Liqy Moly is a well known European product. But I don't think it will fix it if the piston rings are worn out or valve seals/O-rings damaged. But only a bit worn out,might expand the rubber parts and reduce oil burning.

You can try any leak stop prod.,..for a temp fix.

but the only PERMANENT solution will be an overhaul.

check your pcv valve.  what is the viscosity of the oil currently used?

Do you see smoke from the exhaust when when the engine is raced?

The best thing to do is to get a compression test done. That will tell you if the cylinders are working properly, and if not, how severe it is. Depending on how bad it is, you might be able to just get away with a piston ring replacement or a full engine overhaul. But first - compression test.
