Milk Thistle

Origin:  Milk thistle from organic pharming in Europe.

Plant part used: seeds.

After cold pressing, the Milk Thistle seeds follow a distillation step and two extraction steps. The result is a Milk Thistle extract rich in Silymarin,  86,99 % Silymarin!

Milk thistle ( Silybum marianum ) is a plant from southern Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. It is about 60 - to 150 cm tall. The waxy leaves have yellowish spines. The name goes back to the legend that the milk of Mary could cause the white spots on the leaves. Milk thistle blooms in July and August, with pink to purple flowers. The plant we can also be found in the Netherlands on nutrient-rich calcareous soil, for example, roadsides. The seeds are used for centuries for medicinal purposes. The substance silymarin is used to protect the liver and is also used in case of poisoning by mushrooms. 

If combined with other detox nutrients, the detoxing power of Silymarin alone is increased. N-Acetyl-Cystein (NAC) & Choline are known to increase the antioxidant power of our (liver) cells, certainly in combination with crucial amino acids like L-Asparagine and L-Methionine.

Silymarin can be found in our products Liver Love and Hang -Over.
