Your liver is a vital organ responsible for filtering toxins that can cause harm; these days‚ it has to work far harder to eliminate the toxic substances you are exposed to in the environment on a daily basis. It also produces bile‚ which is an acidic substance that promotes the digestion of dietary fats by breaking them down for absorption in the small intestine. By supporting the digestive tract‚ bile salts allow for the effective processing of the nutrients you consume through foods or other supplements.
As a highly concentrated supplement‚ Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract) by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient way to promote healthy liver function. This natural herbal extract comes from a type of daisy native to the Mediterranean and works to support good levels of glutathione‚ as well as superoxide dismutase activity. Furthermore‚ it may stimulate the synthesis of protein in liver cells.
Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract) also works to protect hepatic cells in the liver from free radical damage by stabilizing cell membranes‚ since it is a flavonoid with potential antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. If the liver is mildly damaged‚ milk thistle extract can also help it repair itself by possibly supporting the growth of new hepatic cells.
Every capsule of Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract) provides 250 milligrams of Silybum marianum‚ which has been standardized to contain 80 percent of the active ingredient silymarin (extracted from its seeds). In addition to its benefits for your liver‚ it may also contribute to kidney and colon health.
Take one to four capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ Pure Encapsulations' Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract) should last from 15 days to two months.
