Milk Thistle Dosage
Hugely confusing. This seems to be purposefully misleading if you ask us. The advertising on the bottle says that the customer can expect to receive ‘1,000 mg of concentrated extract’ When taking a closer look – this is very far from the truth. The back label clearly shows that each serving only contains 250 mg of ‘4:1 Extract’). We only wish that this company would clearly let customers know the amount of milk thistle that they can expect. We have to take off a few notches for the implementation. MTR isn’t a big fan of these sort of schemes.
Milk Thistle Absorption
Spring Valley Milk Thistle contains silybum marianum which is not the most absorbable form of milk thistle available on the market. We’ve notated this in many reviews and will continue to do so here.
Effectiveness & Protection
Silybum marianum is not the most effective form of milk thistle available. For those looking for serious protection – you should consider alternatives. Silybum marianum leaves much to be desired.
No other ingredients.
This is a slightly worse value than Jarrow Formulas milk thistle. The lowest price we found on Amazon (here) was $11.99 for 90 softgels. When considering this isn’t the most optimal or effective milk thistle available on the market – you could clearly see why we don’t rate Spring Valley Milk Thistle highly in the value category.
