The first report on Milk thistle was made by Dioscorides (Greek Physician) who recommended the drug to treat serpent bites. Pliny the Elder (Naturalist) in AD 23-79 mentioned that the juice of this herb along with honey can help in “carrying off bile” while, in middle age, it was used as an antidote for liver toxins. For many years Native Americans have been using it to treat boils and other skin related conditions. Moreover, Germans used it for the treatment of dyspepsia, hepatic cirrhosis and liver disease.

How does this herb act?

Silymarin is a very well known antioxidant having chemoprotective effects on the liver. Studies performed in labs indicate that this ingredient helps to stabilize the cell membranes which prevents the toxins from entering the cell and hence damage or lyse it. In rats, it increased the levels of glutathione in liver cells and reduced oxidative stress.
