I was taking milk thistle capsules from produced by various brands and every one of them was light brown in color and didn't really seem to make much of a difference in my liver function numbers, nor reduce my inflammation. I have just finished using my first packet of milk thistle powder from Microingredients and it has made quite a difference. My liver function numbers are within normal range and while my total cholesterol level is still very high, all of my ratios are perfect (high HDL, low LDL and triglycerides). I think this product is helping me recover from my vitamin D3 overdose, which resulted in hypercalcemia. The hypercalcemia damaged my liver and my kidneys and I have a long way to go yet, but hopefully, this will shorten my healing journey.
I bought this for my cat who is recovering from feline hepatic lipidosis (fatty liver disease)
I was crushing a Denamarin, which is a tablet version of this combined with SAMe, and putting it through her feeding tube. Now her feeding tube is out and she does NOT like the tablet and can detect it in her food. I ordered this because it is easier to disguise in her food. I credit much of her recovery from this serious, life threatening illness to milk thistle. She was literally at death's door, down to 6 lbs from 13 lbs! Milk thistle helped to heal her liver and now she is a healthy 9 1/2 lbs, eating on her own, and active again! This milk thistle is easy to administer, effective, and a true life saver.
This saved my dog's life. I tried the liver support powders and liquids for dogs, but they have additives, like fructose among others that seemed harmful to him. I don't have any negative reactions with this powder. It is wonderful!
