Thorne S.A.T. 60 VCaps
A well-researched, standardized botanical extract, milk thistle contains potent antioxidants that can protect liver cells from free radical damage, strengthen liver cell membranes, and help maintain the liver's built-in antioxidant system - glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD). In numerous studies, its active ingredient, silymarin, has been utilized to prevent liver cell damage by carbon tetrachloride, ethanol, acetaminophen, mushroom toxins, and benzopyrene from automobile exhaust. Silymarin has also been shown to help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response. Of the three flavonoids comprising silymarin, silybin predominates and is the most potent. Siliphos provides the benefits of silymarin (flavonoid complex from milk thistle) and phosphatidylcholine in one compound. Siliphos is a phytosome, a water-soluble flavonoid (in this case, silybin) made lipid-friendly by the addition of phosphatidylcholine. This allows for better incorporation of this liver-protective flavonoid into liver cell membranes. Studies indicate the silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex in Siliphos provides superior bioavailability compared to conventional milk thistle products.
Cynara scolymus (artichoke) has a long history of use in hepatic support. Turmeric has been used traditionally in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to support liver function. The primary efficacious agent is the yellow pigment curcumin. Curcumin's hepatoprotective activity is likely due to its strong antioxidant activity and potential to maintain the body's normal inflammatory response. Binding curcumin to the hepatoprotective phospholipid phosphatidylcholine (as Meriva) not only increases bioavailability but enhances its hepatoprotective effects.

Dr. Michael Lebowitz D.C. Recommends:
S.A.T. is a wonderful product for the liver. It is both hepatoprotective and hepatoregenerative and is composed of three herbs:
Silybum marianum (milk thistle) - milk thistle is an incredible herb that prevents glutathione depletion in the liver caused by alcohol, chemicals, etc., inhibits leukotriene and prostaglandin synthesis during inflammation, and prevents free-radical damage, as well as promoting the production of new liver cells to replace older damaged ones (Dr. Michael Lebowitz D.C. finds milk thistle in this form to be more effective than in liquid tincture)
Curcuma longa (Turmeric) - Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory agent (as effective as cortisone in acute inflammation) that prevents increases in SGOT and SGPT (AST, ALT) in inflammation and hepatoprotective effects similar to milk thistle
Cynara scolymus (Artichoke) - Artichoke is another hepatoprotective and hepatoregenerative herb that in some cases has cholesterol-lowering and triglyceride-lowering effects.
