Acetaminophen (APAP) is one of the most popular pain-relieving and fever-reducing medications in the world. However, metabolizing this drug is a costly biological process which creates toxic byproducts that damage the liver. In fact, acetaminophen use is the #1 cause of liver toxicity in the US and Europe.1
We are excited to announce that our latest study, Probiotic Bacillus Spores Protect Against Acetaminophen-Induced Acute Liver Injury in Rats, has just been published in the journal Nutrients.2
