hurts you entire body.

When you do a blood test, doctors can tell if you have a fatty liver. With nowadays snacks and fast food, it is most likely that you are one of the victims of fatty liver.

The consequences are alarming. If you are diagnosed with fatty liver; then you are at risk, with the worse case scenario being death. Do not worry, this condition is really rare and under extreme measures where you do not take action. However, if you are reading this, you are one of those people, who like me, take action.

The good news is that there are many ways that you can remove fat from your liver.

One way is to stop sugar intake, fatty food, and snacks. This is the slow motion way if you like.

Another way is to use medicines. Not really for us.

The third way, which is what I have done after years being under heavy medicine, is to use natural remedies.

What does blood tests show you?

Before I tell you about a Tamarind recipe, I want to say that if you have a fatty liver, then blood tests will show up like you are a heavy drinker.

It may or may not be the case.

If you are not an alcohol drinker, and when the blood tests will show this, it means that you have a fatty liver. In this case, you will not feel anything, but your liver will do. You may have yellow eyes, feel a little unwell when eating certain types of food, but not all type.

But in many case, you may have what is called as a nonalcoholic steatohepatitis disfunction. This problem is not dangerous, but in the long run it can cause liver failure and even cancer. So better take action.

Being overweight and under obesity conditions makes you the perfect candidate for this and under greater risk  to contract such failure.

Tamarind is made to fight fatty livers

Tamarind is simply a great fruit that can remove the fat from your liver.

The fruit on its own is great. But the peel is also really good for it. You can make an infusion that can help healing your liver.

What tamarind does is that it purify, helps digest, and contains fibers and instituted acids that protect your the liver.

Drinking the infusion can cure bile problems and lowers cholesterol. This is why I think this fruit is great.

Tamarind recipe to fight fatty livers

Here is what I promised you. A nice brief recipe to flush your liver from fat. If you do not know where to get tamarind, then I got covered. Click on the picture below.

Tamarind dulce

And here you can find the Organic certified honey

Tamarind recipe ingredients

1- Two handfuls of peeled tamarind

2- One liter of water

3- Spoon of honey


Take the two handful of the peeled tamarind and put them in a blender.

Add the liter of water to it and a spoon of honey.

Blend the lot till you get an even mixture.

Now drink this juice on a daily basis for 7 to 10 days. You should have your liver free of fat.

Repeat this once a month or every two month if you can.

I usually drink it once every three days. It works better for me. All our bodies are different, so try to find what works best for your liver.

You can increase the level of honey if you feel it needs a little bit more sweetening.

Et voila! You are done.

Infusion recipe

If you prefer to do an infusion, then you just need 25 tamarind leaves.

Wash these. Then put then in a liter of water.

Put these to point where the water will start to boil, but do not allow the water to boil. Note this is really important for the infusion to be successful.

So when the water is at the point of boiling, just reduce the knob and leave it for a couple of minutes. About 5 minutes should do.

When done, just leave it to cool and rest for an hour.

Again, add a little bit of sweetener in the form of honey. Try to avoid sugar, and if you cannot, then use brown sugar (less chemicals in brown sugar then white one).

I always advise that you drink it without sweeteners and sugar. But hey we are all different.

I do this infusion with the peels / shells. Same method. I usually add a little bit of cinnamon.

My advice is to take this infusion twice a day. At night before sleeping and once in the morning.

I am sure you’ll get a big thank you from your liver.
