Good 500 mg magnesium. Gradually increase the dose until it causes diarrhea. The best dose is one less than that amount.

Magnesium Malate — has the added benefit of softening gall bladder and kidney stones for flushes and easier passage.

P5P Usual dose is 4 a day though up to 6 may be required

Methylcobalamin This is the maximum dose most people will need, 1 gram a day.

Zinc 5o mg or one of these a day is the usual dose. Older men may wish to take two for prostate health.

Selenium 200 to 600 mcg a day is the usual dose. 400 mcg or  more is toxic, use L-glutamine to help with this.

L-glutamine 500 mg a day to help with selenium toxicity

MSM One gram a day is the usual dose.

Spanish Black Radish From Standard Process — highest quality. It may not always be in stock. Usual dose is 1 to 4 a day.

Spanish Black Radish alternate. This one is not from Standard Process, but is a good alternative though not as high quality. Usual dose is one a day.

Iron:

Ferrofood by Standard Process — highest quality. Need is between 4 and 6 capsuels a day.

Natural Iron is a good alternate. Need is between 1 and 3 per day.

Copper Liver Chelate Standard Process is ideal but hard to find online. This copper is a good alternative, the dosage would be between 4 and 5 per day.

NADH Metabolics has the best. Need is 1 to 4 per day

Metabolics also has a liquid NADH

Alternate NADH, need is one per day.

NADPH Epigenetics International is the only source I know of for this. Please let me know if you find another source.

SAMe One a day is the usual dose.

Betaine (TMG)  from Metabolics. Usual need is one capsule a day.

Trimethylglycine from a different source. Usual dose is between 100 and 400 mg of this one.

DMG liquid from Metabolics. The usual dose is 1 to 10 drops, probably closer to 3 to 5 drops.

This is an alternate DMG. The max dose is one capsule. You may need to split the capsule — half to one capsule a day.

Rosemary, usual dose will be one capsule a day.

Bluberry Leaf, usual dose will be one capsule a day.

Watercress, usual dose will be one capsule a day.

Cysteine, usual dose is one capsule a day.

Glycine, usual dose is one capsule a day.

Glutamine, usual dose is one capsule a day.

Pantethine, Metabolics is the best quality. Usual dose is 1 capsule a day.

Metabolics also has a liquid Pantethine. The usual dose is 4 drops a day

A lower quality Pantethine will work as an alternate. Usual dose is up to 6oo mg a day.

Acetyl Co A Factors from Metabolics is the highest quality. Usual dose is one capsule a day.

Glucuronic Acid is found in Alclear by Metabolics. Alclear was made specifically for this phase of liver detoxification. You can also get it in the form of D-Glucarate, the usual dose is one a day. Note: Alclear is a better product for this, but the alternative is given since Alclear is shipped from England

Omega 3 Fatty Acids:

Krill with Astaxanthin. The usual dose for liver detox is two a day. However, 6 to 12 a day for a month is a good idea for anyone who has not been eating fish or taking fish oils for some time.

It is a good idea to keep fish and Krill oils in the refrigerator or freezer because that helps them to open up in the small intestines for better absorption. Also keeps them from oxidizing on the shelf.

Dosages are the same for these omega 3’s.

Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil. Great option for cutting costs. Freeze for best actions.
