Protecting your liver is beneficial for overall health and vitality of the body. Milk thistle extract is one of nature's most potent weapons to support liver health. It's bioactive compounds are known to stabilize cell membranes, assist in detoxification activities and neutralize a wide range of free radicals.
Until recently, however, the technology did not exist to harness the plants full benefits. The problem had to deal with a major component of milk thistle, called silybin, which does not dissolve well in water. This makes it difficult for your body to absorb all of it. Scientists have developed a solution to overcome silybin's poor bioavailability by mixing it with a nutrient called phosphatidylcholine.

Phosphatidylcholine is an ideal "carrier molecule" for silibin and facilitates its transport across the intestinal lining into the bloodstream. The silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex is absorbed much better than silibin aloine and its bioavailability to the liver is 10-fold greater.
This novel milk thistle extract with phosphatidylcholine contains standardised concentrations of silybin and isosilybin A and B which are typically not found in other milk thistle extracts.
