Try Milk Thistle for Liver Support

Standardized Milk ThistleMilk Thistle seems to be the “go to” herb for liver support… but why?

Milk Thistle has a naturally occurring flavonoid in it called Silymarin… while it may sound silly, it’s the farthest thing from it. Milk Thistle has been used for hundreds of years as a liver tonic throughout many parts of Europe and other areas where it grows naturally, and modern science has brought it into the 21st century by evaluating the various nutrients and pointing to the Silymarin as one of the major nutrients that has very specific protective benefits for liver tissues.

As is the case with other bioflavonoids, Silymarin is also an antioxidant that helps to protect all the cells in the body from free radical damage, but it has even deeper benefits for nourishing the liver and keeping it healthy.
