Lot of great advise below! A guy at my gym asked my trainer the same thing a few weeks ago. My trainer's advise was...eat greens.

I would run all those supplements by your doctor....if your enzymes are off, I don't know of any supplement that's proven to help correct it.

Your body is good at cleansing itself---just feed it well, give it some exercise, and see your doc regularly, if need be. Stopping the drinking is probably the best idea of all!

This site, our experts, and our members are not able to anser your question---for it could be dangerous for your health.

You need to have the tests run by your doctor, to determine your liver function...and then the correct diet (from a Registered Dietitian) can be prescribed based on your needs.

I also encourage you "not" to use the supplements you listed in your post, until you talk to your doctor!!

There are many foods which will help too. Things like broccoli, kale, dandelion greens, etc. Just do an internet search on foods that help the liver and you should find info on it. The good thing is Fatty Liver is reversible. .

After swearing off booze this past Christmas, I'm interested in cleansing my liver. My enzymes have been high for a few years. I'm getting that checked out. In the meantime, I've gotten proactive - found supplements, CoQ10, Vit. B12, Milk Thistle (but that one I'll be stopping, it's questionable.) I wasn't a regular drinker so much as a frequent one, more so than just a social one. Vodka was my drink for a good few years, then I pretty much switched to wine. I can stop though. I'm doing it. Wish me luck.
