UltraThistle is one of the key elements of the Hepatitis C protocol
being studied at the Bastyr
University Research Institute (sponsored
by the NIH/NCCAM).
This key element is Siliphos®, exactly as found in UltraThistle™.
High potency UltraThistle™ is specifically prescribed by
Standish, ND, PhD, Senior Research Scientist and director of
Hepatitis C Clinic.
UltraThistle™ supercharges the absorption of the most beneficial
component of milk thistle and exponentially increases its ability
to reach and protect liver cells.
Using supercharged absorption for greatest effectiveness, UltraThistle™
gets 8 to 10 times more silybin to your liver than any common 80%
standardized milk thistle extract.
The following chart of clinical study results accurately represents
the superior systemic delivery of silybin when administered as part
of Siliphos® versus 80% standardized silymarin or pure silybin.
Notice how much more silybin reaches the bloodstream, and therefore
the liver, when absorption is supercharged by the patented Phytosome®
Michael Murray, ND, talks about this increased effectiveness
in the following excerpt from an article about Phytosomes®:
“... Although silymarin is quite effective clinically, it
is not very bioavailable. In contrast, binding one molecule of silybin
with two molecules of phosphatidylcholine in the Phytosome®
process creates a highly bioavailable new form. The Phytosome®
form is far superior to simple silybin every respect.”

Alschuler, ND, wrote the following about the Phytosome®
form of milk thistle extract in an article entitled, "Milk
Thistle: Goals and Objectives"
"...eight men and women with viral chronic hepatitis B or
C were treated with a silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex for two
months. According to the authors of the study, this lipophilic complex
has demonstrated superior bioavailability compared to silymarin
complex alone... The authors concluded that this complex may effectively
improve hepatic function in patients with chronic active hepatitis..."
