Health Information

Standardised Milk Thistle

Toxic liver damage, cirrhosis, hepatitis, fatty liver, chemical and alcohol induced fatty liver, inflammation of the bile duct, for people who work with chemicals, psoriasis, powerful antioxidant.

Since ancient times this herb has been used for its healing action on the liver. In 1971 the German scientist Dr Sarre tested 67 humans with chronic hepatitis and liver damage with silymarin, the active principle of milk thistle. The results were amazing. It was found that after only 3 months treatment the patients with chronic hepatitis were cured. This was done by actually doing a biopsy on the liver to see if any infection was present. No infection was found. The patients with liver damage responded very well to treatment.

In 1973 Italian scientists found that Silymarin sped up the regenerative process of the liver and increased the rate of cell division. In 1980 Dr Sonnenbichler demonstrated that silymarin increased protein synthesis in the liver, which is of vital importance to the formation of new liver cells. The increasing importance of antioxidants is becoming more apparent.

In 1977 it was found that silymarin had a very potent antioxidant action, about 10 times stronger than vitamin E.
