Study: Vitamin E heals your liver in almost half of liver diseases
Here's a brief background on why it works:

Vitamin E is an "anti-oxidant", which means it helps prevent damage from free radicals and other tissue-damaging molecules. Some of the tissue-damaging molecules that anti-oxidants protect against are actually poisons and toxins secreted by infectious bacteria! When your liver is damaged, quite often the damage is exactly that kind of tissue damage -- due to toxins, poisons or infections that damage tissue.

In those cases, Vitamin E and other water-based and oil-based anti-oxidants will help your liver. Not only does your liver get these nutrients and protective ingredients in the blood supply, but the liver is the first organ that the blood from your intestines go to. So the liver gets bathed with nutrients and anti-oxidants first, when you eat medicinal foods.

For that reason, the liver responds very well to nutritional healing, including healing tissue damage with anti-oxidants and other protective molecules.

Other protective, liver-healing medicines that have been studied are Silymarin (extract of Milk Thistle) and SAM-e.

Vitamin E Helps Treat Common Liver Disease
Effective in almost half of common liver diseases
By Ed Edelson, HealthDay Reporter
[link to health.usnews.com]
WEDNESDAY, April 28 (HealthDay News) -- A new study has identified vitamin E as a treatment that can provide relief for many of the estimated 10 million Americans who have the most common chronic liver disease.

"This clearly shows that vitamin E is effective for treatment of patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis who don't have active diabetes," said study author Dr. Arun J. Sanyal, chairman of the division of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition at Virginia Commonwealth University. A report on the trial is published in the April 28 online edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.

People should know that it's important to not take high doses of Vitamin E.

Vitamin E is oil soluble and you can't exceed the Recommended Daily Allowance by much. People start developing problems when they take Vitamin E daily @ 400 I.U.

I think Vitamin D is the only oil soluble vitamin where you can take doses much larger than the USRDA without getting sick.

I have read that Milk Thistle is recommended for Bodybuilders to use while they are taking steroids. It is widely reported that it helps protect the liver during steroid cycles.

If it can help protect the liver during that stressful chemical intrusion it makes sense that it may help during other times also.

Turmeric is even better.

[link to www.emaxhealth.com]

Scientists have found that the Indian spice turmeric delayed the progression of liver disease associated with autoimmune disease known as primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and primary biliary cirrhosis. Turmeric, known for its anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties, stopped liver damage in mice that ultimately leads to cirrhosis.

Researchers say that turmeric is a natural product that could be useful for treating a variety of inflammatory diseases because it blocks chemical pathways involved in inflammation.

PSC affects approximately 6 per 100,000 individuals and primarily men. The average age of onset is 40. The liver disease often occurs in association with Crohn’s disease. PSC is a rapidly progressing disease. Primary biliary cirrhosis is also thought to be the result of autoimmune dysfunction that slowly destroys the bile ducts in the liver that carry digestive fluids that rid the body of cholesterol and toxins and can lead to scarring and cirrhosis of the liver. Both diseases can be fatal.

Turmeric, added to the diet of mice, was found to significantly reduce liver scarring and damage in mice fed turmeric for four to eight weeks, and was compared to a group not given turmeric in the diet.

Inflammatory liver disease can progress and be fatal. Current treatment of primary biliary cirrhosis includes the use of ursodeoxycholic acid, but the long term effects remain controversial. Liver transplant is the only other alternative. Turmeric could be a promising treatment for autoimmune liver diseases that are difficult to treat and can be fatal. The Indian spice has been studied for its beneficial role in reducing inflammation that leads to a variety of diseases.

absolutely. cayenne pepper is another that cleans the blood and gets it flowing. the greater the flow, the faster toxins can be dealt with.

i have never been comfortable with vitamin supplementation. i try to get them through natural means. 20 minutes in the sun with mostly full body will produce 20-40,000 IU of vitamin D on the skin. be sure to leave it on the skin long enough to absorb. eat as raw and organic and local as you can. avoid all processed foods.

minerals are an exception. the diet is bereft of nutrition that all americans are deficient in something. the most common ones are iodine, selenium, magnesium, boron and yttrium. toxic amounts of fluorine, bromine, mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, titanium and aluminum are present in most people. a series of progressively longer juice fasts will eventually cleanse the body. simple avoidance and supplementation will produce much slower results.

there are problems with vit E supplementation. do your homework.

One thing that bothered me about Cheerios is it has E in it but they don't have it on the Vit stats list. Why?

Re: Study: Vitamin E heals your liver in almost half of liver diseases
remember to take vitamin E with a little bit of fat, as it is fat-soluble and needs the fat to assimilate.. it doesn't have to be much fat, a glass of whole milk can be enough

milk thistle is also good for the liver... milk thistle contains silymarin, and in European countries, such as Germany, silymarin is injected intravenously to counteract nightshade poisoning... (nightshade, as well as most severe toxins, kills by destroying the liver)
Water always wins. :sun:
