Super Milk Thistle X combines artichoke extract, dandelion leaf extract, and licorice root extract with milk thistle fruit extract, standardized to contain 80% silymarin, milk thistle's most bioactive compound. A proprietary delivery system provides superior absorption of the milk thistle extract.*
The ingredients in Super Milk Thistle X synergistically to boost glutathione (a potent antioxidant) levels and provide support for liver function, and bile production and flow.* Super Milk Thistle X is available both alone and as an important part of the Whole Body Cleanse* internal cleansing system.*
How Does It Work?
Harmful substances that have been neutralized by the liver are carried to the intestines and kidneys for excretion. They are transported by bile, a greenish, watery solution that is synthesized by the liver. Stored in the gallbladder, a small sac cupped in the under surface of the liver, bile is also required for the digestion of dietary fats. When dietary fats are consumed, bile flows from the gallbladder to the intestines where it emulsifies fats and fat-soluble vitamins for absorption.
Silymarin also supports the health of hepatocytes, highly versatile liver cells with unique physiologic functions.* Studies of silymarin have demonstrated that it supports the health of the hepatocyte outer membrane, which is crucial to the liver's detoxification processes.* Silymarin also supports the healthy regenerative ability of the liver through support of protein synthesis in the hepatocytes.*
The use of silymarin in several clinical studies has established silymarin's safety in particular and milk thistle's safety as a whole.* Concomitant use of silymarin and other compounds in milk thistle with chemotherapeutic agents has been examined.*
Researchers have also studied milk thistle's safety and support of liver health in a variety of health situations.*
Artichoke Leaf Extract, Dandelion Root Extract, and Licorice Root Extract Artichoke extract specifically supports healthy bile production in the liver and healthy gastrointestinal function in general.* Research into artichoke's gastrointestinal supportive properties has included at least three clinical trials.*
Dandelion root extract supports healthy bile flow from the gallbladder.* Licorice supports the healthy flow of bile and the immune system.* Licorice also has a long history of providing healthy gastrointestinal support through the stimulation of natural protective factors and the support of healthy prostaglandin metabolism.*
When milk thistle (or other herbs) are bound with phosphatidylcholine, the phosphatidylcholine molecule facilitates absorption through the intestines into the bloodstream.* Research has shown increased blood and serum levels for bound herbs in comparison to the individual herb alone.*
To test whether binding an herb with phosphatidylcholine increased its bioavailability, researchers gave volunteers identical amounts of either milk thistle alone, or milk thistle bound to phosphatidylcholine. The researchers then took blood samples from the participants and measured the level of silybin (a key compound in milk thistle). The measurements showed that silybin levels in participants taking the bound form of milk thistle were higher, and that silybin was detected for a longer time, than those who took milk thistle without the proprietary delivery system.
