milk-thistle

Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) detoxifies synthetic chemicals that find their way into our bodies from heavy metals. Itis used as a treatment for liver disease, fatty liver, cirrhosis, liver poisoning and viral hepatitis. It has also been shown to protect the liver against over use of medications.

Milk Thistle repairs cells and encourages cell growth. The active ingredient, or liver-protecting compound in Milk Thistle is known as silymarin. This substance consists of a group of compounds called flavonolignans, helps repair liver cells damaged by toxic substances by stimulating protein synthesis. By changing the outside layer of liver cells, it also prevents certain toxins from getting inside. Silymarin also seems to encourage liver cell growth. It can reduce inflammation and has potent antioxidant effects. Antioxidants are thought to protect body cells from damage caused by a chemical process called oxidation. Milk Thistle naturally contains about 70 - 80% Silymarin (and many other constituents thought to work in harmony).

In animal studies, Milk Thistle produced reductions in total cholesterol. This herb is a must for cleansing and for anyone with any sort of liver dysfunction or exposure to toxins.
