Regarding Milk Thistle
I've been through the threads,know what it is and what it does.One thing is a bit unclear,is it just beneficial for the negative effects upon the liver due to an oral AS such as dbol ?Is it necessary or beneficial to use it while on a strictly injectable cycle?

In Addition To Milk Thistle
There are lots of reports about Milk Thistle and it's ability to protect the liver especially while using AS that are harsh on the liver. Alpha Lipoic Acid could be used in conjunction with Milk Thistle to further protect the liver:
Alpha-Lipoic acid, also known as thioctic acid, is a natural anti-oxidant which has been used for years in Europe because of it's ability to help maintain or restore liver health. It's strong anti-oxidant capabilities have been used for radiation sickness and diabetes-related neuropathy. It has also been investigated as a possible HIV inhibitor.
The Theory Behind Taking Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Alpha-Lipoic Acid has been used successfully for the maintenance of liver health and as a treatment for several toxin-related illnesses. Alpha-Lipoic acid has been used extensively in Europe for years as a non-toxic nutrient to treat various chemical overdoses such as mushroom poisoning, radiation poisoning and alcoholic hepatitis. It has also been used to treat diabetic neuropathy and elevated liver enzymes. Elevated liver enzymes, which can indicate liver damage, can be a serious problem for people with life threatening diseases. For people who take oral medications such as antibiotics and/or anti-virals, balanced liver enzymes are essential for these drugs to get metabolized properly. Unfortunately, these same drugs can cause increased liver enzymes. Alpha-Lipoic acid may help protect the liver so that you can take certain drugs. A second benefit of Alpha-Lipoic acid may be its ability to elevate the levels of glutathione (GSH) and reactive oxidants. Low levels of glutathione may cause oxidative stress, and cause inflammation and damage organs. It may also damage nerve cells, leading to peripheral neuropathy. Oxidative stress may also speed up the replication of HIV. FROM G-CHILD
