may be a useful nutritional supplement for individuals who wish to
enhance healthy hepatic function through the natural protective and
regenerative properties of this herb.
Milk thistle, a common herb native to
the Mediterranean, has been widely used for its nutritional support of
liver function for over 2,000 years. Seeds of the dried milk thistle
flower are rich in silymarin, a bioflavonoid complex of three
flavonolignins: silybin, silydianin, and silychristin. Silymarin is
responsible for milk thistle’s powerful protective and regenerative
activities in the liver. The liver is the body’s detoxifying organ,
disabling toxins such as ethanol, environmental poisons, pesticides,
and certain pharmaceuticals. In addition to its detoxification
properties, the liver plays an essential role in protein, carbohydrate,
and lipid metabolism, cholesterol synthesis, bile secretion, and
storage of fat-soluble vitamins.
When damaged or diseased, the
liver’s ability to eliminate toxins and perform its numerous other
functions may be severely impaired. Silymarin has been shown to support
and enhance normal, healthy liver function through three primary
actions. By binding to the outer cell membrane, silymarin prevents
harmful toxins from entering the cell. Silymarin further protects the
liver as an important component of the liver’s antioxidant defense. The
liver generates potentially damaging, toxic free radicals and reactive
oxygen species (e.g. peroxides) as a result of its normal metabolic and
Left unchecked, these radicals can
damage the cell structure and interfere with normal cell functions.
Fortunately, silymarin provides support for free radical damage.
Furthermore, silymarin enhances levels of glutathione and superoxide
dismutase, two primary antioxidants in the liver. In addition to its
protective functions, silymarin stimulates damaged liver cells to
regenerate. In the cell nucleus, silymarin augments the production of
ribosomes, stimulating protein synthesis in the damaged cell. This
results in expedited cell regeneration, the replacement and repair of
