Product Description
Biotanica, Milk Thistle, Premium Silymarin Extract - liver & kidney health - healthy blood pressure - blood sugar support - brain function.*

Our Premium Milk Thistle supplement is standardized to 80% Silymarin extract. Milk Thistle is a plant named after the white veins that usually rest on its large prickly leaves.

Milk Thistle is a native Mediterranean plant and is also referred to as Mary thistle and holy thistle [1]. The herb can also be found in certain parts of California. One of the active ingredients in this herb is Silymarin. Silymarin is a flavonoid that is believed to possess antioxidant properties and has been used for over 2,000 years to support a healthy liver for both men and women [1]. In more recent times, the herb and its extract have gained global recognition due to its numerous health benefits. *
Product Benefits
This herb has proven to be an ultimate super herb due to its health benefits. We will introduce you to the benefits and the reasoning behind consuming the Milk Thistle 80% Extract. These possible health benefits include antixodiant support, liver health, blood sugar management, youthful vigor, healthy cholesterol and brain health. *
  • Healthy Cell Replication. Milk Thistle extract is a source of silymarin. This active ingredient is composed of compounds known as flavonolignans [3]. By nature, silymarin is an antioxidant. This makes it the perfect tool for boosting the immune system, supporting DNA damage, as well as supporting damaged cell growth. Researchers at the University of Minnesota reviewed numerous studies that touched on the relationship between this extract and unhealthy cells and their finds were amazing. They discovered that there was strong preclinical evidence for silymarin's hepatoprotective and anticarcinogenic effects [2][3]. This included the support of healthy cell growth in the prostate, skin, cervical and breast cells. The silymarin molecules present in Milk Thistle extract are of a type that is known as silybin [2]. This is an antioxidant that stimulates protein synthesis and changes the external appearance of cells. By doing this, the cells are protected from damage and mutation. It also ensures that toxins do affect the healthier parts of our body's cells. *
  • Liver Health. Milk Thistle and its extract have proven to have fibrogenic managing properties in addition to the ability to help with liver cell regeneration [1]. Our extract may help rebuild liver cells and at the same time, remove toxins from the body that are usually processed in the liver. The extract will also come in handy to support a healthy liver that was once affected by active alcohol consumption, pesticides in our food, the presence of heavy metals in water as well as eliminate the effects of air pollution. For example, the Milk Thistle extract produced a small increase in glutathione and a decrease in lipid peroxidation in peripheral blood cells in patients with poor alcohol liver support [1]. In animals, the extract was able to support liver health caused by Tylenol (acetaminophen), carbon tetrachloride, radiation, iron overload, phenylhydrazine, alcohol, cold ischemia and Amanita phalloides [1]. This proves that this super herb is a perfect solution for managing different liver conditions. The liver is an essential organ since it is responsible for the detoxifying functions in our body. Since the condition of our blood is reliant on the liver, the liver should be kept efficient by all means. *
  • Blood Sugar. Compelling research conducted by the National Institute of Health states that use of the Milk Thistle extract may help support the management of healthy blood sugar levels. The idea behind this is that silymarin may help control the body's glycemic index (blood sugar levels) [4]. A study conducted on mice in 2016 showed that the Milk Thistle extract had positive effects on InsuIin levels [4][5]. People with low blood sugar will always have problems related to InsuIin-resistance. However, the use of our extract may help keep your InsuIin levels in check. *
  • Anti-Aging Effects. The anti-oxidant properties in the Milk Thistle extract will help support free radical damage in the body. This will assist the body in getting rid of pollutants from the blood and various systems such as the digestive system [6] and these actions may support healthy aging. The protective qualities of this extract on the skin will also ensure that healthy skin, wrinkles, discoloration and dark spots are effectively managed. At the same time, the antioxidant properties of this extract will come in handy in the maintenance of healthy eyes, joints and muscles [7]. *
  • Healthy Cholesterol Levels. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Milk Thistle extract has powerful pro-calming properties in body cells [8]. This helps to manage healthy cholesterol levels through the cleaning of blood and the support of oxidative stress within the arteries. A study conducted on people with low blood sugar and stated that cholesterol levels were supported in people taking Milk Thistle [8]. *
  • Brain health. This extract possesses neuroprotective properties [10]. Early research suggests that consumption of the extract is beneficial for brain cognition and memory health. Animal studies conducted also suggest that silymarin may suppress the formation of amyloid beta-protein (a toxic protein linked to Alzheimer's), thereby helping to support brain health [9][10]. *

The recommended dosage for this extract is 500 mg for up to three times daily.
