Can Taurine treat Fatty Liver?

A recent research done by scientists from the University of London’s School of Pharmacy, claim that Taurine could undo the liver damage done by alcoholism.

What is Taurine?

Taurine is a core ingredient in the bile and helps digesting fats and absorb vitamins that are capable of  fat dissolvent. It is an essential acid that our body manufactures naturally.

It is usually sold as a dietary supplement in a form of capsules and can be purchased online or from your local pharmacy.

About the research

The researchers gave rats excessive amounts of alcohol, and for some of them a small amount of Taurine for one single month.

They found that it prevented fat build-up around the liver, and more unexpectedly, Taurine reversed the liver damaged caused by alcohol.

Additional research done by scientists in Ireland, found that Taurine has similar effect in children with fatty liver disease due to obesity (Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver or NAFLD).

It’s worth looking at if you’re looking for natural ways to help with fatty liver treatment.

In addition, if you’re serious about natural treatment for fatty liver, I highly recommend the fatty liver diet guide written by Dorothy Spencer BSN, RN It helped a lot of my patients.

    I agree with Rich. Everything I have seen says to lose weight, but no super crash diets. Also, don’t go on an extremely low fat diet – that can make matters worse.

    Fast weight loss is not the answer. It can actually make the problem worse.
    Surprised the doctor didn’t tell you that.

    Hello,

    I was wanting to ask if anyone out there would have a diet plan to lose weight fast. My daughter has NAFLD she is 15yrs old and the doctors are telling me this could be life threatening for her and that they want her to lose at least 50 lbs fast. We have started a new life style here with are eating habits and exercising now daily . Im looking for ideas on foods to keep her from getting so bored with the same ole thing.

    Any information you have with be helpful. Thank you for your time and ideas!

    Sondra
