What makes your body produce too much ammonia? How do you

Customer Question

What makes your body produce too much ammonia? How do you cleanse this out of your system?

People with liver damage or liver failure cannot metabolize ammonia in your body and it will build up and become toxic unless treated.

Eating too much protien can increase the ammonia in your body as well.
