As a liver support and liver aid, milk thistle is a powerful detoxifier. It helps rebuild liver cells while removing toxins from the body that are processed through the liver. Milk thistle is effective at naturally reversing the harmful effects of alcohol consumption, pesticides in our food supply, heavy metals in our water supply, pollution in the air that we breathe in and even poisons!
The liver helps remove harmful substances from our blood, aids in hormone production, detoxifies the body, releases glucose into the bloodstream in order to give our body steady energy and releases bile into our small intestine so fat can be absorbed from foods.
For milk thistle to be effective, an adequate level of silymarin, the active compound, needs to be taken. Our capsules contain a concentrated extract of milk thistle standardised to 80% silymarin. This means for each tablet contains the equivalent of 8,000mg of milk thistle and a full 160mg of silymarin.
Milk thistle has been approved as a therapeutic treatment for various liver diseases, including fatty liver syndrome, damage from alcoholism, jaundice, psoriasis, hepatitis and others.
Suggested Usage : 1-2 tablets twice a day with a meal or as directed by your health professional.
