Liver Enzymes

Last Updated: January 27 2020

Liver enzymes are used as biomarkers to test the toxicity of a supplement and are elevated in case of fatty or cirrhotic liver. Lower blood levels are thought to reflect less-damaged liver cells.


The most common liver enzymes are aspartate transaminase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT).
