Product Description

Blessed Thistle | May Improve Insulin Resistance

Milk thistle (don’t get it confused with blessed thistle) is extraordinarily useful in the treatment of liver diseases such as alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver poisoning, and viral hepatitis. Milk thistle is one of the few herbs that have no real pharmaceutical equivalent. It reduces inflammation and is an antioxidant. Traditionally used for functional disorders of the liver and gallbladder such as jaundice, it was also used to treat malaria. Today it is used for dyspepsia, toxic liver, and hepatic cirrhosis. The German Commission E has approved milk thistle for dyspeptic, liver, and gallbladder complaints. According to the German Commission E, milk thistle works in two ways: It alters the structure of the outer cell membrane of the liver cells to prevent toxins such as from food poisoning from getting inside the liver cells. Secondly, it stimulates the action of nucleolar polymerase A, which stimulates the regeneration of new, healthy liver cells.
