Keep out of reach of children. If suffering with liver problems start with a small amount and slowly increase over several weeks. Milk thistle extract is virtually devoid of any side effects and may be used by a wide range of persons including pregnant and lactating women. However, pregnant women showing signs of moderate to severe toxicity should not be advised to take milk thistle without practitioner supervision as some of the toxins released may cross the placental barrier. Since silymarin stimulates liver and gallbladder activity, it may have a mild, transient laxative effect in some individuals. This will usually diminish within 2 - 3 days. Depending on the type and severity of individual toxicity, clearance from the liver and other tissues of these toxins may cause some transient feelings of headache, nausea or fatigue. These are signs that the body is detoxifying at a rate greater than the elimination pathways can cope with. Reduce the dosage of Thisilyn and increase water and fresh fibre food intake to help flush out the toxins. Dosage can usually be increased again in five to seven days.
