How much milk thistle should be taken daily when on an "oral" cycle...and whats the preload protocol?

at least 1000 mg ed @ 80% silymarin. IMO pre loading is not needed. It does not "buid up" in the liver.

I for one love Liver Care (formerly known as Liv52); especially after heavy oral usage.

To be honest its for a training partner of mine....hes getting ready for a MMA bout and is taking anavar on its own for 6 weeks as he doesn't want weight gain, just strength and some BF loss. Would 50mg ED var for 6 weeks call for more than milk thistle? Also i've read mixed reviews on pct with that low dosage of var. Any suggestions?

From what I understand, Anavar is liver toxic just like any of the other orals. According to Bill Roberts, with doses of 40 mg/day and higher, liver toxicity is indeed an issue with prolonged use. I would tell your buddy to throw in some Liver Care along with the Milk Thistle.

It wont hurt to use extra supplements. You should look for a tea called rooibos, or redbush. Studies have shown it to have a similar effect on the liver as milk thistle. Liv 52 - there has been some long debates on this on UK forums. Doesnt seem to be as effective as once thought.

NAC, Dandelion and Gluthionine are good for the liver. "Front loading?" we are talking about a herb here not test prop (lol!)

There are a lot of other supps that will help your liver. ALA has antioxidant properties that protect the liver, as mentioned above Glutathione will protect the liver and L-Arginine will Detoxify the liver. There have been studies that have shown selenium could protect against liver cancer!!!

Gluthionine is also administered by IV treatment in some health practices. Very effective.
