In patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, there’s a risk of fibrosis and cirrhosis if we don’t solve the problem. Some patients already have a degree of fibrosis and a diagnosed non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. When this happens, vitamin C can be an unsuspected ally for them.
This common vitamin can be taken in a dose of 1000 mg, and studies show it protects the liver from damage. It may even reduce the degree of fibrosis in patients. However, you need to take the supplement for 6 months because it is the timeframe studied in clinical trials. It is also recommended to take vitamin C along with vitamin E in a dose of 1000 IU.
