Since the middle ages, Milk thistle plant has been used as a tonic for the stomach, gallbladder, spleen, and especially the liver.
Milk thistle contains three potent flavonoids: silybin, silydianin and silychristin, collectively known as silymarin.
Numerous studies have been conducted on Silymarin due to its apparent ability to not only protect the liver, but to actually help regenerate damaged liver cells. It is also valued for its ability to promote the flow of bile, which aids in digestion.
Silymarin appears to function by displacing toxins that are trying to bind to the liver as well as by causing the liver to regenerate quickly.
Silymarin also inhibits inflammatory enzymes, and alters liver cell membranes to make them resistant to the entrance of toxins.
Silymarin protects the liver as an antioxidant (it is more potent than Vitamin E) by increasing glutathione levels, and by inhibiting the formation of damaging chemicals.
