Hi Lisa, thank you for question. I understand how important it is to feel informed and safe about the medications you consider. It’s important to clarify that liver toxicity is generally not a significant concern with the use of rapamycin, especially when taken in low doses, as is common in anti-aging protocols. In fact, the literature suggest that rapamycin may have a protective effect against liver fibrosis, which is a positive aspect.
(We can do a more comprehensive review on the mechanisms of how rapamycin may be conferring this benefit to liver health as part of our research review analysis.)
