Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Liver Detox Along with it's many benefits, it's main virtue is helping liver health. Swanson Milk Thistle is one of the best values around for price and content. In the past I have never given this herb much thought but current research on it's effectiveness for good health has changed my mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from mild thistle I have tried many other brands, some were very expensive and none of them worked as well as this one. This one has worked very well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Batch, Rancid odor I've never experienced any negative odor before with milk thistle, but as soon as I opened this bottle, I was hit with a strong, rancid oil smell. Maybe it was a bad batch, maybe the box it was in got too hot during shipping (April weather-- it really wasn't that hot), but my guess is that somehow a bad batch slipped past Quality Control. -- Manufacture date: 02/16.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best milk thistle for your money! My liver loves milk thistle and really loves it more if it has the active ingredient standardized. Swanson brand offers the best bang for your buck for such high quality milk thistle that would cost twice as much if you bought it locally.
