GLOSSARY
MILK THISTLE SEED EXTRACT (ST MARY'S THISTLE / SILYBUM MARIANUM)

Milk Thistle Seed Extract (St Mary's Thistle / Silybum marianum)

 

How does it work?

Milk thistle seed is a western herbal medicine used for its liver protective and restorative actions as well as being a potent antioxidant.1 This is due to containing several flavanolignans, collectively known as silymarin, which have been studied for their role in liver health.2 Milk thistle helps protect liver cells against the damaging effects of alcohol and some drugs as well as encourage the production and flow of bile to assist with digesting dietary fats.3 Milk thistle has been shown to be a supportive treatment in chronic liver disorders, alcoholic liver disease, liver cirrhosis, fatty liver and hepatitis C, helping to restore damaged liver cells and protect them from further damage.4

What results can be expected?

Milk thistle may help improve digestion, liver detoxification and liver cell protection especially where there has been consumption of alcohol or drugs.5 It has also been shown to assist in lowering LDL and raising HDL cholesterol in the body.6
