    Provides Liver Support

    • Milk Thistle is most well-known for being a natural liver supporter and detoxifier. The liver constantly works hard to help defend from toxins that are common in our everyday life, acting like a filter and removing harmful substances from the body.
    • Milk Thistle has been shown to decrease, or even reverse, damage to the liver that’s been caused by prescription medications, antibiotics, pollution, and heavy metals.

    Other Supporting Roles

    • Milk Thistle works by drawing toxins out of the body that can cause a range of symptoms and diseases including those that have been linked to cancer development, high cholesterol, diabetes, kidney stones, gall bladder disorders, skin damage, and many more.
    • This herb's detoxifying properties can help relieve the negative effects of chemotherapy and alcohol use.
    • As an antioxidant, Milk Thistle is equally as powerful as other important nutrients like vitamin E or Vitamin C, which help fight free radical damage.
    • Milk Thistle can slow the aging process and help prevent disease development by aiding in the elimination of free radicals.
    • Lipophilic extracts from the seeds of the plant act as bioflavanoid antioxidants that increase immunity and slow down oxidative stress.
