trunature ® Premium Milk Thistle, featuringhigh-absorption Siliphos®, offers powerful support for liver health.† Clinical studies have shown that milk thistle helps support healthy liver function and helps protect your liver from oxidative stress, it will also help the body eliminate its own naturally generated toxins.†1
These benefits are enhanced with Siliphos®. This advanced ingredient is made using the Phytosome™ process – a revolutionary technology that dramatically increases the absorption of silybin, the key active component of milk thistle. Detailed clinical studies have shownthat Siliphos® has a 4.6-fold higher liver bioavailability compared to other milk thistle extracts.2This makes Siliphos® the most bioavailable form of milk thistle extract available today. Increased absorption may help maximize the health promoting effects of silybin†3.
Both the United States National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have catalogued more than 400 scientific studies of milk thistle extracts and its active compounds.
Studies confirm that milk thistle extract is one of the most valuable and beneficial herbal remedies available, with benefits such as:
- Promoting healthy liver function to eliminate the body’s naturally generated toxins†4,1
- Helps protect the liver from oxidative stress†1
- Helps the liver form new cells to replace damaged or old liver cells†4
- May provide heart benefits by helping the liver maintain healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range†5
The liver plays critical role in detoxification of harmful substances.†The liver is the second-largest organ in the body (your skin is the largest) and is the largest gland. All together, the liver performs over five hundred separate functions. In addition to being the primary organ of detoxification, it is critically involved in all aspects of metabolism; it makes important cellular structural components; and it produces many important blood proteins.†
If your liver is overloaded you may be suffering from low energy levels, since a great deal of your body’s energy resources are being devoted to detoxification. That leaves very little energy for other body processes. Supporting your liver is an important step in maintaining or achieving better health and doing so will help your energy levels soar.†
Milk thistle seeds contain a flavonoid complex known as silymarin composed of silybin, silydianin and silychristin. Research has shown that it is the absorption of silybin that is the key to unlocking the health benefits of milk thistle.
Regular silybin is poorly absorbed and easily destroyed when it enters the stomach and digestive tract. Siliphos® is developed using Indena’s proprietary Phytosome™ technology developed specifically to optimize silybin absorption.
The Phytosome™ process is used to bind the silybin with phosphatidylcholine – a key component of cell membranes – to form Siliphos® and enhance the absorption of silybin to deliver more of this active ingredient to support liver health.†Siliphos® has been shown to produce an 8-fold higher liver bioavailability compared to regular silybin milk thistle extracts.2
trunature® Premium Milk Thistle featuring high-absorption Siliphos® provides your liver with the support it needs by producing a “triple-shot” of healthy benefits.†That’s because Siliphos® not only exerts direct effects on improving liver health it also helps boost energy production within liver cells and increases the levels of glutathione – the key antioxidant that our liver naturally produces.†6
The higher the energy and glutathione content within the liver, the greater the liver’s capacity to detoxify harmful chemicals. Typically, when we are exposed to chemicals that can damage the liver including alcohol, the ability to produce energy and the concentration of glutathione in the liver is substantially reduced. This reduction in energy production and glutathione makes the liver cell susceptible to damage.†
Since the ability of the liver to detoxify is largely related to the level of energy production and glutathione in the liver, the results of this study seem to indicate that milk thistle extracts can increase detoxification reactions by up to 35%.†6
Milk thistle extracts have shown an excellent safety profile with no known side effects or interactions with medications occurring at recommended dosage levels.
