Milk thistle, scientifically known as Silybum marianum, is renowned for its liver protective and digestion aiding activities and has been used for its detoxifying and restorative properties for over 2000 years. However, there is so much more to this plant that gets its characteristic name from the milky- white secretion that squirts from its crushed leaves that it would be a pity if it is only seen as a liver tonic. In fact, it is now considered so therapeutically versatile that it has become one of the most studied plants for its effect on the liver, heart, kidney, gall bladder, and skin.

What is Milk Thistle Made up of?

The main active constituent in Silybum marianum is silymarin, a collective of flavonoids and flavonolignans. These components lend silybum its proposed therapeutic benefits, which include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, rejuvenative, tonic, hepatoprotective, hypolipidemic, and renal protective properties.

How Does Milk Thistle aid the Body?

  • Rejuvenates  the Liver

Our liver is the biggest processor in our body and performs a number of detoxifying functions. It is involved in cleansing our blood, flushing accumulated toxins, supporting hormone production, releasing glucose to give our body steady energy and bile for fat absorption. Milk thistle is considered to potentially protect and improve liver health and is one of the most recommended herbs for optimizing liver functions. The herb appears to stimulate protein synthesis and several research studies have affirmed its valuable contribution in protecting the liver against alcohol damage, medicine-residue buildup, scar tissue formation, and liver dysfunctions.

  • Regulates Fat Levels in the Blood

The herb appears to reduce cholesterol and LDL, and also regulates glucose levels in the blood. It is therefore suggested that milk thistle may play a significant role in maintaining a healthy heart and optimum weight.

  • Exhibits Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory Actions

The U.S. National Library of Medicine lists milk thistle as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. This is why the herb is often used to potentially alleviate inflammation mechanisms in the liver, lung, GI tract, brain, and other organs of the body. It also appears to possess antioxidant capabilities by effectively scavenging free radical formation, activating a range of antioxidant enzymes, and improving mitochondrial( the energy producing organelles of the body) health.

  • Boosts the Immune System

Milk thistle is said to be endowed with immune boosting powers that potentially limit abnormal cell proliferation by safeguarding the outside layer of healthy cells from damage and mutation.  It also appears to barricade toxins from latching onto cell membrane receptors and counteracts the harmful effects of pollutants, chemicals and heavy metals that tax the body. Milk thistle has also earned a reputation of a potent antidote in cases of   poisoning by the death cap mushroom and may overcome bacterial and viral infections.

  • Improves Skin health

Because of its cumulative antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, detoxifying, and regenerating properties; milk thistle appears to offer benefits in reducing visible signs of aging. Consuming milk thistle may offer support in alleviating acne, dark spots, wrinkles, lines, and discoloration.

  • Supports the Bones

Clinical evidence has shown that silymarin is a potential facilitator in promoting bone cell regeneration and inhibiting osteoclasts that lead to bone resorption. Silymarin augmentation potentially leads to increase in bone mineral density, and optimum serum levels of bone alkaline phosphatase (enzyme that helps bone growth and bone cells to remain active), and osteocalcin (a protein hormone produced by bone forming cells).

  • Optimizes Gallbladder and Kidney Health

Milk thistle is said to have a general positive effect on the entire digestive apparatus in the body, which means it not only potentially improves liver functioning but also optimizes the gallbladder, pancreas, intestines and kidneys. It is said to efficiently detox these organs and flush any deposits that may get dumped or piled up in them.

  • Exerts Neuroprotective Benefits

Milk thistle appears to preserve glutathione-a naturally occurring antioxidant in the body. Decreased glutathione levels are said to lead to several diseases including neurodegenerative disorders. Milk thistle has also shown to potentially improve growth factor receptors that control synaptic strength and regulate nerve health.
