Milk thistle has been used for 2,000 years as a herbal remedy for a variety of ailments, particularly liver, kidney, and gallbladder problems. Several scientific studies suggest that substances in milk thistle (especially a flavonoid called silymarin) protect the liver from toxins, including certain drugs such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), which causes liver damage in high doses.
Shown to repair damage to the liver from alcohol and other methylated compounds, Silymarin plays a key role in liver health. It is a known liver decongestant, stimulating bile flow through the liver and gallbladder, reducing bile-induced liver damage. It is also a great antioxidant, oxidizing the many pollutants the liver filters in its phase one detoxification process. Silymarin also promotes glutathione (GSH) and superoxide dismutase (SOD), two of the body’s master super antioxidants. One study found that silymarin can increase glutathione content as much as 50%. It can also promote healthy kidneys via increasing protein and nucleic acid synthesis, increasing cell replication by 25-30%
