What it Does/How it Works:
Milk Thistle has been used by Europeans for over 2000 years. In the first century AD, Pliny the Elder used the name Sillybum for this medicine.
Silymarin is a bioflavinoid complex found in milk thistle seeds. This is what is responsible for the medical benefit of this plant. Silymarin is composed of three parts; silicristin, silybin, and silidianin. Silybin is the most active of these compounds.
Milk Thistle is a time tested remedy for liver disorders. Now with modern technology it is stronger than ever.
Milk Thistle Extracts both detoxify hepatocytes (liver cells) and speeds their regeneration. This is accomplished by increasing the synthesis of RNA through activating nucleorlar polymerase 1, which accelerates cell regeneration and protein synthesis.
Hepatitis C is a disease whereby hepatocytes are damaged by reactive oxygen species. Milk Thistle Extracts are powerful anti-oxidants, and therefore valuable in the treatment of Hepatitis C.
