    I just got a notice that ProHealth is having an end-of-year sale. One of the items on sale is their liver detox herbs (Liver Detox & Regeneration).

    How do you know if your liver needs detoxification? Has anyone taken this supplement?

    I don't know about Prohealth's product. I do know that the cfs specialist Dr. Cheney recommends Milk Thistle (sylimarin) for liver support. I think ProH. sells that too.

    If you take meds, it is a good idea to take something to support/detox your liver. I do cause I take a lot of meds and have for years.

    Hi Spacee,

    How do you take the milk thistle? Sounds crazy but I got some but I'm not sure when to take it. I have FM and take tramadol 2 tabs ev. 4-6 hrs, usually 3 times during the day and take Cymbalta 30 mg, Soma and flexeril in the evening.

    I don't know when to take it, I guess I should take it away from the meds but don't know for sure. I'd appreciate any suggestions?

    twice a day. One in the AM and one in the PM. I don't know about Prohealth's supplements as I have tried them yet. I got my Milk Thistle from Whole Foods.

    I noticed that taking the Milk Thistle helps for the cleaning out the bowels as well as a great support from the meds that I take.

    Take Milk Thistle at least two hours from your meds, before and after.

    Take care... :)

    Anyone taking meds needs to detox. If you live in a high pollution area, city, you need to detox. If you use alcohol you need to detox. If your exposed to heavy metals you need to detox. I could keep going but I'm sure you get the idea.

    Take care,

    Taking in pm with meds. Will take it at dinner.

    Also liver detox is needed for a fatty liver which is cause by our American Diet.
    But I think the total diet needs to be changed too. Fresh fruit and veggies every meal.

    Googling Fatty Liver Diet gives info.

    Milk thistle, burdock root along with Jerusalem artichoke is very good to detox your liver. I think you can get a good formula with those ingredients at wholefoods or any good HFstore. Maybe Prohealth has those in their formula. Also I used a good probiotic that had been cultured for 3 maybe 4 years. That really helped me.

    Alpha Lipoic Acid is also great for the liver and the pancreas. I would add that to the Milk Thistle.
