What is Silymarin?
Life Pro's Silymarin is a supplement formulated with standardised silymarin from the dried extract of milk thistle.
Milk thistle is an herbaceous plant traditionally used in various regions of Asia, Europe and India. Its main effects are due to its silymarin content, a mixture of active ingredients including silybinin, which is responsible for its main effects on the body.
Silymarin has been reported to have some positive effects on metabolic control, cholesterol and especially on the main liver enzymes which can be altered in the event of injury.
It is this effect that may help prevent liver cell deterioration by controlling liver dysfunction and oxidative stress. Compounds that are able to increase the synthesis of endogenous antioxidants or control oxidative stress in the body are those that may be effective in normalising liver function and combating hepatotoxicity. These effects would appear in conjunction with a reduction in the main symptoms of degeneration of liver function.
