Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is an herb that is well documented in early
traditional herbal medicine. Silymarin, an extract of milk thistle, is composed of a family of
flavonoids, primarily Silybin with smaller amounts of Silydianin and Silychristin. Milk thistle has
been shown to increase the liver’s content of glutathione. Studies have indicated that the constituents
in Silymarin may help to support healthy liver function. This
vegetarian formula also includes extracts of Artichoke & Dandelion for additional support.*
Proper liver health is vital for human beings. The liver is the largest gland in the body. It plays a
key role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body including glycogen storage,
plasma protein synthesis, and drug detoxification. The liver also produces bile, which is
critical for proper digestion.
Milk thistle appears to concentrate its main action in the liver. It is well recognized for being a
hepatoprotectant (liver protecting agent) and has been shown to increase the liver’s content
of glutathione. Glutathione is a cellular antioxidant that helps to reduce the damaging effect
of free radicals and supports healthy detoxification processes.
This unique vegetarian formula also contains Artichoke and Dandelion extracts, both known
for their synergistic benefits.*
