Milk Thistle Formulation

Detoxification in the liver consists of two phases, by which the liver conjugates toxins and metabolites in order to prepare them for safe elimination from the body. Phase I consists of oxidation reactions, while phase II consists of conjugation. Phase I results in the creation of more reactive products, while phase II soaks up these molecules and transforms them to safe metabolites through conjugation reactions (involving attachment of glucuronic acid, sulfate, or glycine to form water-soluble compounds).
The herbs in Vitazan Professional’s Milk Thistle Formulation aid this process. Silymarin protects the liver cells from known toxins such as alcohol and acetaminophen poisoning, as well as from the free radicals generated by phase‑I detoxification. Silymarin acts as an antioxidant and stabilizes cell membranes. Secondly, silymarin, curcumin, and alpha‑lipoic acid upregulate conjugation reactions, facilitating the safe elimination of toxins.
Finally, in addition to hepatoprotective and cholagogue effects, herbs such as Silybum, Taraxacum, and oriental radish have mild laxative effects. This means they promote bowel regularity to ensure efficient bowel elimination of the toxins that the liver has already processed and excreted into the bile. Regular bowel function is a MUST for effective detoxification!
