What is Milk Thistle Extract produced in Hunan NutraMax Inc?
Silymarin is a unique flavonoid complex—containingsilybin, silydianin, and silychrisin—that is derived from the milk thistleplant.
Poor water solubility and bioavailability of silymarinled to the development of enhanced formulations. a new complex of silybin andnatural phospholipids was developed. This improved product is known by the nameof Silyphos. By complexing silybin with phospholipids, scientists were able tomake silybin into a much more soluble and better-absorbed form. Thissilybin/phospholipid complex (Silyphos) was found to have significantlyimproved bioavailability, up to ten times better absorption, and greatereffectiveness.

Formany centuries extracts of milk thistle have been recognized as "livertonics." Research into the biological activity of silymarin and itspossible medical uses has been conducted in many countries since the 1970s, butthe quality of the research has been uneven. Milk thistle has been reported tohave protective effects on the liver and to greatly improve its function. It is typicallyused to treat livercirrhosis,chronic hepatitis (liver inflammation), toxin-induced liver damageincluding the prevention of severe liver damage from Amanita phalloides ('death cap' mushroom poisoning), and gallbladder disorders.
Reviewsof the literature covering clinical studies of silymarin vary in theirconclusions. A review using only studies with both double-blind and placebo protocols concluded that milk thistle and itsderivatives "does not seem to significantly influence the course ofpatients with alcoholic and/or hepatitis B or C liver diseases." Adifferent review of the literature, performed for the U. S. Department ofHealth and Human Services, found that, while there is strong evidence oflegitimate medical benefits, the studies done to date are of such uneven designand quality that no firm conclusions about degrees of effectiveness forspecific conditions or appropriate dosage can yet be made.
Use as food:
Aroundthe 16th century the milk thistle became quite popular and almost all parts ofit were eaten. The roots can be eaten raw or boiled and buttered or par-boiledand roasted. The young shoots in spring can be cut down to the root and boiledand buttered. The spiny bracts on the flower head were eaten in the past likeglobe artichoke, and the stems (after peeling) can be soaked overnight toremove bitterness and then stewed. The leaves can be trimmed of prickles andboiled and make a good spinach substitute or they can also be added raw tosalads.
