Supplements can play an important protective and preventative for your liver..
The liver plays a vital role in detoxification and nutrient metabolism. Unfortunately, infection, drug use and life-style factors such as alcohol consumption can negatively affect the liver and increase the risk of liver disease such as fatty liver and cirrhosis. Supplements can play an important protective and preventative role here. The herb Milk Thistle is a well-known detoxifier that can promote liver health. The amino acid Glutamine is crucial for glutathione production; the primary anti-oxidant that protects the liver from damage. Other herbs such as Pau D’Arco and Licorice have been traditionally used to assist liver detoxification and digestive function.
