Milk Thistle Phytosome capsules are standardized to 80% Silymarin‚ a mixture of valuable flavonolignans‚ bound to phosphatidylcholine (from lecithin) to enhance bioavailability. Numerous clinical studies show that Silymarin supports and promotes liver function in healthy individuals‚ providing an antioxidant effect on the liver‚ fortifying it. Dandelion‚ Artichoke and Turmeric have been traditionally used and scientifically studied for their support of liver health and have been added to enhance the formula. Phytosomes™ are herbal substances that are combined with phosphatidylcholine molecules to enhance absorption and bioavailability.
This new molecule is both water and fat soluble.
How does Milk Thistle Work?
Milk thistle is used by many for numerous disgestive disorders‚ however it shines in protecting the liver from toxins and diseases.
There are three primary ways it helps the liver:
>It is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger‚ joining that select group of nutrients which primarily includes vitamins A‚ C‚ E‚ and selenium. It increases the gluthione content of the liver. Gluathione detoxifies drugs and chemicals‚ so more of it gives the liver more ability to detoxify. "Silymarin also increases the gluthione content of the liver by 53% in healthy subjects... Glutathione is responsible for detoxyfying a wide range of hormones‚ drugs‚ and chemicals." (Murray)
>It reduces inflammation. The active ingredient‚ silymarin‚ inhibits the formation of leukotrienes. When formed‚ these substances damage the liver. (Mowrey)
>By stimulating protien synthisis. Milk Thistle generates the production of new liver cells to replace damaged ones. (Mowrey)
