Holista Milk Thistle:

Even now, your liver is hard at work filtering toxins out of your body, a process in which the liver itself can become collateral damage. With a 2,000-year history as a traditional herbal remedy, Milk Thistle provides potent herbal support to help protect and support the liver. Holista® Milk Thistle is concentrated and standardized to 60% silymarin for maximum benefits.

Traditional Herbal Medicine  to protect the Liver: A wide array of health benefits

Milk Thistle is one of the most trusted and well-researched herbs for liver support on the market. Here are a few of the ways it promotes whole body health:

  • Protects the liver from damage
  • Supports the liver?s natural detoxification mechanisms
  • Provides antioxidant support

Naturally supports detoxification:

The liver is a highly specialized organ that is designed to deal with metabolic waste—the normal byproducts of your body’s functions—but even this sophisticated filtration system needs a hand sometimes. Because toxins are constantly cycling through the liver before being excreted, they can cause damage to the liver itself. Also, excessive environmental toxins can overburden the liver, impairing its function and causing damage.

Milk Thistle is a gentle, safe, yet effective way to support and protect the liver. The antioxidants in Milk Thistle seed help support the liver as it neutralizes toxins that can damage tissues while the active compound, silymarin, protects the liver in order to allow for cellular renewal.  Studies show that silymarin may help protect the structural integrity of cellular membranes against toxic exposure. Research supports the use of Milk Thistle to improve liver health, helping restore liver function after damage caused by alcohol or toxic exposure.

Kick starts digestion:

Your liver doesn’t just process nutrients after they’ve been digested; it actually plays a big role in digestion itself. The liver produces bile—up to a litre a day—which helps break down fats so your body can absorb them. Because bile helps with the absorption of fats, it can help make fat-soluble nutrient such as vitamins A, D, E, and K more bioavailable. The body also uses bile as a handy way to excrete certain metabolic wastes, such as bilirubin, and as a defense mechanism to destroy bacteria in foods.

When the liver is properly supported, it is better able to produce bile, improving your body’s ability to digest fat and excrete toxins. Keeping bile flowing freely also contributes to gallbladder health.

Supplies antioxidants necessary for optimal health:

Silymarin has 10 times the antioxidant power of vitamin E. It reduces inflammation and helps the body make the antioxidant glutathione, boosting production by 35%. Glutathione is the body’s most powerful weapon against toxic damage, an antioxidant that scoops up free radicals before they cause damage, and helps convert difficult to excrete fat soluble toxins into easily disposed of water soluble compounds. Your body makes glutathione, but poor diet, stress, aging, infections, medications, and environmental toxins can lead to serious depletion.

By keeping toxins and inflammation in check, the liver plays an important role in immunity. Not only that, but white blood cells need glutathione to function. Silymarin also has its own antioxidant actions, and researchers call it “a powerful antioxidant herbal drug which can protect biological systems against the oxidative stress,” and it may be used in the prevention of free radical-related diseases.
