No offense, but what made you think that milk thistle would have any psychoactive effect?

I take it on and off, I did not notice any added benifits while on it...like you said it wont hurt. The benifits may show themselves 20 years from now when doctors marvel at how you are still alive and healthy while consuming a fifth a day.

"l...", nor anyone else, suggested that it had a psychoactive effect. It is merely a product that herbalists sell to the credulous.

I'm just confused as to what it has to do with alcohol.

I would say that, for me, bananas and eggs, as well as Smart Water or Powerade really help.

How about cilantro? Always heard that was good for the ol' booze-processor.

Don't hate, cilantro on eggs or in salsa is slammin.

I am with Savage, coriander (as "cilantro" is known everywhere else in the World) is horrendous.
