Milk Thistle is one of the most widely used herbs. Milk thistle's main active ingredient is a flavonoid called silymarin‚ an antioxidant which is believed to protect liver cells from toxins‚ particularly lipid peroxidation‚ and helps to detoxify alcohol‚ drugs‚ and other chemical toxins. Silymarin promotes liver cell protein synthesis‚ decreases the oxidation of glutathione‚ and assists in the regeneration of glutathione and restoration of cellular thiol status.
There are many compounds in milk thistle‚ mostly flavonoids‚ including silymarin‚ silybin‚ isosilybin‚ and silibinin. Studies show silymarin‚ silibinin‚ silibinin and other flavonoids found in milk thistle may support healthy detoxification during a number of conditions including alcoholic cirrhosis and tumors.
