Lagosa by Wörwag, Germany 50x 150 mg caps
Lagosa Milk Thistle is unique in its ability to protect the liver and has no counterpart in the pharmaceutical industry. Milk thistle is the most effective therapeutic choice in cases of Amanita mushroom poisoning, which destroys the liver. It has been so spectacularly effective that the therapy has not been called into question, even by the established medical community.
Silymarin is the primary energy component of milk thistle. Silymarin has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It’s unclear what benefits, if any, this might have on the body.
Milk thistle is occasionally used as a natural liver treatment. Cirrhosis, jaundice, hepatitis, and gallbladder disorders are examples of liver ailments. According to some, milk thistle may also: Provide heart benefits by lowering cholesterol levels—diabetes treatment for those with type 2 diabetes with cirrhosis. Reduce the proliferation of cancer cells in breast, cervical, and prostate malignancies.
Alcohol-related liver disease
A comprehensive review conducted by the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently discovered sixteen medical studies on using milk thistles to treat various types of liver disease. The majority of the experiments employed a European standardized milk thistle extract. Problems with the study design (such as a small number of participants, variances in the causes of liver illness, and changes in dosing and duration of milk thistle cure) made it difficult to draw solid findings. However, five of seven studies evaluating milk thistle for alcoholic liver disease discovered significant improvements in liver function. Those with the mildest form of the illness were thought to improve the most. Milk thistle was substantially less effective in people with severe liver disease and cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is distinguished by scarring and permanent, irreversible damage to the liver. It is commonly referred to as an end-stage liver disease.
Even though milk thistle is commonly used in the treatment of hepatitis (particularly hepatitis C), the outcomes of four viral hepatitis studies were conflicting. Some people noticed improvements in their liver enzyme activity, while others did not. None of the trials compared milk thistle to interferon or other medications for viral hepatitis.
Preliminary laboratory investigations also suggest that the energetic components in milk thistle may have anti-cancer properties. One active ingredient, silymarin, has strong antioxidant effects and has been found to prevent the growth of human prostate, breast, and cervical cancer cells in test tubes. More research is needed to determine whether milk thistle is safe and beneficial for humans with those types of cancer.
One animal study discovered that silymarin (an active ingredient in milk thistle) worked just as well as the cholesterol-lowering medication probucol, with the bonus of significantly boosting HDL (“good”) cholesterol. More human research is required.
For most adults, milk thistle is LIKELY SAFE. Milk thistle has a laxative effect on occasion. Other uncommon adverse effects include nausea, diarrhoea, indigestion, intestinal gasoline, bloating, fullness or pain, and a loss of appetite. Precautions and Warnings: Breast-feeding and pregnancy: The use of milk thistle during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not well understood. To be on the safe side, avoid using. Allergy to ragweed and related plant life: Milk thistle can cause a hypersensitive reaction in persons allergic to the Asteraceae/Compositae plant family. Ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, and many other plants are members of this family. If you have a history of allergic reactions, consult your doctor before taking milk thistle. Hormone-sensitive conditions such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: Milk thistle PLANT extracts may behave like estrogen. Avoid using these extracts if you have a condition that could be exacerbated by estrogen exposure. The more regularly used milk thistle SEED extracts do not appear to behave like estrogen.
