Kirkman’s Milk Thistle is a hypoallergenic product formulated for individuals with special requirements and sensitivities. It is offered in 100 mg capsules that provide 80 mg of silymarin (three liver protective flavonoids).
Milk thistle is an herb that grows in moderate climates of North America and Europe and is easily recognized by its large purple thistle-like flower heads.
By the Middle Ages, the seed of the milk thistle plant was used to support liver functions, to promote the flow of bile and as a general tonic for the stomach, spleen, gallbladder and liver.
Milk thistle consists of three potent liver protective flavonoids: silybin, silydianin and silychristin. Collectively these are known as silymarin. To be effective, milk thistle products must be standardized to contain this active blend. Kirkman's Milk Thistle is standardized to contain 80% silymarin. Recent research has indicated that silymarin helps to protect against the depletion of the antioxidant glutathione in liver cells.

iHerb Customer Reviews
My daughter has autism and has a whole list of supplements she takes on a daily basis. Her doctor recommended we take milk thistle to help relieve possible overburdening of her liver. Kirkman is our choice because it is free of all substances that can cause intolerance.
