More about milk thistle

Milk thistle is often used as an adjunctive therapy for a range of liver conditions. It has been shown to provide long term liver support and may even assist with regeneration of liver cells. Milk thistle is very popular among those taking certain medications known to cause liver damage and as a liver detox supplement. Our high potency milk thistle is vegan friendly and has a high concentrated dosage for maximum effect. 

What the studies say

Milk thistle’s ability to support liver health has been studied since the 1960’s extensively in the lab, in people and in animal studies. Although across the board there are mixed results as to the efficacy of milk thistle for liver health, as a liver support supplement it remains very popular and there is evidence to support its use.
