Description Usage Supplement Facts A well-researched, standardized botanical extract, milk thistle contains important 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 [in the liver].* Of the three flavonoids comprising silymarin, silybin predominates and is the most biologically active. 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 [in the liver].* Binding curcumin to the hepatoprotective phospholipid phosphatidylcholine (as Meriva) not only increases bioavailability but enhances its hepatoprotective effects.* these three important botanicals have liver-protective properties* contains Siliphos® (milk thistle bound to phosphatidylcholine to form a phytosome) for better absorption than standard milk thistle extracts* provides Meriva® (curcumin bound to phosphatidylcholine) for better absorption than straight curcumin* artichoke helps the liver metabolize fats, providing benefit for fatty liver* Meriva and Siliphos have been evaluated in numerous clinical studies *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
