Protect Your Liver Naturally

LiverVitamin E supplements may help treating the liver naturally. A study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, shows that participants were assigned to receive 800 IU of vitamin E per day, 30 mg of a medication used to increase insulin sensitivity (pioglitazone) per day, or placebo for 96 weeks. They underwent liver biopsies at the beginning and end of the trial and were monitored for 24 weeks after the end of treatment.

Participants taking vitamin E supplements were able to repair the liver by reducing fat deposits forming in liver cells, inflammation and scarring (steatohepatitis) which can eventually progress to cirrhosis and liver failure. Although the exact cause of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is not fully understood, insulin resistance and obesity clearly play a role. The primary finding of this study says that vitamin E was superior to placebo for the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis in adults without diabetes.

Additionally, other supplements can naturally support your liver. For example, milk thistle is the number one herbal product recommended for liver health, confirmed by hundreds of clinical studies to protect the liver against virtually all types of damage. Many years of research shows the active flavanoid-lignan (flavanolignan) group of constituents, called silymarin, has liver-protective and regenerative properties, as well as antioxidant effects. When choosing a milk thistle product, be sure to consider the absorbability of the product as standard silymarin is known to be poorly absorbed by the liver.

Lastly, research indicates that alpha lipoic acid and a variety of amino acids can also support liver health.

    Progressive physicians do understand this connection between Vitamin E, milk thistle and other ingredients that address both the liver disease precursor [leaky gut] and NAFLD together. Liver Medic makes an entire line of products dedicated to this and are recommended by these same progressive physicians. Good health to you.
