How it works:
The main constituent of Milk Thistle appears to be the substance known as silymarin. This has the unique function of being able to act directly on the cells of the liver, producing a liver-protective effect.
Silymarin has been shown to be able to prevent liver cell damage, through stimulating the enzymatic function of liver cells and encouraging the regeneration of the liver.
All these factors are important in overall health, with the liver acting as the most important avenue for the elimination of toxins found within the body.
Medical opinion should be sought when acute or chronic liver conditions are present.
