  • alcohol is one of the best known toxins that damages the liver and large amounts creates extreme oxidative stress on liver tissue. Significant alcohol consumption produces accumulations of fat in liver cells, with small areas of dead tissue, accompanied by a rise in liver enzymes in the blood (from leaking, dying cells)

 

  • studies have shown supplementation with silymarin can prevent all of these adverse alcohol-induced changes. In the brain oxidative stress is caused by by-products of reactions involving oxygen and the breakdown of ethanol within the cell metabolism [2]

 

  • silymarin is also thought to protect the brain due to the role it plays in protecting cells from oxidative stress

Ever wondered what alcohol does to your brain?

Alcohol can often lead to a somewhat drastic loss of inhibitions, causing some drinkers to be a little emotional, overindulgent, and uncharacteristically adventurous while under the influence.
