THE BIG DEFENDER
The active components in milk thistle extracts are a group of chemical compounds collectively known as silymarin. Silymarin is an antioxidant that protects cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are toxic by-products of oxygen metabolism that can cause significant damage to living tissues when produced in quantities that exceed the body’s neutralising mechanisms. Stress, medicines, injury, alcohol consumption, and infections can all lead to increased free radical generation.
Silymarin helps to protect cell membranes from damage induced by free radicals. It stabilises liver cell membranes and prevents binding and penetration of toxins, e.g. ethanol, paracetamol, Amanita phalloides from poisonous mushrooms, and others.
Silymarin also helps the liver to generate new cells and proteins to recover from injury.
Silymarin also has anti-inflammatory properties and may prevent scar tissue formation.
In summary, silymarin:
1. Is a free radical scavenger that protects cell membranes from damage caused by toxins and oxidative stress
2. Helps the liver to recovery from injury
3. Has anti-inflammatory properties
4. Protects against scar tissue formation
