Pure Encapsulations Silymarin (milk thistle) offers support for the liver, cells and colon. The liver acts as a filter in your body that helps remove the toxins you encounter every day. Many of these toxins can be found in unhealthy food sources and environmental pollutants like pesticides. Supporting this filtration is essential in keeping toxic levels to a minimum so the liver can continue to work in the body's natural detox process. Silymarin / Milk Thistle Capsules from Douglas Labs provide 150 mg of Milk Thistle extract. Milk thistle is a common Mediterranean herb that contains silymarin. This is the main active ingredient that may help in repairing and regenerating your liver cells. It works by binding to the liver's outer cell membrane to potentially protect it from harmful toxins. This may also help in shielding the liver from free radical damage that results from the filtration process. Above all silymarin can help stimulate the production of ribosomes which might promote healthy repair and replacement of hard working liver cells.
Recommended use: 1 capsule, 1-4 times daily, between meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
