What it Does/How it Works:
Milk Thistle has been used by Europeans for over 2000 years. In the First Century A.D. Pliny the Elder used the name “sillybum” for this medicine, which is a time tested remedy for liver disorders. Now with modern technology it is stronger than ever.
Silymarin is a bioflavinoid complex found in milk thistle seeds, which 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.
Siliphos is an advanced phytosome product. Phytosomes are a patented process whereby herbal extracts, in this case silybin, are bonded to phosphatidyl choline. Phytosomes have much higher absorption rates to the liver. Different studies have shown siliphos to be 7 to 10 times more bioavailable than standardized silymarin extracts.
Milk thistle extracts both detoxify liver cells and speed the regeneration of hepatocytes (liver cells). 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 very useful in the treatment of Hepatitis C.
