At ProBLEN we work with top formulators to create the best supplements combinations for your body. One of our favorite ingredients is Carduus Marianus, or Milk Thistle, which we love for its ability to reduce inflammation, detoxify the liver and spleen, and provide the body with very potent antioxidants.
How Milk Thistle Can Help
Milk Thistle has a major effect on a number of vital body functions:
Stimulates the liver and gallbladder and aids bile flow.
Encourages bowel movement and removes attendant toxicity.
Clears the kidneys, promoting better urination.
Improves the functioning of the liver, thereby helping to clear skin.
Helps soften kidney stones and gallstones
Alleviates painful menstruation and is an invaluable all-round pre-menstrual herb.
Many conditions that benefit from Milk Thistle are 'diseases of civilization', such as symptoms of a sluggish and unresponsive liver, which are frequently induced by a stressful lifestyle that puts additional pressure upon the liver by loading it with toxins. Coffee, alcohol, junk food, prescription drugs (particularly analgesics, anti-depressants and tranquillizers, which are taken as an antidote to many of these ailments but instead exacerbate them), environmental chemicals and pollutants, vegetables sprayed with pesticides, smoking, excessive quantities of red meat and fatty foods may all increase the risk of liver damage.
Eliminating these causative factors, while using Milk Thistle as a backup treatment for the liver, will help restore health and protect against future damage.
A few of our most popular supplements contain Carduus Marianus: Testosterone, Multi Plus Multi-vitamin
, and Adrenal & DHEA
. So what’s so special about this weedy looking plant? The seeds contain silymarin, which protects and regenerates the liver. Milk Thistle has no known adverse effects on the body. We use Carduus Mar for the specific supplements that can be further aided by adding a detoxifying or anti-inflammatory ingredient. It is just one more little thing we combine with our top-notch supplements for total body health!
