A well-researched, standardized botanical extract, milk thistle contains potent antioxidants that
can protect liver cells from free radical damage, strengthen liver cell membranes, and help
maintain the liver's built-in antioxidant system – glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD).
In numerous studies, its active ingredient, silymarin, has been utilized to prevent liver cell
damage by carbon tetrachloride, ethanol, acetaminophen, mushroom toxins, and benzopyrene from
automobile exhaust. Silymarin has also been shown to help maintain the body's normal inflammatory
response. Of the three flavonoids comprising silymarin, silybin predominates and is the most potent.
Siliphos provides the benefits of silymarin (flavonoid complex from milk thistle) and
phosphatidylcholine in one compound. Siliphos is a phytosome, a water-soluble flavonoid (in this
case, silybin) made lipid-friendly by the addition of phosphatidylcholine. This allows for better
incorporation of this liver-protective flavonoid into liver cell membranes. Studies indicate the
silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex in Siliphos provides superior bioavailability compared to
conventional milk thistle products.
Cynara scolymus (artichoke) has a long history of use in hepatic support. Turmeric has been used
traditionally in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to support liver function. The primary
efficacious agent is the yellow pigment curcumin. Curcumin's hepatoprotective activity is likely
due to its strong antioxidant activity and potential to maintain the body's normal inflammatory
response. Binding curcumin to the hepatoprotective phospholipid phosphatidylcholine (as Meriva)
not only increases bioavailability but enhances its hepatoprotective effects.
