It aids digestion, helps the body detox better, and has beneficial effects on the heart. Dandelion root works in synergy with these effects and enhances them.

Ideal composition

The blend consists of a milk thistle extract, with a silymarin concentration of 80%, an optimum concentration (based on our experience) for addressing liver issues; a 30% reishi extract and dandelion root extract whose effects suitably complement the blend.

Milk thistle has excellent antioxidant and hepatoprotective effects. Silymarin, the main active substance, promotes normal liver function, as well as the detoxification/cleansing and regeneration of the liver. It aids digestion and helps the body detox better, thereby supporting natural immunity. It has beneficial effects on heart function and blood sugar levels.

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum), a lovely flower that grows almost two meters tall, is in fact an ordinary thistle. Other common names include “Saint Mary’s thistle” and “Marian thistle”. Its extract was used for treating almost all problems related to the abdominal cavity as early as the very beginning of medicine, and became a standard ingredient in brews and tinctures which treated all kinds of liver issues.

Silymarin, a flavonolignan, is milk thistle’s active substance – a mixture of silybin, silydianin, and silicristin. It’s most highly concentrated in the seeds, followed by the leaves or root. Soaking the plant in water releases little silymarin which is why it’s preferable to use milk thistle as an extract.

Nowadays, when our liver is burdened with our bad lifestyle and omnipresent chemicals, people are re-discovering milk thistle’s beneficial effects, especially its ability to detoxify liver tissue.

The effects of milk thistle are synergistically enhanced by the added extracts of dandelion root and the Reishi mushroom. Dandelion has a beneficial effect on liver and gall bladder function – it improves the production of gastric acid and purifies the stomach. Reishi has strong vitalising effects, activates immune responses, promotes normal circulatory function, and maintains normal cholesterol levels.
