How it works

Ursodeoxycholic Acid / Ursodiol is a hepatoprotective drug. It makes the condition better by reducing the amount of cholesterol in the blood and helps dissolve gall bladder stones that are composed mainly of cholesterol. It also improves liver enzymes, protects liver cells from ile acids, and improves liver function.
Silymarin is an active principle obtained from milk thistle seed (Silybum marianum) . It might protect liver cells from toxic chemicals and drugs. It also seems to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Milk thistle plant extract might enhance the effects of estrogen..
