What are the properties of Silymarin Milk Thistle Extract?
Silybum marianum or Milk thistle is the most investigated plant for the treatment of liver disease. The active complex of Milk Thistle is a lipophilic extract from the plant's seeds and is composed of three flavonolignan isomers (silybin, silydianin, and silychristin) collectively known as silymarin. Silybin is the component with the highest degree of biological activity and constitutes from 50% to 70% of the silymarin. Silymarin is found throughout the plant, but concentrates especially in the fruit and seeds.
Silymarin acts as an antioxidant by reducing the production of free radicals and lipid peroxidation, it has antifibrotic activity and can act as a toxin-blocking agent by inhibiting the binding of toxins to receptors on the cell membrane of hepatocytes. Silymarin has been used to treat alcoholic liver disease, acute and chronic viral hepatitis, and toxin-induced liver diseases. (1)
