Milk Thistle

Standardized 80% silymarin (SILYBUM MARIANUM)

Orally, the fruit and seed of Milk Thistle are used as:

• A Liver Protectant

• Supportive therapy for chronic inflammatory liver disease
• Hepatic Cirrhosis
• Bile Duct Inflammation
• Chronic Hepatitis
• Gall Bladder complaints
• Diseases of the Spleen

Milk Thistle consists of four Flavanolignans: Silybin, Isosilybinin, Silichristin and Silidianin.

These constituents exhibit liver-protective and antioxidant effects.

The theraputic activity of Silymarin is based on two actions:

• The first is an alteration of the outer cell membrane that Prevents Toxic Penetration.
• The second involves stimulation of polymerases which result in Liver Regeneration.

Silymarin decreases Insulin Resistance in people with alcoholic cirrhosis
