The liver is an incredibly complex organ that performs approximately 1500 different essential biochemical functions. Among its many tasks, the liver is involved in the metabolism and digestion of protein, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins, as well as metabolism of drugs and production of important substances involved in blood clotting. It has an incredible capacity for regeneration and repair, but like any organ can develop disease and potentially failure.
Acute and chronic liver diseases, exposure to toxins such as paracetamol and use of certain drugs including corticosteroids can result in oxidative stress to the cells of the liver (hepatocytes). Supplementation with SAMe, a precursor to the powerful antioxidant Glutathione, can help to reduce oxidative stress caused to hepatocytes, which may help to protect and maintain healthy liver function. Many veterinarians recommend the use of SAMe as an adjunctive treatment for conditions including: chronic hepatitis, hepatic lipidosis, cholangiohepatitis and neoplasia.
