SILYBUM MARIANUM SEED OIL
The milk thistle comes from the warm countries around the Mediterranean and Asia Minor, but in sunny and nutrient-rich places it also thrives here.
For the milk thistle oil, the mature oil-bearing seeds are pressed from controlled organic cultivation and fractionated into presscake.
Characteristics and subtances:
Milk thistle oil has more than 85% of unsaturated fatty acids, with linoleic acid (omega-6) accounting for more than 50%.
In milk thistle oil itself, only a small amount of silymarin is present.
Silymarin can be extracted from the seeds of the milk thistle.
Silymarin is a complex of four different flavonolignans; it catches free radicals that become free in liver detoxification.
Milk thistle oil has a mild taste and is good for refining ready meals and for salads.
Store in a cool and dark area.
