Support Liver Health and Help Detoxify Your Body
TrueMilkThistle™ is designed to help support liver health. This formula includes a high quality milk thistle, containing 80% silymarin, the key active biological compound in milk thistle.
While the liver helps protect you from toxins, milk thistle helps protect the liver from toxins. Milk thistle also promotes new liver cell production.
TrueMilkThistle™ also contains N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), which is a version of the sulfur containing amino acid cysteine. NAC helps replenish glutathione and supports the detoxifying efforts of your liver. NAC also helps regulate inflammation and boost immune system function. Its benefits have been demonstrated in over 30 placebo controlled clinical studies.
Complementing this formula is the SelenoExcell® brand of selenium. It is the “gold standard” in selenium ingredients and fermented from high selenium yeast. Besides being an important antioxidant, selenium is used by your body as a catalyst to produce other antioxidants and enzymes crucial for detoxing and overall health.
When it comes to selenium supplements, the type used matters because there are actually many forms of active selenium molecules used by the body. And SelenoExcell® contains multiple organic selenium compounds, whereas traditional selenium contains only one. This makes SelenoExcell® much more potent and beneficial as an antioxidant.
This is also believed to be why SelenoExcell® has been shown in certain clinical trials to produce results when other forms of selenium don’t.
Euromed: Supplier of the Clinically Researched Milk Thistle
Milk thistle is one of the oldest and most extensively studied plants for liver health.
Most of this research has been done using milk thistle extracts from a company based outside of Barcelona, Spain named Euromed.
Over the last 40 years, Euromed milk thistle has been the subject of approximately 50 research studies. This research has been conducted on a wide range of people with virtually no unwanted side effects reported (it may have a mild laxative effect in some individuals).
Because of their long record of quality and efficacy, we chose to feature Euromed milk thistle in our TrueMilkThistle™ product.
Euromed milk thistle is standardized to contain a minimum 80% silymarin – a mixture of isomers that provide the beneficial health properties from milk thistle.
The raw material to make this ingredient is sourced in Spain and Central Europe using strict selection guidelines. Extraction and final testing is done in Euromed’s Spanish facility in Mollet del Valles (outside of Barcelona).
This facility obtained NSF International certification for utilizing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and Euromed was also awarded "Green" 14001 Certification from ISO, the International Standardization Organization.
This award demonstrates Euromed's dedication to establishing and maintaining sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.
SelenoExcell®: Replicating How Selenium is Found in Food
Selenium is a crucial nutrient for the body. One of its most important functions is helping to produce antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase.
As a part of our natural enzyme system, selenium works to stop free radical production at the cellular level. Many other antioxidants deal with free radicals once they are active – primary antioxidants like selenium prevent free radicals from being produced at the outset.
Most supplements are made with one form of selenium such as selenomethionine. However, selenium in food is actually a cluster of different selenium molecules – which is what your body needs.
And providing multiple forms of selenium is exactly what the yeast derived SelenoExcell® uniquely provides. For example, SelenoExcell® naturally includes selenomethionine, selenocysteine and methylselenocysteine and other forms of selenium.
SelenoExcell® originates from a non-pathogenic, non-GMO Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain. It creates a product that is the closest to food forms of selenium, like what is found in Brazil nuts, eggs, peas, poultry, and meats.
The yeast fermentation process replicates the natural course in which plants absorb and transform minerals from the soil into a more bioavailable form that improves the nutrition and health properties of selenium.
This particular yeast used to make SelenoExcell® is able to accumulate and incorporate selenium into the protein structure. This enhances its antioxidant properties and ability to fight oxidative stress in the body.
What’s more, the selenium in SelenoExcell® is what researchers call organic, meaning it is attached to several amino acids. This factor may make it more bioavailable than other forms found in supplements.
