Good brand, and this one works well
I feel it in my teeth when I take Thompsons Milk Thistle sometimes, that's how I know it's working. From my amalgam fillings I guess? This helps clean the liver. A good supplement I think if you take a lot of supplements. I like to take Milk Thistle 3 times a day for a few days and then cycle off for a good while again.
Good price and works well. I really like Thompson's stuff.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
