For thousands of years‚ milk thistle has been used for its many potential health benefits. Also known as Silybum marianum‚ it has been used in traditional medicine to support kidney‚ gallbladder‚ and liver health. We now know that milk thistle contains a group of flavonoids called silymarin. Flavonoids are antioxidants that can help your body fight off the effects of disease‚ free radicals‚ and illness; free radicals can harm your cells‚ potentially causing sickness or discomfort. Silymarin—which is made up of silibinin‚ silidianin‚ and silicristin—has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties‚ making it a powerful compound.
Silymarin is especially beneficial to your liver because the compound encourages cell regrowth. In most studies‚ those taking milk thistle extract experienced improvement in their liver function increased. Milk may also alleviate swelling‚ inflammation‚ fatigue‚ and nausea in certain cases.
Milk Thistle Capsules by Designs for Health provide 140 mg of milk thistle extract. This extract has been standardized to contain 80 percent pure silymarin for maximum effectiveness. This supplement is fully vegetarian‚ making it safe if you prefer not to consume animal products.
Each 90-capsule bottle of Designs for Health’s Milk Thistle should last you for about three months if you take one capsule per day. Talk to your doctor if you'd like to increase or alter your dosage.

Overall Rating for Milk Thistle - 90 Vegetarian Capsules
I use Milk Thistle by Designs for Health to detox my liver when over taxed by diet. I have found Milk Thistle to be high quality and effective.
Effective - good quality product.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.

Perfect mg strength for my dog.
Dogs can get high liver enzymes just like people and the veterinary prescribed medicine is great but very expensive. One of the main ingredients in the prescribed medicine in Milk Thistle with Lecithin (which is very important) its key to the absorption of milk thistle in our bodies. The 140mg Milk Thistle is working great for my dog. My dog is doing very well on Milk Thistle and the Vet is happy with the results too!
Its very hard to find Milk Thistle with Lecithin for proper absorption!
I give this to my dog who needs a lower mg than most people do so the 140mg works great!!
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
