European Milk Thistle 120 softgels
Promote healthy liver function

Powerfully Supports Liver Health
Optimizes liver function and supports the body’ natural detoxification pathways
Advanced phospholipid delivery system increases active compounds in the liver

The active extract of milk thistle, called silymarin, is a mixture of flavonolignans, and includes silydianin, silychristin, and silybin, with silybin being the most biologically active.Silymarin has shown to be one of the most potent substances in promoting liver health. Its main benefits appear to be support of healthy DNA function, stabilization of plasma membranes, and stimulation of liver cells. It has also been shown to inhibit lipid peroxidation and inhibit glutathione depletion induced by liver toxins, even increasing total glutathione levels in the liver by 63% over controls.

Phosphatidylcholine Enhances Milk Thistle’s Delivery
Until recently, the technology hasn’t been available to fully harness the complete benefits of milk thistle extract.The problem has been the main component of milk thistle, called silybin, 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 steering it through the membranes of cells in the intestinal tract. This silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex is absorbed up to five times better than silymarin alone, and its ultimate bioavailability to the liver, its target organ, is up to ten-fold greater than silymarin alone. This innovative milk thistle extract with phosphatidylcholine contains standardized concentrations of silybin and isosilybin A and B not found in other milk thistle extracts! Compare the price of European Milk Thistle to commercial silymarin supplements, and you’ll see that this formula is available at one of the lowest costs per milligram.

Evidence demonstrates that the compounds in milk thistle—isosilybin, silibinin, and silymarin—offer protection against prostate cancer. Both silibinin and silymarin and are strong antioxidants and inhibit human carcinoma cell growth and DNA synthesis.Silibinin was found in animal research to exert cancer-fighting effects against an advanced form of human prostate tumor cells, resulting in a decrease in proliferation and an increase in programmed cancer-cell death.Silymarin may block cancer cell development and growth; it was found to contain one or more constituents that induce cancer cell apoptosis and inhibit mitogenic (cell-division promoting) and survival signaling by prostate cancer cells, showing silymarin’s ability to tackle cancer from a number of different angles.Both silymarin and silibinin inhibit the secretion of pro-angiogenic factors from tumor cells, which are necessary for these cells to recruit the blood supply required for their continued growth.

In animal research, silibinin was found to exert cancer-fighting effects against an advanced form of human prostate tumor cells, resulting in decreased proliferation and increased cancer-cell apoptosis.Silibinin has high bioavailability in the prostate after oral administration, and scientists concluded that it has strong potential to be developed as an intervention for hormone-refractory (castration-resistant) human prostate cancer.Silibinin may also work synergistically with the chemotherapy drug doxorubicin to help kill cancer cells, making it a potential candidate for adjuvant therapy.


However, isosilybin B—a lesser known constituent that comprises no more than 5% of silymarin and is absent from silibinin—appears to be more potent against prostate cancer cells than the other milk thistle substances.Scientists reported that other compounds may require much higher concentrations to achieve the same anti-cancer effect elicited by a relatively small dose of isosilybin B. It is important to note that some preparations sold as milk thistle extract, silymarin, or silibinin may contain little, or even no, isosilybin B. A typical suggested dosage of a quality standardized milk thistle extract is 750 milligrams daily , taken with or without food.
