I've had gall stones for at least 8 years now. Most of that time I was completely symptom-free but I've had some flare-ups over the past year or so. Frankly, with MRSA, VRSA, and other nasty bacteria in hospitals, I'm going to do everything I can to avoid surgery. I've been taking *Natural Factors Liv-Gall Cleanse Formula* for almost a year now and have been very happy with it. The main herbal ingredients in this supplement include milk thistle, silymarin, turmeric, curcumin, dandelion, inulin, and artichoke. According to the label, "milk thistle counteracts the effects of pollutants, turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that protects the liver, dandelion promotes bile flow, and artichoke leaf aids digestion." The suggested dosage is 1 capsule 1-3 times per day or as directed by your doctor. I've been taking *Natural Factors Liv-Gall Cleanse* twice a day (morning and night) either with or without meal. These capsules are easy to swallow and don't cause upset stomach even if you haven't eaten anything lately. I have no medical evidence to provide that to state that this herbal supplement has improved the condition of my gall bladder, but I can state anecdotally that I've had fewer attacks and issues since I've started taking this product. In fact, the times that I have had some pain and sensitivity are usually when days/weeks have gone by and I've forgotten to take *Liv-Gall Cleanse*. I've been pleased with this product's performance and definitely will continue to buy it in the future.
