Health Benefits at a Glance:
Milk thistle, or Silybum marianum, has been utilized worldwide for over 2,000 years for its remarkable ability to protect and support the liver and can aid healthy digestive function.
Why it Works:
Milk thistle contains three phytonutrients (silybin, silydianin, and silychristin) together known as silymarin. Silymarin may prevent the absorption of toxins into the liver’s cells. It can support healthy digestive function and bile flow, thereby supporting gut health. It can help protect the body’s stores of glutathione, our primary endogenous antioxidant which fights free radicals.
The Science Behind the Product:
Because the key constituent of silymarin, silybin, has poor bioavailability in a typical oral formulation, Dr. Christopher Shade, Ph.D., developed our nanoemulsified Milk Thistle. The extract is encapsulated in tiny, highly absorbable liposomes. The result is a formula with rapid uptake and optimal cellular delivery which supports glutathione levels and supports gut health by supporting a healthy digestion and bile flow.
