Milk thistle also known as Silybum Marianum is a natural herb that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and is commonly used to detoxify the body, especially the liver. Milk thistle gets its name from the milky-white liquid that runs off of the plant’s leaves when they’re crushed. While it has many different benefits, milk thistle is most well-known for being a natural liver supporter and detoxifier. Milk thistle benefits work by drawing toxins out of the body and protecting the liver from damage. As an antioxidant, the benefits of milk thistle are similar to other healing nutrients, like vitamin E or vitamin C, which help fight free radical damage and slow the aging process that can lead to disease development. It specifically contains high levels of lipophilic extracts from the seeds of the plant, which act as bioflavonoid antioxidants that increase immunity and slow down oxidative stress. The herb can also improve insulin resistance and lower blood sugar levels.
