Maybe. Research suggests that intermittent fasting can reduce liver weight and rewire liver metabolism in mice. This may result in the health benefits of fasting. It can also provide approaches for therapeutic intervention in diseases like Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). However, its mechanism has to be studied further.

Another research suggests that intermittent fasting can be helpful for weight management and improvement of liver enzymes. Nevertheless, further studies have to be done to find out its long-term feasibility and safety.

So, there is a scope for improving liver health through fasting, but as of now there is a lack of conclusive studies.
