A well-researched, standardized botanical extract, milk thistle contains potent antioxidants that can protect liver cells from free radical damage, strengthen liver cell membranes, and help maintain the liver's built-in antioxidant system - glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD). In numerous studies, its active ingredient, silymarin, has been utilized to prevent liver cell damage by carbon tetrachloride, ethanol, acetaminophen, mushroom toxins, and benzopyrene from automobile exhaust. Silymarin has also been shown to help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response. Of the three flavonoids comprising silymarin, silybin predominates and is the most potent. Siliphos provides the benefits of silymarin (flavonoid complex from milk thistle) and phosphatidylcholine in one compound. Siliphos is a phytosome, a water-soluble flavonoid (in this case, silybin) made lipid-friendly by the addition of phosphatidylcholine. This allows for better incorporation of this liver-protective flavonoid into liver cell membranes. Studies indicate the silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex in Siliphos provides superior bioavailability compared to conventional milk thistle products.
Cynara scolymus (artichoke) has a long history of use in hepatic support. Turmeric has been used traditionally in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to support liver function. The primary efficacious agent is the yellow pigment curcumin. Curcumin's hepatoprotective activity is likely due to its strong antioxidant activity and potential to maintain the body's normal inflammatory response. Binding curcumin to the hepatoprotective phospholipid phosphatidylcholine (as Meriva) not only increases bioavailability but enhances its hepatoprotective effects.

Great product for liver health
Posted by DrJah24 on Oct 24, 2016
I recently found out about silybin phytosome and how its way more bio-available then normal silymarin. This product has 3 great ingredients in it for your liver and they all work together to help heal and improve liver function. Thorne is by far the best brand of supplements you can get, yeah they are a little more expensive but you get what you pay for.
Great Liver Detoxifier

Whenever the body's detox systems seem to get sluggish, SAT is a great product. My kinesiologist has verified this for me via contact reflex analysis many times.
when getting too much unhealthy food, it will help you to resolve the toxic element.

Giving to my dogs for protection from doxycycline. It did a great job bringing their alt and alp back into range. Studies have shown this form of milk thistle and curcumin to be the best.
