Ayurveda/Liv 52


QUESTION: Dear Dr. Dehal,

I am wondering what the difference is between Liv52 and Livercare (both produced by the Himalaya company)?

One concern I have is that Liv52 tablets have parabens, which are a controversial preservative. What is your view on this?

I was also wondering if it is possible, or recommended, to take milk thistle tablets (also for the liver) concurrently with Liv52?

Thank you in advance for your help, Dr. Dehal, and with all my best wishes.


ANSWER: In India only Liv52 is available and Livercare is only available in other countries.Probably in Livercare some metallic ingredients has been removed.
Sorry i don't know about parabens. So can not comment upon.
Yes milk thistle can be taken along with Liv 52 both are having same function. Its better to take only one thing at a time.

QUESTION: Thank you, Dr. Dehal. When you say only one thing at a time, you mean that Liv 52 and Milk Thistle can be taken on the same day, but simply not together? (an hour apart, for example?)
And they won't interfere with each other if they have the same function?
Thanks again for your help!
All best wishes,

Yes they have same function and even do not interfere with each other. But my point is there is no need of both together in same day even. Means when both of them have same function then whats the fun to have both of them. Means you should take only one.
