Milk thistle is well known in the herbal medical community for its liver health abilities. The liver and the kidneys share a huge responsibility in detoxifying the body. And our reliance on these organs increases due to an overabundance of toxins we are exposed to—from what we ingest to the air that we breathe. Milk thistle helps to protect the liver from toxins and aids in the organ’s detoxification process. Additionally, milk thistle helps to regenerate new liver cells.*
Silymarin is an active compound in milk thistle. This natural compound acts as a very powerful detoxifying agent and boosts the activity of two of the body’s super antioxidants—glutathione and super oxide dismutase (SOD). Silymarin enhances liver cell regeneration and helps to counteract the effects of poisons on the liver. When this compound is concentrated in the kidneys, it promotes new kidney cell production and protects the kidneys from harmful chemicals used in drug therapies.*
Milk thistle increases bile production, which helps to protect the intestinal lining and relieves intestinal inflammation. It also promotes general gastrointestinal health, which is highly important since immune response relies greatly on the health of the GI tract.*
