Microgenics Milk Thistle 45000 One A Day 90 Capsules

Milk Thistle has a long traditional use in Western herbal medicine. In the 4th century BC, the ancient Greeks already used it to support liver and digestive health, and science is now backing up this ancient knowledge.


Help relieve digestive discomfort and supports gallbladder function
Indigestion or dyspepsia is a term that is used to describe when a person feels
uncomfortably full soon after starting eating. Symptoms may include pain and
discomfort in the stomach area, bloating or nauseous after eating. It affects up
to 1 in 10 people and is more prevalent in women.7

Indigestion can be caused by poor bile flow. Bile is a fluid that is made in and
released by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Bile helps with digestion by
breaking down fats into fatty acids.10 Research shows that Milk Thistle can help
improve production and flow of bile.9,11 This can help relieve indigestion and
digestive discomfort such as bloating.

Supports healthy liver function
Milk Thistle contains Silymarin and Silybin, two active components that help protect
the liver against damage. They act by preventing toxic and foreign substances
from penetrating and damaging liver cells. Silymarin also stimulates the production
of new liver cells so damaged ones can be replaced.1,3,8 It can also help lower the
liver enzymes ALT and AST. Raised levels of these enzymes are indicative of liver
disease, improved levels are associated with improved liver health.5,6

Antioxidant activity
Several studies have shown that Milk Thistle has an antioxidant effect. It scavenges
free radicals, and directly and indirectly prevents free radical formation. 2,4
It also keeps glutathione levels from dropping too low, and in healthy humans
it raises glutathione levels in the liver by as much as 35-50%. Glutathione is an
antioxidant that helps the liver detoxify harmful chemicals, drugs, and hormones.1,4
