So, I just bought some Milk Thistle, and I was comparing it to others brands.
Mine contains 2100mg (standardized to 80% Silymarin) of Milk Thistle Seed Power.
“In summary, when using Milk Thistle, look for brands that contain at least 140 mg silymarin per serving. Research indicates that a dosage of 200-400 mg silymarin per day is best (taken in two equal divided doses) for obtaining a therapeutic and protective effect.” http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=460640
At 80% Silymarin, one caplet contains 1680 mg. Since it’s not toxic, I’m not worried about overdosing, but would taking this much be a waste? Should I just split the caplet into pieces and take just half a day?
