The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of Protandim on the degree of liver injury after one year of supplementation. Protandim is a nutritional supplement composed of the following 5 botanical extracts: Bacopa Moniera extract, Milk Thistle extract, Ashwagandha powder, Green tea, and Turmeric extract. Protandim is commercially available and can be purchased without a prescription. Our findings could lead to a better understanding of the role of oxidative stress and antioxidant therapy in NASH and may ultimately help improve patient care.
Hypothesis #1: Protandim will lead to a significant improvement in NAS compared to placebo.
Hypothesis #2: Protandim will lead to a significant decrease in serum markers of oxidative stress and liver chemistry tests.
Hypothesis #3: Protandim will lead to decreased levels of TNF- α compared to placebo.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
