The main constituent, silymarin, has been extensively studied and has been found to be one of the most potent liver protecting substances known.

As silymarin possesses choleretic activity, it may produce a looser stool as a result of increased bile flow and secretion. If larger amounts are used it may be useful to include a fibre supplement containing psyllium husks to prevent mucosal irritation and encourage firm stools.

Potential applications: Detoxification, reducing cholesterol, digestive tonic (bitter), stimulant to milk flow in nursing mothers, drug abuse, alcoholism, effects of long term treatment by conventional drugs, liver poisoning (notably the death cap mushroom). Shown to help stimulate adrenal function in those using long term steroid medication.

Neuropathy (shown to significantly reduce sorbitol accumulation). Reduces symptoms of toxic liver damage i.e. – nausea, itching, discomfort.

Known contraindications: Milk thistle extract is virtually devoid of any side effects and may be used by most people, including pregnant and breast-feeding women. It has, in fact, been recommended as a treatment for itching due to poor gallbladder function during pregnancy. However, physician guidance is recommended in cases of pregnancy.

Interactions: No adverse effects known.

Useful links: Liver / gallbladder support– Flax seed oil, artichoke / schisandra, fibre complex, antioxidant complex, green food blend / blue food blend Diet and lifestyle: aerobic exercise, back stretching, abdominal exercise, antioxidant rich diet (e.g. green leafy vegetables), low saturated / hydrogenated fats, keep hydrated (1.5 litres water).

Note: Silymarin contains a mixture of 3 compounds known as silibin, silidianin, and silichristine. Silibin is the component with the greatest biological activity.
