Milk Thistle Plus provides a high quality of standardized extract with the whole, fresh herb developed to ensure maximum regenerative and protective effects on the liver.

Milk Thistle Plus is indicated for hepatitis, cirrhosis, jaundice, fatty degeneration, hypercholesterolemia, varicose veins, and for protecting the liver, spleen and gall bladder against the side-effects of radiation, chemotherapy, food and chemical poisoning, and heavy metal toxicity.
