Native to the Mediterranean but now cultivated throughout the world, milk thistle has been historically regarded for its therapeutic potential.* When the leaves are crushed they release a milky sap, giving this herb its characteristic name.

Silymarin, the active component of milk thistle, is a group of compounds  known as silibinin, silidianin and silicristin. These compounds work together to provide multiple health benefits including healthy liver, kidney and gallbladder function.*


Milk Thistle and the Liver*
The liver, the largest internal organ in the body, plays a key role in supporting many detoxifying functions, including filtering blood from the digestive tract and detoxifying and metabolizing chemicals in order to keep us healthy and thriving.* The liver also helps aid in hormone production and releases glucose into the bloodstream for healthy energy regulation.* It’s important to keep the liver healthy in order for it to carry out these processes more efficiently.*

Silymarin, the compound extracted from milk thistle, is an antifibrotic, meaning that it helps prevent tissue scarring and acts as a “toxin blockade agent” by inhibiting the binding of toxins to liver cell membrane receptors.* Silymarin also acts as an antioxidant and may help reduce the production of free radicals.*

    Milk Thistle in the Diet
    Milk thistle is the richest source of silymarin. Silymarin is often referred to as milk thistle extract because its seeds contain about 70 percent of the flavonoid. Other parts of the milk thistle plant, such as the sprouts and stems, also contain silymarin, but the seeds are the most concentrated form. Milk thistle is indigenous to countries bordering the Mediterranean, where it is still thought of as a medicinal plant. In North America, milk thistle is often regarded as a weed and a target of pesticides. Silymarin is found in most plants of the thistle family.

    Artichokes are members of the thistle family and contain small amounts of silymarin. Silymarin accounts for the antioxidant behavior associated with artichokes.* Turmeric root and coriander seeds and leaves also contain silymarin. Turmeric is often ground into a yellow powder and used as a spice in curry dishes. Coriander leaves, also called cilantro, are a common additive in Thai and Mexican dishes. Though these foods are sources of silymarin, it is best to supplement with a Milk Thistle with standardized silymarin.*


    How to choose the right Milk Thistle

    While there are many options on the market, it is important to look for milk thistle supplements that contain standardized doses of silymarin in the formulation. Nature’s Lab Milk Thistle Extract delivers 80% standardized silymarin per serving, which means you are receiving clinically tested levels.
