Thorne Research S.A.T. offers support to the liver for optimal absorption. S.A.T. (Silymarin, Artichoke, Turmeric) is a liver-protective formula that provides curcumin and milk thistle extracts as well-absorbed phytosomes. Artichoke provides support for fatty liver. S.A.T offers both silymarin and curcumin complexed to phospholipid compounds to optimize their absorbability and hepatoprotective effects. Silymarin (milk thistle) contains important antioxidant constituents that protect liver cells from free radical damage, strengthen liver cell membranes, and help maintain the liver's antioxidant system. Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) has a long history of use for hepatic support. Turmeric has been used traditionally in both Chinese and Ayurvedic systems of medicine to support liver function. Silybin is naturally a water-soluble flavonoid, but it is made lipid-friendly by being complexed with phospholipids. The result is that the phytosome preparation achieves better incorporation of this liver-protective flavonoid into liver cell membranes.
