Milk thistle supplement is produced with an extract from the milk thistle plant, also known as Silybum marianum. It contains a high amount of silymarin, which component is in charge of almost all the benefits of Milk thistle. It has been proven that taking milk thistle supplements can reduce liver damages including liver inflammation. In details, milk thistle may reduce the liver damage caused by free radicals, which are produced when the liver metabolizes toxic substances. It may also extend the life expectancy of those with cirrhosis of the liver due to alcoholic liver disease. Certain animal studies have shown that milk thistle might benefit the protection of brain function, stimulation of bone mineralization, and improvement of the effects of some cancer treatments. Further, though it is in the very inchoate stage of research, milk thistle may increase breast milk production in women who are lactating.
For adults, take one (1) capsule once daily, preferably with a meal.
