Milk thistle is a very safe and proven herb that has been used for over 2000 years. Milk thistle is well-known as a liver herb, protecting the liver, aiding its daily functions and helps to regenerate damaged liver cells. Considering that numbers of harmful chemicals and drugs in our environment and how to inhale/eat them, coupled with stres sful lifestyle like drinking, lack of sleep etc, our liver is constantly overworked. Our liver is involved over 300 bodily functions and it doesn’t take a rest (or we will die). Therefore, it is most important to take milk thistle daily! It is also a powerful anti-oxidant that can reduce bad cholesterol, boost immune system, halting cancer growth, diabetes, neuro degenerative diseases and many more! This product also comes with dandelion, another liver herb that is commonly used with milk thistle. Dandelion also comes with the most of the same benefits as milk thistle. The formula also uses two les s common liver herbs, Wasabi Japonica and Picrorhiza Kurroa. This is a powerful combination since the herbs work in synergy to aid our liver (much better than standalone)! The caps are vegetarian, not too big and easy to swallow. The supplements contain no fillers, binders or flow agents! This ensures that you do not add additional chemicals via the pills itself. I like that Healthforce Nutritionals uses glas s bottles that are eco-friendly, protect the ingredients from air (airtight metal lid compared to plastic caps), UV light (due to dark shade) and heat. You can store their supplements for long time and the quality will not change. It is also highly recommended to take fiber supplements to aid the body in removing the toxins removed by the liver. Personal experience – The ingredients are really of high quality. You can really smell the authentic fresh herb/food scent from the capsules itself. I take 2 caps daily so the bottle can last 2 months. You can really feel that your body is cleansing when you take products! Skins (another detox organ) gets much better and your brain feels les s foggy. You get more energy as well. This is currently one of my arsenal of supplements! Check out my page for more reviews!

I've been using this for years. In recent months, I have noticed an acetone-like odor but continued to take it because I trusted the brand name. However, my ALT has elevated to an alarming level, 99 (from 30s) in just four months. I feel very sick, although this can be due to other reasons. I will contact the company to inquire.
