Milk Thistle Overview
Milk thistle is the #1 recommended natural herb for liver health, confirmed by hundreds of clinical studies to protect your liver against virtually all types of damage. Its therapeutic benefit comes from its seeds. Silymarin is the name given to the extract of its seeds. Silymarin is comprised of three main flavanoids:
- silybin - also known as silibinin
- silydianin - also known as silidianin
- silychristin - also known as silicristin
According to the studies stated above it has been proven time and time again, that the silybin flavanoid in the silymarin extract is responsible for the majority of milk thistle's health benefits, even though it only makes up 50% of the silymarin extract.
What is the evidence to support the claim that UltraThistle is significantly better?
UltraThistle contains a patented, pharmaceutical grade milk thistle that combines silybin, the most beneficial flavanoid in silymarin (milk thistle) and phosphatidylcholine the most important component of all cell membranes, at the molecular level, to provide you with a milk thistle supplement that is clinically proven to be 10 times more absorbable than regular milk thistle.
The phosphatidylcholine, in addition to its own many liver supportive qualities, is used to help your body better absorb the silybin. It surrounds the silybin, protecting it as it travels through your body. It acts as a protective shield and can be thought of as a supercharged delivery system. It delivers the silybin through your body in a way that increases its absorption into your body's cells and, most importantly, your liver, by 10 times that of other silybin and regular silymarin (milk thistle).
Proof UltraThistle is absorbed 10X more than regular silybin.
In order for an ingredient to be utilized by your body, it first needs to be absorbed by your body. Better absorption leads to better utilization and better results.
In medical research, plasma levels are used to measure absorption. This graph demonstrates the notorious lack of absorption of ordinary silybin found in other milk thistle products, compared to the absorption of silybin in UltraThistle. On its own, ordinary silybin (the blue line) is barely absorbed at all, meaning practically none of it is utilized by your body. Compare that to the highly absorbed silybin in UltraThistle (the red line).
As you can see, the silybin in UltraThistle is quickly absorbed by your body, available to be used where it is needed most. Absorption levels of UltraThistle peak at 1 hour and even after 6 hours, though much of the UltraThistle has been depleted, there is still 10 times more silybin from UltraThistle in your body being utilized than ordinary silybin found in other milk thistle formulas.
This proves the difference between knowing a supplement works vs. hoping it works.
Most milk thistle sold is standardized to 80% silymarin. This means silymarin, the active ingredient in these types of milk thistle supplement makes up 80% of the total milligrams. Therefore, if you purchased a 360 mg milk thistle product standardized to 80% silymarin, you would actually only receive 288 mg of silymarin. (360 mg x .80% = 288 mg silymarin).
Since most silymarin contains roughly 50% silybin, to continue the example above, a standardized milk thistle product containing 288 mg of silymarin will only contain 144 mg of silybin (288 mg x .50% = 144 mg silybin). So out of the original 360 mg of standardized milk thistle that we started with above, only 144 mg are silybin.
Therefore UltraThistle contains more than 2x the amount of silybin than other milk thistle supplements of the same dosage (360 mg of silybin in UltraThistle vs 360 mg of ordinary milk thistle).
With a daily dosage of 360mg of silybin and 20x the benefit, UltraThistle is the world's highest potency milk thistle formula on the market today.
Why is UltraThistle a value at $44.95?
It's simple. Although there are cheaper alternatives, UltraThistle has been clinically proven to provide you 20 times the benefit for much less than 20 times the price. Now, that's a real value! Do not sacrifice your health by taking a less expensive, inferior product. You only have one liver and one body.
Try UltraThistle Risk-Free!
Dollar for dollar, no other milk thistle formula will beat UltraThistle for absorbency, effectiveness, total benefit, and value. WE GUARANTEE IT!
Im doing this review to tell every person out there to buy this product!.. it works!!. My first lab test came back with elevated AST and ALT enzymes. I read about the product, bought it in conjunction with Liv 52, abstained from my usual vodka martinis to red wine and lo and behold 6 months to the date I went for a second lab test. Guess what?. My liver enzymes are within the normal range thank GOD and this product. Please note that I had been taking Liv 52 alone but it did not help me without Ultra Thistle. I truly believe that the combo is undoubtedly the formula to success!.. BUY IT AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!Robert C

