What Is Liver Itch?

Liver itch is a common symptom of a variety of hepatic conditions. This intense itch can occur anywhere on the body. This itching sensation can be caused by numerous conditions such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver disease and hepatic cancer.

Liver Itch Detox Ingredients

Liver detoxification usually lasts about seven days. A key part of the detox is lactobacillus acidophilus, bacteria located in the vagina and in the large intestines. Other than this probiotic, supplements that should be taken are vitamin C and a multivitamin. Typically on the first two days of the diet only water is consumed. On days 3 through 7 you can consume as much as you want of vegetables, fruits and rice.

How It Works

Toxin buildup in the liver can be caused by drugs, alcohol, fats and other substances. By following a liver itch detox, these toxins are eliminated from the liver. This causes the itching to lessen. For example, legumes are sources of the amino acids arginine and methionine. These amino acids are responsible for neutralizing ammonia and regulating the processing of fats.


The biggest benefit of a liver itch detox is the overall well-being of your liver. When the toxins are expelled from the liver, the liver can function properly. The symptom of liver itching can be reduced to minimal to none. Other benefits can include weight loss, reduced risk of chronic conditions and an improvement of digestion.


You should never start a detoxification diet without first consulting your physician or other healthcare specialist. Liver itch detoxes as well as any detox diet can interfere with medications, pregnancy, breastfeeding and certain other health conditions. All of these detox diets can have harmful side effects such as dehydration, fatigue, dizziness and vomiting.
