Milk Thistle and Turmeric are 2 of nature’s most powerful healthy herbs. Milk Thistle was used in ancient medicines for the treatment of disease, and modern medicine supports Milk Thistle supplementation. Conditions such as liver disease, cancer, seasonal allergies, heartburn, and diabetes may all benefit from Milk Thistle supplementation. Turmeric is another traditional herb, commonly used in curries, that has tremendous benefits for human wellness. In Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, Turmeric is used as an anti-inflammatory, to treat liver and gastrointestinal problems, in wound healing, and for the prevention of heart disease and cancer. In short, these two simple ingredients may function as a safety net for numerous ill-health conditions.
Milk Thistle is effective, in part, because it contains a very high concentration of silymarin and silbins. These “silly” compounds reduce harmful free radical production through the inhibition of xanthine oxidase, decrease triglyceride accumulation in fat cells by attenuating the activity of fat-generating enzymes, minimize the amount of acne by maintaining healthy skin cells, and help regenerate new liver tissue by increasing protein synthesis. Turmeric’s most active ingredient is curcumin. Curcumin is another powerful anti-oxidant, which may help control cell growth and/or reproduction, reduce cardiovascular disease risk by improving lipid profiles and maintaining endothelial health, and improve organ health by lowering the activation of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
