What is Milk Thistle?

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) has been traditionally used in Europe as an herbal remedy for a variety of ailments, with a focus on conditions that affect liver health. Today, milk thistle dietary supplements are widely used in the U.S. and Europe by people concerned with liver health. Milk thistle from Euromed is considered to be of the highest quality.

How does it work?

The active compounds are commonly referred to collectively as silymarin (sometimes as flavonolignans) which actually refers to six structurally related compounds: silybin A, silybin B, isosilybin A, isosilybin B, silychristin and silydianin, as well as other minor polyphenolic compounds. Milk thistle seeds are 4% to 6% silymarin. Supplements typically contain a seed extract standardized to 80% silymarin content. Silymarin absorption after oral consumption is thought to be in the range of 20 to 50%. Once absorbed, the silymarin compounds undergo multiple conjugation reactions, i.e., metabolic modifications. Human pharmacokinetic studies report that the unmodified compounds and their sulfate and glucuronide conjugates can all be found circulating in the blood. The majority of excretion is thought to be via bile and from there into faecal excretion, as very little ends up in urine. Animal and human research results suggest that milk thistle extract may have value for people with exposure to various environmental toxins.
