Silymarin is the name – and it can help remove and heavy metals and strengthen your liver.
Silymarin is a potent bioflavonoid found in the herb Milk Thistle. It has been studied extensively and has been conclusively shown to protect the liver against numerous toxins, including heavy metals. It also stimulates the growth of liver cells and has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
New research shows that this miracle of nature can also benefit those with Type II diabetes.
In a study published in Phytotherapy Research, 51 adults with Type II diabetes were given either 200 mg of silymarin or a placebo three times per day. During the four-month study, the average fasting blood glucose level of the silymarin group fell 15 percent, compared to an increase of 13 percent in the placebo group. In addition, the triglyceride levels of the treated group dropped by 25 percent, while those of the placebo group increased by 12 percent.
There are a number of highly effective nutritional supplements - such as chromium, cinnamon, and magnesium - that can help improve blood sugar control. You can add silymarin to that list.
