If you have any concerns about the health of your liver or if you suffer from hepatitis C, there's new evidence that a three-nutrient cocktail can protect your liver. In fact, several studies say it's possible you can stop the damage to your liver, actually reverse your lab values, and, in many severe cases, avoid the need for a liver transplant. And you can do all this without taking any drugs!
In one tiny, but very exciting study, three patients used the triple antioxidant combination of alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin, and selenium to treat hepatitis C. The patients took the triple-nutrient combination, recovered quickly, and their laboratory values improved. Furthermore, they all avoided liver transplants and they returned to work and their normal activities. All of them reported that they were feeling healthy.
But this tiny study wasn't the only proof that these nutrients can work wonders. In fact, it just confirmed what researchers found out back in the 1970s. Over 30 years ago, researchers from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) followed 79 people with severe liver damage. Of those, 75 recovered full liver function by taking only alpha-lipoic acid.
While all three of these nutrients can protect your liver from the free radical damage that hepatitis infections cause, I wouldn't stop there. I would also take phosphatidylcholine (at least 125 mg daily, but you can take up to 1,200 mg twice a day), licorice (1,000 mg daily), quercetin (250 mg daily), N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (75 mg daily).
And the doses for the three nutrients used in these studies are: alpha-lipoic acid (at least 100 mg daily, but you can take up to 300 mg twice a day), selenium (at least 50 mcg per day, but you can take up to 600 mcg per day), and silymarin (at least 100 mg daily, but you can take up to 300 mg three times a day).
Taking these nutrients can have a huge impact on the health of your liver. And most people today have some type of liver trouble, whether it's something as severe as hepatitis C or a less severe, but still dangerous fatty liver. Fortunately, you can get all of these nutrients in one easy-to-take supplement called Advanced Liver Support, which you can order by following this link.
