About Milk Thistle
The liver carries out many functions, including detoxification and blood purification, it provides your body with energy, aids with digestion, helps clot the blood, regulates the balance of hormones. Since the average person is exposed daily to various forms of toxins present in our food, air, water, household products, etc., the importance of this vital organ is not to be overlooked. In fact, good health is impossible without the proper functioning of the liver. Unfortunately, we tend to ignore the health of this resilient organ until something goes wrong. However, the liver has an amazing ability to regenerate itself, if given the chance.
Certain nutrients and botanicals have demonstrated their ability to help lessen the damaging effects of environmental contaminants and stressors that you encounter every day, providing your liver the ongoing support it may need. Used for over 2,000 years, Milk thistle, also known as Silybum marianum, has high amounts of silymarin, believed to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and hepatoprotective properties. It increases bile production, supports liver detoxification and toxin filtration. Artichoke extract is used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve digestive disturbances and increase bile flow, providing aid to the digestive process, supporting liver cell function and blood flow. Picrorhiza is another botanical with hepatoprotective properties that also aids digestion. Boldo and Dandelion root soothe digestive upset. In addition, Dandelion's natural diuretic effect allows the body to eliminate toxins more quickly.
Specific vitamins and amino acids play a major role in liver detoxification processes as well. Two distinct detoxification phases in the liver work together to eliminate any toxic substances. The first phase is about breaking things down to make them more excretable. The second phase of detoxification is about elimination. B-vitamins such as vitamin B6, B12 and folate are a key part of both phases of liver detoxification. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid essential for production of glutathione, a strong antioxidant, especially active in phase II detox pathways in the liver. NAC improves our antioxidant status assuring cellular protection, resilience, and repair.
