Interesting study which found benefits in using GSE alongside UDCA to prevent and manage liver cirrhosis. UDCA/TUDCA and GSE are two sups I respond well to, although haven't used them together.

Anyone have any experience of using GSE? I believe its potentially pro-estrogen.

This is pretty mind blowing!

The liver is the strongest regenerating organ of the organism, and even with 2/3 surgically removed, it can regenerate completely.

(I don't mean to prod and correct Mr Helen sir but it's grape seed extract, not grapefruit. I'm sorry. I'll go home.)

Lol, you are right. I though it was grapefruit.

I guess GSE acts as antioxidant,

TUDCA is basically just UDCA with a taurine molecule attached. I personally find TUDCA is better, but both are good! For me they reduce/eliminate pain in the liver area and make me sweat again, I think just basically improve liver function!

Grape seed extract also has benefits for the liver, especially against fatty liver;

4) Protects the Liver
In 15 patients with fatty liver, grape seed extract dropped liver enzymes and reversed fat buildup. It showed better results than vitamin C. But such a small sample prevents us from drawing firm conclusions from this study [70].

Thanks to its strong antioxidant action, grape seed extract shielded the liver of lab animals from impairment caused by:

  • Bile duct obstruction [71, 72]
  • Heavy metals [73, 74]
  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol) [9]
  • Cut blood supply [75]
  • Chemicals [76]
In mice, it outperformed vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene in protecting the brain and liver against oxidative stress [62].

i tried tudca (nutricost brand) and experienced zero benefit. took between 1.25-2 grams/day for a month. i also tried various bile acid combination formulas. nothing. this was before doing liver & gallbladder cleanses. you need to physically remove the obstructon in the bile ducts and gablladder for the bile to flow freely to enable calorie and nutrient absoprtion and detoxification of the body, includnig balancing hormones. the colon is obviously just as important but the prep for the liver flushes unblocks any colon blockage.

you dont need any supplements. you need to service your machine. change the oil. then maintain it by providing it with quality fuel and regular maintenance service.
