Convenient and ultimately cost effective
This is very simplistic and great for green smoothies in the morning or to add to teas.
you do not need to sit there and count 28-53 drops each time you use it.
just fill dropper half full or full and squirt into a tea, juice or smoothie once a day.
so simple and so much better than pills if you are like me and already take allot of tablet supplements/vitamins.

Is this safe for dogs?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: There has been little research regarding the toxicity and effectiveness of milk thistle on canines. Research with rats, whose livers function very similarly to dogs, have reported no toxic effects. Until more research has been done, you definitely should not give milk thistle to pregnant or lactating females and should consult your veterinarian regarding any liver damage incurred by your dog.
is milk thistle the same as milk weed
A shopper on Feb 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Milkweed and milk thistle are in fact two different plants. It is important to understand this distinction because milkweed is toxic and can cause heart palpitations if ingested. Milk thistle, however, is often safely used to relieve ailments of the liver, stomach and gallbladder.

Why can't pregnant or nursing women take Nature's Answer Milk Thistle?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2010
BEST ANSWER: At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that milk thistle is safe (or unsafe) for use during pregnancy. Milk thistle may have some estrogenic (estrogen-like) hormone effects. In general, substances (including herbal supplements) that affect hormones should be avoided during pregnancy, except in special circumstances. For this reason, it is probably a good idea to avoid taking milk thistle during pregnancy, until more information is available.
 
Just because milk thistle is a natural product, it does not mean that it is safe for use during pregnancy. Many toxins, poisons, and drugs are also natural substances. It should not be assumed that a natural product is always safe, or is safer than a conventional medication.
