Has anyone ever tried gnc liver support or can you tell me if these ingredients are acceptable?

A superior blend of standardized herbs including Milk Thistle, Goldenseal, Red Clover and Artichoke.

Thanks

Is this it?

GNC Herbal Plus Standardized Liver Support

=========

If so, it looks like a very good formula, indeed. I assume a company of their stature knows who grows these and they are standardized so you know exactly what you are getting.

Be sure to take it away from probiotics. The Goldenseal has some excellent antimicrobial properties and will negate effects of probiotics. Take about 3 hours away.

Yep Keebler you hit it right on the head. Now I am not posititive as to the efficacy but maybe it's worth a shot. They do also have just plain old milk thistle if that would be better?

I like this combination. It think a formula is usually best. Normally, I don't see Goldenseal added but it's a very good herb - I'm just more familiar with it for other reasons. But, I see by looking around a bit that it does have a history of use for liver support.

Start with just ONE a day until you see how you do. The Goldenseal can cause a bit of stomach upset at first. I would take it with a meal. Goldenseal can cause a bit of die off if you have systemic yeast/candida.

Goldenseal's Future - by Steven Foster 2009

Excerpt:

. . . The Iroquois used a decoction of the root for whooping cough, diarrhea, liver disease, fever, sour stomach, flatulence, pneumonia, and, with whiskey, for heart trouble. . . .

==================

PubMed Search:

Goldenseal - 108 abstracts

Goldenseal, liver - 8 abstracts

=====================

www.itmonline.org is also a good place to learn.

Excellent I'll give it a try. If it kills off the yeasties thats an added bonus.

Now I just need to convince myself to get some gse for a cyst buster. I am half afraid to because of the herx but my LLMD doesn't have me on anything for the cysts.

Is a cyst buster the same as a biofilm buster?
