I was wondering something. I know that the liver formula contains milk thistle extracts, and I had read on a website about someone who takes milk thistle seed powder on a daily basis. They just put a tablespoon or 2 in their Superfood drink.
- Is milk thistle ok to take daily or should it only be used periodically for cleansing?
I’ve never read or heard of any caution for using the Milk Thistle. You can read more about it at the website. It has been used extensively on a daily basis by those clearing liver issues with no ill side effects.
- Is the powder version effective or should a person only use the liquid extract?
I do not believe the powder has the same strength as the extract. Powdered herbs continue to loosing potency as they oxidize. The herbal extract maintains its strength for years. Dr. Christopher opened a 100 year old bottle of herbal extract only to discover it to be strong and good.
Your question on the effectiveness of the liquid over the powdered is easiest to understand when you have knowledge of the value of juicing. The liquid is absorbed directly into the system, while the powder must be broken down and absorbed through the digestive process.
A good suggested use would be 1 tsp. in cup of hot water 3 to 5 times a day. (5 times a day is ever 3 hours.) The more serious the condition the more you would want to use each day.
