How often should you cleanse your liver?
« on: July 12, 2011, 03:53:56 PM »
it's been a while since i've used any type of "Liver Support" products. not that i take anything "harsh", but how often should you cleanse your liver just for regular maintenance?

Everyday homes. A gallon of water+ a day and some milk thistle never hurt anyone.

People run anywhere from 400 mgs to a 1 g a day.

500-750 mgs seems suffice.

I think some daily liver cleansing is a great idea, just don't over do it, or you'll regret it. 

I know because I did it, and it's an awful experience. 

It's actually possible to make your liver vomit, by attempting to detoxify too quickly, and I promise it's absolutely horrible. 

After emergency surgery in 2004, (and being given an unbelievable number of drugs during my month in the hospital), about 3 months later, I thought I should do a liver cleanse.

Well, I took far too much, and after the herbs in the capsules had a chance to get into my system, I wound up barely able to get to the bathroom in time to throw up most of the bile in my liver.  This was about 10 times worse than regular vomiting.

I certainly detoxified, (there probably weren't many toxins left after that), but I really wish I had done it slower.

It was, I was so weak, immediately afterward, I could barely crawl back to bed.

Keep that in the back of your mind, whenever someone is talking about detoxification.

Detoxification is a smart thing to do, but a person has to be smart, about how they do it.

My mom was taking a MX Liver Detox capsule once a day. It's a supplement that helps to clear out all of the debris in the liver and ensuring that toxins are leaving the body and not harming/damaging the liver or in short term "cleansing/detoxing the liver".

Water and milk thistle is great for just liver maintenance. Sounds like these complexly formulated liver cleansers can really get your liver to chuck up some nasty stuff of the quick.

when you say that, you are talking about the Silybin Phytosome or marianum mg level? cos most tablets you see have it so you take 3 per day which is roughly 300-700mg of Silybin Phytosome or marianum.... seems a bit much at times tbh
the one i take has 210mg per tablet and they recommend 2 of them a day.... would more than that create a laxative effect and have far more side effects?
