About Maximum Milk Thistle® and its active ingredient:
I prefer Maximum Milk Thistle® over other milk thistle products because, after much research, I am convinced the Phytosome process dramatically improves the effectiveness of this important herbal medicine. I take one 240mg capsule three times each day.

...The best way to take milk thistle is either in capsule form, especially from concentrate, or from a form that contains other substances—such as beta-cyclodextrin or phosphatidylcholine (silipide)—that render milk thistle more soluble in water. In this way, milk thistle becomes more bioavailable to the body and its effects are more pronounced.
Dr. Melissa Palmer, MD
Dr. Palmer's Guide to Hepatitis Liver Disease, What You Need To Know
(While not mentioned by name, Maximum Milk Thistle® is in capsule form, is concentrated and is bound with phosphatidylcholine, meeting all three of Dr. Palmer's criteria for superior effectiveness.)
...Silymarin (milk thistle extract) is a potent liver-protecting substance, useful in all types of liver disease... Although silymarin is quite effective clinically, it is not very bioavailable (it is hard for the body to absorb). In contrast, binding one molecule of silymarin with two molecules of phosphatidylcholine in the Phytosome® process creates a highly bioavailable new form of silymarin. The Phytosome® form is far superior to simple silymarin in every respect.
Dr. Michael Murray
...A new form of milk thistle that is bound with phosphatidylcholine, called silymarin Phytosome®, may be even more powerful for fighting liver damage...
