    Dear Dr Hebbar,

    Since Arogyavardhini Vati contains mercury and heavy metals, it is always restricted to be taken for limited period with proper dosage and supervision, and also considered unsafe for pregnant ladies and children, I would suggest that people suffering from liver disorders and wish to keep their liver healthy should opt for Liv.52 (By Himalaya) in tablet or syrup form to be in the safer side and without any side effects and period restructions. Liv.52 contains Bhumu Amalaki (Phyllanthus niruli) and other safe herbs that makes it a complete herbal remedy to protect the liver. Liv.52 can be taken as a daily liver tonic by all for a longer periods. I am taking Living.52 for the past 14 years and maintain good health.

    Best regards,
    Kunwar Singh
