Forest Vitamin – Milk Thistle 10000mg 100 capsules
Forest Vitamin Plasma Thistle is a dietary supplement which is based on the all-natural extract of the plant called spotted thistle, including a complex of flavonolignans, known as silymarin.
Milk thistle is a plant that is very common in countries with a Mediterranean climate and in some parts of Asia. In Poland, it is a cultivated plant with very typical white spots on its leaves. It owes its health properties mainly to its fruit.
Milk thistle – properties
The presence of silymarin, a complex of natural flavonolignans, is primarily responsible for the potency of the beneficial properties of milk thistle. In addition, the plant contains essential oils, vitamin E, histamine, tyramine and sterols. All this means that milk thistle supports liver function in a special way. It promotes the regeneration of its cells, inhibits necrotic lesions, seals cell membranes, and protects the liver from penetration of toxins.
There are various compounds in the composition of milk thistle, such as:
- Silymarin – this is a mixture of flavonolignans, which is the main component of milk thistle. Silymarin acts as a powerful antioxidant and protects the liver from harmful substances.
- Flavonoids – are a group of plant compounds with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The flavonoids contained in milk thistle help protect the liver from damage and promote cell regeneration.
- Oleic acid – is an unsaturated fatty acid that helps lower blood cholesterol levels and has anti-inflammatory effects.
- Vitamin E – is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
- Phospholipids – are compounds that help to increase the absorption of nutrients and protect the liver from damage.
All of these components of milk thistle help protect the liver from damage and promote liver regeneration. In addition, milk thistle may also have other health properties, such as lowering cholesterol, improving digestion and anti-inflammatory effects.
The preparation is not a substitute for a well-rounded diet and healthy lifestyle, but can be a valuable supplement to them.
