Functions of Milk Thistle Extract
Europeans have been using Milk Thistle as health supplement for over 2000 years. An optimum amount of Milk Thistle can help improve hepatitis. The Germans then try extracting Milk Thistle essence Silymarin from the seed of Milk Thistle in 1968. Silymarin can detoxify, strengthen and protect the liver.
Milk Thistle plays a significant role in protecting the liver as it can help the liver resist invasion of toxin and eliminate toxin, while at the same time effectively protect and stimulate the regeneration of liver cells.
Silymarin can effectively improve the function of liver, while its effects can be classified into the following 3 kinds:
- Antioxidant effect
Silymarin is an effective kind of antioxidant called Isoflavone, which can help suppress 5-lipoxygenase, an enzyme which speeds up oxidation. Silymarin can thus increase the concentration of antioxidant in liver cells, and stabilize cell membranes (especially liver cell), so as to achieve antioxidant effect.
- Detoxification effect
Mushroom picking workers eat milk thistles to prevent liver failure caused by mis-intake of poisonous mushrooms since long in Germany. Silymarin is the main component of detoxification exist in Milk Thistle, which can have detoxifying effect, prevent invasion of toxin and discharge toxin. Silymarin can also improve the liver’s function of detoxification and stand against toxic elements.
- Help repair and regenerate liver cells
Liver cell is one of the few organ cells that has regenerating ability, while Silymarin can increase the protein synthesis of nucleotide exist in normal liver cells, but not enhancing the growth of bad liver cells. Silymarin can also repair liver cells destroyed by alcohol which makes it especially important for usual drinkers.
