Beyond the Liver: Milk Thistle’s 4 Extra Benefits

Nicole Cutler L.Ac. February 1, 2016

Offering a substantial list of advantages to Hepatitis C patients, find out how milk thistle provides assistance to the entire body.

Silymarin is a dynamic extract, far surpassing a unilateral health benefit. These two all-natural formulas that include silymarin provide comprehensive support for these common Hepatitis C concerns:

  • Toxin Accumulation – When liver function declines, toxins can build up in the blood – increasing the risk of neurological impairment and skin itching. Natural Wellness’ Liver Support & Detox is a comprehensive liver support formula (including milk thistle) that helps keep the blood free of toxicity.
  • Healthy Blood – Studies show that those with chronic liver disease often develop portal hypertension and/or insulin resistance. Natural Wellness’ UltraNourish is a superfood shake (including milk thistle) that supports liver health and promotes healthy blood sugar levels and healthy blood cholesterol levels.

If you have Hepatitis C, supplementing with milk thistle is likely doing more for you than just protecting and supporting your liver. Whether the effects are direct or indirect, milk thistle provides benefits to the brain, skin and blood composition – as well as the liver – improving justification for including silymarin in your Hepatitis C wellness plan.

      I also took Milk Thistle for year with cirrhosis and found it caused me to have low platelets …My doctors recommended I do not use it… I also called the Milk Thistle co. and they would not tell me one way or the other is it was true..I guess it was true.
