Milk Thistle and Crohns NEW
by: Annette

Hello there,

Reports suggest that taking milk thistle supplements are a positive aid for IBS and Crohns sufferers and if you experience with constipation.

It works by increasing bile and this helps to break down fat within the small intestine. It can relieve constipation and will protect the lining of the intestines. Milk thistle may also protect the liver from those medications that can be toxic to your liver.

It can help a weakened immune system but do note that for some people it can increase diarrhea, bloating and intestinal gas so for some people, it may not be as beneficial.

As with everything, there can always be side-effects as people react differently.
