Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) has been used by herbalists for more than 2,000 years. A member of the sunflower family, it is among the most ancient of known herbal medicines. Early healers discovered that Milk Thistle could stimulate the flow of bile from the liver, supporting healthy digestion and various liver-related ills. Recent research confirms the fact that Milk Thistle extract does protect against liver toxins. One of the most important toxins that Milk Thistle protects against is alcohol, a study reported on the use of 420 milligrams of silymarin daily in patients with liver problems. Twenty subjects were followed for 6 to 36 months, 50% of whom showed definite improvement. A Milk Thistle standardized extract is derived from the seed of the plant. This extract is comprised of compounds, called silymarin, which research indicates have antihepatotoxic (liver protectant) properties. Silymarin consists of numerous flavonolignans, including silybin, isosilybin, dehydrosilybin, silydianin and silychristin. Both silymarin and silybin function as antioxidants, protecting cell membranes from free-radical-mediated oxidative damage. In addition, these compounds protect red blood cell membranes against lipid peroxidation and hemolysis (breaking down of the red blood cells) caused by certain red blood cell poisons. In fact, numerous studies conducted on silymarin indicate that it not only protects liver cells from toxic substances, but that it also stimulates protein synthesis to accelerate the regeneration and production of liver cells. Moreover, Milk Thistle may increase the effectiveness of Glutathione, a potent antioxidant in the liver.

Our Milk Thistle is standardized to contain 80% silymarin (80mg) and is available in 60 and 120 count vegetarian capsules.
