Every medicine, vitamin, supplement that you take passes through the liver, including all the medicines you take:

  • Vitamins
  • Dietary supplements
  • Alternative medicines

Your liver is responsible for processing all of these substances. It is important to understand exactly how you should be taking your medications in order to avoid putting undue stress on your liver.
