Solgar® Milk Thistle and Dandelion Complex is one of Solgar's premium-quality herbal formulas. Milk Thistle is native to the Mediterranean and is a member of the same family as sunflowers and daisies. It gets its name from the milky-white liquid that runs off the leaves when they are crushed.
The liver is the key organ for detoxifying the body and as a result, is under constant pressure. Not only does the liver detoxify and eliminate substances naturally produced in the body, but in our modern world, it must deal with environmental pollution chemicals from food as well as liver toxins such as alcohol and drugs.
Milk Thistle Dandelion Complex supports healthy liver cells and normal liver function and helps to counter over-indulgence from food and alcohol.
Milk Thistle contains a group of flavonoids collectively called silymarin. It has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to detoxify the body and liver, as it has strong antioxidant properties, countering the effect of over-indulgence of food and drink.
The most commonly utilised part of Dandelion is the root; however, the leaves are often eaten raw in salads or lightly brewed to make tea. Dandelions contain sesquiterpene lactones, phytochemical compounds that are unique to this plant.
