    Milk Thistle Dosage

    At MTR – we aren’t huge fans of the dosage amount. With only 150mg’s of milk thistle in a single serving we can’t help but feel like this isn’t enough. It’s clear to see when comparing Jarrow Formulas milk thistle to other brands that it’s lacking.

    Milk Thistle Absorption

    Jarrow Formulas milk thistle, like many other milk thistle supplements available on the market, only uses Silybum Marianum. This is not the most absorbable form of milk thistle available on the market.

    Effectiveness & Protection

    Many customers should expect not the most effective milk thistle available when considering Jarrow Formulas milk thistle. Only 150mgs of Silybum Marianum is not going to cut it for those looking for serious help with health ailments.

    Other Ingredients

    No other ingredients.

    Value

    At the price point that we found ($11.95 on Amazon) It’s hard to debate the value. 200 capsules of 150mg per serving milk thistle is a great value.  But – it’s important to remember that you are getting what you pay for. At first glance – the price point may make this milk thistle seem like a great choice – but when digging deeper – it’s inadequate in the most critical things that we look for in milk thistle: Absorption, Dosage, and Effectiveness. Buyer beware.

    1. Wasn’t completely sold on this product…price looked nice but didn’t think it was best on market – and i NEED best on market!

    2. I suppose this MT works if you are on really tight budget and can’t get the higher quality milk thistles. As they say – SOME is better than NONE. AMEN!
