Milk thistle extract 175mg - 100 capsules

Milk thistle: nourishes and supports the liver

The liver is one of the most important organs of the human metabolism. Its cleansing effect is essential for the body. Furthermore, the liver produces bile fluid, which is needed for the fat digestion. Only a healthy liver is able to fulfil its versatile tasks optimally.

Milk thistle and liver

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) has already been a valuable remedy for the liver in the common health care for many years. Milk thistle is primarily characterised by its high content of silymarin, the most important constituent of the milk thistle seeds.


The active ingredient of milk thistle is silymarin. It is a mix of different plant substances, which include silicristin, silidianin, silibinin A and B as well as isosilibinin A and B. Silibinin is the substance with the primary effect.
Silymarin protects the liver, stabilises the liver cell membranes and promotes the liver regeneration.
Furthermore, silymarin promotes the liver’s natural detoxification function and is able to stimulate the glutathione production, which is a strong antioxidant able to neutralise free radicals and contribute to cell protection.
Traditionally, milk thistle is used for a full feeling, a bloated feeling in the belly and to support the digestion, the fat digestion in particular.
