    Milk thistle question

    Does anyone know if it should be taken with food, or on an empty stomach?

    Milk thistle question

    I always took it with food, but then I can't hack it anyway and have ended up drinking milk thistle tea.

    Milk thistle question

    Thanks Peri, that's what I thought, but I couldn't find it supported anywhere, and then I oticed that a lot of multi supplements have milk thistle in them, and they are supposed to be taken with food.

    vlad, why can't you hack the mt?

    Milk thistle question

    vlad, I have also read that the only side effect identified with it is diarreha. But that is only supposed to last for the first couple days. What have you experienced. I would imagine that the tea might not taste so good.

    Milk thistle question

    I heard it is much better to take milk thistle in a tincture form. I guess that is true of almost any herb, actually. But that is 1) much more expensive and 2) usually only comes in a base of grain alcohol (thanks, but no thanks!).

    I did try it once, though, when I found a tiny $9 bottle of alcohol-free stuff. You put 30 drops in water and drink it. It tasted fine. Not particularly offensive, anyway (like valerian-- ugh!).
