  • Supports detoxification in the liver

You probably don't spend much time thinking about your liver, but it does lots of heavy lifting for you! It filters out toxins from your blood at the amazing rate of a quart per minute. It sorts out the good from the bad, keeping anything useful and tossing out the junk. As the world becomes more and more toxic, a liver working at optimal capacity plays a bigger role in health and well-being than ever before. Swanson's Milk Thistle supplement is the ultimate in liver health. Silymarin, a powerful antioxidant flavonoid, contains specific protective benefits for liver tissues, making milk thistle a premier liver tonic. Our convenient capsules deliver 500 mg of milk thistle nutrition that won't put a dent in your pocketbook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milk Thistle The Doctor wanted my husband on 1000mg and it was a struggle to find that dosage. So he ended up taking 4 caps a day, plus his reg meds. So much better to take ONE tablet!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3rd Purchase of this product This bottle does not seem as productive as the last 2 bottles. I don't know if it is the batch, time of year or if something has changed. I finished bottle and will probably reorder a different type of milk thistle next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alternative To Discontinued Product When a Swanson Milk Thistle combo product was discontinued I researched and found this one as the best alternative. I have been taking it several months now and do so as a means of supporting my liver.

Q: How much silymarin is present in each 500 mg milk thistle capsule?

A: This is a full-spectrum milk thistle product, meaning that it is not standardized to provide a set amount of any active compounds like silymarin. Silymarin naturally occurs in milk thistle, so it will be present, but the amount will vary from pill to pill.

Q: Why does the color and smell seem to be different than my last order?

A: Natural color variations can occur from batch to batch. Botanical ingredients have a distinct and earthy odor noticeable after opening the bottle.
