Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome – Powder, 10g
Phosphatidylcholine is not merely a passive “carrier” for the active flavonoid silybin, but is itself an active ingredient for promoting liver health. Silybin may protect the liver because of its significant antioxidant activity, while phosphatidylcholine may help repair and replace liver cell membranes.
The fruit of the milk thistle contains complex flavonoids and the plant has been used for centuries to address liver health. Silymarin, the active ingredient of the plant, is a mixture of at least seven flavolignans and one flavonoid. The most abundant and potent constituents in silymarin are two diastereoisomeric compounds known as silybin. Unfortunately, silymarin, and even more silybin, have a poor intestinal absorption that limits their benefits. To overcome and optimize the poor bioavailability of silybin, Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome is formulated with non-GMO phospholipids exploiting the Phytosome technology.
What is Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome?
Silybum Marianum, otherwise known as Milk thistle, contains multiple constituents with strong antioxidant activity that may 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. Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome is an ingredient in which silybin, one of the main bioactive constituents in milk thistle, is associated with soy phospholipids to significantly improve bioavailibility.
Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome Benefits and Uses
Studies have shown that Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome may have the following benefits:

Additional Information on Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome
Silybin, normally 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 preparation allows for 10x better absorption of this liver-protective flavonoid into liver cell membranes. Silymarin may 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 of the three.
Silybin (Milk Thistle) Phytosome is composed of about 40% Silybum Marianum and 60% Lecithin, derived from Sunflower.
