Siliphos®️: How It Benefits Your Liver and Overall Health

Silybin is a major active constituent of milk thistle extract, and Siliphos® is a highly bioavailable version of this. It has been shown to be ten times more absorbable than generic milk thistle extracts. This is great news for liver health. Silybin, and therefore Siliphos®, are proven to be beneficial in support of liver health and function.

What Is Siliphos?

Silybin, the primary bioactive ingredient of Siliphos®, is a flavonoid that has been linked to numerous health benefits. In particular, this ingredient is linked to enhanced liver function and protection against liver disease. Silybin is poorly absorbed by the body unless it is accompanied by some form of fat. 

Siliphos® is a highly effective combination of silybin and phosphatidylcholine, which works to support liver health. Milk thistle has been used traditionally for centuries to treat cirrhosis, jaundice, hepatitis, and gallbladder disorders. The effectiveness of milk thistle is due to the silybin, and with Siliphos®, you will get the most effective results. 

Siliphos®️ for Your Liver

Milk thistle is a well-known treatment option for liver disease. Used for over 2,000 years, this plant’s ability to protect the liver has been extensively researched. It was used by ancient Romans to treat toxins in the body and liver ailments. The active ingredient, silybin, has been identified as the most beneficial for liver health. 

The silybin used in Siliphos® has a higher bioavailability than milk thistle extract, making it even more effective for treating liver problems and boosting function. It helps your liver in each of the following ways:

Increased Strength of Cell Walls

Silybin increases the strength of liver cells, making it more difficult for toxins to cross into the cell. Everything you consume gets filtered through the liver, and unnatural substances can slowly fill your liver with harmful toxins. The more of these toxins you consume, the worse it can get. With added strength, the cell walls are impermeable to these toxins, and your liver is protected. 

Antioxidant Protection

The presence of toxins, and the process of filtering these from the blood, increases the risk of oxidative stress around the liver. Oxidative damage increases inflammation, and together these increase the risk of liver disease. Silybin is a potent antioxidant that can protect the liver cells from free radical damage. 

Toxin Breakdown

Silybin helps support liver function by promoting toxin breakdown. This process, known as conjugation involves the substance or toxin, being broken down into compounds soluble enough to be excreted through urine. Without this process, toxins can accumulate in the liver and bloodstream, increasing the risk of disease. 

Possible Cancer Treatment

Recent studies have shown that silybin may have possible benefits for cancer patients. While it is not a treatment to replace cancer therapy, silybin can decrease the toxicity of the treatment and slow cancer growth. The percentage of liver cancer diagnoses has been increasing. Siliphos® can help promote healthy liver cells, so they can better fight cancer. 

Additional Health Benefits of Siliphos®️ 

In addition to supporting liver health, Siliphos®️ provides benefits to several other systems in your body. The antioxidant properties of Siliphos®️ allow it to support immune health, heart health, cognitive function, and bone health. 

Heart Health

High cholesterol is one of the leading causes of heart disease and significantly increases the risk of stroke. Milk thistle has been found in studies to lower cholesterol levels. The more efficient absorption of Siliphos®️ means that your heart can be better protected against heart disease. 

Diabetes Support

Lowering cholesterol also helps those with diabetes. Individuals with diabetes have a greater chance of developing heart disease, and Siliphos®️ can reduce cholesterol to reduce this risk. Additionally, it can help to reduce insulin resistance, which can support diabetes management. 

Cognitive Function

The antioxidant properties of Siliphos®️ help increase resistance to oxidative stress. The damage of free radicals is linked to cognitive decline and a potential cause of Alzheimer’s disease. The highly absorbable ingredients in Siliphos®️ can be a natural way to improve cognitive function and reduce the risk of neurodegeneration. 

Immune Health

By reducing oxidative damage, Siliphos®️ helps support and enhance immune function. Oxidative stress triggers inflammation, which is a major cause of chronic illness. Milk thistle has also been used for centuries to help strengthen the immune system, reducing the risk of infection and the duration of any symptoms. 

Bone Health

Silybin has been found to help prevent bone loss. Studies involving bone loss as a result of estrogen deficiency found that this milk thistle component can be used to reduce bone loss. As part of a regular routine, Siliphos®️ may be able to support aging bone health. 

Taking Siliphos®️

Siliphos®️ has proved highly safe and effective for use as a liver supplement when taken at doses carrying at least 160 mg of its main bioactive ingredient silybin. An effective dose of Siliphos®️ will contain 30% silybin. It is important to speak with your doctor regarding a safe daily dosage.

Possible Side Effects and Warnings

Milk thistle and Siliphos®️ are considered safe for consumption, but there can be side effects. Side effects are most common with excessive consumption and can include:

♦ Indigestion and bloating
♦ Abdominal pain
Diarrhea
Loss of appetite
♦ Nausea
♦ Itching

Some people can have allergic reactions to milk thistle. Seek emergency help if you experience hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face, mouth, or throat. Always consult your doctor before starting a supplement, as milk thistle can interact with some medications.

The Bottom Line

Your liver plays several important roles in the body. It is highly susceptible to inflammation and oxidative stress as a result of its detoxification duties. Siliphos®️ is an effective ingredient in protecting the liver and enhancing function. Siliphos®️ also boosts immunity, heart health, cognitive health, and much more. Whether you call it milk thistle, silybin, or Siliphos®️, what matters is that your liver will be thankful you have it.
