Milk Thistle Forte is a concentrated liver support formula containing Milk Thistle seed that helps support liver function and protect liver structure.

Milk Thistle has been traditionally used in herbal preparations to:

• Support healthy liver function and structure
• Protect liver tissue by supporting normal cellular defenses
• Support general healthy detoxification function and toxin elimination function
• Support normal bile production and secretion to help relieve mild symptoms of occasional mild digestive discomfort*

Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) contains a range of flavanolignans (silybin A and B, silychristin, silydianin, isosilybin and 2,3-dehydro derivatives) collectively called silymarin or silybin, as well as simple flavonoids such as taxifolin. Flavanolignans are important indicators of quality and efficacy. The flavanolignans are often measured analytically by the non-specific and less accurate 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine colorimetric method, which also reacts with any ketonic compounds, including the flavonoid taxifolin. MediHerb® has developed an HPLC method to allow the individual levels of the flavanolignans to be accurately measured, and determine a value for these which is not inflated by the presence of simple flavonoids.
