Description

Heaven & Earth’s Milk Thistle features maximum strength milk thistle, standardized for potency. Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a medicinal herb used for millennia as a liver tonic in the Mediterranean region. Today, milk thistle is used to promote liver health and remove toxins from the body. Milk thistle helps the liver generate new liver cells when damaged by alcoholism, liver problems, drugs, pollutants, and other health problems.

Milk thistle enhances the liver’s natural ability to eliminate toxins and harmful free radicals (unstable molecules that damage cells). Milk thistle contains a flavolignan complex called silymarin. Silymarin is a potent antioxidant that blocks damaging free-radical activity, particularly in the liver.

I remember this product because I bought one for my brother who has a liver problem, because of his excessive drinking, I told him to lessen his alcohol consumption and try this product. I searched the internet for a supplement for his problem and milk thistle is a recommended supplement for liver conditions. With his alcohol consumption and daily dose of this he is back to good health, this is of course with the consultation of doctors and regular checkup.
