Standardized grass of High Power - Extract of Grass of Thistle Maria
(Silybum marianum). Each vegicaps contains 175 mg of standardized
extract of seed-grass (80% silimarina) and 300 mg of dust. Dosage:
Both presentations: Like herbario supplement for the feeding from
adults, 1 to 3 vegicaps to the day, preferredly with the meals or
according to indication of the specialist.
- Protective hepático. In tests in vitro on hepatocitos it has been
verified that the silimarina presents/displays a protective effect
front to tetracloruro of carbon or toxins like the phalloides
faloidina of Amanita.
This effect seems to be due to an alteration of the membrane
permeability, preventing the access of toxins to the interior of the
cells. On the other hand the silibinina diminishes the activity of the
cells of Kupffer (diminishing the production of radicals superoxide,
nitric oxide and leucotrienos) and the production of glutation,
diminishing in addition its oxidation.
The silimarina acts in tests in vitro like hepático regenerator. The
activity of the RNA increases the protein synthesis in the hepatocito
when stimulating polymerase I.
- Antiinflammatory. The silimarina exerts an inhibiting effect on the
synthesis of leucotrienos by inhibition of 5-lipooxigenasa (5-LOX).
- Hipolipemiante. Hipolipemiante effect has been verified also for the
silimarina in tests on certain rat, diminishing the cholesterol
content in liver and increasing c-HDL.
