Milk Thistle

 
Milk Thistle provides nutritional support for the liver and blood, and it repairs and regenerates liver cells. It acts as an antioxidant to protect cells from free-radical damage and aids common skin conditions related to poor liver function.

Milk thistle also improves natural bile production to aid in digestion and it protects the kidneys, spleen and gallbladder. This product helps relieve painful symptoms of endometriosis.

Jamieson selects only the seeds from milk thistle plants grown in eastern Europe. The liquid extract is encapsulated without the use of alcohol.