Ok where do I start? I had stage 4 breast cancer that went to my liver. I overcame it but was left with scar tissue which supposedly turned into chrriosis. Dec 31, 2016 I started experiencing ascites where I needed to have a parcenthesis (drainage) every 5 days. Intuition led me to this wonderful supplement. I had my last draining on Feb 9, 2017. My thistle arrived that evening and I started the supplement that night. I woke up and the swelling around my liver subsided and slowly the fluid stopped accumulating in my abdomen. I have been on it since and I am nearly back to my normal 29 in waist. I am a customer FOR LIFE!!!R. Galvan, Amazon Review
Great Experience so far
I am excited ! today I went to my dr's apt and my liver enzymes level have lowered, not quiet normal yet but getting there. I start taking Ultra Thistle 1 month ago among with very consistent healthy diet ( I am not doing gluten, eat as much organic food as I can and grass feed red meat eventually ) and everyday workout, at least 30 minutes walk or biking. I have lost 13 pounds so far and I would like to loose another 5-10 pounds to be in a great shape and hopefully bring my numbers to normal. I really feel the Ultra Thistle is a great supplement together with my diet and exercises. (Sorry for any grammar mistake but English is my second language)Amazon Customer, Amazon Review

Great Milk Thistle
Started taking this product after blood work revealed high liver counts. My sister-in-law referred me to this great product. My AST went from 74 to 30 & ALT dropped from 144 to 47 in 8 weeks. ALT still a little high but will be continuing with the Ultra Milk Thistle from now on. I also feel better & have more energy. Have always been very healthy until I had knee surgery to repair the meniscus and didn't tolerate the pain meds, took ibuprofen and Tylenol which then affected my liver. I am very pleased with this product!Martha C. Trujillo, Amazon Review

I ordered this product because of the high reviews on quality and effectiveness of the product. I received 2 bottles one week and two days ago, one bottle for my spouse and one for me. Since then, we have both pulled out 2 capsules each that were completely empty. Also, I have taken milk thistle for years because of taking medications for 3 back surgeries and on occasion, being excessive in drinking alcohol...I truly haven't noticed a difference in this brand compared to others I have taken, aside from the empty capsules and price of this brand compared to others.Amazon Customer, Amazon Review
Reply from Natural WellnessWe're very sorry that you experienced this with our product. It is highly unusual for there to be completely empty capsules in the bottle. If you're able to see this, would you please give us a call directly (our number is 1-800-364-5722) so that we can look into this further?

Seems to be one of the most strongest milk thistle supplements on the market. However, I didn't feel much of an effect from it compared to other liver supplements out there.Amazon Customer, Amazon Review
Reply from Natural WellnessResults are generally hard to measure with nutritional supplements, because they don't work the same way as medications, where you'll usually notice a difference quickly. Supplements provide benefits that grow over time. The amount of time before seeing or feeling results will vary for each individual, however results are not typically immediate and therefore you might not necessarily see or "feel" results right away. The real benefit of milk thistle is that it has been clinically shown to slow fibrosis. To really measure fibrosis levels your doctor would have to test for fibrosis markers. As with any supplement, results are based on consistent and continued use. To ensure that you gain maximum benefit it's imperative that you take supplements as recommended on a consistent basis.
I have HepC with some damage to my liver. I have been taking UltraThistle for about five years now and definitely feel it working to maintain a healthy liver. I an certainly tell the difference when I don't take it! Very grateful.Anna West

