The above article also mentions; Chlorella, Spirulina, Ginger, Green tea, Resveratrol and Holy Basil. Naturally I agree, but when it comes to detoxification I think especially Chlorella and Spirulina together with Resveratrol offer a supreme program.
The articles mention several natural agents that can help restore child's metabolic health. Surprisingly, authors failed to mention n-3 PUFA.
The idea that n-3 PUFA may prevent and reverse changes in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease has been controversial until recently. Indeed, the dietary supplementation of PUFAs in fatty liver has been questioned by findings in a murine model of steatohepatitis, in which n-3 PUFAs failed to prevent the development of steatohepatitis because of accumulation of hepatic lipoperoxides (1). Another study in rats published recently showed similar effect (2). However, such effect, may be encountered by combination with other antioxidative strategies, such as treatment with vitamin E.
Other studies, however, showed that lipids called protectins and resolvins derived from n-3 PUFA can actually reduce hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance, in obese people (3). Importantly, a pilot study showed that prolonged n-3 PUFA supplementation ameliorates hepatic steatosis in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(4). Moreover, recent randomised placebo controlled trial showed that DHA supplementation (250 and 500 mg/day) improves liver steatosis and insulin sensitivity in children with NAFLD (5).
