Liver Stabil is a liver support supplement. It contains more than a dozen natural ingredients designed to help protect and detoxify the liver, and may be specifically useful during exposure to hepatotoxic substances such as oral anabolic/androgenic steroids. At the foundation of this formula are several clinically studied ingredients similar to those found inLiv-52 and Essentiale forte. For example, cichorium intybus, which was originally an old Turkish folk medicine, has been the subject of modern studies showing it can protect the liver from toxic substance damage. It has specifically been shown to lower liver enzymes (aspartate amino-transferase and alanine amino-transferase) and bilirubin levels after toxic exposure. Arjuna is also used, and again has been shown to lower liver enzyme levels and stress markers following hepatotoxic substance administration. Yarrow (achillea millefolium) was also included, and may help reduce hepatic inflammation and regulate bile secretion. Phosphatidylcholine (a key constituent of cellular membranes including liver cells) and a combination of key vitamins round out theLiv-52/Essential forte-like base of the Liver Stabil formula. Lipid Stapil expands on its foundation with four additional well-studied liver health ingredients.The most prevalent of these are N-acetyl cysteine and L-glutathione. Both nutrients are important to maintaining ongoing liver health, and may be especially useful in countering hepatic glutathione depletion, an effect common with oral AAS toxicity. Next, milk thistle extract standardized for silymarin content is included. Silymarin contains several key flavonolignans that protect and detoxify the liver. In fact, this natural remedy is one of the most extensively studied and proven liver detoxification supplements, and in some regions is widely prescribed by physicians to treat numerous liver diseases including alcohol cirrhosis. An extensive review of more than a dozen placebo-controlled studies with the use of silymarin on patients with cirrhosis have shown it to consistently reduce aspartate aminotransferase levels and even liver-related mortality. Regardless of the chosen liver support regimen, milk thistle should be included. Lastly, wasabi japonica is a rich source of 6- methylsulfinylhexyl isothiocyanate (6-HITC). The nutrient 6-HITC is an inhibitor of glutathione S-transferase, an enzyme that breaks down hepatic glutathione.

Liver Stabil History
Liver Stabil was developed in 2008 by Molecular Nutrition (United States). The focus was specifically on designing a supplement that can help support liver health in users of hepatotoxic substances such as oral anabolic/androgenic steroids. The formula was intended to target several key areas of steroid-induced liver toxicity including general liver strain and hepatic enzyme elevations, glutathione depletion, inflammation, and bile secretion and transport. Liver Stabil can be found through international distribution, most notably in Canada, Australia, and certain parts of Europe. Note that in some regions with strict controls over nutritional supplements Liver Stabil may be considered a natural drug product, and may be subject to certain rules and regulations concerning its importation and sale.
How is Liver Stabil Supplied
Liver Stabil is supplied in capsules containing a blend of N-acetyl cysteine, milk thistle extract, wild chicory (cichorium intybus), L-glutathione, wasabi japonica, arjuna (terminalia arjuna), phosphatidylcholine, yarrow (achillea millefolium), vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin E, and niacin.
Liver Stabil Side Effects
Liver Stabil is a natural dietary supplement and is not expected to have notable side effects.
Liver Stabil Administration
For general liver support or as an adjunct to hepatotoxic pharmaceuticals, Liver Stabil is taken at a dosage of 3 capsules per day. A dosage of up to 6 capsules per day may be taken during periods of heightened hepatic strain. Note that a natural product such as Liver Stabil may help reduce the level of liver toxicity, but cannot be relied upon to completely eliminate potential damage from the abuse of hepatotoxic drugs. Care should always be taken to monitor liver health when taking liver toxic substances.
Liver Stabil Availability
Liver Stabil is produced in the U.S. by Molecular Nutrition. It is available for export, and may be found in Canada, Europe, Australia, and some other international markets.
