    Which liver support supplement?


    Which liver support have you used particulary after or on cycle? I've used milk thistle and I am giving liv 52 a shot now. Heard some good things about NAC and Ababolic ls Xtreme have a support called perfect cycle (NAC and milk thistle) then there's also liver longer. What's your opinion on absorption and effectivness both on and off cycle?

    Products such as Cycle Support contain milk thistle and a lot more. Hawthorne berry for BP and other ingredients.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

    Cycle Support is far more comprehensive and is an all-in-one support supplement.

    Though I've never used a toxic supplement, I take Perfect Cycle every day. There are so many toxins in what we eat, drink, breath, ect... Better safe than sorry. It also contains:


    R-ALA (R[+]-Alpha Lipoic Acid 200 MG)R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid, a strong liver protectant, has been used successfully for the maintenance of liver health and as a treatment for several toxin-related illnesses. Alpha-Lipoic Acid has been used extensively in Europe for years as a non-toxic nutrient to treat various chemical overdoses such as mushroom poisoning, radiation poisoning and alcoholic hepatitis.

    Another benefit of Alpha-Lipoic Acid may be its ability to elevate the levels of glutathione (GSH). Studies show that low levels of glutathione may cause oxidative stress, and cause inflammation and damage organs. Glutathione latches on to toxins and makes them water-soluble enough to be flushed out through your kidneys. The quickest way to rid the liver of toxins is to stimulate glutathione production.


    Alhough, Cycle Support does contain more ingredients and looks to be a very solid product. Either way you go you can't go wrong.

    I always felt milk thistle alone wasn't as good as some make it seem. Liv 52 got good reviews so thought I'd give it a shot. Haven't heard much on liver longer.

    For cycle purposes milk thistle is not enough IMO. If you already have the Liv 52 get some hawthorne berry and use that also.

    Now liver detox and regenerator is well priced and has everything you need l also use Resveritrol, NAC and Na-Rala for a good protection.

    Liv 52 is an excellent product but it's certainly not enough on its own for a cycle.

    Adding in NAC and ALA would be the bare additions in my eyes to complement it, although an all-in-one product such as Cycle Support would be far superior.

    Probably better! More seriously, it depends on the standardization and the amount you use. Have you tried milk thistle extract standardized to the flavonolignan silymarin, and active flavonolignan isomers such as silibinin, and isosilybin B in the same formula? Have you dosed such a formula at, say, 1gr twice daily for a month?

    A lot of peope with acne say that milk thistle clears them up for two weeks, before they become used to it. I wonder if the health affects are the same.

    NAC is good for acetaminophen overdoses and the likes...but not really good for any PH cycles.

    I personally like Milk Thistle and SAMe....

    I use cycle support and I'm not even on a cycle. I find it to be very useful for general liver and organ function health !

    Cycle Support, Reverse, GUT Health, and Animal Pak are, and should be staples.

    I used to pop pills when I was younger (very stupid) and drink a lot, I know I F'd up my liver as I finally stopped because every time I would get messed up my liver would hurt, really freakin bad. That is when I really started getting into health stuff and getting my body into shape. By itself I noticed the biggest difference from Milk Thistle by itself with 80% silymarin standardized. I ended up taking Milk Thistle, SAMe, NAC, and alpha lipoic acid. The NAC and ALA compliment each other nicely. Also I read somewhere that high doses of Vit C+Vit B-complex has been used to successfully treat Jaundice and other liver related illnesses so I eventually used high doses of C+B aswell. I can now drink every now and then and have no pain, had my liver enzymes checked and im good to go.
