Life Extension Milk Thistle: Milk thistle extract has long been valued for its role in ensuring healthy liver function.
The liver is one of the largest organs in the body. Its responsibilities include processing vitamins and nutrients from your food into forms that can be used by your body, recycling compounds such as iron from red blood cells, supporting the body's healthy clotting process, producing important hormones, secreting bile and converting sugars into glycogen. The liver is also responsible for the body's natural detoxification processes.
Healthy liver, healthy body
Modern living creates a heavy load on the liver, making it critical to proactively maintain liver health. That's where hepato-protective herbs such as milk thistle come in. Milk thistle contains antioxidants that support not only liver health, but the overall health of your entire body.
Silymarin is extracted from milk thistle. This extract is a powerful antioxidant that promotes healthy liver function in its own right. Advanced extraction technology has resulted in our ability to isolate otherconstituents within the silymarin extract itself, and test their ability to support liver health and beyond.
Other compounds in Life Extension milk thistle extract
Silibinin is another compound present in our high-quality milk thistle extract. Made up of silybins A and B, it is the most biologically active flavonolignan component found in milk thistle extract. Its beneficial effects on the liver have been shown in pre-clinical and clinical studies. Other milk thistle extracts called isosilybin A and B have proven to be the most efficient at helping to maintaining healthy cell division
