There are some supplements out there that have shown some evidence of helping to repair liver damage. The most well-known one is milkthistle. You can find it at any healthfood store or buy it online. You should discuss it with your doctor, but I think it's considered pretty safe. Another one is kudzu/kuzu, which comes from the common plant and is used as a thickener/starch in Japan, but also as a liver tonic. The vegetarian store where I shop sometimes sells it as a food or cooking ingredient, but you can also find it in capsules.

As for food, the French swear by dandelion leaves as a liver protectant. I kind of like them, but I'm partial to somewhat bitter vegetables. You can eat them raw or sautee them like spinach.
