I started taking this after reading Dr Eades' blog about a fatty liver being responsible for excess abdominal fat. I tried his detox diet, but didn't care for such an un-natural way of life. But I continued with this very concentrated silymarin. Lost size without doing anything. My husband, who is super-fit, slim and an exercise fiend, lost the small amount of love handles that started showing up this year. He actually started COMPLAINING that his pants were getting too big. Men!!! I told him that it wasn't his pants getting bigger, but his body getting normal. We take one cap a day. Highly recommended.

I recently got very sick due to mold being in my house. I was breaking out in hives and generally miserable. I started taking this along with some other herbs and vitamins, and I feel tons better! Milk thistle has been scientifically proven to help cleanse and replenish the liver. And a healthy liver is vital for overall well being. I tried some other brands, but I prefer this one because it's only 1 capsule a day (versus 4-6) and it's higher quality. I figure if you're going to do something nice for your body, it might as well be done right.
The Best One

The best Milk Thistle I've ever used! Since it keeps my enzymes in acceptable levels I'll stick to it for the future as well. Moreover that it has absolutely "sensible" effects on the prostate functionining as well.

I think this is the most potent milk thistle on the market. However, I'm not sure if this is truly full spectrum, so I take this with Eclectic Institute milk thistle. On a side note, I'm not too happy with iherb having so many products constantly out-of-stock.
