Can be helpfull: Yes. This can be beneficial but does not replace good liver living. To ensure good liver health either don’t drink alcohol or limit your intake (1 drink for females & 2 for males/ day). Be proactive with hepatitis b (& a) vaccination. Avoid risks like sharing needles (iv drug use), unprotected sex or lack of sanitation with piercings & tattoos. Protect from blood and fecal contact when>>.

necessary. Maintain a healthy weight & keep high fat foods to a minimum. Only take medications as directed. Take all required precautions when working with toxic chemicals, insecticides or paint.
