Liv 52 Side Effects


I would like to give a review of liv 52 and it's side effects. Iiv 52 is a product from himalaya. It was one of the best and most famous ayurvedic liver supplement in india. Liv 52 was relased by himalaya in 1955. From 1955 onwards it was a dominant product in the market. It is one among few products from ayurvedic that is recommended even by  allopathy doctors. Liv 52 tablets and syrup are available in the market. It used for liver related problems like viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, pre-cirrhotic conditions and early cirrhosis, radiation and chemotherapy-induced liver damage. It contains himsra, kasani, mandur bhasma, kakamachi, arjuna, kasamarda, but in the syrup form kamamachi is not there. Other than that all the contents in syrup and tablets are the same. Company says that they sold around 1 billion tablets and 13 million syrup bottles every year across the globe!!!.




i would like to give my experience with this product. When i had jaundice for the first time, one allopathy doctor prescribed me to take liv 52 and he has given some other tablets too. I used to take liv 52 in the morning time and in the evening time. He prescribed me some diet also but i consulted a ayurvedic doctor and he given some other ayurvedic medicines and my jaundice cured within 2 weeks. After that i didnt take liv 52 and other medicines that is given by my allopathy doctor  but after 3 months i had jaundice again. On the 2nd time, my bilirubin level was also really high and i consulted another allopathy doctor and he also prescribed me liv 52 and some other medicine. In the same time i consulted that aurvadic doctor (i consulted the ayurvedic doctor again is because i know with his medicine there will be a sudden decrees in the bilirubin level)  with the permission of my allopathy doctor and i had the medicine he given to me when i had jaundice for the first time. My jaundice got cured within one month but i still followed my allopathy doctors diet and i took liv 52 for around 6 months. Thanks to god after that i never had jaundice.

Liv 52 Side Effects

Most of the ayurvedic products in the market now a days are not 100 % ayurvedic. There are lots of chemicals added in most of the ayurvedic products to get better results. But this kind of chemicals may give better results but at the same time it may give some side effects also. It is really hard to find out a 100 % ayurvedic product. Liv 52 is a product that contains only ayurvedic materials. There is no side effect as of now for this ayurvedic product. When i asked my doctor about liv 52(he is in his 60's)  he told me that while he was doing his MBBS, at that time also doctors used to prescribe liv 52 for liver related problems and he told me that as of now, no one has found any side effect by this product. But higher dosage of this product may be harmful. So please don't use this product without consulting your physician.

  8. My mother who is 84 years of age has been diagnosed of having dilated of both Hepatic and Common Bile Ducts.2 Stents were placed at the distal end of the common bile duct to facilitate flow of bile and she is free of jaundice,but has loss of appetite, and weight loss.Her Liver enzymes ASOT and SGPT shows a marked increase (over 200)and no billirubin in the blood and urine.She also has hypertension and LVH (Left ventricular Hypertrophy- Enlarged Left Ventricle)for which she takes western medicine.Can this patient be given Live 52 one tablet twice a day to strengthen her liver and bile ducts ? If any qualified Aurvedic or allopathy doctor spots this query,please comment on this.Thanks

    1. Yes, you can and should start Liv.52 DS or 1 BD without delay. Liv.52 is protective and slow acting and will at least take2 months for any visible improvements in SGOT and SGPT numbers, but have LFT done every month till numbers are in control.. Do not worry about LVH, that is just a response for the HTN she has. But if possible have a 2D Echo done. Check her Blood Sugar fasting and PP as well as HbA1c and take action as she also had weight loss.

    2. This is not a dietary supplement. Dosage depends upon your overall health parameters. If absolutely fine, you may not need any medicine else you can take OD for max 1 month for prophylactic use.

  10. If a person is an alcoholic and has been told by doctors that "your liver is shot", and the person is not able to give up alcohol because she gets the shakes, would this product still be helpful? She says she wakes up in the morning with the shakes and has to drink some vodka just to get started for the day! I have given her other supplements and it is hard for her body to keep it down. She says if I can get supplements in liquid form, it may help with that? She is vegan and one of the supplements is the dessicated beef liver! It is hard to believe that someone is a vegan which implies they care about what they put into their bodies, yet killing themselves with vodka! Maybe she is vegan because she cares about animals (as opposed to herself)?

