    mate imo it helps but not to such a degree that no liver damage occurs with orals like dbol. It is something that people just recommend to 'help' protect. Have not seen any studies on how effective it is but most say it helps when taking orals

    To find studies for it's effectiveness you would have to search medical journals and the like.

    It does not however 'weaken' the oral taken but helps the liver combat the effects of toxicity that occurs due to the liver processing the substance.

    In my opinion, it is a cheap supplement, it provides protection, why would you not use it during a cycle that will damage your liver?

    I always use it during oral cycles and PCT.

    I'm the same as TT, I would rather take the milk thistle to help keep my liver healthy just for the sake of 1lb of lean mass. But just how much does it effect the oral? I bet it isn't too much.

    You might want to consider taking ALA too.
