Milk Thistle Info

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is regarded by herbalists as one of the primary liver tonic herbs. A flowering plant that grows worldwide, its seeds have been used medicinally for thousands of years. The seeds contain silymarin, a powerful antioxidant flavonoid complex, which can repair and regenerate damaged liver cells. It also inhibits fibrosis, making it valuable in prevention of cirrhosis.

Milk Thistle Benefits

Milk thistle can improve liver and gall bladder function, aid bile flow and protect the liver from free radical damage due to environmental toxins, pollution, stress and excess dietary fats.

Milk thistle aids both digestive and reproductive function through improved detoxification and elimination. It counteracts the effects of overindulging in food and alcohol and supports the body’s response to food intolerances.

Hepatitis, chronic liver disease, gallbladder disease and jaundice are all indications for milk thistle. It helps soften kidney stones and gallstones. Skin conditions related to poor liver function, such as psoriasis, can be improved with milk thistle. In vitro studies also indicate an anti-cancer effect.

Milk Thistle Side Effects

Safe to use as directed with no toxic effects. Short term effects of detoxification such as slight nausea, headache, skin rash or mild diarrhoea may occur.