  11. I was told I am hepatitis B(HBsAg)positive. Can I use Liv 52. if yes, can I use it alone or alongside other drugs. Which other drugs should I use. I went to the Department of Family medicine in one of the Teaching hospitals but they do not have any liver expert. Please advise

    ReplyDelete
  12. Himalayan's other product, PartySmart, is also really good...it actually prevents hangovers and its all natural and safe (on their website they said it was made unintentionally while researching further on liver protection)

  13. Is Liv52 useful to treat Asian flush? Asian flush is caused when there is a lack of enzymes required by the liver to metabolize alcohol

  18. I would like to share my experience with Liv 52. I started taking this Ayurvedic medicine for some different reason. I had anal fissure for 6 long years. My fissure was started with constipation/ hard stool. I used to take Liv 52 to keep it (i.e. stool) soft. I had taken it without any recommendation of any doctor however it works well on me. I had taken it for 4 long years. The side effects i experienced is coldness and fever if taken for longer at a starch (3-4 month). Another distinct side effect is sleep disorder, specifically breaking of sleep at around 4 AM in the morning and not able to sleep afterwards. I searched the constituents of Liv 52 and found it has "haritoki (Terminalia chebula), I also found this "hartaki" is responsible for the marked medicinal property on digestive system and also the side effects. I came in to this conclusion after i experimenting its effects on my own body. Right now i am suffering from sleep disorder and searching for a remedy. One thing i would also like to mention that i had to undergone surgical procedure to treat my anal fissure as i had to stop taking Liv 52 for its side effects.

    1. Bull shit...you wud want to chk again the nonsense you wrote about Haritaki and sleep related problem. Don't spread hatred towards ayurveda and its life saving medicines to

      Delete
    2. Haritaki will not cause sleep disorder. Please check your stress level and try to relax and enjoy more to cure slep disorder problem. Liv.52 may not be the right medicine for fissure, there are other medicines, please consult. Also do not take any medicines for so long without consulting a professional. Liv.52 is extremely safe medicine but has to be for the right cause.

  19. Hi everyone I am 26 yrs male and I had chest pain during my working hrs at night and immediately went to the hospital. After taking the ECG test which was normal the doctor prescribed some medicines which included Liv.52. Now I am suffering from gas related problems in my stomach. Is it because of the medicine I took for the chest pain and is this medicine advisable for chest pain? Can anyone answer my query please?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Use Gasahar Churna for 5 days after lunch and dinner and your gas trouble should go. Get 2 D Echo done just to eliminate any real heart problem, ECG may not be enough. Chest pain may just be due to hyperacidity or could be muscle pull also. Check if the pain is there by slightly pressing the area. Also have your Lipid Levels and serum Homocysteine checked.

  20. Himalaya Liv 52 is used for the prevention and treatment of viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, pre-cirrhotic conditions and early cirrhosis, anorexia, loss of appetite and liver damage due to radiation therapy.

    1. What tests were done to conclude liver cirrhosis? Please consult some very senior Gastroenterologist without delay.

      And in your case of fatty lever - do you have sedentary life style ... best solution is regular physical exercise. Moreover there are good medicines with Patanjali (Ramdev) Ayurveda which can briong down fattly liver in few months... but exercise is mandatory.

  23. can liv 52 be taken without doctors prescription ??

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes, it is a non-prescription drug. But it can sometimes lead to stomach upset or dyspepsia, particularly if taken in night. So go for low doses and no later than 2 PM. Moreover if your stomach is too sensitive, prefer you can consult one of the Doctors. Nowadays Patanjali Ramdev Docs have free clinics in all cities for example.

  31. My 4 year old girl was not eating food properly and was losing weight. So reading these online forums we tried Liv 52. I would crush 1 tablet and mix it with her Boost. We started seeing the change within 1 week. Her appetite and energy increased and she is much better and healthier now... My question is she's been taking her 1 tablet a day for about 2.5 months now. Should I stop or continue? Any homeopathic, naturopathic experienced people in the forum, please advise...
