Protecting the liver with milk thistle
Indeed, the liver is very resilient, but when alcohol, overweight, medicaments, pollutants or infections strain too much, fatty liver, inflammation, cirrhosis or cancer of the liver can be the consequences.
Tiredness, itching, feeling of pressure in the upper abdomen, weight changes and changes of stool/urine/skin/eyes in terms of colour are signs for a damage of the liver.
Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a medicinal plant with liver-protecting properties. Cefasilymarin contains an extract from milk thistle fruits and is used as supportive protecting agent in case of liver damages and for the activation of the self-healing power of the liver.
