Milk Thistle Info

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is regarded by herbalists as one of the primary liver tonic herbs. A flowering plant that grows worldwide, its seeds have been used medicinally for thousands of years. The seeds contain silymarin, a powerful antioxidant flavonoid complex, which can repair and regenerate damaged liver cells. It also inhibits fibrosis, making it valuable in prevention of cirrhosis.

Milk Thistle Benefits

Milk thistle can improve liver and gall bladder function, aid bile flow and protect the liver from free radical damage due to environmental toxins, pollution, stress and excess dietary fats.

Milk thistle aids both digestive and reproductive function through improved detoxification and elimination. It counteracts the effects of overindulging in food and alcohol and supports the body’s response to food intolerances.

Hepatitis, chronic liver disease, gallbladder disease and jaundice are all indications for milk thistle. It helps soften kidney stones and gallstones. Skin conditions related to poor liver function, such as psoriasis, can be improved with milk thistle. In vitro studies also indicate an anti-cancer effect.

Milk Thistle Side Effects

Safe to use as directed with no toxic effects. Short term effects of detoxification such as slight nausea, headache, skin rash or mild diarrhoea may occur.

Product Reviews

  • Very happy

    star

    Due to the nature of my work I don't have the time to go to shops and see what I want, so the only option left for me is to buy Online,
    I was very reluctant to do so as I wasn't sure I will get what I exactly want or at the time I want it, so after many online shops I came across HealthPost...I liked the website and the way the products are displayed with enough information (I didn't have to read Looooong descriptions) for me to decide what's best for me.

    I bought 4 products, Milk Thistle Dandelion Complex + Vitamin D3 1000iu Plus Boron & Selenium + Royal Jelly High Strength + MultiPlus Brain Essentials.
    I am not going to mention the top nutritional benefits I am getting, but I will mention a very important point at least for me and that is it NEVER leave an aftertaste after you swallow them, which made me feel really comfortable in having them.

    Worth mentioning the immediate support I get from the knowledgeable team at the Live chat, they answered all my questions and cleared any confusion I had before I bought...most importantly, they are real people and not scripted automation.

    Also, worth mentioning, the ease and fast delivery which arrived really fast after payment and packaged all very well.

    HealthPost Team...Now you have my full confidence in you and your products.
    You didn't only exceeded my expectation but you saved me good money.

    Thank you so much to ALL ar HealthPost.

    This has been a fantastic addition to support liver function. Having had Dengue Fever this helped me to get all things functioning well again! A real boost.
