I am supposed to take iron pills. Can I just take a vitamin, eat liver and cook with iron skillets?

I am supposed to take iron pills. Can I just take a vitamin, eat liver and cook with iron skillets?

Yes, but also...: Iron pills are often poorly absorbed and cause side effects, so obtaining iron from your diet is a good strategy. Chicken & beef liver are good choices but I strongly advise organically-raised animals. Other good sources of iron include beans, lentils, tofu, spinach, raisins, clams, oysters, beef & chicken.

Are there any vitamins or herbs that help 'cleanse' the liver? Sometimes I have to take high doses of acetaminophen.

Are there any vitamins or herbs that help 'cleanse' the liver? Sometimes I have to take high doses of acetaminophen.

Not proven help: You did not say the dose but always avoid more than 4000 milligrams of acetaminophen. There have been no good blinded studies to prove anything works but it is recommended to take Vitamins B, C, E, and beta-carotene, minerals like selenium and zinc, and herbs of milk thistle and dandelion which could help but no definite proof. Drink lots of water to hydrate. I hope this will help. ...Read more

I take a vitamin D every day 1000 mg will this affect my liver? Should I go down in mg I am 55 years old

I take a vitamin D every day 1000 mg will this affect my liver? Should I go down in mg I am 55 years old

I'm worried you: Have reported the incorrect units. Vitamin D (usually taken in the Vitamin D3 form) is usually dosed in IU's -- International Units NOT mg (milligrams). If you were taking 1000 MG it would be something like 40 million IU's! So assuming you are really taking 1000 IU's daily, that dose is very reasonable, considered safe, and shouldn't affect your liver. All supplements should be reviewed with Doc:) ...Read more

What vitamins or supplements should I take to help prevent liver damage from drinking?

What vitamins or supplements should I take to help prevent liver damage from drinking?

Don't drink so much: There are no pills/supplements/treatments that "protect" your liver from alcohol. None. If you're drinking so much that you're worried about your liver, then you're drinking too much. The only way to protect your liver from the damage done by excessive alcohol consumption is to curtail your alcohol consumption, because early on, the damage is reversible. Contact your doctor for help or call a.A. ...Read more

I take amlodipine 5mg Atenolol 50 mg daily. Vitamin D2 50, 000 units capsules for 12 weeks for Vitamin Def 25. Can I take Mag 07 and Liver Rescue 5+?

I take amlodipine 5mg Atenolol 50 mg daily. Vitamin D2 50, 000 units capsules for 12 weeks for Vitamin Def 25. Can I take Mag 07 and Liver Rescue 5+?

Would avoid: Mag07 and Liver Rescue are self-described laxatives and herbal supplements. As with all herbal products, they are not regulated for safety, purity & effectiveness. I wouldn't recommend them for anybody largely because of lack of effectiveness vs danger. I would be especially careful to avoid laxative-based supplements if I were taking meds that lower blood pressure as you are. Good luck! ...Read more
