Treat your liver to some vitamin E

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is a fancy way of saying liver disease that it is not caused by alcohol. Its shows up as fatty liver, inflammation and liver damage. It is also a "silent" disease, that is people don't notice it, nor is it picked up as they are not drinkers (someone who drinks a lot would be suspected of liver damage). 

The New England Journal of Medicine has just published a study that looked at treatment of Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.Currently there is no established method of treating this disease. They tried 800 IU of vitamin E, pioglitazone and of course a placebo. Pioglitazone is a drug that is used to help treat type-2 diabetes and is thought to be possibly helpful for  Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Results vitamin E did better than placebo and pioglitazone was the same as placebo for primary effects of Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.  

Furthermore vitamin E group didn't gain weight like the pioglitazone group (weight gain is often a side effect of medications).

So do your liver a treat and take 800 IU of vitamin E

P.S. this improvement was seen after two years of taking each product, so vitamin E works slowly to improve your liver. Vitamins rarely produce a positive impact in the short time. However long term they can work miracles.
