I craved wine. I began drinking as a teenager. I quit while pregnant & raising my little ones. At 35, I used to drink it, or some liquor, almost daily. At 42, I didn't have liver disease (yet), but I would drink to excess often. An employee of GNC told me she took Milk Thistle 3 times a day because it cleans the liver.

I was taken to the hospital for chest pains---making it short---- my liver was enlarged, Dr took me off milk thistle & an estrogen patch was a no no. Thanks to this site I understand now why.

As a result of excessive alcohol consumption, my liver was fattened and my enzymes increased. After using 2 tablets a day and 1 month, indigestion and pain in my liver disappeared. I'm looking forward to my blood results.

I developed a diarrhea type symptom. Having a lose, frothy stool everytime I went to the bathroom. I went 8 times a day and it caused severe cramping. Between trips to the bathroom, I had horrible, loud, rumbling gas that sounded that low, rumbling thunder which was constant, I do have IBS, so I wouldn't recommend it to a person with IBS with occasional diarrhea. Perhaps, it was clearing fat from my liver, but the bloating, horrible loud gas, and diarrhea was extremely uncomfortable.
