Atlas World Milk Thistle 80% Silymarin - 180 Capsules
Atlas World Milk Thistle 80% Silymarin is comprised of compounds, called silymarin, which research indicates have antihepatotoxic (liver protectant) properties. Silymarin consists of numerous flavonolignans, including silybin, isosilybin, dehydrosilybin, silydianin and silychristin. Both silymarin and silybin function as antioxidants, protecting cell membranes from free-radical-mediated oxidative damage. In addition, these compounds protect red blood cell membranes against lipid peroxidation and hemolysis (breaking down of the red blood cells) caused by certain red blood cell poisons. In fact, numerous studies conducted on silymarin indicates that it not only protects liver cells from toxic substances, but that it also stimulates protein synthesis to accelerate the regeneration and production of liver cells. Moreover, Milk Thistle may increase the effectiveness of Glutathione, a potent antioxidant in the liver.
