milk thistle really 1000mg?
Hey i got 1000mg milk thistle from vitamin world and i went to a diff supplement shop today and this guy says any milk thistle above 300mg is fake. does that mean the 1000mg **** i got is fake? cauise im int he middle of a cycle and im wandering if i shoudl take this or if its even 1000mg really? thanks also will taking milk thistle during a d-bol test and eq cycle reduce your gains.

The guy is a jackass he doesnt know what hes talking about why would it be fake its so inexpensive to make its not like they need to they just put more powder in the pills then the product he does. 1000mg ed is very health dosage and will not effect your gains whatsoever all it does is help to repair the damaged liver cells.

Anybody that makes a statement like "any product X over Ymg is fake" is an idiot! That's all I have to say on this. A statement like that is ignorant, and so is the idea that he can know every product available in the vitamin/supplement market. Enjoy your entirely real 1000mg Milk Thistle

what you should be looking for is the silymarin content. You may very well have 1000mg milk thistle but if the silymarin isn't at least 80% I wouldn't spend any money on it.

Ok i just called this **** company... turns out they are a bunch of idiots who give out false advertising..
I asked them if the milk thistle i had that was 1000 mg was 1000 mg of milk thislt extract at 80%.
Hes like no... its 1000 of the plant but not of the actual "milk thistle"
Im like so how much is actually in it...
He responded with " I cant answer that question or make any claims unless its STANDARDIZED. Standardized being the minimum amount of the actual content."
He then went on to say that they dont produce a standardized milk thistle that is 1000 mg .. the highest they sell is 250 mg Standardized, and that there is no such product available now that is 1000 mg of the actualy silymarin extract.
Hope u guys learned something from that.
09-30-2004, 05:29 PM #18
yeah the product in question was standardized to 25% thats why there was only 250mg of silymarin for the 1000mg of milkthystle
from now on it is key to look at what % things are standardized.
Tribulus beiong one really good example
so i would pop 2 pills ed instead of 1
