Milk Thistle: The active ingredient in Milk Thistle is silymarin which has long been recognized for its ability to benefit liver disorders, including hepatitis and cirrhosis, and protect the liver from poisons and toxins. Milk Thistle also increases the regenerative ability of damaged liver cells.
The liver has many functions in addition to processing the blood breaking down fats, producing urea, and filtering harmful substances in order to maintain a proper level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. The liver produces many substances (synthesis) and maintains the balance in the body of many nutrients (homeostasis). Our bodies make many waste products (e.g., bilirubin – the degradation product of our blood) which can only be excreted by the liver (excretory function). The liver plays a central role in the detoxification of drugs, chemicals, and heavy metals; substances are taken up by the liver, degraded and excreted. The liver is also an important player in our defense mechanisms.
The metabolic activities of the liver are:
fat and cholesterol
vitamins, particularly the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E
proteins including the clotting factors
bile acids (important in fat digestion)
cholesterol, bile acids, phospholipids
poisons (e.g. pesticides, insecticides, heavy metals such as graphene oxide)
poisons from the gut
nutrients such as amino acids, sugar and fat
bilirubin, bile acids
Excretion of IgA (defense against bacteria in the gut)
Special macrophages (Kupffer cells) eat up any bacteria that have crossed from the gut into the blood. Macrophage means “big eater” and so they are!
