Milk thistle is one of the most researched herbs to protect liver health. Silymarin is the active ingredient that is normally concentrated into supplements. It can be taken as a tea, liquid tincture, or capsule.

Studies show that milk thistle helps support liver detoxification and repair from acute liver injury.

It may support a fatty liver, bile flow, and the clearance/repair following liver exposure to toxins, chemicals, drugs, and alcohol.

It also helps reduce advanced glycation end products - sticky residues from eating too much sugar that attach to cells and contribute to aging of the skin and body tissues. By protecting from sugar damage - milk thistle is regarded to promote brain and skin health too.

For lactating women, milk thistle may promote healthy milk production.
