  • Pure Encapsulations’ Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract) features a natural ingredient that has been used for centuries due to its health benefits. This supplement contains milk thistle extract that has been derived from the Silybum marianum fruit. The herb is highly active‚ and works to protect your liver in several ways. Each dose contains 80 percent pure silymarin‚ maximizing its effectiveness.

    This supplement promotes healthy liver function by combating free radical damage‚ as well as the damage to the cells that may be caused by cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is a chronic liver disease that occurs when the tissues in the organ are replaced by fibrosis‚ scar tissue‚ and other nodules. The most common causes of this condition are long-term alcoholism and hepatitis B and C. In many cases‚ cirrhosis shows no visible symptoms. However‚ it can be the source of various discomforts. Once it becomes severe‚ the only cure is a liver transplant—but even that might not be sufficient.

    Scientific studies indicate that patients with cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis may live longer and experience better liver functioning when taking milk thistle supplements. Silymarin is also associated with potentially improved liver functioning in viral hepatitis patients. According to preliminary evidence‚ it may also promote renal (kidney) and colon health.

    How exactly does Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract) by Pure Encapsulations work? Every vegetable capsule plays several roles: it stimulates the synthesis of protein in hepatic (liver cells)‚ supports your natural supply of the antioxidant gluthathione (which pollution‚ stress‚ aging‚ medications‚ poor diet‚ radiation‚ and other toxins may deplete)‚ and promotes superoxide dismutase activity.

    This supplement is also available in a smaller 60-capsule size.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypo-allergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.
