Milk Thistle, one of the most ancient natural medicines, is grown in Europe, traditionally used for its ability to help detoxify the liver, stimulate the production of new cells in the liver, to treat gall stones, disorders of the spleen and gall bladder, to promote the flow of bile, promote the healing of skin diseases related to liver function, and for other disorders such as varicose veins, bronchitis, and digestive disorders. Milk thistle contains flavonols and Silymarin. These act as free radical scavengers. Silymarin protects cell membranes from free-radical oxidative damage. This is known as lipid peroxidation. Most liver toxins produce damaging effects through free radical mechanisms. Silymarin protects the liver against the effects of toxins and heavy metal. Silymarin protects red blood cell membranes against the break down of red blood cells which are caused by certain red blood cell poisons.
If you are taking Milk Thistle to address problems of alcohol-related liver problems, give it at least 8 weeks before determining its usefulness for you. If you are taking IP-6 with MILK THISTLE to detoxify or as a preventative, you may notice results more quickly. Milk Thistle may cause loose bowels for the first 2-3 days because of Gallbladder stimulation, but this will subside. Milk thistle has been used as a folk remedy for centuries in Europe for liver complaints. Recent research demonstrates that Milk Thistle extract that is standardized protects against some liver toxins through the action of its liver protecting (antihepatotoxic) compound, known as silymarin. Results suggest that silymarin protects liver cells by preventing the actions of toxic substances and it also stimulates protein synthesis to accelerate regeneration and production of liver cells. Silymarin has a restorative effect on the liver, which is a very important detoxifying organ and is involved in most bodily functions. Detoxifying and restoring liver function is powerful and considered important for those with exposure to toxins.
