Milk Thistle (Standardized)
LOVE YOUR LIVER
I have used Lipotropic Factors to feed / nourish my Liver for about 5 decades. I have used Milk Thistle Standardized to 80% Silymarin to clean off and protect my liver for about 3 decades. Before I found this Swanson Superior Herb product --- Milk Thistle Standardized Extract supplying 250 mg. @ 80% Silymarin in the 120 capsule size, I bought Jarrow's product, which is also higher quality and higher potency than the rest of the competition. However, Swanson bests Jarrow's 150 mg. product, and even with Swanson selling the Jarrow product at 50% of suggested retail, Swanson's higher potency product is lower priced. Again, Swanson knocks it out of the park. This Swanson Superior Milk Thistle keeps both my wallet and my Liver in good shape. In my opinion, the Liver is the most important organ in the body, --- terribly overworked and abused throughout one's entire life --- so I seriously recommend this product to everyone.

Assisting Liver Cleansing
Most people in today's world know about the toxins everywhere that assault the human body. As a senior, I have been around and exposed to chemicals, pesticides, car emissions. I use Swanson Liver Essentials to assist in keeping a healthy liver, a strong support in a toxic world. The ingredients in this Swanson product are liver specific. My doctor reports my liver enzymes are right on target. My friend opted for Swanson Milk Thistle for liver protection. I share my product with my son also.

I use this for liver health. With most herbs, try to get a standardized extract or else you have no idea how much active constituents are in the product.

We are never ever without this.
We've used milk thistle in our household for about a decade. This was the first (now of many) Swanson brand product I purchased. I've recommended it to many friends who now purchase it too because it is the best quality of any brand I've ever had, and it is priced extremely well.

I take Milk Thistle to nourish and protect my liver. Swanson's product is a great value. It's not something you can feel but research indicates it's good to take. The liver is way too important not to protect and this is a very affordable way to do so.

Look up all of the research on silymarin on PubMed.

If your looking for a good Milk Thistle supplement then this would be a good buy. This product is cheap and is a perfect dosage. I am taking Milk Thistle to assist my liver while detoxing.

benefits from taking this product
I have seen such a difference in my husband after starting on milk thistle for the benefits of his liver health. His energy went back to 90% improvement than without any supplementation at all. He himself comments weekly on how well he feels and is quick to recommend it to all of his friends. The price is also such a great relief during these times of economic difficulties.

The price on this can't be beat. Not one with this potency. Beware of other brands. Some are contaminated with lead or cadmium. Swanson has never failed ConsumerLab testing for contamination or adulteration.

I had an awful ordor coming from my skin. After taking milk thistle in combination with red clover the smell has gone away. I feel really good about these products and would recommend it for anyone who has a uncontrolable ordor coming out of their skin.

Milk thistle is said to protect the liver. In addition it is now known that it is an excellent antioxidant. I prefer to use products that are as natural (close to the way they appear in nature) as possible. This product has done what I expected it to do and as a result I feel much better than many folks much younger than I.

This "Swanson Superior Herbs" line of milk thistle contains 50% "whole seed" and the other 50% contains an 80% standardized extract, making for a great value for the price....
The difference between this line of milk thistle and the "Swanson Premium" Full Spectrum Milk Thistle is that the "Full Spectrum Milk Thistle" does not contain any extract.

This is a good value, and great for your liver. Glad that there is both the extract and the powdered root. Although I can't say it helps my hangovers be any shorter though.

I believe this product is why I have a healthy liver. I first read about Milk Thistle for liver function in an article at my pharmacy. I don't think I would do as well without it!

Great liver protector
This is a quality product for liver protection. A standardized extract formulation assures one of superior potency. As a Reiki Master, I must be aware of and rely on quality products which is why I shop at Swanson.
