Milk Thistle Extract Botanical Liver Support
Botanical Support for the Liver
Guess what. Nutrients cannot be used by the body in their food formthey must first be converted by the liver to their active coenzyme form. Yes, its your liver that determines what your body will use for fuel. For energy. Think of your liver as a kind of carburetor that prepares and cleanses the bodys fuel. Its charged with delivering good, clean, healthy fuel to your bodys myriad engines.
The livers other primary function is cleansing the body of toxins, a vital necessity in todays over-processed, polluted world. Good, clean nutritious fuel...or unhealthy, toxic fuel. As your liver perform. Its that simple.
Your liver must handle everything that your body comes into contact with, via digestion, detoxification, blood sugar regulation and fat metabolism. It has to deal with everything you eat, drink and breathe. Twenty-four hours a day. Seven days a week. Its a mammoth job. And naturally, your liver could use a little help.
Enter Full Spectrum Silymarin 80.
Supports and Promotes Natural Liver Function
Silymarin is a group of biologically active constituents of milk thistle, an herb with a 2,000-year history of folk usage. Native to the Mediterranean, it is found widely throughout Europe and the United States. This tall plant with a purple flowering head and spiny, green leaves is mottled with streaks of white. The white streaks are said to have been caused by a drop of Mother Marys milk. Its Latin name (Silybum marianum) reflects this symbolic association.
Milk thistle has been used by many notable herbalists in the past, from Roman naturalist Pliny (who said it was excellent for carrying off the bile, giving an early clue to its effect on the liver) to Hildegarde of Bingen, the famous 12th-century abbess. In more recent times, it was used by the Eclectic botanical physicians here in the United States. Traditionally used as a food, it is currently used widely in Europe.
The most active group of constituents in milk thistle is the flavonoid complex known as silymarin. Silymarin consists of the flavolignans: silybin, silydianin and silychristin. The silymarin flavonoid concentration is highest in the oily, small, hard seeds of the plant and typically found in concentrations of 4-6%. Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Silymarin 80 is standardized to 80% silymarin content, the same amount utilized in most modern studies.
Silymarins main action is on the liver, the complex organ involved in more than 500 crucial body functions. Studies have shown that silymarin is absorbed when given orally. In vitro studies with silymarin demonstrated antioxidant activity and the ability to inhibit lipid peroxidation of cellular membranes. In addition, silybin helps control histamine release from white blood cells. Silymarin also helps regulate the balance of prostaglandins in the liver. Prostaglandins are hormonelike molecules that regulate a variety of bodily functions.
In todays world, the liver is constantly challenged by inhaled chemicals and car exhaust, ingested pesticides, artificially manufactured foods, toxin exposure, alcohol, sedentary lifestyle, prescription and OTC drugs, birth control pills, smoking, junk food and low-fiber, high-calorie foods. The list goes on, and the need for liver support is substantial.
Manufactured without the use of toxic solvents, Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Silymarin 80 delivers 210 mg of milk thistle seed extract, including 168 mg of silymarin. The benefits of silymarin have been time-tested by traditional cultures and studied bymodern clinical research. To maintain vital liver function, Full Spectrum Silymarin 80 is a natural and supportive step for the body to take.
Planetary Herbals Full Spectrum Silymarin 80 is a highly concentrated extract of milk thistle seeds (Silybum marianum) that modern research has shown to support many aspects of a healthy liver. This extract delivers a total of 168 mg of silymarin, which is a mixture of flavanolignans including silybin, silydianin and silychristin, and matches the constituent profile of extracts used in human research studies. Extra milk thistle seeds are added to ensure the presence of important secondary compounds.
