The liver performs many
A number of people need chronic medication to manage certain diseases, which can put a strain on your liver.2
Elderly, overweight and obese people are particularly at risk for liver damage, as are those who take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), chronic medication and who have multiple illnesses (such as hypertension and diabetes).2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Legalon® Forte looks after your liver as it contains silymarin, which is the active part of milk thistle extracted from the seed. Silymarin is composed of 6 compounds and Silybin is the one identified in providing its health benefits:7
- Increases the strength of cell walls, making it more difficult for toxins to cross into the cell
- Promotes the breakdown of toxins especially in the liver
- Acts as an anti-oxidant, blocking cell wall damage from free radicals
Silybin has a higher bioavailability than milk thistle. Most studies show the absorption difference between the two is approximately 10:1. This means the health benefits found in 100 mg of silybin is equal to taking 1000 mg of milk thistle.7
Available without a prescription.
