Product Description
Presentation

Each capsule contains standardized extract of “Milk Thistle” seed equivalent to 140 mg Silymarin.

 

Description

Silymarin is Flavonolignan extracted from plant “Milk Thistle”. It consists of four flavonolignan isomers namely- silybin, isosilybin, silydianin and silychristin. Silymarin is well known hepatoprotective agent. The liver-protecting and liver-repairing functions are due to two main actions: antioxidant and protein-restoring activities. The antioxidant activity of silymarin is ten times more powerful than vitamin E. It prevents toxic and foreign substances from penetrating into the liver cells by stabilizing the outer membrane of liver cells. The active constituents displace toxins by binding to proteins and receptors on the cell membrane. Silymarin also stimulates protein synthesis so that new liver cells can grow and damaged liver cells can be replaced. It acts by antioxidative, anti-lipid peroxidative, antifibrotic, anti-inflammatory, membrane stabilizing, immunomodulatory and liver regenerating mechanism.
