How long do I need to take these supplements?

This varies. For anyone who has chronic digestive issues or fatty liver, our physician network recommends full dose for 2-3 months minimum. For candida overgrowth, this will again depend on severity. A month at a minimum.

For Maintenance: Hepatiben dosage should be 2 capsule per day for 2 month out of the year. Leaky Gut Repair should be taken a few times per month or when you are feeling discomfort. Candida Complex should be taken after eating a meal heavy in sugar or carbohydrates – also after taking any antibiotics

Does Liver Medic comply with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) GMPs?

We take great pride in providing high quality, safe products to our customers.

All of our supplements are manufactured in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) set forth by the FDA. We go a step further and are additionally NSF certified, which is a far stricter international standard for quality.

To be compliant in both these certifications, our manufacturing, packaging, labeling follow well-documented and audited policies.

Manufacturers are required to evaluate their products’ identity, purity, strength and composition. Other requirements deal with such matters as quality control, the design and construction of manufacturing plants, record keeping and consumer complaints.

How do I know which supplements to take or where to start?


If you been diagnosed with fatty liver, have elevated blood sugar or an autoimmune issue. Also consider taking Leaky Gut Repair as this is the first step in NAFLD and adrenal support (Zen products).

Leaky Gut Repair

If you have any of the following symptoms: IBS, diverticulitis, gas, heartburn, SIBO, ulcer, constipation, food sensitivities or diarrhea.

If intestinal discomfort is severe you may want to take 4-6 capsules or 4-6 scoops per day of Leaky Gut Repair. Again, this protocol should be followed for 2-3 months for sever cases.

*For most severe cases like diverticulitis or extensive food allergies – consider 2-3x dose for the first two months, following by normal dosage for 2-3 months after that.

Candida Complex

If diet is high in sugar or carbohydrates, consider starting Candida Complex 3 to 4 capsules / days after starting Leaky Gut Repair. If your diet is low in sugar and carbohydrates and you’ve never experienced a UTI you can ignore Candida Complex.

Digest Harmony

  1. If you have had your Gallbladder removed.
  2. If you have problems digesting gluten.
  3. Many people have leaky gut and issues creating their own digestive enzymes. Remember, after 40 – we are not as efficient in making digestive enzymes. Most people over the age of 40 need digestive enzymes.

Sugar Balance

If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or T2 diabetes. These are issues with the liver and for a longterm solution, please take Hepatiben.

Are there any known contraindications with prescription drugs?

Our formulations are developed knowing users are taking common prescriptions and raw materials with known issues have been avoided.

No no reported issues with Pharmaceutical drugs like; Metformin, PPIs and blood pressure modulators.

However, even though much effort has gone into reducing the risk of contraindications – it would be unethical to state a zero risk. If you are concerned, we always suggest you discuss it with a healthcare practitioner.

Do I take these on an empty stomach or with food?

All of our products have greater efficacy when taken on an empty stomach. Some even have enzymes that could be partially neutralized by food as in the case with Candida Complex and Serrapeptase. One of Leaky Gut Repair’s mechanism of action benefits from coating the digestive tract, but that only works if there is no interference from a recently consumed meal. We would only recommend you take food with our supplements if this is your only option due to sensitivity.

What dosage should I follow?

Follow the directions on the bottle, but with the following caveats:

Hepatiben is designed for fatty liver – if you are just looking to clean your liver then you take 2 capsules at night not 4. Otherwise, take 4.

Leaky Gut Repair needs to be taken aggressively if your digestive problems are severe. taking 2 -3 times the amount of Leaky Gut Repair has shown to be fast, effective and safe.

Should I take these supplements during the day or night?


Hepatiben: the liver is most active at night so it is best to take it before bed.

Leaky Gut Repair: one of the mechanisms of action is coating the GI tract. Taking it before bed allows this to take place over a longer period of time.

Zen Sleep: this works best 15-20 minutes before bedtime


Candida Complex, Serrapeptase: timing of day or night makes no difference. The main driver to keep in mind is to take them on an empty stomach.

Zen Calm: daytime formula that relieves anxiety whenever it comes up.

I am allergic to shellfish. Can I take your products?

Yes, but not Leaky Gut Repair. The glucosamine is sourced from shellfish exoskeleton. It may not create a problem for someone who is sensitive, but if you are allergic, we recommend taking Leaky Gut Repair powder (shellfish free) when in-stock.

Is Liver Medic Kosher?


