Milk Thistle - high quality extract to detoxify and protect your liver
Only a healthy liver can fulfil its various tasks at an optimum level. Often, the detoxifying function of the liver and the gall bladder is however impaired by alcohol, drugs, environmental pollutants, wrong nutrition or infection.
The milk thistle is the most well-known medicinal plant for liver and gall bladder complaints. It has already been used for centuries to treat liver diseases, and should not be forgotten when it comes to cleansing the liver.
Milk thistle is considered nature's strongest weapon to protect and strengthen the liver and stimulate the flow of bile and the blood supply.
Even in the case of liver poisoning (for example, due to the consumption of death cap mushrooms, alcohol or Paracetamol), milk thistle is preferably used for reducing liver damage and promoting the regeneration of the liver.
In combination with the conventional treatment of diabetes, there are trials done to see whether milk thistle can improve diabetes by lowering the blood sugar level and reducing insulin resistance.
Some trials indicate that it can reduce glucose absorption by the cells, by inhibiting the transport of glucose. Diabetics should therefore consult their physician before taking milk thistle products.
The active substance in milk thistle is silymarin, which consists of multiple bioflavonoids - including silybin (also known as silybinin), silidianin and silichristin. Silybin alone is, however, responsible for 50% to 70% of therapeutic use of milk thistle. Unfortunately, silymarin is not absorbed by the body very well.
With PHOSPHOcomplex™, a special patented milk thistle extract, scientists have now been able to overcome this poor bioavailability, by uniting silybin and phosphatidylcholine at the molecular level.
The end result is a newly created compound, where the phospholipid surrounds the silybin and acts as a protective shield. The absorption of silybin into the bloodstream, and consequently into the liver, is greatly increased thereby.
Due to this unique compound, up to 10 times more of the active substance silybin does in fact reach the bloodstream compared with conventional standardised 80% milk thistle extract - and that is scientifically proven.
Research shows that silybin assists the health of the liver, combats free radicals, promotes the production of glutathione and stimulates protein synthesis in the liver cells.
Phosphatidylcholine supports the liver and the general health by promoting healthy enzyme, antioxidation and lipometabolism activities, and also ensures the rapid functional and structural reorganisation of liver cells.
