    ok i wanted viridian,organic, looks great but then it’s in a wierd blend of bilberry extract, alfalfa and spirulina.

    I’m thinking amount [72 mg] is too tiny to hurt the diet or cause die-off from the spirulina. Am i right?

    Also why isn’t anything else listed in the ingredients? None of the usual stuff i’ve seen in every other vitamin pill. [good quality brands like solgar but they still have something to lubricate or make up the pill case!]

    Very strange

    INGREDIENTS: one vegetarian capsule provides: Standardised Milk Thistle seed extract (80% silymarin) 175mg Raw organic Milk Thistle herb powder 172mg Viridian bilberry extract, organic alfalfa and spirulina blend 60mg

    thanks again.

    You don’t want to take anything containing bilberry. Surely you can find a milk thistle herb without bilberry.

    ok there’s a few but its all very confusing:

    I’m currently taking Biocare Silamarie but it’s marketed at ‘overindulgence of food’ and it contains milk thistle fruits, as i understand it it is the seed extract that is most effective? They’re also suspiciously cheap for the brand etc.

    I feel this milk thistle product may be the best on the market and is worth checking out:

    I hate promoting a product but it just worked very well for me.
