What is Swanson Superior Herbs Milk Thistle?

Milk Thistle also known by its botanical name of Silybum Marianum is characterised by its purple flowers and milky white leaf stems. It is related to the sunflower family, native to the Mediterranean and usually blooms from June to August.

Traced back to Ancient Greece and Rome the seeds of the Milk Thistle plant have been used in traditional healing with particular focus on the liver. Extensively studied, even today, the active ingredient in Milk Thistle, the compound Silymarin is believed to have protective and healing powers on the liver.

Silymarin constitutes 4% - 6% of ripe seeds from the Milk Thistle and usually prepared into capsules, extracts, powders, and tinctures. Swanson Superior Herbs Milk Thistle (Standardised) 250mg contains a guaranteed potency extract of 80% Silymarin.

What is Swanson Superior Herbs Milk Thistle used for?

The Liver is the largest organ in your body and plays a vital role in producing and processing a range of chemical substances for the body including proteins for blood plasma, cholesterol and bile which removes waste products from the liver. The Liver also stores excess glucose and controls the blood level of amino acids. However the Liver is also a common site for liver related disorders such as cirrhosis, hepatitis and gallbladder disorders.

Milk Thistle is a natural herb which for thousands of years has provided a ‘tonic’ to support, protect and maintain healthy liver function. There are many good reasons to add a supplement of Milk Thistle into your daily diet including:
  • Milk Thistle enhances and strengthens the Liver by preventing the depletion of glutathione, an amino acid like compound that is essential to the detoxifying process.
  • A powerful antioxidant: Milk Thistle is even more potent that vitamins C & E.
  • Milk Thistle is also thought to support the heart by lowering cholesterol levels and may help people with type 2 diabetes by reducing insulin resistance.

What is the recommended dose of Swanson Superior Herbs Milk Thistle?

As a dietary supplement Swanson recommend you take one capsule two to three times per day with water.
