  • Silymarin benefits overall liver healthy by promoting production of new liver cells and healing of damaged liver cells. It also provides potent antioxidant protection from liver damage caused by free radicals and toxins. According to studies, these mechanisms of action of Silymarin are effective for the prevention of hepatitis, cirrhosis, jaundice, and other liver health disorders. There are evidences demonstrating its abilities to repair pre-existing liver damage to some extent.
  • Silymarin may be effective in regulating blood glucose levels in insulin-dependent diabetes. Because of silymarin’s liver-protective benefits, it may help prevent the onset of insulin dependent diabetes or stabilise blood sugar levels in patients already diagnosed with it. Insulin-dependent diabetes often occurs in people with chronic liver disease. Silymarin supports the liver’s abilities to handle more insulin, the hormone that transports blood sugar to the cells for utilisation.
  • Silymarin supports overall digestive health in Crohn’s Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It stimulates the production of bile that breaks down fats in the small intestine. Additionally, Milk Thistle Silymarin can diminish the production of testosterone by-products in the colon, which is linked with acne, constipation, diarrhea, and other digestive discomforts.

For centuries, milk thistle (silybum marianum) was traditionally used for counteractive mushroom poisoning. Death from mushroom poisoning is often due to liver failure, caused by the poison affecting the liver. Traditional healers believe that milk thistle has strong liver-protective action, thanks to a very powerful flavonoid complex called silymarin. Silymarin is an extract derived from the seed of the milk thistle plant with potent liver detoxifying properties and famous liver tonic. The complex is composed of three flavonoids including silybin, silydianin, and silychrisin. They have been subjected to numerous scientific studies for decades to directly identify the link between silymarin and liver health support. Contemporary research found that Silymarin has strong antioxidants that prevent free radicals from damaging liver cells. It promotes the production of new liver cells and aids in the healthy repair of damaged cells to restore proper liver functions. In Europe, Silymarin is being recommended to control the symptoms and promote liver healing in cirrhosis, hepatitis, and jaundice. Other actions of silymarin in the body include stimulating the production of bile in the gallbladder and regulating blood sugar in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes.
