5.0 out of 5 stars My opinion, February 12, 2010
I had blood tests last month at the doctor, I have serious joint problems and presently I am taking medicine and cortisone shots in multiple joints so my doc wanted to take blood tests. I was also feeling a bit 'toxic' to put it mildly, had zero energy and completely lost my appetite. The blood test came back a bit elevated and my doc gave me a diet to follow and was told to go buy milk thistle and come back in a month for a follow up. Well, I went to the health food store and bought this stuff since the guy said it contains milk thistle and other stuff that will help, and I also bought vit b6, vit C and vit E, and something called NAC and ALA. I took the liver regen only the first day and vit e because I didn't want to take different stuff the first day. The next day, I felt so much better and not 'toxic' at all. Like night and day. My appetite returned with a vengeance. This stuff actually works. Im waiting on my next round of blood tests, but I can already tell they will be better. Plus Im still taking the medicine and am continuing with the joint injections. Im ordering more online, much much cheaper. I wish I could order new joints.

Say no to Vitamin C if you have a liver disorder. It enables the body absorb even more of it. The rest of your vitamins and herbs seem spot on.

What are you talking about? The medicine he mentioned was FROM THE DOCTOR and in conjunction with the cortisone shots. Many medications from the legal drug cartel known as the pharmaceutical industry and pushed by doctors are not good for the liver (heart, kidneys, stomach, etc).

For something like serious joint pain, I'm going to assume he was taking a hydrocodone/paracetamol pain killer like Vicodin (and probably 2-3 times a day). And as you should already know paracetamol (known as acetaminophen, Tylenol, etc) is absolutely horrible for the liver.

YET, doctors never advise patients that they should take a daily NAC (N-acetylcysteine) supplement to counter/prevent the liver damage/alteration that long term paracetamol use will likely cause. NAC (and milk thistle) is a precursor to glutathione (naturally produced in the body in small amounts), a powerful anti-oxidant that will bind to the toxic metabolites (NAPQI) that are a by-product of paracetamol and neutralize them before liver damage occurs.

In fact, if you're a regular drinker you should take a NAC supplement to help protect your liver.

I'm wondering why you are saying no C. I thought that was good with elevated liver tests?

For your joints, I suggest taking Glucosamine Condroitin with MSM, as well as Omega 3's and Turmeric.
My joints have been whacked out too, but feel so much better after taking these supplements.

Best of luck!!

John says:
Why do you say no to Vitamin C? Vitamin C is water-soluble. When a vitamin is water-soluble, this means that your body eliminates what it does not use through your urine, and therefore, the excess is not stored. Because your body cannot store vitamin C, it is nearly impossible for you to overdose on it, and it is not likely to harm your liver or other organs. The tolerable upper limit of vitamin C has been set at 2,000 mg per day, notes MedlinePlus, and this is largely because high doses can cause diarrhea or other types of digestive upset.
