Part 1

Milk Thistle Seed Extract


Some of you are into taking steroids that could be harmful to your internal organs. In the category of toxic side effects of steroids, the potential effects on the liver is the most apparent. Unfortunately, the side effects can manifest themselves in many dysfunction's in the liver. Here are some of the side effects.

1. Cholastasis - bile obstruction in the liver.

2. Peliosis Hepatitis - Bloodfilled cavities in the liver tissue, cysts

3. Liver Cancer

Now most of the time, these symptoms can show up on patients that have a history of long-time steroid use. Sometimes the symptoms can appear on patients that had prior diseases such as alcoholism, hepatitis, etc. then foregone a lengthy time of steroid use. Most of the patients that suffered liver damage due to the use of steroids was almost exclusively due to the use of the 17-alpha-alkylated, oral steroids. These steroids would be primarily oxymetholone, methandieone, and methyltestosterone.

So if you plan on using Dianabol, Anadrol or Methyl-Test, then please take time outs between cycles to give your liver a break. Another fantastic idea is to introduce Milk Thistle Seed Extract in your daily intake. Milk Thistle Seed Extract or Cardus marianus is extremely popular in Europe as a tonic for the liver. This herb contains a flavenoid called Silymarin that has shown to have a direct effect on liver cells. Known as Vitamin P, flavenoids are substances found in plants and often work in conjunction with Vitamin C and offer many other health benefits. Numerous European studies show that this herb enhances overall liver function, as well as stimulates the production of new liver cells. The liver is the second largest organ in our body. It is often referred to as the body's "chemical factory". The liver plays a critical role in maintaining good health. It produces bile, which is necessary for the breakdown of fats. It detoxifies poisons and pollutants such as carbon monoxide: It breaks them down from potentially lethal substances into those that are less destructive to our bodies. It also detoxifies poisons that enter our bloodstream, such as nicotine, alcohol and other pollutants.

Milk Thistle Seed Extract is sold at most health food stores. One of the best brands out there is "Natures Fingerprint". It can be purchased at your local GNC. A bottle contains 90 capsules. Each capsule contains 200mg of Milk Thistle Seed Extract. Each dose has 80% Silymarin. The ideal dose is 1 capsule, 3X daily. The price is between $13.00 to $17.00 per bottle.

Bottom line: Make the small investment. Especially if you are taking any oral steroids. Its a small price to pay to keep your liver and your health in optimal shape.
