Milk Thistle

 


Description


Nature’s Herbs Milk Thistle Power features certified potency milk thistle seed extract, artichoke and turmeric root. This proprietary blend of botanicals synergistically promotes liver and GI health, improves digestion and eliminates toxins from the body. Milk Thistle Power features one of the highest concentrations of liver supporting nutrients available.

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) enhances the liver’s natural ability to eliminate toxins and harmful free radicals (unstable molecules that damage cells). This medicinal herb contains a flavolignan complex called silymarin. Silymarin is a potent antioxidant that blocks damaging free-radical activity in the liver. Milk thistle helps protect liver cells by preventing the entrance of harmful toxins and removing toxins from liver cells.
Artichoke extract (Cynara scolymus) is derived from the leaves of the artichoke plant. The leaves contain medicinally active flavonoids (such as luteolin) and caffeolyquinic acids (including cynarin). Clinical research has confirmed that caffeolyquinic acids stimulate the flow of bile from the liver and gall bladder, and improve digestion. Bile plays as important role in digestion. Studies also suggest that the flavonoids in artichoke leaves may prevent cholesterol production and lower high cholesterol levels.

The Indian spice, turmeric (Curcuma longa), is known to have anti-inflammatory, antitumor and antioxidant effects. In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric is used to treat numerous medical complaints including intestinal problems. One double blind study suggests that turmeric helps improve indigestion. Another study, published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, reports that turmeric may help prevent precancerous polyps in the intestines.
