Milk thistle extract is one of nature's most potent weapons to support liver health. Until recently, however, the technology hasn't been available to fully harness this plant's full benefits. The problem has been the star component of milk thistle, called silybin, does not dissolve well in water. This makes it difficult for your body to absorb all of it. Scientists have developed a novel technology to overcome silybin's poor bioavailability. The solution is to mix silybin with a nutrient called phosphatidylcholine.

Phosphatidylcholine facilitates transport across the intestinal lining into the bloodstream, making it an ideal "carrier molecule" for silybin. Scientists believe that phosphatidylcholine molecularly bonds to silybin ushering it through the membranes of cells in the intestinal tract. This silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex is absorbed nearly five times better than silymarin alone, and its ultimate bioavailability to the liver, its target organ, is ten-fold greater than silymarin alone.

This novel milk thistle extract with phosphatidylcholine contains standardized concentrations of silybin and isosilybin A and B not found in other milk thistle extracts.

Suggested Use

Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.

Take one (1) softgel twice daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. European Milk Thistle is both grown and processed in Europe. This premium quality extract is triple standardized to the main active compound, silymarin, but also standardized to three high active isomers (silybin, isosilybin A and B).

Other Ingredients

Sunflower oil, gelatin, soy lecithin, glycerin, purified water, soy fatty acids, carob color, beeswax, dl-alpha tocopherol.

Posted by Reviewer1116896 on Apr 13, 2014

I can take other brands in huge amounts and feel nothing. this one I feel right away. liver just start relaxing. I agree with LEF the bio availability must be 10x higher with this product. also gives me more energy. coupled with schisandra and Bupleurum you got your self the supreme liver formula.
