What about the Milk Thistle ?

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a thorny plant presenting decorative leaves with a white pattern of veins
and purple flower heads. The plant originates from mountains of the Mediterranean region, where it forms
scrub on a rocky base.

The seeds of milk thistle are one of the most important herbal liver medicines. The sylimarin contained in
them is an effective life-saving agent even in cases of poisoning with a lethal dose of death cap mushroom.
Besides that, milk thistle seeds have other therapeutic properties. The plant is sometimes also used as a
decorative element in gardens, and its dried flower heads may be used for the decoration of dry bouquets.

Silybum marianum is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to clear heat and relieve toxic material, to so
othe the liver and to promote bile flow.Though its efficacy in treating diseases is still unknown, Silybum
marianum is sometimes prescribed by herbalists to help treat liver diseases (cirrhosis,jaundice and
hepatitis). Silibinin (syn. silybin, sylimarin  may have hepatoprotective (antihepatotoxic) properties that
protect liver cells against toxins.Both in vitro and animal research suggest that silibinin has hepatoprotective
(antihepatotoxic) properties that protect liver cells against toxins.

The Function of Milk Thistle Extract 

Although a number of animal studies demonstrate that milk thistle can be helpful in protecting the liver,
results in human studies are mixed.

Liver disease from alcohol

Milk thistle is often suggested as a treatment for alcoholic hepatitis and alcoholic cirrhosis. But scientific
studies show mixed results. Most studies show milk thistle improves liver function and increases survival
in people with cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis. But problems in the design of the studies (such as small
numbers of participants and differences in dosing and duration of milk thistle therapy) make it hard to
draw any real conclusions.

Viral hepatitis

Milk thistle is widely used in the treatment of viral hepatitis (particularly hepatitis C). However, studies
show mixed results. Some found improvements in liver function, while others did not. In one study of
16 patients who didn’t respond to interferon and ribavirin therapy, milk thistle significantly reduced the
viral load of hepatitis C. In 7 of the subjects the virus decreased to undetectable levels after 14 days
of therapy.

Mushroom poisoning

Based on traditional use, milk thistle has been used as an emergency antidote to poisoning by deathcap
mushroom (Amanita phalloides). Animal studies have found that milk thistle extract completely counteracts
the toxic effects of the mushroom when given within 10 minutes of ingestion. If given within 24 hours, it
significantly reduces the risk of liver damage and death.


Early laboratory studies also suggest that silymarin and other active substances in milk thistle may have
anticancer effects. These substances appear to stop cancer cells from dividing and reproducing, shorten
their lifespan, and reduce blood supply to tumors. Some studies suggest silymarin may favorably
supplement sunscreen protection and may help reduce the risk of skin cancer. More studies are needed,
however, to show whether milk thistle has any effects in the body (not just in test tubes).
