Milk Thistle – The Liver Protector
Milk thistle is composed of a flavonoid, Silymarin responsible for its beneficial effects, including hepatoprotectant, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory & anti-viral properties. The active components of Milk thistle seed include: Silibinin, Silicristin, Silidianin. Out of all the three, Silibinin is the most active constituent which offers the maximum benefits. Silymarin acts as a powerful antioxidant which helps in defending against the free radicals. It elevates the glutathione levels by 40% which assists in improving the antioxidant power. Silymarin is highly useful in the treatment of liver disorders such as alcoholic liver disease, toxin-induced liver injuries, fatty liver, jaundice as well as acute and chronic viral hepatitis.
- Also, Milk thistle is constituted with potential anti-cancer & anti-diabetes benefits and promotes heart, kidney & brain health.
- Milk thistle acts as a guard for liver cells and checks them from solidifying into rubbery, muscle-like cells. This is very important for neutralizing fibrosis, which is the initial phase of advance liver damage.
- It is known to block certain enzymes, like COX, NFkB and 5-LOX, which are in charge for hazardous cytokine formation. In addition, thistle heightens the liver’s capacity to manufacture new proteins for mending the existing damage.
- Milk thistle also inhibits the Phase-I liver enzymes. These enzymes trigger the release of toxins in the body and helps in converting them into oxidative substances, making it tough for the liver to drive out from the body system.
