What is Milk Thistle?

Milk Thistle is a flowering herb related to the daisy and ragweed family. The scientific name for Milk Thistle is Silybum marianum.  The plant’s flower is a beautiful deep fuchsia belonging to the Asteraceae plant family and once native to Southern Europe and Asia, it is now found abundantly worldwide.  Milk Thistle has been used as a natural treatment and medicine for liver disorders and liver support for over 2,000 years.

What Are The Benefits Of Taking a Milk Thistle Supplement?*

Silymarin acts as an anti-inflammatory and as an antioxidant.  Although Milk Thistle is usually associated with liver health it also has non-liver related benefits as well.*

What Exactly Does Standardized 80% Silymarin Mean?

Since Milk Thistle is comprised of both active and inactive ingredients in dissimilar quantities, there would be no way at all to determine the composition of the finished product without employing a standardized form.   To ensure quality control throughout the Herbal Nutraceutical Market in the USA most Milk Thistle is available in the standardized form reflecting 80% Silymarin.
