Legalon® (MZ 80) is specifically clinically proven to help maintain healthy liver function. Legalon contains the patented extract of Silybum marianum (Milk thistle) that was developed by the German herbal medicine manufacturer Madaus in 1968. It is a benchmark product and the majority of published clinical research on silymarin has used Legalon.
Legalon has been specifically clinically proven to improve and maintain healthy liver function.
Clinical trials have demonstrated that Legalon has the following actions:
- Hepatoprotective: supporting the liver against toxins and aiding normal regeneration of liver cells
- Exerts an anti-inflammatory effect
- Stimulates protein synthesis and cell regeneration
- Aids healthy detoxification and elimination processes
Legalon is well tolerated and has no notable side effects. It has been shown to provide excellent results in a number of large-scale studies – including one involving over 200 participants – with a very low incidence of side effects. Legalon has an excellent safety profile and has no known drug interactions.
Legalon capsules contain a specific extract of Silybum marianum (MZ 80) that is the benchmark silymarin product worldwide. The majority of published clinical research on silymarin has used Legalon and this research cannot be extrapolated to other silymarin products. Using a patented co-precipitation process, Madaus ensure Legalon capsules are highly bioavailable, an ongoing challenge with other silymarin products. Legalon capsules are absorbed four times greater than other silymarin products.
Legalon is specifically clinically proven, meaning that it is the exact product that has been used in clinical trials. This is very important for natural medicine as there can be great variance between products, even if they appear to use the same active ingredients, due to the plant that is used, growing methods, harvesting processes and manufacturing methods. The outcomes of clinical studies for natural medicines can therefore only apply to the exact product that has been tested.
Legalon capsules are easy to take and well tolerated.
Adults: 1 capsule three times a day
