What Is Milk Thistle?

Traditionally, milk thistle has been used to treat liver and gallbladder problems and disorders. Today, milk thistle is used in a number of natural and home remedies to tackle high cholesterol, diabetes, heartburn, dyspepsia, gallbladder problems, and more.

Studies have shown how silymarin, the active ingredient in milk thistle, can be used for preventing toxic substances from binding to cells in your liver. In emergency situations and server circumstances, medication prescribed from a doctor may prove most effective—however, supplementing milk thistle is an excellent, natural way to promote positive changes in your health with daily use. 

Although we are still learning more about milk thistle, some studies have found that milk thistle can lower blood sugar levels for people with diabetes, treat acne, boost healthy breast milk production, assist in the efficacy of chemotherapy cancer treatments, resist age-related decline in brain function, and help manage cholesterol levels.
