Simple Nutrient Stops Liver Disease in Its Tracks

Liver diseases are one of the fastest-growing health epidemics in the world.

According to a brand-new study, today up to 50% of Americans suffer from nonalcoholic liver disease (NAFLD) – including children as young as 2.1

Our modern food supply is to blame for this epidemic. As you know, our food supply is drenched in Big Agra’s high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

It’s a big part of the reason we have an obeSity epidemic in our country.

Obesity contributes to 52% of liver disease. And if you’re obese, you’re 400% more likely to develop liver damage.2

But HFCS does more than make you gain weight… It causes fat to build up in your liver.

Unlike other sugars, it goes straight to your liver. It doesn’t go into your muscles and tissues for energy. It promotes the formation of new fat molecules. It triggers your liver cells to store this fat where it doesn’t belong.

A study from the University of Florida found patients with fatty liver disease ate two to three times more high fructose corn syrup.3 And just like alcohol, this cheap fructose is addictive. Once you start eating it, you crave even more sweets.

Corn syrup floods your bloodstream, overwhelming your liver’s processing capacity. Your liver becomes inflamed and develops into NAFLD.

But it gets worse…

NAFLD can progress to an even more deadly form known as nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Up to 30% of Patients develop NASH. And they are more likely to die from liver disease. NASH can progress to hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer, or liver failure.

Mainstream medicine has no effective drug or treatment for this condition. But a new study shows that a simple nutrient can stop fatty liver disease in its tracks.

DHA Stops Fatty Liver Disease In Its Tracks

Researchers from Oregon State University fed lab animals the equivalent of a standard Western diet. That’s a diet high in bad fats and sugars that leads to obesity. The fat animals developed NASH. Then they weRe given the omega-3 fatty acid, DHA.

They found that DHA blocked the progression of NASH even though the animals continued to eat a Western diet.

And in a human study, volunteers taking 1,000 mg per day of omega-3s decreased serum markers of liver cell damage and levels of triglyceride fats.4

You see, DHA is anti-inflammatory. It helps to heal liver cell membranes. DHA also suppresses the production of new liver fat cells and stImulates the burning of fat cells.

You can get DHA from grass-fed meats and wild-caught fish. But after years of tracking my patients’ omega-3 levels, I know it is almost impossible to get enough DHA from your diet. You have to supplement.

But not with fish oil.

You see, fish oil on the market today comes from contaminated waters. It’s loaded with toxins. And that adds to the burden on your liver.

Fortunately, there’s a better choice. I recommend squid and krill oil to my patients. It’s purer than fish oil.

I advise my patients to take between 600 mg and 1,000 of DHA daily from a combiNation of squid oil and krill oil.

2 More Ways To Protect Your Liver

I also recommend two more powerful supplements for liver health.

1. Tocotrienols

This form of vitamin E has been proven to completely reverse NAFLD. In one study, 50% of end-stage liver patients – those who never get better without a transplant – improved their condition by taking tocotrienols.5 In another study from Malaysia, 67% of “non-treatable” NAFLD cases improved after supplementing.

You can add tocotrienols to your diet naturally. Try eating plenty of nuts, eggs, and dark-green leafy vegetables. Other excellent sources are annatto oil, palm oil, and coconut oil. But most don’t Get enough from their diet. Look for a vitamin E supplement with “mixed tocotrienols.” Try to get at least 400 IU a day.

2. CoQ10

A study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition proved that CoQ10 can also treat NAFLD.6 The trial included 41 people with mild to moderate NAFLD. Researchers gave half the patients 100 mg of CoQ10 every day. The other half got a placebo. After 12 weeks, all signs of NAFLD were lower in the CoQ10 group. Four of the patients on CoQ10 even returned to normal liver function.

You can get CoQ10 from grass-fed organ meat and beef, game, and wild-caught fatty fish. But again, it’s hard to get all you need from diet alone. Normally, I recommend 50 mg daily. But to treat NAFLD, I suggest taking 100 to 300 mg per day of the ubiquinol form of CoQ10. Divide it into two doses.
