Milk Thistle (Siliphos)

Milk Thistle (Siliphos)

Siliphos combines a flavonoid extract from milk thistle (silybin) with phospholipids to form a powerful well-absorbed complex. It offers liver-protective benefits and helps maintain normal levels of glutathione.

Milk thistle contains multiple antioxidants that protect liver cells from free radical damage, strengthen liver cell membranes, and help maintain the liver's built-in antioxidant systems – glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD). Silymarin extract derived from milk thistle has been shown to help maintain the liver's normal inflammatory response to liver-toxic compounds. Of the three flavonoids that comprise silymarin, silybin predominates and is the most biologically active. In numerous studies, silybin has been utilized to prevent liver cell damage from carbon tetrachloride, ethanol, acetaminophen, mushroom toxins, and benzopyrene from automobile exhaust.

Phosphatidylcholine is not merely a passive "carrier" for the active flavonoid silybin, but is itself an active ingredient documented to promote liver health, as phosphatidylcholine helps repair and replace liver cell membranes.

To produce Siliphos, silybin (a water-soluble flavonoid) is converted into a lipid-soluble compound by complexing it with phospholipids, such as phosphatidylcholine, to make a phytosome. The phytosome enhances absorption of this liver-protective flavonoid into liver cell membranes.

Siliphos provides the benefits of silybin and phosphatidylcholine in one well-absorbed compound. Studies indicate this silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex provides superior absorption compared to conventional milk thistle products. These ingredients likely provide the synergistic benefit of sparing liver cells from degradation. Research also shows further enhancement of healing effects of silybin when combined with curcurmin from turmeric.