Are ALL your products GMO Free?

Yes, all our products are GMO free. Almost all the health issues we are addressing are driven by GMOs and their pesticides, this is a requirement for our raw materials.

What diet should I follow?

Everyone’s physiology is unique like a fingerprint. Many diets work wonderfully but only intermittently… Therefore,, they need to be changed periodically. With that as an overview, we see many people benefiting from the following diets:

  1. FODMAPs – low carb, low sugar diet. Higher in proteins and healthy fats. The focus is more on vegetables than processed foods
  2. Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) – very restrictive diet, low carbs, low sugar and no allergens. This means no gluten, diary, nightshade or latex family vegetables.
  3. Blood Type based diet. Your diet should compliment the composition of your physiology, especially your blood. This reflects ethnic groups in their corresponding ancestral geographic locations and matching them with the foods typical of that area.

How long should I take the following?


Hepatiben should be taken at night to take advantage of the liver’s active cycle when sleeping. For those who have been diagnosed with some degree of fatty liver, taking 4 per day for 2-3 months is typical. For those with slightly elevated blood glucose levels or just want to clean the liver, 2 capsules per day for one to two months is recommended (do this twice per year)

leaky gut repair

Most of our physician network has agreed a protocol of 2-3 months does a great job of repairing the digestive lining for most people. This may include the first month at double the dose and month two and three at the normal dose. However, in severe cases, 8-9 months is in order for full repair. It depends on the severity and if discomfort, sensitivities or allergies return, more work needs to be done.

Candida Complex

An effective candida cleanse should be done for at least a month. Some people will take a few months depending on the severity and reach of the overgrowth. For those who have chronic candida, UTIs or believe their case is severe – please take Leaky Gut Repair for 7 days at double dose before taking Candida Complex. This reduces the die-off from triggering an immune response causing supplement sensitivity.


This depends on the application. If you’re taking this to in conjunction with Candida Complex to reduce GI tract biofilm, one month is likely sufficient. If you are using this to reduce scar tissue from an accident or scar tissue after recovering from fatty liver, 3 months at a minimum is recommended. If this is for endometriosus, this can be an ongoing maintenance or taken when pain presents itself. If this is to reduce circulating spike protein – this can be multiple months. For those who have battled lyme borrelia, please be aware this case initiate another bout of attack.

How do I know if I have leaky gut?

Most people have leaky gut, but many don’t realize it. Listening to your body, the symptoms can include pain; GERD, SIBO, gas, bloating, food sensitivities, burping, nausea or autoimmune conditions. Sometimes the condition is so mild at first that hardly any of these symptoms are present.

How do I know if I have candida overgrowth?

One or more of these are common:

What should I expect for side- effects?


Many users report weight loss, regular bowel movements although less than 3% report detox symptoms like muscle aches. If the latter happens, reduce the quantity of Hepatiben to one per day and take more water. This will stop in a few days and you can resume two per day or more.

leaky gut repair

Some may experience gas from bacteria that are rebalancing their population. Slippery elm is considered a prebiotic, that may also contribute to gas production. This is temporary and is occasionally part of the healing process. This is by no means experienced by a large percentage of users.

Candida Complex

Same as Hepatiben. If there is any level of leaky gut, its highly recommended users take Leaky Gut Repair for 4-5 days before taking Candida Complex. Otherwise, users risk becoming sensitive to the ingredients.

Can I continue to take PPIs (proton inhibitors)

If the PPI has been prescribed by your doctor, please seek their professional medical advice regarding their continuation. That being said, studies indicate that acid reflux or GERD is the result of stomach acid pH not being low enough to engage the esophageal sphincter and cut flow to the esophagus. Therefore, adding a PPI to further neutralize stomach acid is moving in the wrong direction. This may seem counterintuitive because this approach works in the beginning because neutral stomach mixture no longer burns the esophagus. But the long-term damage of providing a neutral environment for pathogens to proliferate in the stomach and ultimately enter the GI tract creates much bigger problems for the patient. A better solution would be taking Betaine HCl for a week.

How do I take Healthy Gut System (Hepatiben, Candida Complex, Serrapeptase)

Take two Hepatiben at night, the next day take two Candida Complex and two Serrapeptase on an empty stomach. Continue this regimen going forward. The reason we recommend taking Hepatiben the night before is to help trigger the liver to start it’s detox cycles before the body comes in contact with additional die-off compounds from the activity of Candida Complex and Serrapeptase.
