Milk Thistle is a western herbal medicine that is used to support liver function in adults 18 years and older. In addition Milk Thistle may help to relieve symptoms of digestive disturbance or indigestion, including discomfort following overindulgence.
Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a medicinal plant with a rich history of use which started in the Mediterranean over 2000 years ago.
Today milk thistle is used for its benefits in supporting healthy liver function, detoxification, and healthy digestion.
The active components in milk thistle extracts are a group of chemical compounds collectively known as silymarin. Silybin is considered one of the most active constituents of silymarin.
Silymarin and silybin are antioxidants, in other words, they protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are toxic by-products of oxygen metabolism in living cells. These free radicals can cause damage to living tissues when produced in quantities that exceed the body’s neutralising mechanisms. Stress, medicines, injury, alcohol consumption, and infections can all lead to increased generation of free radicals.
