Hepatitis C and Dietary Supplements

Hepatitis C and Dietary Supplements
Most consumers assume that herbs and botanical products in dietary supplements are safe, however they are not regulated by the FDA, in addition these products can interact with prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, and other dietary supplements.

As an example milk thistle is the most commonly used herbal supplement in the United States for liver problems, including viral hepatitis. If you are interested in learning more about the science behind milk thistle, probiotics, zinc, or other commonly used supplements, check out the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) website, in particular the following publication: Hepatitis C and Dietary Supplements, updated this month.
