    The basics

    Silymarin, commonly known as milk thistle, is a rich extract from the seeds of flavonolignans and is celebrated for its positive impact on liver health.

    Our supplement provides a generous dose of 150mg per serving, an 18:1 extract yielding 72mg of silymarin.

    This compound functions in several ways, including acting as a potent antioxidant, reducing fibrosis, and preventing toxins from binding to liver cells.

    It also helps alleviate hangover effects. Apart from its liver-protective properties, it supports brain function and thwarts age-related decline.

    The need to know

    What are the benefits?

    Liver supporter

    • Protects liver health through reducing oxidative stress
    • Blocks binding of toxins to liver cells
    • Support brain related function and may prevent cognitive age related decline

    The Science

    The flavonolignans in silymarin act as antioxidants, reducing free radical production and oxidative stress, which is crucial in managing liver disease.

    Additionally, they interfere with fibrosis, a process linked to chronic liver conditions.

    Silymarin also protects liver cells by blocking the binding of various toxins, including alcohol, thereby reducing their damaging impact. Some research suggests it may aid in mitigating the effects of a hangover.

    The supplement's neuroprotective benefits are hypothesised to stem from its antioxidant properties, potentially safeguarding the brain from age-related decline.

    How will I know its working?

    Users may notice improved overall well-being, specifically in areas related to liver function. If you suffer from pale, yellow stools that are difficult to flush this may improve as bile production increases and helps with fat absorption.

    When to take it?

    Take 1 tablet daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.
