What is the best milk thistle brand you could recommend? i was a heavy drinker and recently slowed down and trying to detox/heal my liver some.

You did it: Milk thistle has shown some usefulness in helping the liver overcome short-term injury from some medications, but I'm not aware of any theoretical or empirical-study-based reason to think it's going to help your liver. Truth is, your liver heals itself wonderfully, and the vast majority of problem drinkers who sober up get a perfectly healthy organ back in a few weeks. Keep up the good work.
