Liver Supplements For Humans
Is it necessary to take medicine for liver functioning (Himalaya liver 52ds) while taking supplements (whey protein, BCAAs, glutamine, creatine etc)?
Unnatural substances: Taking multiple substances sold as supplements or body enhancers is unnatural (eating food is natural), and such supplements are not tested for effects and side effects, compared to the testing that is required of real medications. Thus, all sorts of claims can be made by sellers and other people, but in reality nobody knows for sure what good or bad things can happen. As they say, "Buyer beware." ...Read more

It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
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).

Is the hepadiet supplement helps to reduce high liver enzymes caused by liver metastatic cancer.This supplement includes artichoke leves- milk thistle?
Don't spend too much: I'm sorry i can't offer you more. A concoction of milk thistle (which has failed most scientific testing for liver disease) and artichoke leaves and other cheap vegetables appeals to the imagination and emotion of people who are desperate. And there's no reason to treat a lab value. Enjoy what time you have, and if the metastases are troublesome (often they aren't), perhaps local rx can help. ...Read more

Liver and thyroid: Fatty liver is common with obesity/metabolic syndrome. Best treatment: weight loss, any way you can get it. I am not a fan of orlistat. Have you read about the side effects? Most people don't take more than a few doses. I doubt milk thistle (silymarin) will help, but it is harmless. If you are hypothyroid, you need to be on levothyroxine replacement. ...Read more

0.1ppm: Drinking water rarely exceeds 0.1 parts per million (ppm), deemed a safe level for wilson's disease. Testing is not so much for fear of exceeding 0.1ppm, but to make sure your home/school is not prone to excessive leaching (example: acidic water in copper pipes). Consistent levels <0.1ppm mean leaching is unlikely. Flushing copper pipes (let water run) is recommended before drinking/cooking. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not usually: The guideline from nephrology is to have protein amount 1 gm/ kg, so as an example if your weight is 75 kg and your kidney function is normal then you can take 75 gm of protein per day.
