What is Milk Thistle?
Milk Thistle is sometimes considered a weed, however in Herbal Medicine it is seen as one of the primary liver tonic herbs available. It has a history of use that appears to date back 2,000 years for conditions that affect the liver and biliary systems.
Milk thistle is used as a general digestive tonic and hepatoprotective medicine. Animal studies have shown that silymarin of milk thistle exerts a liver protective effect against toxins. Milk thistle prevents toxins from entering the liver cells and stimulates the formation of new liver cells. Many studies have shown that milk thistle improved the condition of a liver with alcoholic liver disease. Milk thistle is also used to treat viral hepatitis and jaundice.
Common Names: Milk thistle, Mary thistle, Holy thistle. Milk thistle is sometimes called silymarin, which is actually a mixture of the herb's active components, including silybinin (also called silibinin or silybin).
