Depending on lifestyle, the liver can be put under a lot of stress. While the liver can regenerate, if this stress is continual there is simply no opportunity for regeneration to take place. Examples of factors that can stress the liver include drinking excessive quantities of alcohol and ‘orals,’ including prohormones. If you subject your liver through either of these factors, take a look at our liver health supplements – designed to provide comprehensive liver support.
Liver Support Supplements FAQS
Liver support supplements are any kind of nutritional supplement designed to support normal function of your liver. The liver performs a wide range of functions in the body, including cleaning your blood, producing hormones, synthesising proteins and supporting digestion, so it’s useful to support your liver with adequate nutrition.
Because your liver performs such a wide range of important functions in your body—most importantly cleaning your blood and keeping your body clean in the process—the benefits of liver support supplements potentially span your entire body. Some people report a general feeling of good health and comfortable function of their organs.
Like any other nutritional supplement, liver support supplements are healthy as part of a healthy, balanced diet with an active lifestyle. They’re intended to supplement a diverse intake of food by providing extra nutrition for your liver. They should not be used as a meal replacement, and you should always take them following the instructions provided.
Most liver support supplements are intended to build upon the nutrition you get from your regular meals, so we generally advise taking them with meals so they’re absorbed with other nutrients. Otherwise, you can take your liver support supplements at whatever time you would normally take any other nutritional supplements you take, such as first thing in the morning or just before bed.
Liver support supplements are suitable for anyone and everyone, but they’re particularly good for anyone who is concerned about their liver health. Because many of your body and organ functions weaken as you get older, liver support supplements are particularly good for older people who may be concerned about their liver health.
Liver support supplements come in a wide variety of preparations, including vegan and vegetarian forms, and contain an even wider range of nutrients. They’re most popular in pill, tablet or softgel form as an easy supplement to take every day, but you can also get them in powders that can be mixed into DIY nutritional blends. The most popular products include our Complete Multivitamin Complex™ pills and powders.
Liver support supplements have a wide variety of different effects, some of which are difficult to compare, so it’s not really a question of more or less powerful. Most people choose to support their liver by taking one of our Complete Multivitamin Complex™ preparations so they’re supporting their whole body, but you can also get individual ingredients that can be added to other formulas to support your liver.
Again, each liver support supplement has different intended effects and benefits, so it’s difficult to choose a ‘best’ one. Choline Bitartrate is particularly popular as a liver support supplement – it’s typically grouped in with the B Vitamin family, and is ideal for anyone concerned about supporting their liver function.
