Organic Milk Thistle Benefits
Milk Thistle is considered by many herbalists to be the primary herb for liver health. The active components in Milk Thistle are its flavonoids collectively called silymarin; and the majority of Milk Thistle-related research has been conducted on this component. Silymarin has long been recognized for its ability to promote healthy liver function in a variety of circumstances. Genceutic Naturals Milke Thisle uses certified organic sources of Milk Thisle, naturally containing a full spectrum of a full spectrum of flavonolignan compounds: Silymarin [Silibinin (Silybin A & Silybin B), Silychristin, and Silydianin], dehydrosilybin, 3-deoxysilichristin, deoxysilydianin (silymonin), siliandrin, silibinome, silyhermin and neosilyhermin.
Traditionally it has been used as a digestive aid , and the internationally respected Commission E Monographs approved the internal use of milk thistle for dyspeptic complaints (e.g., upset stomach or indigestion). This effect may be due to in increase in bile flow. Furthermore, has a liver protective effect against damaging agents and toxins. One of the primary protective effects of silymarin is attributed to its antioxidant and free radicals scavenging properties. Milk thistle also provides liver protection by helping to stabilize liver cell membranes in such a way as to prevent the penetration of the liver by toxins into interior of the cell. In addition, Research shows that silimarin increases glutathione levels in the liver and protects against glutathione depletion. This is important because glutathione plays a major role in the livers detoxification function, helping to shuttle toxins out of the body. This is a significant contribution by Milk Thistle in supporting detoxification by the liver.
Milk Thistle also increases the regenerative ability of the liver and the formation of new liver cells. Further studies concluded that other actions of silymarin include preventing the recirculation of toxins and regeneration of damaged liver cells. Other studies indicate the silymarin in milk thistle can support healthy cell division and replication, and data suggests that milk thistle may prevent liver damage from some liver poisoning medications.
