Milk Thistle: natural ingredient of Wonderup

Properties and medical use of flavonoglinans (Silymarin)
Taken from [Properties and medical use of flavonolignans (Silymarin) from Silybum marianum] Phytotherapy Research (United Kingdom), 1996, 10/SUPPL. 1 (S25-S26)]

Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum): natural ingredient of WonderupThe purified extracts flavonolignan from the fruits of milk thistle (Silybum marianum (L.) Gaertn., Syn. Marianus Carduus L.) mainly contain silymarin, a compound silibinin, sosilibinina, and silicristin silidianin. Silymarin is used for the treatment of toxic liver damage (induced by alcohol, drugs or environmental toxins) and supportive therapy in chronic inflammatory liver diseases and in liver cirrhosis.

Silymarin and its main isomer silibinin, respectively, have been shown to possess antioxidant properties preventing lipid oxidation and destruction of the membranes in celule. Additionally, the biosynthesis of proteins and cell regeneration are so accelerated in the liver damaged, which leads to the restoration of hepatic functions.

A certain toxins from toxic mushrooms denied access to liver cells by silibinin through competitive inhibition of receptors to the cell mebrane.
The intravenous treatment with a soluble derivative of silibinin is currently an important life-saving in the standard therapy of cases of poisoning by Amanita phalloides.

Finally, it was recently shown that silymarin inhibits the production of lecotriene which explains its anti-inflammatory effect and its antifibrotic action.
Clinical tests confirm the positive effects found in experimental studies. Thus, silymarin is now not only the best documented substance for the therapy of the liver but also one of the vegetable extracts more accurately researched and studied with known mechanisms of action.

Tonic and regenerating liver (helps in problems and swelling of the liver: liver disease from alcoholism, from drug use, chronic hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, jaundice, sensibility to chemical substances, exposure to industrial toxins, detoxification programs) also protects it from toxic poisoning caused by poisonous mushrooms. Regenerates liver tissue damaged by hepatitis, cirrhosis, alcoholism, drugs and environmental toxins. It also helps against fatigue, depression and food allergies.
