Ayurvedic Alternate to Liv-52?

Sometimes I take Liv-52 tablets for appetite. It is a ayurvedic medicine no? Do it have any side effects?

I just checked- had a bottle at home. I use it for my doggy- sorry? and for myself sometimes also. It says Ayurvedic proprietary medicine- like Vicks. And I guess because it is herbal there will be no side effects also. Hope this helps.

LIV 52 has ingredients which increase the working capability of the Liver. So whenever you r having complaints right from indigestion to liver diseases it works wonders. We can label the medicine as a tonic purpose and its like removing the rust to expose the shining metal......... For Animals and Pets the dosage, content is different although you can use human preparations for animals but not vice versa.... for humans, LIV 52 comes in 2 doses...LIV 52 and LIV 52 DS (Double Strength) It is an appetizer --- so no problem but do not overdose......

A relative of mine is diagnosed to have severe tubulo- interstitial disease with granulomatous inflammation with current creatine level 3.1 and high blood pressure. Will Ayurvedic Live 52 be helpful in such a condition? Any other tried and tested recommendations will be appreciated too. Thanks!
