I also was on l-glutamine but someone on the forum said it converts to ammonia and feeds yeast. So i have stopped that until i can get rid of some of the yeast first. I just receieved my organic milk thistle, however they are whole seeds. It probably would be easier in a pill so i knew exactly how many mgs i was getting. I didnt grind them because i dont own a grinder yet, just steeped them in water, very boring tea, in case you are wondering. Has anyone tried eating the milk thistle seeds whole??
