chrisboli - No know negative side effects and it's not expensive - Typical doses are 600 mg a day to
protect/heal the liver.........

Milk Thistle extract works in several ways. First, it strengthens the outer membranes of liver cells, preventing penetration by liver damaging substances, such as alcohol or mushroom toxins. Second, it protects the liver cells through antioxidant action, neutralizing cell damage caused by high-fat diets, smoking and other toxic substances. Last, the extract inhibits the action of the enzyme largely responsible for inflammation in hepatitis.

Alcohol is not the only substance that puts stress on the liver. Pollutants, pesticides and food additives are all things that the liver must detoxify. The liver is the body's second largest organ so, fortunately for most people, millions of its cells can die and it can still function normally. Research has proven, however, that milk thistle can protect this vital organ. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure :) :) :)
