Milk Thistle has been subjected to numerous studies but there is no good evidence that it is of any benefit at all. It certainly has failed to live up to its claims of providing liver support, cleansing, etc.

As far as risks, side effects, etc, from: http://nccam.nih.gov/health/milkthistle/ataglance.htm

Side Effects and Cautions
In clinical trials, milk thistle appears to be well tolerated in recommended doses. Occasionally, people report various gastrointestinal side effects.

Milk thistle can produce allergic reactions, which tend to be more common among people who are allergic to plants in the same family (for example, ragweed, chrysanthemum, marigold, and daisy).
Milk thistle may lower blood sugar levels. People with diabetes or hypoglycemia, or people taking drugs or supplements that affect blood sugar levels, should use caution.

Tell all your health care providers about any complementary health practices you use. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care.
