I have taken milk thistle supplements for years to protect my liver and detoxify my body and LM's milk thistle extract does not disappoint. It's not the cheapest option on the market but I really like the fact the product is lab tested for potency and also for heavy metals/additives. And as always, customer service and shipping is on point!
