Milk Thistle

Powerful Adaptogen

Milk Thistle is derived from the milk thistle plant, also known as Silybum marianum. The active ingredients in milk thistle are a group of plant compounds collectively known as silymarin. Studies show silymarin increases glutathione levels.  Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in cells. It’s comprised largely of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. Glutathione levels in the body may be reduced by a number of factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress. Its levels also decline with age. Boosting glutathione provides many health benefits, including reduction of oxidative stress. Silymarin has been used to treat alcoholic liver disease, acute and chronic viral hepatitis and toxin-induced liver diseases. Silybum has powerfully protective and regenerative benefits on liver cells. The liver is implicated in many processes, and its failure induces severe consequences for metabolism, immune response, detoxification and antimicrobial defenses. Milk Thistle is an incredible liver detox. It helps cleanse the liver from previous damage due to pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals and environmental toxins. The milk thistle plant has been used for over 2,000 years. Greek physician and botanist Dioscorides described milk thistle’s healing properties back in the year 40 A.D.
