Phytotherapy Research

And by the research I do reading bibliographies to assist me during my illness. I know that it also has its usefulness in the treatment of headaches, neuralgia and some allergic conditions. The modern attention has focused on its protective and regenerative effects of the liver. The modern research confirms this usage. An article published in 1991 in the important Euro magazine notes that milk thistle is undoubtedly the pharmaceutical agent better documented for the treatment of diseases of the liver. Silymarin is the main protective compound in milk thistle liver. This compound mainly present in seeds acts as an antioxidant in cells of the liver protecting them from damage due to free radicals.

Silymarin also increases the liver’s ability to regenerate through the production of new healthy cells. Also It improves the ability of the liver to remove toxins from the body. Numerous studies confirm the beneficial effects of silymarin in cases of chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and fatty degeneration of the liver. The most dramatic effects occur in cases of toxic hepatitis and cirrhosis. According to a study published in October 2006 in the journal Phytotherapy Research, Silymarin also has the ability to help people suffering from diabetes type 2 to control their glucose levels and reduce the level of glycation, i.e.

the amount of hemoglobin that is attached to glucose molecules, this is a harmful process that occurs at high levels and is the cause of many of the complications of this disease in diabetics. The best way to manage the Thistle is through capsules standardized a content of 140 mg of Silymarin. You can start with one capsule twice a day and increase to three times a day if necessary. The te of milk thistle does not seem to be as effective as the capsules since Silymarin is one a substance that does not dissolve very well in water. Because I wanted to with this article, give my testimony of a poisoning that I suffered where liver enzymes went up to a high level, thanks to the milk thistle tablets could restore liver functions, and now everytime I do natural treatments or I have to eat antibiotics, treatment for ten days taking these natural tablets to detoxify the liver, which is a vital organ that everyone should appreciate much by its important role. It is not a prescription check with your doctor if you have questions about what you explain, but is sold without a prescription in all pharmacies and can read the bottle.
