Milk Thistle is a dietary supplement formulated to promote liver health, support anti-alcoholism activity, and promote healthy lipid and fat levels. Milk Thistle is available in liquid form from Natura-Genics®.
Milk thistle is native to Europe and has distinctive purple flowers and white veins. Milk thistle extract, derived from the plant, is believed to have antioxidant, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties due to the high amount of silymarin found in it.
Benefits of Milk Thistle
• Promotes Liver Health
Milk thistle is traditionally known to promote liver-protecting effects. It is regularly used as a complementary therapy to assist in the treatment of liver diseases. Some studies suggest that it may promote reduced liver inflammation and liver damage in individuals with liver disease. The antioxidant properties of milk thistle also promote liver-protecting effects. Milk thistle is thought to support reduced damage to the liver caused by free radicals, which are produced when the liver metabolizes toxic substances.
• Supports Anti-Alcoholism Activity
Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to alcohol-related liver diseases such as fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis, and alcohol-related cirrhosis. In the early stages, some liver damage caused by alcohol may be reversed with the appropriate steps. Some studies have found that milk thistle promotes a healthy liver and may assist, to a certain extent, in the reversal of some damage caused by alcohol.
• Promotes Healthy Lipid & Fat Levels
Some studies have found that milk thistle may have the ability to promote lower levels of lipids and fats in the body such as cholesterol. High levels of “bad” cholesterol can lead to heart health complications. The active compound in milk thistle, silybin, may promote significantly reduced total blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels according to some research.
