In mild to moderate cases of liver diseases, 3 months treatment with Himalaya Liver Care should be sufficient. In severe cases, one may require long-term treatment with this.

Can I gain weight with Himalaya Liver Care?

Himalaya Liver Care will indirectly help to increase weight by increasing appetite, improving digestion and enhancing the absorption of the food. It has no direct impact on weight gain or weight loss.

Are the Liv-52 bottles from India a better version that the USA domestic bottles? The pills from India have a red coating where the pills from the USA have a clear coating. I have heard the actual pills from India are a better product that the American version. Can you confirm?

Most of the ingredients are same in both versions. Indian version contains Mandur Bhasma as an additional ingredient. Liv 52 Syrup formula is same. In my opinion, both will have similar hepatoprotective effects with a slight difference.
