Valupak Milk Thistle Tablets - 30 Tablets
ValupakMilk Thistle Tablets- The major action of Milk Thistle is on the liver. The liver performs an incredible number of functions in the body. The major functions of the liver include the production of bile, filtration of the blood and removal of bacteria, and the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, fats and many other compounds used by the body.It also metabolises drugs and detoxifies numerous ingested substances such as alcohol and nicotine, as well as toxins produced by the body.Milk Thistle supports normal liver function and has a protective effect on cell membranes due to its strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging action.This action appears to be largely due to the action of the active constituents in milk thistle which are a complex of flavanolignans collectively called silymarin.Silymarin can inhibit the factors that can cause liver damage, as well as stimulating the replacement of old and damaged cells with new liver cells. Silymarin increases the capacity of the liver to detoxify, by increasing glutathione levels in the liver. Glutathione, an important antioxidant compound, is responsible for detoxifying a wide range of drugs, hormones and chemicals in the liver.Extensive research conducted over the past 30 years shows Milk Thistle extract improves liver dysfunction in patients with acute and chronic hepatitis A, B and C, chronic alcoholic liver disease and fatty liver caused by chemical toxin damage. Silymarin has been shown to lower the death rate of alcoholic patients over a two to four year period. Milk Thistle has a broad spectrum of use.
