Milk thistle, organically grown and wildcrafted in Europe and South America, is a safe, natural liver detoxifier and antioxidant, protecting the liver from poisons and pollutants. Milk thistle contains bioflavonoids that encourage liver cells to regenerate (or self repair) in order to efficiently cleanse the blood of toxins and metabolic waste.
The milk thistle extract in Greens+® is 85.6% Silymarin, a mixture of bioflavonoids that help enhance liver function, stimulate liver protein synthesis and inhibit free radicals that cause hepatic damage. There is 60mg of Milk Thistle per serving of Greens+.
