No: This is a very general question as there is a great variety of liver detox supplements and some are certainly much better than others, but the whole point of liver detox supplements is to improve health (while making money for the manufacturer). They generally contain herbs like milk thistle and dandelion that are safe and effective. For best results choose ones that have organic herbs.

Given your further info, Renew Life is a good company with quality products. I expect their Liver Detox formulas will help. For Non-Alcoholic Fatty LIver Disease a low-glycemic diet is very important- esp. avoid high fructose corn syrup. See http://bit.ly/1l0v1eV
