Silymarin (Silybum marianum), also known as Milk Thistle, is an herb that is well-documented in early traditional herbal medicine.  Studies abroad and in the U.S. have indicated that constituents in Silymarin may help to support healthy liver function. Europeans were among the first to use milk thistle seeds as an herbal treatment for liver disorders, but the plant's medicinal capabilities have been known since ancient times.

Clinical research has confirmed the mechanisms of action and therapeutic value of silymarin in a wide range liver and non-liver-related conditions in humans. There are hundreds of modern research studies that have confirmed the remarkable ability of milk thistle to protect the liver and the body against virtually all types of damage. Milk thistle extract is used to maintain liver health and to protect the liver from the effects of toxins such as alcohol, the polluted environment, and many liver related diseases.

In today's world, silymarin is still one of the most commonly used medicinal plants in the world and is also the number one recommended natural herb for liver health. In Europe, milk thistle is actually a prescribed medication. The milk thistle extract is prescribed to treat mushroom poisoning, alcoholic cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis, drug and alcohol induced liver damage, acute viral hepatitis, and many others.

Health Conditions aided by silymarin include Alcoholic cirrhosis, Chronic active hepatitis and acute viral hepatitis, liver damage caused by drugs and alcohol, Fatty liver and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, Fibrosis and Cirrhosis, Environmental toxins, and other medical conditions.  It can also lower cholesterol levels, which benefits the heart, work as a free radical scavenger and powerful antioxidant, improve blood sugar levels, and contains numerous anti-aging properties.
