By Now Foods5 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Silybin is the most bioactive component found in the extract of Milk Thistle known as Silymarin.

Silybin typically exhibits poor bioavailability; however, this clinical strength NOW product features Siliphos, a phytosome comprised of Silybin complexed with phosphatidyl choline, which has demonstrated absorbability of up to 4.6 times of standard Milk Thistle extracts.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This product by Now Foods is one of the most effective milk thistle supplements in the market for all-natural liver support. As a premier liver tonic, Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) delivers a natural flavonoid complex known as Silymarin, which has unique protective benefits for liver tissues. Researchers have identified one constituent of Silymarin, Silibin, as the most biologically active. Unfortunately, Silymarin, and even more Silybin, have a poor intestinal absorption, that limits their benefits. That's where Siliphos comes in. This advanced milk thistle supplement uses patented Phytosome technology to bind Silybin to natural soy phospholipids (Non-GMO) for enhanced bioavailability. I'm aware that several clinical studies have shown that Siliphos is 4-8 times more bioavailable than conventional milk thistle extracts. With that, it allows 4-8 times greater absorption of the key healing element of the milk thistle into the blood steam where it can do its good work. Through my own research, the patented Phytosome technology is actually owned by a large and well-known Italian firm named Indena. Indena is the world's leading company in the identification, development and production of active principles derived from plants, for use in the pharmaceutical, health-food and personal care industries. We all have great affections on natural products and the healing power of herbs, but as we also know, poor bioavailability in natural ingredients is a well-known issue for years and different strategies have been developed by researchers to ameliorate the absorption. The effectiveness of any herbal supplement (even medication) is soley dependent upon delivering an effective level of the active compounds. For milk thistle, this means delivering an effective level of Silybin. It only makes sense that if you can increase the absorption and utilization of these components that you will see better results. The patented Phytosome process ensures the vital link between bioflavonoid and bioavailability takes place before the herbal supplement or herbal extract is taken into the body, improving absorption, increasing biological availability, and enhancing delivery to the tissues. Researches have shown that an herbal Phytosome is more biologically active; therefore, it provides all the benefits of botanicals at reduced dosage. It also means we get more bangs for bucks! As demonstrated by a number of pharmacokinetic studies in comparison with free Silybin and Silymarin, Siliphos represents the most absorbable form of Silybin known until now. It's great to be able to get Siliphos at a super competitive price here in iHerb. If you're looking to use a top-notch quality with most potent and purest milk thistle supplement for support of healthy liver enzymes, this supplement has no equal. I am very happy with the results. I have not missed a day of taking this product and have been feeling Great-Great-Great! This product comes with 90 veggie caps per bottle. If you take 3 capsules per day, that will lasts for 30 days. I will suggest 3 caps per day for 3 months for intensive repair, detox and healing, and then 2 caps per day for maintenance in which one bottle can lasts for 45 days. Do remember to take supplement at least 30mins before each meal. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high quality product. I hope you'll find my review helpful to you. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects.
