Protect and cleanse your liver with Hawaii Pharm’s Super Concentrated Milk Thistle!
Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) is a natural herb that has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is commonly used to detoxify the body, especially the liver. Milk Thistle also known as Holy Thistle, Variegated Thistle, Lady’s Thistle. It’s a weed that grows mostly in California that’s commonly turned into extract to reap its cell regenerating benefits. Milk thistle contains silymarin, (silibinin, silydianin, and silychristin), vitamin E (tocopherols), and about 90% fatty acids. Silymarin and silybin are powerful antioxidants that are known to help protect the liver from toxins, including the effects of alcohol. Big bonus; silymarin increases glutathione levels! Not only has silymarin been found to increase glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that is crucial for liver detoxification, but it also helps regenerate liver cells. Milk thistle is able to promote healthy digestive function by helping with enzyme formation, increasing bile production, decreasing and soothing the mucous membranes throughout the body. Milk thistle works by drawing toxins out of the body that can cause symptoms and diseases. Milk Thistle also;
- Helps curtail cancer development

Tony O’s take on Hawaii Pharm’s Milk Thistle;
This is a nice addition to anybody’s herbal cabinet who likes to indulge in a few drinks or for the typical “weekend warrior” of local watering holes. It helps the liver recover from it’s intake of alcohol and helps your body dump toxins and regenerate precious liver cells to keep your liver working to its fullest potential. Not to be used every day, I would recommend a friend or a client to use Hawaii Pharm’s Milk Thistle for a few days after a heavy session of drinking or attending a large party where food and drink were abundant; a situation where even the most disciplined tend to overindulge in those sinful pleasures a bit more than we should.
