As always perfect delivery and in quick time. The letterbox packaging is a brilliant method of delivery as no waiting in for collection as they are posted through like letters.

These tablets are a substitute for a tablet i am currently taking to support the liver. Due to me being let down with a different supplier i have had to find an alternative. I have read good reviews on this product, but as yet, not put them to the test

I feel confident that the products I order are of top quality. As a pensioner, I am confident that I am getting the necessary vitamins and minerals

Although not as good as they used to be. I preferred the loose pills/capsules in larger quantities. New packaging is difficult to open and very wasteful.

27 January 2015

I was unable to use this product because it's not vegetarian. Complete waste of money. The previous time I bought it it was vegetarian - no warning about product change and when I complained they didn't even offer me a refund despite their so-called policy of refunding if you are not satisfied. Had to buy from Holland & Barratt.

Milk Thistle - helps prevent headaches

10 August 2014

Not really sure whether it does any good. My husband takes it because he has a fatty liver so he thinks it may help.

Thank you for your review.

I just use it to keep my liver healthy. I've no way of monitoring this, but I think it's important, especially when you like a glass or two of wine.

Thank you for your review.
