Milk thistle extract is one of nature's most potent weapons to support liver health. Until recently‚ however‚ the technology hasn't been available to fully harness this plant's full benefits. The problem has been the star component of milk thistle‚ called silybin‚ does not dissolve well in water. This makes it difficult for your body to absorb all of it. Scientists have developed a novel technology to overcome silybin's poor bioavailability. The solution is to mix silybin with a nutrient called phosphatidylcholine.
Phosphatidylcholine facilitates transport across the intestinal lining into the bloodstream‚ making it an ideal "carrier molecule" for silybin. Scientists believe that phosphatidylcholine molecularly bonds to silybin ushering it through the membranes of cells in the intestinal tract. This silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex is absorbed nearly five times better than silymarin alone‚ and its ultimate bioavailability to the liver‚ its target organ‚ is ten-fold greater than silymarin alone.
This novel milk thistle extract with phosphatidylcholine contains standardized concentrations of silybin and isosilybin A and B not found in other milk thistle extracts.

Overall Rating for European Milk Thistle - 60 Softgels
By Mary W. Haines
from Hagerstown MD
Miracle med for the liver!
Bought European Milk Thistle by Life Extension for little dog with serious liver problems. Several capsules and his liver enzymes were in the OK range for first time in months. Gave it to another dog and he immediately perked up. Tried it myself. Discovered more energy and feeling of well being.
It works where nothing else did. It saved the little dog's liver and therefore his life. I have suggested it to friends. One got it in and would never give it up.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
