Milk Thistle has potent antioxidant, liver-boosting, and overall health boosting effects, and these Extract Tablets are the strongest and most convenient Milk Thistle product available on the planet. Each tablet contains 200 mg of an extract which contains 80% Silymarin, the primary active compound in Milk Thistle. Since this herb naturally contains 4-5% Silymarin, that means each one of these extract tablets is equivalent to roughly 3,200 mg of Milk Thistle.
Milk Thistle, which has the scientific name Silybum Marianum, is an exotic purple flower that originates from the Mediterranean region of Europe as well as the Middle East, but due to its highly beneficial properties, ancient peoples transported this plant across the globe and now it grows prolifically across North America, South America, and Australia.
This herb has highly complex pharmacology. The primary active compound Silymarin is in-fact a complex mixture of Polyphenolic molecules including Silybin A, Silybin B, Ososilybin A, Isosilybin B, Silychristin, Isosilychristin, Silydiani, and Taxifolin. Collectively, these molecules have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and even anti-viral effects.
Most of the scientific research surrounding this herb has focused on its potential to protect the liver, and although more research needs to be done, the current theory is that this herb reduces damage to the liver caused by free radicals, with free radicals being molecules that are produced when the liver metabolizes toxic substances. Basically, it is theorized that this herb helps to reduce the damage caused to the liver by toxic substances, and in-fact this herb may even repair pre-existing damage as well.
Beyond that, due to the strong antioxidant properties of this herb, it has general health boosting effects for all parts of the body.
Overall, Milk Thistle is a must-have for your ethnobotanical arsenal, since it is one of the most potent health boosting herbs in existence.
