Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is an herb that is well documented in early traditional herbal medicine. Silymarin, an extract of milk thistle, is composed of a family of flavonoids, primarily Silybin with smaller amounts of Silydianin and Silychristin. Milk thistle has been shown to increase the liver?s content of glutathione. Studies abroad and in the U.S. have indicated that the constituents in Silymarin may help to support healthy liver function. This vegetarian formula also includes extracts of Artichoke & Dandelion for additional support.

Milk thistle is a flowering herb that has been used by herbalists for hundreds of years. Silymarin, which is extracted from its seeds, is the active part of the herb.
Proper liver health is vital for human beings. The liver is the largest gland in the body. It plays a key role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body including glycogen storage, plasma protein synthesis, and drug detoxification. The liver also produces bile, which is critical for proper digestion.
Milk thistle appears to concentrate its main action in the liver. It is well recognized for being a hepatoprotectant (liver protecting agent) and has been shown to increase the liver?s content of glutathione. Glutathione is a cellular antioxidant that helps to reduce the damaging effect of free radicals and supports healthy detoxification processes.
This unique vegetarian formula also contains Artichoke and Dandelion extracts, both known for their synergistic benefits.
Few side effects are reported when Silymarin is used within the recommended dose ranges. Rare cases of stomach upset, mild laxative effect, itching and headache have been described. Significant interactions between milk thistle (Silymarin) and medications or other herbal remedies are largely unknown at normal levels of intake.
