Description

Silymarin, the main bioflavonoid complex found in milk thistle seeds, has been used to support gallbladder and liver function and to promote healthy detoxification function.

Clinical Applications

  • Supports Healthy Liver, Spleen and Kidney Function
  • Enhances Detoxification Pathways
  • Provides Liver Cell Antioxidant Protection
  • Supports Healthy Nerve Cell Function and Brain Health

Silymarin is a flavonoid compound derived from milk thistle that supports liver function and enhances detoxification pathways. It is also used to support the gallbladder, kidneys, and spleen. Silymarin prevents the depletion of the intracellular antioxidant, glutathione, within liver cells, thereby enhancing detoxification and protecting cells from free radical activity.

Due to its variety of functions, the Silymarin Forte formula makes a potent addition to any liver support and detoxification program. Silymarin has a well-established safety profile and a long history of medicinal use. The Silymarin Forte formula includes 200 mg milk thistle per capsule, standardized to 58% silymarin.

Suggested Use:

1 capsule three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.

Liver Support and Detoxification

Silymarin protects the liver through various functions: acting as an antioxidant; preventing lipid oxidation; balancing Phase I detoxification; enhancing glucuronidation, to help eliminate excess hormones; and preventing the depletion of glutathione. Silymarin also supports a normal inflammatory response by inhibiting leukotriene and prostaglandin synthesis, quieting immune mast cells and neutrophils, as well as increasing the production of cellular proteins that promote cell regeneration. Clinical studies have also demonstrated silymarin can also boost immune health.

Kidney Health

Silymarin has been reported to protect the health of kidneys from free radical stress caused by exposure to heavy metals. Pre-supplementation with silymarin was also found to significantly protect cells from free radical damage induced by toxins, in a dose-dependent manner. Dietary supplementation of silymarin has also been found to protect kidney function and promote a normal response to inflammation.

Nerve Cell Function and Brain Health

Animal research has demonstrated a significant reduction in levels of amyloid beta in the brain and improvement in behavior. In another study, silymarin was found to help counteract oxidative stress in animals to support blood sugar and nervous system health.
