However, since most users take 2 to 4 capsules a day - 600 mg to 1200 mg - 60 capsules per bottle is not ideal; it should be closer to 240 capsules per bottle. That would mean 2 months supply for someone who takes 4 capsules a day or 4 months supply at 2 capsules a day. Much better!"
"This product arrived with the product showing dark brown to tan streaks in the product that can be seen through the capsule. I ordered 4 of them so know I have to return all of them. I don't know if it is that the product is old or some other reason, but other SILIPHOS that I have ordered from another company does not look like this."
"Milk thistle extract has been shown to have hepatoprotective effects; it has other antioxidant effects and also suppresses the ability of some tumors to acquire a blood supply. What is most remarkable about it, though, is its insolubility, which makes it difficult to benefit from it. That's why this phytosome product is preferable to other forms: it will actually dissolve and allow your body to absorb the flavonoids and use them. The only concern I have about Vitacost is whether their products are of Chinese origin or not."
"Excellent version of the most efficacious milk thistle used in clinical trials. Capsules are small and easy to take. As a patient awaiting a liver transplant, Vitacost provides an excellent supply of medical quality Siliphos. I can only await a larger size bottle to improve the values."
