Dr. Do you think this supplement would be of benifit to my liver. N-acetyl cysteine has been cited as a good antioxidant. I have a history of high liver counts and I wonder if this coule help me. Thanks

Always let your physician know what you are taking however, in case there are any drug interactions with your current medications. Dr. McGovern
