Silymarin/Milk Thistle Extract
Silymarin/Milk Thistle Extract capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain 150 mg of milk thistle extract, standardized to contain a minimum of 80% of the flavonoid silymarin (120mg).
Milk thistle, a common herb native to the Mediterranean, has been widely used for its nutritional support of liver function for over 2,000 years. Seeds of the dried milk thistle flower are rich in silymarin, a bioflavonoid complex of three flavonolignins: silybin, silydianin, and silychristin. Silymarin is responsible for milk thistle’s powerful protective and regenerative activities in the liver.
The liver is the body’s detoxifying organ, disabling toxins such as ethanol, environmental poisons, pesticides, and certain pharmaceuticals. In addition to its detoxification properties, the liver plays an essential role in protein, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism, cholesterol synthesis, bile secretion, and storage of fat-soluble vitamins.
Silymarin/Milk Thistle Extract capsules may be a useful nutritional supplement for individuals who wish to enhance healthy hepatic function through the natural protective and regenerative properties of this herb.
