What are the properties of Silymarin?
Silymarin has antioxidant, protective, cleansing regenerative properties for the hepatic cells. In fact, we could say that one of the main functions of our liver is to filter water soluble toxins present in the blood, making sure that they are excreted from our body.
When these toxins are not water soluble like the toxins from alcohol, poisonous mushrooms, drugs, insecticides, pesticides and others, the liver stores them and breaks them down with specific enzymes. This process leads to what is known as lipid peroxidation, the destruction of the hepatic cell membranes and a loss of glutathione, one of the most important liver protectors.
Recent studies conclude that Silymarin prevents the lipid peroxidation as well as the destruction of hepatic cell membranes, shortening the regeneration of these cells by stimulating the protein synthesis.
In addition, it also increases the glutathione levels, with the subsequent drop in prostaglandins and leukotrienes, substances that are involved in the inflammatory process caused by the release of free radicals. This protective effects makes of Silymarin an useful product against hepatitis, liver inflammation, hepatic detoxification and other applications.

- Beneficial supplement for those who want to protect and keep their liver healthy.
