The only milk thistle tincture I purchase. Good product at good price point compared to others.
I bought the Milk Thistle when I had an issue with my back which was affecting my urinary track. I am so glad I did. The last thing I need is to have a problem going to the bathroom! Within a week my issue cleared up but just to be on the safe side I will be taking it weekly. I also put a few stops in my dogs water. They are playing like puppies! One is 10 years old and the other is 12 years old. Thank you for an excellent product!
