Health benefits at a glance:
Silymarin is the major active compound from milk thistle extract ( Silybum marianum ), a member of the Compositae or daisy family.
It's considered a flavonolignan mixture, a unique type of bioflavonoid, and an antioxidant that fights against damaging free radicals ― and in this way offers powerful antioxidant support for the liver.
Scientific studies show that oral supplementation with silymarin can help support liver function and promote healthy liver cells. Silymarin has been shown to combat lipid peroxidation in the liver.
Why it works:
The liver is a large organ that performs many of your body’s vital functions and keeps it clean of harmful substances.
It's also responsible for processing vitamins and nutrients into a form that can be used by the body, recycling compounds (such as iron) from red blood cells, synthesizing plasma proteins, producing important hormones, secreting bile, and converting sugars into glycogen.
The liver is also responsible for the body’s natural detoxification processes.
Modern living imposes a heavy load on the liver. Thus, maintaining its health becomes more crucial than ever. In Europe and Asia, herbal liver tonics have been in common use for centuries.
Being validated through research, the benefits of these herbs contain compounds that assist in antioxidant activities, in stabilizing cell membrane, enhancing bile secretion. Protecting your liver is beneficial for the overall health and vitality of the body.
Life Extension's Silymarin is formulated with the same ingredients as clinical studies to help support healthy liver function.
