Life Extension Advanced Milk Thistle Softgels contains silybin, the most active compound found in milk thistle seed extract which helps to detoxify the liver.

Milk thistle seed extract (silybum marianum) is one of nature's most potent weapons to support liver health. Until recently, however, the technology hasn't been available to fully harness this herb's full benefits. The problem has been the star component of milk thistle, called silybin, which does not dissolve well in water. This makes it difficult for your body to absorb all of it. Scientists have developed a novel technology to overcome silybin's poor bioavailability. The solution is to mix silybin with a nutrient called phosphatidylcholine.

Phosphatidylcholine facilitates transport across the intestinal lining into the bloodstream, making it an ideal "carrier molecule" for silybin. Scientists believe that phosphatidylcholine molecularly bonds to silybin ushering it through the membranes of cells in the intestinal tract. This silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex is absorbed nearly five times better than silymarin alone, and its ultimate bioavailability to the liver, its target organ, is ten-fold greater than silymarin alone.

This novel milk thistle extract with phosphatidylcholine contains standardized concentrations of silybin and isosilybin A and B not found in other milk thistle extracts.

Advanced Milk Thistle Benefits:

  • Delivers standardized nutrients to promote liver health & function
  • Supports the body's natural detoxification process
  • Encourages healthy cell division within the liver
  • Enhances absorption of active compounds into the bloodstream
