Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle, Promotes Liver Health, 150 mg Caps, 100 Count

From the manufacturer

An Ancient Herb

Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) extracts have been used as traditional herbal remedies for almost 2000 years, and milk thistle is now extensively cultivated as a healing herb. Today, milk thistle extracts are among the most popular and the best researched of all herbal remedies.

Special Antioxidant Benefits

Milk Thistle is active against assaults upon liver cell integrity and function. It has direct and indirect antioxidant benefits by elevating the body’s own defenses. Research has shown that milk thistle extracts boost immune function and protects against oxidation in the liver.*

High Concentrated Non-GMO Silymarin Extract

Only 20-50% of silymarin is assimilated from the gastrointestinal tract at any given time. An effective milk thistle supplement needs to be highly concentrated to provide a physiologically significant amount. Jarrow Formulas’ Milk Thistle is Non-GMO certified by NSF, and a standardized 30:1 extract that yields 80% total silymarin flavonoids.

Product Profile

The Greek herbalist Dioscorides catalogued milk thistle in his list of healing plants for liver conditions, improving bile flow and stimulating digestion.* The Roman author Pliny was of a similar opinion. Indeed, milk thistle (Silybum marianum) extracts have been used as traditional herbal remedies for almost 2000 years and milk thistle is now extensively cultivated as a healing herb. Today, milk thistle extracts are among the most popular and the best researched of all herbs. Modern research has focused on bile production and liver function. German scientists have produced an extract called silymarin, which has a variety of liver-protectant properties.* The active principles normally constitute only one to four percent of the total plant, so it is necessary to concentrate the extract extensively to provide benefits. Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle provides just such a potent concentrate.

Distinguishing Features

  • 30:1 extract yielding 80% flavonoids, including silymarin
  • Supported immune and liver health in clinical trials*
  • Improves glutathione levels, the body’s major antioxidant*

Special Antioxidant Benefits

Silymarin refers to three active flavonoid components of milk thistle: primarily silybin, with smaller amounts of silydianin and silychristin. This trio neutralizes toxins and improves liver function.* Its action rests primarily upon the ability to inhibit production and activity of hepatotoxic (liver toxic) compounds.* More recent evidence indicates that it benefits the health of several other organs as well.* The liver is the primary organ for detoxification. Many toxins are either free radicals, or encourage free radical production and may subsequently interfere with the liver’s defenses against free radicals. As a potent antioxidant, silymarin intervenes in free radical generation and protects against many reactive oxygen species.* The extract also increases the liver’s content of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione (GSH) by ~35%, and increases the levels of the body’s major antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD).* Silymarin also modulates the actions of lipoxygenase in the liver.* Lipoxygenase acts upon polyunsaturated fatty acids to produce pro-inflammatory compounds called leukotrienes, which cause damage to liver cell membranes.

Silymarin is active against all of these assaults upon liver cell integrity and function. It therefore has direct and indirect antioxidant benefits by elevating the body’s own defenses. Research has shown that milk thistle extracts also significantly enhance cellular immune biomarkers.*

Supporting Liver Regeneration, Bile Solubility And Bioavailability

The liver is capable of extensive self-regeneration, but silymarin can even markedly increase this ability to replace damaged cells.* There is also some suggestion that silymarin stimulates protein synthesis in the liver.* Nevertheless, silymarin does not encourage malignant liver cell growth.* Growing evidence suggests that silymarin has protective properties to the kidneys that mirror those in the liver.* Classically, milk thistle is associated with improved digestion and bile production.* These are important functions of the liver and their impairment can lead to undesirable outcomes in the body. Clinical trials have supported this traditional employment of the herb. The extract can increase bile solubility and possibly help guard against stone formation.*

Silymarin exhibits poor solubility in water, and only 20-50% of silymarin is assimilated from the gastrointestinal tract at any given time. Thus, an effective milk thistle supplement needs to be highly concentrated, like Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle, to provide a physiologically significant amount. According to the German monograph covering milk thistle, 12-15 grams of the crude herbal extract provides 200-400 mg silymarin. This is equivalent to the amount delivered by only three capsules of Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle.
