    I was recommended this several years ago, and both my husband and I take it every morning we both have our livers tested annually and there have been no problems when tested. I used to always buy it from holland and barrett but they suddenly said because of new EU Regs they could not stock the larger sized bottle, I found your website when browsing and am very glad I did, cheaper, buy one get one free, and delivered to the door.

    Improving liver health

    It has been a bad habit of mine in the last 15 years to drink excessive amounts of alcohol without taking care of myself and I am now paying the price for this negligence. I have experienced ill health recently so a friend of mine thought it would be a good idea for me to try the milk thistle and to be honest, it really has made a difference to me so I'm sure it will for others.

    It occurred to me that I was neglecting the health of my liver at the ripe old age of 51 and was becoming increasingly concerned it would be getting worse so I invested some time in researching what I could do to help myself and heard from a friend, in the local pub ironically, that milk thistle would be the best thing for me to take and I followed his advice and now here I am reaping the benefits.

    You are cost effective and the products seem to work well! 
    Graeme Milburn, Newark
    I use a range of supplements from Simply Supplements, but primarily I use Milk Thistle to try to minimise liver damage from prescription medications. So far as I can tell, it is working. The main reason that I bought it from your company, is that my previous supplier, Healthspan have massively hiked their prices up to the point of making it prohibitively costly,  so I am now a happy Simply Supplements customer :o)

    Milk Thistle has benefitted me so much! 
    Andy Starr, Skegness
    I have been using simply supplements for several years.Due to enormous pressure of work, i began to drink heavily. Just to cope. The shape of my chest changed and it was apparently due to hormonal changes. I have been buying milk thistle and my normal shape has returned.    I understand that milk thistle has been banned by the EU, due to other companies not providing what they describe. I have stocked a good deal of this product, even though i do not need it any more. I also buy glucosamine 1000 mg every day. Definitely has made a difference for my left knee. bad accident on a motor bike in 1977. Completely smashed my lower leg. I was told that i would always have a weakness. Skegness is a small place and i have recommended your site to so many people. So much cheaper than the local chain businesses. There are very few sites that i feel comfortable with. You are one of the few that i have confidence with.

    Q: I would like to start taking milk thistle but am worried it might cause problems with gal stones is this likely to happen?
    A: Several studies have shown that Milk thistle is particularly useful in stimulating the gallbladder, promoting the flow of bile. It contains bitter substance silymarin that stimulate bile production. However, we recommend that you speak to your GP or pharmacist before taking this herb supplement especially if you are on prescribed medication.

    Q: I have just purchased Milk Thistle tablets, as I read the are good if you have Gilbert's Syndrome. However I have found they give me a very nasty taste in the mouth which lasts for 24 hours. any ideas?
    A: We are unaware of this type of symptom or reaction when taking Milk Thistle. However, research has it that some medications or supplements can leave a metallic taste which can be unpleasant but a common issue. If this symptom persists, we advice that you consult your GP or pharmacist to ensure that you are not allergic to Milk Thistle.
  • 27th February 2014 - j miles
    Q: Can you take these milk thistle tablets to help improve a fatty liver?
    A: Several scientific studies suggest that substances in milk thistle (especially a flavonoid called silymarin) protect the liver from toxins. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and it may help the liver repair itself by growing new cells. Therefore taking milk thistle may help reverse fatty liver. We also recommend eating less carbohydrate and more vegetables and drink less alcohol.

    Q: Hi - How long does this product take to improve your liver function and if a liver function test has to be taken asap -would an improvement show that my liver function has improved?

     As everyone is different, and supplements are not prescription medications, some people will notice benefits sooner than others. We cannot advise specifically how long it would take for you to notice a difference; however we generally advise anything up to 6 weeks for supplements to take effect.

    Q: My current Milk thistle tablets are 200mg Silmarin but the price is now prohibitive. 54mg seems very low . Is this adequate or is it possible to take 2 tablets to bring the level up to that provided by most companies.

    The Milk Thistle Herb Extract is 60mg, and of this 54mg is Silymarin. We would not advise that you consume more than the recommended 1 tablet per day.

    Q: I have a 13 year old springer Spaniel who is very fit apart from the fact that he is drinking more water than he should.Blood tests show that there is a problem with his liver and the vet has suggested that I should try milk thistle but they are unable to suggest the dosage perhaps you could help.

     Milk thistle supplements list the appropriate human dose on the label. An easy way to convert the dosage for your dog is to take your dog's weight, consider it a percent, and multiply the recommended dosage by that percent. For example, if your dog weighs 20 pounds then you would give your dog 20 percent of the recommended human dosage. Our recommended daily dose for human consumption is equivalent to 54mg of Silymarin. Dogs that are very ill with liver disease may take a higher dosage. Please consult your veterinarian.


  • 9th May 2011 - Kristina Morris
    Q: What time of day is best to take milk thistle? I have heard it works best at night?

    You can take these Milk Thistle tablets either in the morning or evening with a meal, and it is recommended that you try to take them at the same time every day.

    If you are taking any prescription medication, you have a medical condition or you have specific concerns about the suitability of any of our products in relation to these, you should always consult your GP or Pharmacist prior to taking supplements.

  • 8th May 2011 - Gary Glazebrook
    Q: Can you please confirm this is just 54mg of Silymarin per 3000mg tablet? This would make these tablets roughly 1.8% Silymarin compared to the standard 80%. This seems extremely low??

     Yes, each tablet contains  Milk Thistle Herb Extract 60mg (50:1) equivalent to 3000mg (54mg Silymarin).

  • 7th September 2010 - gary lowe
