Milk Thistle benefits and uses

This herb is quite the hero of herbs. It has properties which help many organs of the body, including primarily the liver, but also the digestive system, skin and cells in general.

One of Milk Thistle's main benefits is that it aids in the detoxification process. We and our pets live in a very toxic world. There are chemicals and pesticides and preservatives as well as drugs and other toxins in our environment, water and food. Then there are the normal break down products of digestion of foods that occur inside the body.

The liver is the main organ that works in the handling of toxins. Milk Thistle has been shown to protect the liver against damage as well as aid in the repair and regeneration of the liver's cells. Antioxidants are important in these functions and Milk Thistle has antioxidant properties and increases other antioxidants, such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase in the body.

This makes this herb a great choice for any type of liver problem or prevention of any that may occur from toxic or traumatic damage. It has been used for inflammatory liver disease, toxic liver damage, cirrhosis and more.

Milk Thistle also increases bile flow so can help prevent and treat gall bladder stone problems.

Also, Milk Thistle can act as a mild laxative, so may help in constipation problems.

Due to the detoxification effects of this herb, the skin often will do better. The skin is another way that the body will rid itself of toxins, so if relieved of that function, it can be more healthy.

As we all know, or at least suspect, toxins are involved in some cancers. Despite no definite proof, Milk Thistle is possibly able to reduce cancer cell growth or prevent cancer. It has been shown to increase the efficiency of anti-cancer drugs. And most of those being hard on the liver, may help in that respect as well.

So there is the miracle herb, Milk Thistle in a nut shell.

This powerful herb is found in our product Hepato Support and the liquid form of Hepato Support . Hope this information is useful to you and your beloved pets.

Recommended entertainment; Get away from all the screens (computers, TVs, Cell Phones) and take a long walk with your dog (or cat-I walk mine on a lead, well he walks me.)

Until next time,

Dr. Jan
