My liver enzymes are always a little high, not super high, but always 30-40% over normal range for the last 20+ years. Occasionally they have gone down to WNL when I lost weight (I am up and down with my weight). Therefore I know some of this is due to me being overweight now (about 40lbs), so I have to work on losing the weight again. (I was down to 197 back in 2018, now at 242). I am 5'10, 51yrs old. I am also now on TRT (Testosterone injectable only), which I just started a couple of weeks ago.
I am wondering what vitamins/supplements are the best for Liver health?

I'm not sure if NAC will help what you have, but it is well-known to help certain types of liver damage (e.g. tylenol poisoning) so that is one to investigate.

Maybe sunflower lecithin. I have no personal experience with it but some claim it lowered liver enzymes and is good for liver health. Some reviews on Amazon:

My wife and I took this lecithin to lower liver enzymes. It works great, tool it prior to me having blood work done and the results were amazing. All enzymes were lowered to normal rates.

I've has NAFLD for years. I correlated it back to a choline deficiency and started taking this at 4-5 capsules/day. Doctor was pleased and surprised by my lab results coming back normal after years of elevated liver enzymes.

I recently started MIC B12 injections. This is supposed to be health for the liver. I'll see at my next labs. Before I started HRT my enzymes were way elevated and they had me seeing a hepatologist. The enzymes came down dramatically [well into the healthy range] after I started HCG and Clomid/Enclomiphene therapy. I'm hoping the MIC B12 will reinforce the healthy direction. I've also lost 20lbs which I'm sure has helped.

Here is another suggestion....TUDCA

P. Portincasa, V. Palmieri, F. Doronzo, G. Vendemiale, E. Altomare, C. Sabbà, G. Palasciano, O. Albano, Effect of tauroursodeoxycholic acid on serum liver enzymes and dyspeptic symptoms in patients with chronic active hepatitis, Current Therapeutic Research, Volume 53, Issue 5, 1993, Pages 521-532, ISSN 0011-393X,
(Effect of tauroursodeoxycholic acid on serum liver enzymes and dyspeptic symptoms in patients with chronic active hepatitis)

Abstract: The short-term ability of tauroursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA) to lower the blood levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) in patients with hypertransaminasemia and chronic active hepatitis was assessed in a 3-month, randomized, controlled clinical trial. A total of 53 patients with histologic evidence of chronic active hepatitis in a liver biopsy sample and an increase in the serum values of ALT of at least twice the upper limit of normal in two separate checkups in the previous 6 months were enrolled in the study. TUDCA 500 mg/day divided into two doses with meals was given to 27 patients; the remaining 26 patients served as controls. Follow-ups were performed in both the treated and control patients at 1 month, 2 months, and the end of the study period. All patients completed the study. The effect of TUDCA on liver serum enzymes was evident after 1 month and reached a maximum effect after 3 months, when TUDCA had significantly lowered AST (−44%), ALT (−49%), and GGT (−38%) (P < 0.001, compared with baseline values). Throughout the study, serum levels of alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin remained within a normal range in all patients. A spontaneous slight decrease in AST (11% to 14%), ALT (13% to 15%), and GGT (5% to 7%) was observed in the control group during the study. None of the patients receiving TUDCA reported side effects. Dyspeptic symptoms were evident in 70% of the TUDCA patients and 62% of the controls and were individually scored at the beginning of the trial. After 3 months, the score decreased significantly in the TUDCA group but not in the control group (P < 0.001). Short-term therapy with TUDCA is effective in lowering serum levels of transaminases and GGT, is free of hepatotoxic effects, and improves dyspeptic symptoms in patients with chronic active hepatitis. Further studies are needed to investigate the influence of TUDCA therapy on the natural history of chronic active hepatitis.

I use Milk Thistle: 250mg capsules twice a day. I did a liver panel beforehand, which was elevated, and after, where my numbers were back to normal. That was enough for me so I’ve stayed on it for the last 20 years. It continues to work well, keeping my liver #s in a good range.
