Natural Liver Support, Digestive Help and Immune Booster

250 mg of Non-GMO Milk Thistle Seed extract (80% Silymarin) in Vegan Capsules

The liver is a hard-working filter of toxins and no-good gunk that makes its way into our bodies. It’s also a drug metabolizer, gas tank for energy and enzyme manufacturer. Prescription medications, including antibiotics, can drag our liver down.1 So can bottomless margaritas (no judgement!) and processed foods.

Even if you eat raw, organic and vegan, you can’t avoid toxicity from pollution including mercury and arsenic. They are in the air, water and soil; no matter how clean our diet, we’re ingesting toxins.2,3

When our toxic load is too high, milk thistle seed has been shown to work as a gentle, natural way to clean and protect the liver, support digestion and boost immunity.4-6 The active ingredient in Milk Thistle seed is Silymarin, a flavonoid that has been shown to protect against diseases caused by oxidative stress.7,8

Each serving of Nested Naturals Milk Thistle includes 250 mg of pure milk thistle extract with 80% Silymarin flavonoids. Grinding up the seeds into a powder doesn’t yield very much of the active ingredient, but it’s an easy and cheap process. That’s why so many herbal supplements use powder forms. We buck the trend and use a standardized extraction process that allows us to guarantee that you are getting a concentration of the good stuff. Because you’re looking for more than an herbal placebo, right?

Nested Naturals Milk Thistle gives you a gentle dose of nature’s own herbal detoxifier. You can count on our formulation to give you only the good stuff; it’s vegan, non-GMO, cruelty-free and third-party tested to guarantee purity.
