Milk Thistle (250mg) Overview
Milk Thistle: “Armor For Your Liver”
Milk thistle extract supports normal liver function by protecting this vital organ from damage, stress and harmful substances. The main constituent of milk thistle is a flavonoid called silymarin, which has been shown to display antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown that when taken daily, the silymarin found in milk thistle improves liver function and supports healthy liver values. There have also been studies in which milk thistle supplementation has been observed to increase the survival rate of those suffering from severe liver-damaging diseases such as cirrhosis, alcoholism and hepatitis. Milk thistle is currently being investigated for cholesterol control and cancer prevention.*
Who uses Milk Thistle?
Anyone looking to maintain a healthy, functioning liver can benefit by supplementing his or her diet with milk thistle. Taking milk thistle is a great way to hedge against the daily toxins that creep into your body from the processed lifestyle that we’re all exposed to. These toxins can add up over the years and really take a toll on your liver. So be sure and take extra care of your liver, after all, you only have one!*
Anybody that is living a lifestyle that puts his or her liver under increased stress can also greatly benefit by supplementing with milk thistle. If you frequently consume a lot of alcohol, milk thistle assists your liver with the removal of toxins and other by-products of alcohol consumption. Bodybuilders taking testosterone support supplements or that are on high protein diets can also mitigate liver degradation by taking milk thistle. If you fall into this category, think of milk thistle as a means of harm reduction. It doesn’t give you the right to abuse your liver, but it sure helps when you do.
