The U.S. Navy Study - Milk Thistle (Silymarin) (30 mg)

The common milk thistle contains silymarin, one of the most potent liver medicines known. Silymarin's effect in preventing liver destruction relates to its ability, in many instances, to inhibit the factors that are responsible for the damage, i.e. free radicals and leukotrienes. Equally important is its ability to stimulate protein synthesis, which results in an increase in the production of new liver cells to replace the damaged ones.

In human studies, silymarin has been shown to have positive effects in treating several types of liver disease, including cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis, fatty infiltration of the liver (chemical and alcohol induced), subclinical cholestasis of pregnancy and gallbladder inflammation. The therapeutic effect of silymarin in these disorders has been confirmed by microscopic examination of the cells (biopsy), clinical and laboratory data.
