Topic: Wellness Question for International Posters
As part of an effort to focus on and identify ways to promote liver health, I have come across a handful of articles that suggest taking the suppement Milk Thistle. While most articles have lauded the benefits - one of the trends I have seen in these articles is the reference that the medical community outside the United States has "long" known of Milk Thistles benefits and have "prescribed" it to patients for years.
I am curious - as I know there are many posters from outside the U.S. on this board, has Milk Thistle been a suggestion of your (or your loved ones) medical team?
Research on supplements can be sketchy at best - but I tend to beleive if it won't hurt me, why not.
