    Liver protection/milk thistle: essential or counter-productive?
    I've heard both sides of the story. That you need to protect your liver while using an oral by using liver protection like milk thistle... but also the other side, that liver protection supplements will limit the effectiveness of the oral you're using. So which is it? Does anyone have any references they can use to back up their claims?

    Thanks

    herbal supplements like liv.52 or milk thistle help improve liver function. they dont nescesirily "protect" your liver as most ppl think...like sun screen proctects u from uv rays. so they are important to take on and off cycle to keep the bad effects of aas on ur liver function away. the most damaging are orals which is why ppl use them here the most.

    there are many studies out there do a search. most of the studies done are on ppl with liver diseases

    I take UDCA (ursodeoxycholic acid) it's the best liver protection out there and it lowers cholesterol. Great product to use while on cycle.

    Agreed!
    UDCA (ursodeoxycholic acid) blows milk thistle out of the water.
    I am not even sure if milkthisle does much.
    UDCA has info on it at least.

    RUI has the stuff, that's where I first found out about it and did some research and can't believe I didn't know about it sooner!
