Micronutrient supplementation prevents liver injury

Combination of selenium and three naturally occurring antioxidants administration protects D-galactosamine-induced liver injury in rats.

This study investigated the role of micronutrients, such as selenium, vitamin C (ascorbic acid), beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), on liver injury. The experiments were performed with rats. The results suggested that supplementation with micronutrients can prevent the development of liver injury. Further details can be found in the study.
