  • Silymarin in Milk Thistle is a powerful liver-protective compound. It promotes healthy liver detox to get rid of potentially harmful substances that may produce liver damage like alcohol and drugs like acetaminophen, aspirin, and isoniazid. There are also studies claiming that Silymarin benefits healthy liver cell production and normal repair of pre-existing liver damage like in cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, and hepatitis.
  • Milk Thistle Extract also protects the kidneys and gallbladder against toxins that enter the body. Thus, Silymarin aids in the maintenance of optimum gallbladder and kidney health.
  • Silymarin itself is a potent antioxidant. Antioxidants are beneficial compounds that protect the cells against free radicals that induce oxidative stress, a primary cause of premature ageing. Milk Thistle supplements are also known to support healthy production of glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are known to prevent the diseases associated with ageing, healthy energy levels, maintain smooth and younger looking skin, and sustain youthful vitality.
  • Milk Thistle supplements can help stabilise blood sugar in people with diabetes. Chronic liver disease increases the risk of developing insulin resistant diabetes because the liver can’t respond to insulin well. Silymarin in Milk Thistle helps the liver to handle increased insulin, the hormone responsible for transporting glucose into the muscles and fatty acids to fat cells.
  • By helping stimulate normal bile production, Milk Thistle supplements support healthy recovery from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s disease. Bile is responsible for eliminating testosterone by-products that causes discomforts in the colon.

Milk Thistle is a flowering herb native in Europe with long history of supporting kidney, gallbladder, and most of all, liver health. This member of the daisy family is thought to stimulate the flow of bile from the gallbladder. Bile is the fluid produced by the liver used in the digestion and absorption of fats in the intestines. The most active ingredient of Milk Thistle is called Silymarin, which acts as an effective liver aide in carrying out its functions on detoxification. Silymarin helps the liver to eliminate toxins that enters the body from foods, drinks, and drugs. It also works to protect the cells from free-radical damage as a powerful antioxidant. Studies on silymarin suggest that it helps regulate the production of new liver cells and encourage normal repair of existing liver damage. Nature’s Way Milk Thistle is standardised to contain 80% silymarin for maximum silymarin benefits.
