United States' Top 25 Nutritional Supplements

6. Liver

IRI recorded a 42.7 percent increase in dollar sales of liver supplements. Christianson says that liver extracts are “a decent source of iron and B vitamins that may have some use as an adjunctive treatment for iron deficiency anemia.” In the Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, Murray and Pizzorno cite one study whose hepatitic subjects saw a reduction in liver enzyme levels following liver extract supplementation. This decrease in enzyme levels, Murray and Pizzorno say, suggest that liver extract is “effective in treating chronic hepatitis.” Similarly, The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (Therapeutic Research Faculty, 2003) notes liver extract’s ability to “stimulate liver cell proliferation in experimental animals after partial hepatectomy.” Michael DiPalma, N.D., in Nature’s Medicine (Rodale, 1999) advocates liver extract supplementation for anemics, saying that it contains “all the things that your body needs to rebuild blood.”
