Milk Thistle Benefits-Herbal Medicine - Best medicine (Liver Tonic) for liver function damage or live inflammation
Some days back when I visited my doctor, he said that my liver is weak and I need to take care of it. I was bit confused as what I can do about it. At that point of time, I decided to do some research about the possible cause of live dysfunction and it remedies. When I checked with my friends and relatives about the best medicine available around, most of them suggested me to take milk thistle. I read some articles online about milk thistle and I got the information below. Apart from that, I also posted this question (Does Milk Thistle really help in cases of liver dysfunction? ) in Hubpages and got some very good response.