I have been using Ultra Thistle since 2013 for my liver health. I was diagnosed with HCV and told by several people and my doctor to use Milk Thistle to help my liver detox my blood. I am not a doctor but I believe Natural Wellness' product, "ULTRA THISTLE", made me feel like I had a bit more energy and I felt comfort in knowing I was helping to decrease the stress that the HCV was putting on my liver.
I also have just begun using NAC as a booster for helping with detoxification of free radical in my blood system. I am hoping that it helps me. I have been relieved of my Hep C virus but left with fibrosis with a F-4 score. Essentially, I now am battling with cirrhosis. I am hoping that these two products are helping my liver to do it's job! It is very hard for me to tell, I will know more after my next round of lab tests and ultra sounds.
I spoke with several doctors and it seemed like each one of them had their own ideas on whether Milk Thistle was beneficial or not. One doctor told me to double the dose I was taking. Another told me to stop using it during my treatment with Harvoni. Still another doctor seemed to be rather neutral about the use of these products.M.S.R., Calif
W/out too much graphic detail my Liver is messed up. Hep B 20 years ago, Drugs 20 years ago, Alcohol up till a year, even had an Aunt & an Uncle die of Liver Cancer that never drank or drugged or smoked or anything, so some is even genetic. As a Veteran i get Labwork all the time and i can tell you this stuff helps, when i go a week w/out it, my enzyme levels shoot way up, and i get those horrible pains also. So i got PROOF. For years i used the stuff at WalMart , over priced GNC and the lot, they use fake numbers to fool you, and read bad things when researching and did not get the relief i get from this brand. The bottom line is in the LabWork and the LACK of pain. Do your own home work, like i did. If you do the math this product is not really that pricey. I ride Horses so i bounce up & down alot, so does my enlarged Liver...believe this helps. One day of hard riding after w week w/ out this product i can barely move. I can ride 4 days a week when i take this like im spose to. Even my Doc's at the VA recomend Milk Thistle. They dont prescribe it yet tho. They did Fish Oil that way for years, but now they prescribe Fish Oil. I hope theres a day when the Fed's will provide Vets this product.ThistleHorseWhistle
I contracted Hep C in 1973 from a blood transfusion. I have been taking this product for the last 12 years and my Dr. is amazed that I have NO liver damage. I am currently on the new Harvoni treatment and stopped the milk thistle for during treatment. I am NOT detected for Hep C after 4 weeks on treatment. As soon as I finish with hep c treatment I will be a return customer for Liver Support and Detox. This product saved my liver and I thank this company for that!morab
This product seemingly has kept my hep c from progressing out of stage 1. I am very grateful to my dr. for telling me about this product. I have had nothing but excellent service from natural wellness company. I would like to thank you at this time for many years of great customer service.Joy
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the many years of excellent service and for your excellent products! I have been battling with Hepatitis-C due to a Tattoo that I got in 1976 while off base when in the Military. Although my viral load is in the many millions, (the amount of the virus in my system) my last biopsy showed, and these were the words of my Doctor, that my Liver was like that of a new born baby! He was amazed beyond words! Now mind you, I have had this diease for almost 40 years! First of all I want to give my Lord Jesus the thanks and Glory for keeping my Liver and for Natural Wellness for such a great product (UltraThistle) that has helped me to live throughout the years unaffected by this devastating disease! Sincerely, Eddie SyrekEdward J Syrek

I have to thank you and point out to others on the fence about putting their Liver Disease self-treatment on auto-ship for the rest of your life.....I am a long-time NAFLD patient and recently had to do something different because no matter what we do, this is a progressive disease. The products from Natural Wellness came and I received the immediate turn-around I was looking for and even though I am an old lady on low income, I had to decide this was the best choice for my life and the auto-ship idea is a Godsend. I had been taking Milkweed power capsules which stopped working. This new approach is terrific. Thank you Natural Wellness.Ariel Gail MacLean

UltraThistle worked for me
I had been drinking far too regularly (5 nights a week), exercising a few times a week and eating less than healthily. I had been taking a CVS brand of Milk Thistle thinking it would protect me. Wrong. Went to the Dr for a pain in my upper-right abs and my liver values (not surprisingly) were moderately elevated to AST/ALT 45/50. I freaked out, did a ton of research, and bought UltraThistle. Along with eating slightly better, only drinking on the weekends (2 nights), and busting my ass in the gym, a month later my liver values have decreased to 26/25. Obviously, my change in lifestyle helped, but about a week after I started taking this, the pain in my upper-right abs has gone away completely. I'd say this stuff works.Eric, Amazon Review

