Milk Thistle Extract (60 Capsules)
(Ethanol/Water Extract) 250mg
Supports Healthy Liver Function and Acts as a Hepatoprotective Agent
Silybum marianum contains silymarin, which is composed of the flavonoids silybin, silydianin, and silychristin, with silybin being the most biologically active. Silibinin displays hepatoprotective properties in acute and chronic liver injury (Flora et al., 1998). Silymarin supports the liver's capacity to protect itself from and remove toxic chemicals, many drugs, alcohol, and other exogenous toxins such as volatile organic chemicals and organophosphate pesticides. It achieves this by increasing the systemic levels of SOD, and raising the capacity of hepatic glucuronidation and glutathionation (Blumenthal, Goldberg & Brinckman, 2000).
Selective inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase leukotriene formation by hepatic Kupffer cells can at least partly account for the hepatoprotective properties of silibinin (Dehmlow, Erhard & de Groot, 1996).
With more than 100 quality clinical studies involving over several thousand patients using the standardised German milk thistle preparation, it is the best documented therapeutic agent available to treat various types of liver illness related to toxicity, such as alcoholic cirrhosis and drug-induced hepatitis (Blumenthal, Goldberg & Brinckman, 2000).
1 to 2 capsules 2 or 3 times daily, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
