Liv 52 is a ayurvedic preparation. It is supposed to be a liver tonic as per their literature. There is no prospective randomized trial ever performed to confirm the virucidal effect if any. So just treat it as a liver tonic only.

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
no medicine is there to eradicate virus from liver,
only body immunity can do it.
trial may be done locally but all are for company benefit.
so dont jump into it
wait for some time to get it approved.
