Advice & Tips: I started taking Milk Thistle 1000mg 2 x's a day. My liver enzymes were 3 x's normal and getting worse with every lab test. After I started the Milk Thistle, my liver enzymes decreased by half after 2 months. I had another lab draw in June and my enzymes have NEVER been better. I am now taking the Milk Thistle 4 x's a week. If my lab results go up, I'll go back to 1 x daily.
