Also known by its botanical name Silybum Marianum, Milk Thistle is a member of the sunflower family but distinguished by its purple flowers and milky white leaf veins. Like sunflowers, the seeds are harvested at the end of summer, but are collected for their traditional healing qualities. In fact the traditional use of Milk Thistle dates back to ancient Greece and Rome.
It is the collective compounds known as silymarin which constitutes 4% to 6% of the ripe seeds that are the contributing health qualities of Milk Thistle. Silymarin helps to raise protective glutathione levels in the liver which works to support the immune system and fight off free radicals.
Milk Thistle has been one of the most studied and documented herbs today and whilst research continues to validate the full extent of the health benefitting qualities of Milk Thistle, this natural herb may help to provide relief from many liver ailments.
