Milk thistle tincture is mainly consumed for liver healing, for lowering cholesterol levels and for detoxifying the body. It is particularly effective in those who suffer from diabetes, dyspepsia, arthritis and cirrhosis of the liver.
The silimarin substance contained in milk thistle has a strong protective effect on the liver as it prevents the binding of toxins to the hepatic cell membranes and reduces the hepatic damage caused by many environmental drugs and toxins. This substance treats liver complications due to alcoholism, including cirrhosis. The chronic infections, such as hepatitis, also reduce liver function. Silymarin, consisting of three different flavonoids, protects the liver, stimulates the production of new hepatic cells and accelerates protein synthesis.
By improving the health and functioning of the liver, milk thistle with its diuretic action reduces pressure on the kidney and lymphatic systems. By increasing urination, kidney and bladder health improves while toxins, fats, salts and water are excreted by the body.
Milk thistle tincture is consumed for its anti-inflammatory properties which relieve the pains of arthritis, migraines, headaches, joint pains and stomach pains.
Flavonoids and antioxidants, contained in milk thistle tincture, fight oxidative stress and reduce the action of free radicals which are responsible for chronic diseases, cellular mutation and premature aging.
Milk thistle tincture reduces blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It relieves the cardiovascular system by reducing the risk of atherosclerosis, heart attacks and strokes.
