Hepatitis C is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis C virus. It is transmitted (in many ways) by contact with hepatitis C infected blood. Hepatitis C can be active in the blood, and cause liver damage without the person having any symptoms.

It is important to note that no amount of self-care or supplements will cure hepatitis C. There are highly improved treatments for hepatitis C with high cure rates and few side effects. Treatment can be done in as little as 8 to 12 weeks. Proactive care will help your liver as you seek treatment and recovery.
