Among the 500-plus functions the liver performs are filtering and destroying toxins in the body. To help protect the health of the liver, we need to provide it with the nutrients it requires. Milk thistle contains the constituent silymarin, which has shown remarkable ability to help liver cells regenerate and stabilize liver cell membranes.
- Increases the liver’s ability to filter blood.
- Helps prevent damage from environmental toxins, alcohol and bacterial compounds.

Research shows that silymarin actually changes the structure of the outer liver cell membrane, preventing liver toxins and poisons from entering the interior of the cell. It also stimulates protein synthesis in liver cells, which generates DNA and RNA. This helps regenerate damaged liver cells. Silymarin does not stimulate growth of malignant liver tissue. As an antioxidant, silymarin is at least 10 times more powerful than vitamin E. The level of the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase, is increased in cells with silymarin.
The German Commission E recommends milk thistle for toxic liver damage, supportive treatment in chronic inflammatory liver conditions and liver cirrhosis. Many clinical studies have examined the effects of this herb and find milk thistle highly effective with no side effects.
