Good for liver support while detoxing
05/05/2020, By Zandri
I have been using Flora Force Milk Thistle for 8 to 10 months now. It is part of the daily supplements and cannot go without it. It may mimic the effects of oestrogen so for women with hormonal issues, speak to your doctor first.

It’s slowly helping my liver to detox and function normally again! Great product!

Excellent remedy for liver.

I bought it to detox my liver from toxins.

@Tess from 10/10/19...thanks for asking a thought provoking question. There is some complexity about recycling these bottles as your suggest. Since it is regarded as medicine, we have to conform to labelling legislation which requires that the label cannot be removed and reattached to falsify products. (You'll notice they stick like 'you-know-what') And we would need to prove that they are completely sterile before going back into production and again avoid any possibility of cross-contamination or chance that an old label can slip back into the production process. It seems like overkill, but those are the rules. (Understandable in the context of biologically active medicines or scheduled drugs). So sadly we are not in a position to do what seems, on the surface, a really sensible idea. But your suggestion is well taken, and we'l keep looking for ways to make our footprint lighter - because we accept that we all share this responsibility to live in a healthier world.

This is a high quality product to detoxify your system. I'll keep using it.
Any way I can recycle the empty bottles back to the company? I feel it's a shame to let it go to general recycling...

Good quality milk thistle - I definitely feel less sluggish when I take this.
13/04/2019, By Daniella
Take 2 tablets every day and feel it has helped flush toxins from my liver
11/03/2019, By Minni
This is my top choice for a liver support supplement.
25/05/2018, By Ingrid
Took this in combination with a liver flush and certainly think it has helped repair some of my damaged liver cells.
