Flora Force is the only Milk Thistle supplement that has not given me heartburn!20/12/2019, By hassanaExcellent remedy for liver.20/12/2019, By hassanaExcellent remedy for liver.03/12/2019, By ThobisaI bought it to detox my liver from toxins.28/11/2019, By Jurgen, DIrector of Flora Force Health Products.@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.10/10/2019, By TessThis 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...04/10/2019, By AdeneGood quality milk thistle - I definitely feel less sluggish when I take this.13/04/2019, By DaniellaTake 2 tablets every day and feel it has helped flush toxins from my liver11/03/2019, By MinniThis is my top choice for a liver support supplement.25/05/2018, By IngridTook this in combination with a liver flush and certainly think it has helped repair some of my damaged liver cells.
