    Benefits of Milk Thistle

    Ok guys, Milk Thistle. It has actually been used since ancient times for its liver regenerating and protective properties. Silymarin is the active alkaloid in this plant. Silymarin has been theorized to not only prevent damage to the liver by toxins but actually to repair damaged liver tissues as well. This is also suggested to be the case in clinical trials. Injectable Silymarin is also in the beginings of being intorduced in hospitals to be administered to patients who have ingested a fatal does of the Death Cap(Amanita Phalloides) mushroom. That lends even more credit to the liver-protective properties of this herb. So in conclusion I personaly think that this is a great weapon to add to any bodybuilders supplement arsenal, and I personally use it, and have for years, even before I was into lifting.

    i dont have any data off hand. but if you search a bit or look at other boards you will see the trend of ppl saying it. Its not that bad or the end of the world but why use something that, in some cases, has proven to be counter-productive???


    IMO, 4-500mg is ok for short periods of time.... (for oral runs)

    Ok, did a few searches and you are right. There have been studies to show that Silymarin does indeed inhibit function of androgen receptors. I will run it only when doing orals. Very good info, thank you gymrat.

    I see we are all reasonable people here. I've had discussions where the mates were aggressively trying to say MT is worthless, regardless all the studies I pointed out!
