Milk Thistle has been used in Europe for thousands of years for the treatment of liver and digestion problems. Today Milk Thistle is primarily used to support liver health and function – this is critical because the liver serves to detoxify the body. Milk Thistle works to promote liver health through a flavonoid complex found in the seeds of the plant – the discovery of this complex can be traced to German researchers. This active ingredient complex is referred to as Silymarin and consists of silybin, silyduanin and silychristin.
When it comes to liver health, Silymarin increases the liver’s anti-oxidant enzyme levels, promotes higher levels of lipoxygenase – a compound that blocks damage to liver cells - and promotes regeneration of damaged liver cells. Studies done on Milk Thistle verify positive benefits on liver health, maintenance and function.
Not only does this potent trio of active compounds cleanse and maintain liver health but new research also shows benefits for other organs in the body. Silymarin has been shown to be a potent anit-oxidant that not only fights against free radicals but also increases the body’s levels of SOD – a major anti-oxidant enzyme. New evidence also suggests Silymarin has similar protective benefits to the kidneys as it does for the liver and may have positive implications on protein synthesis.
Milk Thistle by Jarrow Formulas is a 30:1 extract that has been standardized to contain 80% total flavonoids. Due to the fact that Silymarin has poor solubility in water and has an absorption rate of only about 50%, Jarrow Milk Thistle is ultra-concentrated to insure effective amounts of Silymarin is absorbed. Tests have indicated that it takes 15 grams of the crude herbal extract to supply 200-400 mg of Silymarin. Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle provides this amount in just 3 capsules.
