Milk Thistle Supplements To Support Your Liver
- Jun 11, 2018 -

Milk ThistleMilk Thistle is the #1 recommended natural herb for liver health, confirmed by hundreds of clinical studies to protect the liver against virtually all types of damage. Many years of research shows the active flavanoid-lignan (flavanolignan) group of constituents, called silymarin, contained only in the seed shell has liver-protective and regenerative properties, as well as antioxidant effects. The liver protective effects were known and written about in ancient times, leading to the active chemical, pharmacological, and safety research beginning in Germany in the 1950s. Clinical use for a variety of liver ailments, such as hepatitis, has also prospered throughout many parts of the world. 

If you are going to purchase milk thistle, a standardized milk thistle is recommended so you are sure to get the same amount of the active, beneficial ingredient in each dose. Milk thistle can also be combined with additional herbs such as artichoke (shown to support liver and gall bladder function through the removal of toxins and maintaining healthy bile production) and turmeric (which can help protect the liver from damaging free radicals and promote a health inflammatory response) to provide even more liver protection and support than standardized milk thistle alone.

Standardized milk thistle is inexpensive and has some benefits, but has ONE major shortcoming – its active ingredients are not absorbed easily by the body. This would require you to ingest large amounts to experience beneficial effects, which is an impractical option. Through research, we have found a patented milk thistle formula that resolves this ONE issue. The patented formula is proven by science to be up to 10 times more absorbable and is found in Maximum Milk Thistle® and the more powerful version UltraThistle®.
