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.
