Blackmores Milk Thistle is traditionally used as a liver tonic. It provides the equivalent of 7 g of milk thistle, standardized to contain 84 mg of flavanolignans in each tablet. This product is ideal for people wishing to promote liver health.
- The major action of milk thistle is on the liver. The major functions of the liver include the production of bile, filtration of the blood and removal of bacteria, and the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, fats and many other compounds used by the body. It also metabolizes drugs and detoxifies numerous ingested substances such as alcohol and nicotine, as well as toxins produced by the body.
- Milk thistle supports normal liver function and has a protective effect on cell membranes due to its strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging action, due to the action of the active constituents in milk thistle which are a complex of flavanolignans collectively called silymarin.
- Silymarin can inhibit the factors that can cause liver damage, as well as stimulating the replacement of old and damaged cells with new liver cells.
- Silymarin increases the capacity of the liver to detoxify, by increasing glutathione levels in the liver. Glutathione, an important antioxidant compound, is responsible for detoxifying a wide range of drugs, hormones and chemicals in the liver.