I am 59 yrs old & I have been using Ultra Thistle for about 4 months now due to an enlarged liver infused with fat that was making me very sick. The doctor said I may not be able to reverse it. My condition is technically called NASH. My liver is shrinking & I feel so much better. The doctor said I was doing amazing that he had only seen maybe 2 other patients in his entire career turn it around as quickly as I have. He said keep taking it & of course I have a strict diet too. My prognosis was doom & gloom & now I am reversing my NASH! I believe Ultra Thistle is my life saver & I will always take it.S. Osburn, Missouri
My husband has Hep C and cirrhosis of the liver. I've been giving him your UltraThistle for years and his team of Drs. told him recently "Whatever you are doing, keep doing it because your liver is fully functioning and your numbers are great!

I've been taking milk thistle products for several years now. A few years ago I discovered UltraThistle. Over these same years I've had regular lab work done with regards to my liver functions. Even though I suffer with liver disease, my liver is functioning normally as has been documented by my lab work! I believe this is in a large part due to the UltraThistle I've been taking.

I have used UltraThistle for years with great results. ANY research at all regsrding Milk Thistle will reveal its curative qualities. And of ALL the M.T. out there, Natural Welness' UltraThistle is hands-down the best - specifically in bioavailability. As an aside, my FibroSure numbers remain within specs while using UltraThistle. No taste, no belch, no ill effects - just a squeaky-clean liver! And the service from Natural Wellness has been superb. I'm no healthcare provider; however, I highll recommend BOTH & am in no way connected to either.Anonymous
It's good to know there are still companies where the customer is treated with proper consideration and respect...[and] I want you to know how pleased I am with UltraThistle. My latest lab results showed that all five of my liver function tests were well within normal limits! I will definitely keep taking this fine herbal remedy as it has done a truly remarkable job. It really is a pleasure doing business with your company.Joseph E., MD
If my last liver scan is correct it seems to show improvement in damage to the liver. I have been taking UltraThistle for several years now. When selecting supplements, one has to consider who is producing it. Many supplements can be rendered useless even if they start with quality products and then do not process them properly. So many, many things go into a quality supplement and I feel Natural Wellness produces superior products.Anonymous
It saved my life!
Seven years ago doctors gave me a few months to live. I refused to take a chemotherapy and list for organ transplant too long for poor guy like me... But, because I was not ready to give up, I started long search online: "What can help in helpless situation?" Praise God, our hard prayers were answered, I found the website Natural Wellness and got from them Liv.52 (I take 4 a day) & Maximum Milk Thistle (Now they got [UltraThistle]-even better and I take 3 capsules a day). My liver totally restored, damaged parts are still there but not affecting my health at all. Seven years I am faithfully taking these magic capsules, feel good and planning to live long. Awesome product!Victoria Love, Amazon Review

Take one capsule three times daily or all at once. Each bottle includes 90 capsules containing 360 mg of Silybin Phytosome® - a one-month supply.
The German Commission E Monographs (considered by doctors to be the bible of herbal effectiveness and safety) states there are no known contraindications for using milk thistle extract. Additionally, there is no known toxicity level.
Please consult with a health care professional before starting any diet, exercise or supplementation program, before taking any medication, or if you have or suspect you might have a medical condition, are currently taking prescription drugs, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Milk thistle (silymarin) may reduce the effectiveness of oral contraceptives, therefore backup birth control methods should be used while taking UltraThistle®.
UltraThistle® contains 360mg of the active ingredient Silybin Phytosome® (Siliphos®). Silybin is the most beneficial component of the milk thistle extract. Silybin is then bound to phosphatidylcholine which has been shown to dramatically increase absorption, biological activity and delivery of silybin to your liver.
