2.Alcoholic Hepatitis
The liver is a marvelously sophisticated chemical laboratory, capable of carrying out thousands of chemical transformations on which the body depends.

4.Medium-Chain Triglycerides
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats with an unusual chemical structure that allows the body to digest them easily.

The cranberry plant is a close relative of the common blueberry. Native Americans used it both as food and for the treatment of bladder and kidney diseases.

9.Copper
The human body contains only 70 to 80 mg of copper in total, but it's an essential part of many important enzymes. Copper's possible role in treating disease is based on the fact that these enzymes can't do their jobs without it. However, there is little direct evidence that taking extra copper can treat any disease. The official U.S. recommendatio...
