Milk thistle extract, Lecithin, L-Cysteine w/ Vitamin C, most anti-oxdidants, L-Taurine glutathione.

Milk Thistle(the herb).

Drink lots of alcohol. Alcohol kills off the dead and weak cells, leaving your stronger ones.

I used to use milk thistle, until it was brought to my attention that the evidence for it is sketchy, and found only minor results with much less than a huge dose. Tyler’s Liver Detox is a good product, but 1+ grams of alpha lipoic acid a day seems to work well by all accounts, too.

Tyler brand Detoxification factors.


You can you a product called SAM-E that is
used in Europe for depression, arthritis
and liver disease. It is said to be able to
even help with a liver that is already damaged
from alcohol abuse and can be used as a protectant when using chemicals.

I usually put my liver in the refrigerator to protect it.
