Liver Cleanse

Ive been trying to find some info regarding liver cleansing/detox. Ive found one method involving consuming epsom slats, 1/2 cup of olive oil and lemon juice. Has anybody tried something like this before? What methods have you used and how were the results? Cheers

for liver look up I believe these

N-acetyl cystiene

Sam-E

Milk thistle (the higher % silymarin the better)

you look like your concocting one of those weekend colon cleanse things.

If you have to mix a bunch of strange stuff together…imo…it’s mostly a waste of time lol

I don’t know what epsom salt would do for your liver, but I’m sure you’ll be spending a lot of time on the bowl after drinking that concoction.

milk thistle.simple.

oleic acid (as in olive oil) + lemon juice + epsom salts

what happens is you’ll poop out balls of oleic acid because it combines with some of the other stuff. These balls are supposed to be “stones” of various sorts.

"Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) relax smooth muscle and will relax and dilate the bile duct to enable larger solid particles to pass through. "

I have been taking milk thistle for about a week now. The stuff I have is standardized to 80% silymarin. 1 dose = 175mg, I basically just pop a couple at a time through out the day. Im not really sure if im dosing enough of it and for how long I should be consuming it. I couldnt find much info regarding this. I will do some research on the other supps you mentioned DG.
cheers

Sam-E is the best, but also most expensive.

Milk Thistle downregulates Androgen receptors I believe. I think I read that somewhere.

Either way Hospitals use silymarin so Milk thistle with a good % of silymarin is great for the liver.
