|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.|
|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:||Hello, please can you tell me if Asatone is used in your extraction and if so why?
|A:||Yes, Acetone is used to do the Extraction. This is the easiest and the best way to retain purity and potency of content.|
What size and shape are they?
Each small easy-to-swallow tablet is 8mm round.
|Q:||Are your milk thistle capsules suitable for vegetarians?|
Yes, these Milk Thistle 3000mg tablets are suitable for vegetarians.
|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:||Is this product suitable for vegetarians.?|
Yes, this product is suitable for vegetarians.
|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.
|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.
|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??|

|Q:||hi can you please tell me before i buy your milk thistle tablets how many mg of silmarin are there in each tablet.
