The milk thistle is a flowering
plant of the daisy family. They are native to the Mediterranean regions
of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. The name "milk thistle"
derives from two features of the leaves: they are mottled with splashes
of white and they contain a milky sap.
seeds of the milk thistle have been used for 2,000 years to treat
chronic liver disease and protect the liver against toxins. Increasing
research is being undertaken on the physiological effects, therapeutic
properties and possible medical uses of milk thistle.
milk thistle extract is made from the seeds, which contain
approximately 4-6% silymarin. It is a very important mineral for the
proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs
in the human body. It is also an electrolyte, a substance that conducts
silymarin. For many centuries extracts of milk thistle have been
recognized as "liver tonics". Research into the biological activity of
silymarin and its possible medical uses has been conducted in many
countries since the 1970s, but the quality of the research has been
uneven. Milk thistle has been reported to have protective effects on the
liver and to greatly improve its function. It is typically used to
treat liver cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis (liver inflammation),
toxin-induced liver damage including the prevention of severe liver
damage from Amanita phalloides ('death cap' mushroom poisoning), and
Toxin-induced liver damage Research
suggests that milk thistle extracts both prevent and repair damage to
the liver from toxic chemicals and medications. Workers who had been
exposed to vapors from toxic chemicals (toluene and/or xylene) for 5–20
years were given either a standardized milk thistle extract (80%
silymarin) or placebo for 30 days. The workers taking the milk thistle
extract showed significant improvement in liver function tests and
platelet counts vs. the placebo group.
a 2009 study published in the journal Cancer, milk thistle showed
promise in reducing the liver damaging effects of chemotherapy in a
study of 50 children.
Other uses: Beside benefits for liver disease, other unproven treatment claims include:
Lowering cholesterol levels.
Reducing insulin resistance in people with type 2 diabetes who also have cirrhosis.
Reducing the growth of cancer cells in breast, cervical, and prostate cancers.
Used in many products claiming to reduce the effects of a hangover
Reducing liver damaging effects of chemotherapeutic drugs.
Clinical study has shown that liver function tests can be improved in active hepatitis patients.
silymarin may have use, potentially, in the treatment of diabetic nephropathy (a progressive kidney disease).
