Silymarin is a flavonoid compound derived from milk thistle that supports liver function and enhances detoxification pathways. It is also used to support the gallbladder, kidneys, and spleen. Silymarin prevents the depletion of the intracellular antioxidant, glutathione, within liver cells, thereby enhancing detoxification and protecting cells from free radical activity.
Due to its variety of functions, the Silymarin Forte formula makes a potent addition to any liver support and detoxification program. Silymarin has a well-established safety profile and a long history of medicinal use. The Silymarin Forte formula includes 200 mg milk thistle per capsule, standardized to 80% silymarin.
1 capsule three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional
The main bioflavonoid complex found in milk thistle seeds, silymarin has been widespread in use for thousands of years to improve bile transport and support the liver, spleen and kidneys. It enhances liver cell detoxification by preventing the depletion of glutathione and by binding to liver cells, protecting them from exposure to chemicals and toxins. Silymarin is also able to increase unique protein synthesis within cells that protect them from free radical damage.
