This Natures Way product provides an extract from the milk thistle herb.
The extract is standardised to 80% silymarin which is the active bioflavonoid complex in milk thistle.
Silymarin has a sub-component called silibinin and both are powerful antioxidants in the liver. This means they protect the liver cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
They also help protect the liver from toxic substances by supporting liver detoxification and are useful for maintaining the overall health of the liver.
