Will it do the same thing? and how much should I take?
Most of us who answer questions on the forum used Molybdenum instead of milk thistle so we really can’t compare having not taken it. Milk thistle will remove toxins; whether or not it’s the same intensity that molybdenum has I really can’t say. As far as the dosage is concerned; studies using milk thistle to treat liver disease used 420 mg daily of a form of milk thistle which contained 70 to 80% silymarin; this is the active component of milk thistle, and the amount of silymarin should be on the label. A few people on the forum are using milk thistle instead of molybdenum, maybe they’ll post an answer for you.
For the molybdenum….i found 150mcg (i think) at my healthfood store here…100 tablets. is this exceptable?
You need to take 750 mcg a day when the die-off is strong. Most people use 250 mcg taken three times a day for this dosage. If you have 150 mcg pills, you can take it 5 times a day to obtain 750 mcg.
