I've lived with years of major connective tissue diseases and all the Western medicines that docotors instisted I take . . . then, my liver got sluggy I could barley stay awake and felt like I had hepatitus all the time. My eyes were jaundised and and I was naucious all the time. My liver also got dangerously fatty, hard and bloated, I was starting to fail seriously. Started taking this brand of milk thistle and in a few months the western doctors were blown away that my liver was doing so much better without surgery or major RX intervention. They can't wrap thieir heads around it, but my alternitive health care providers and I just nod our heads and smile. I recovered my energy levels and got rid of the nausia, bloating and yellow eyes. The scans show my liver is less fatty and on its way to healing up. This Eclectic Institute product is superiour to other milk thistle products I have tried over the years. I stick to what works best and your company had a very fair price (less expensive than other sites). Thanks for carrying such a good array of superior products.

Though all for local herb shops, I just could not pass up this websites prices including shipping. I paid $5 dollars less for this product and it was shipped to my door within 3 business days. Very happy with the shipping speed and deals! Bookmarked this web page and when it comes time to re-order I already know where I am going.

These capsules contain organic milk thistle seed powder, which generally has a pleasant taste, but occasionally there is a capsule where the contents do not taste so good. It is like when eating a big bag of seeds or nuts, there are usually a few that taste less good.

VERY GOOD BUT IF YOU HAVE THICKENED BILE OR A LIVER STUFFED WITH FAT ...FATTY LIVER DISEASE .... VERY COMMON NOW .... THIS COULD START TO MOVE THE LIVER "INTO ACTION" WHICH CAN CAUSE PAIN BECAUSE THE LIVER IS CLOGGED UP WITH FAT WITH FLD AND THIS CAN CAUSE MORE PROBLEMS .... SO ... FIRST THIN THE BILE WITH LEMON JUICE , AND BITTER HERBS , THEN SLOWLY ADD THIS , VERY SLOWLY TO THE DIET . sorry caps were on ! not angry !

This is an excellent full-spectrum milk thistle with no fillers. However, I think the bottle could use some improvement. The seal leaves behind a sticky residue, which sticks to the styrofoam piece on the inside of the bottle cap - this pulls the styrofoam out of place, which can make it difficult to pour the pills into the bottle cap. I like regular screw caps, but I don't like the child safety cap on this bottle. The labels on Eclectic Institute bottles are not glued on very well. The labels are usually peeling off before I even open the bottle - I always have to finish peeling off the label, since it's irritating when the label is only partially glued on the bottle.

My husband loves it , this product is gentle and nourishing. He tried other brands of Milk Thistle and they were too strong or too unrefined for his digestive system. This brand is just right for him.
