Certified European Milk Thistle

(Silymarin-Silibinins-Isosilybin A & B)

The liver is a large glandular organ, whose functions include decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, secretion of bile, and conversion of sugars into glycogen, which it stores. The liver is also responsible for processing many vitamins and nutrients into a form that can be utilized by the body, as well as detoxification of various substances. Modern living involves daily exposure to substances that are toxic to our bodies, which imposes a heavy load on the liver. Therefore, a healthy liver is critical to well-being. Certain lifestyle risks and medical conditions make it all the more important to ensure that the liver is being maintained at its functional best.

In Europe and Asia, herbal liver tonics have been in common use for centuries. The effectiveness of the herbs used has been validated during the past decades through modern research and clinical studies. These herbs generally contain antioxidants, cell membrane-stabilizing agents, bile secretion-enhancing compounds, or nutrients that prevent depletion of endogenous antioxidants such as glutathione. Hepatoprotection is beneficial not only for the liver but also for the overall health and vitality of the body.

Milk thistle extract has long been valued for its role in ensuring healthy liver function, and it is also a powerful antioxidant. Milk thistle extract consists of silibinins and other similar compounds. Until recently, scientists focused their research on silibinins, as they were the most abundant and biologically active ingredient found in milk thistle extract. Highly advanced extraction technology has now enabled scientists to isolate other silymarin constituents and test their efficacy against various cell lines. Among the compounds tested, a silymarin constituent called isosilybin B proved to be the most efficient in maintaining healthy cell division.

Certified European Milk Thistle contains standardized, top-grade potencies of silymarin, silibinins, isosilybin A and isosilybin B, providing the full spectrum of milk thistle's liver- and prostate-supportive compounds.

Suggested Use

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

Take one (1) capsule daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. Certified 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 highly active isomers (silibinins, isosilybin A and B).

Other Ingredients

Vegetable cellulose (capsule), silica, vegetable stearate, rice flour.

Absolute best Milk Thistle on the market !!!

Posted by Reviewer2798647 on Jun 15, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I did lots of research on milk thistle before realising how great this LEF one is. It has the different isoforms, providing greater benefit. It helped me reduce elevated liver enzymes. I take a double dose before I go out for drinks. Would highly recommend this as a great one a day liver booster.

My mom started taking 750mg milk thistle for the past 5 months. She had been diagnosed with severe fatty liver after many chemotherapy sessions due to a breast cancer condition. Doctors couldn´t even see her liver on ultrasound exams due to the quantitiy of fat covering up the liver. Last 05/17/2013, she was submitted to another ultrasound check up and doctors could finally see her liver clearly. Fat decreased 70%!

Most potent liver support

Posted by SupplementsandFacts on May 01, 2013 | Verified Purchase

There is extensive scientific literature on the many beneficial effects of milk thistle extracts. This product contains the highest dose of the active ingredients (sylimarin, sylibinins, isosylibinin A and B) in a standardized form. These powerful antioxidants can prevent liver damages caused by alcohol, drugs (i.e. acetaminophen) and other toxins (heavy metals). I bought this product for my father, who is 63 years old, has probably moderate fatty liver disease and elevated liver enzymes, moderately but regularly drinks alcohol. He is a stubborn man, and wouldnt take more caps from a given product, so I had to find the one with the highest potency, because even one cap provides him with the adequate dose for a day. My mother also uses this product, though she doesnt have liver problems, but she noted that the after meal bloating disappeared when using this product. Milk thistle has other positive effects that are noteworthy: helps against prostate cancer and prevents LDL (bad cholesterol) oxidation and thus helps to fight atherosclerosis.
