Milk thistle, or Silybum marianum, has been utilized worldwide for over 2,000 years for its remarkable ability to support the liver and to aid healthy digestive function.*
Milk thistle contains three phytonutrients (silybin, silydianin, and silychristin) together known as silymarin. Silymarin may prevent the absorption of compounds into the liver’s cells. It can support healthy digestive function and bile flow, and can help protect the body’s stores of glutathione, our primary endogenous antioxidant.*
Because the key constituent of silymarin, silybin, has poor bioavailability in a typical oral formulation, Dr. Christopher Shade, Ph.D., developed nanoemulsified Milk Thistle. The extract is encapsulated in tiny, highly absorbable liposomes. The result is a formula with rapid uptake and optimal cellular delivery.
