my doctor told me i had fatty liver and my enzymes were high. I began taking milk thistle and could tell immediate results of having a smaller abdomen, less fluid retention in the right abdomen and relief from back ache and pressure from gas in the stomach. 6 months later my liver function tests are almost normal!!. I look forward to getting the results of my next liver function tests because I keep feeling better and keep taking milk thistle. I do not have any side effects from milk thistle at all.

From what I've read, silymarin is estrogenic, meaning it acts as female sex hormone on the body. As a man, I'm too scared to take it because I don't want to develop breast tissue or sexual side effects. I have no idea how potent it is; maybe I am exaggerating but I'm not taking any risks for now. I wish I had known this before I ordered. I was going to use it to prevent cholesterol gallstones, since it lowers the cholesterol saturation index of bile and has other beneficial effects against gallstones.

Milk Thistle is excellent for my father's hepatitis C problem. This is the number one natural plant that works for liver problems.

It helped me almost immediately - with bile secretion, quicker and better digestion. I'd recommend it or something similar to those suffering from digestion issues. Update 2 weeks later: I stopped taking it as it was causing extreme discomfort and pain in the eyes area. Probably it was just my personal reaction. I bought a similar product from another vendor and so far so good.

This is one of my favorite. I have used that for many years. If I have to take medication, I like to keep my liver clean. This does it all the time. LOVE it and highly recommend it, especially for people who have to take medications.

My naturopathic doctors recommend milk thistle to help my liver clear out the toxic prescription medications I have to take to control my autoimmune and neurological disorders. I take it twice a day for the first week of each month. I forgot to take it for several months and felt awful - nothing in particular, just yucky. I felt like a veil lifted within a few days of taking it again. I have to get regular liver enzyme tests because of my other medications, and they've always been fine. Between the tests and my symptoms, I think this stuff must be working.
