Powerfully Supports Liver Health
The active extract of milk thistle, called silymarin, is a mixture of flavonolignans, and includes silydianin, silychristin, and silybin, with silybin being the most biologically active.
Silymarin has shown to be one of the most potent substances in promoting liver health. Its main benefits appear to be the support of healthy DNA function, stabilization of plasma membranes, and stimulation of liver cells. It has also been shown to inhibit lipid peroxidation and inhibit glutathione depletion induced by liver toxins, even increasing total glutathione levels in the liver by 63% over controls.
Phosphatidylcholine Enhances Milk Thistle’s Delivery
Until recently, the technology hasn’t been available to fully harness the complete benefits of milk thistle extract. The problem has been the main component of milk thistle, called silybin, does not dissolve well in water. This makes it difficult for your body to absorb all of it.
Scientists have developed a novel technology to overcome silybin’s poor bioavailability. The solution is to mix silybin with a nutrient called phosphatidylcholine.
Phosphatidylcholine facilitates transport across the intestinal lining into the bloodstream, making it an ideal “carrier molecule” for silybin. Scientists believe that phosphatidylcholine molecularly bonds to silybin steering it through the membranes of cells in the intestinal tract.
This silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex is absorbed up to five times better than silymarin alone, and its ultimate bioavailability to the liver, its target organ, is up to ten-fold greater than silymarin alone.
