MILK THISTLE (SILYMARIN) PLANT
USED TO PROTECT LIVER
Many Europeans use milk thistle
(Silybum marianum) as a supplement
to protect their livers from the effects
of alcohol or a polluted environment or
workplace. However, in Europe, as a
prescribed medicine, the milk thistle
extract is also used to treat alcoholic
cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis, drug and
alcohol-induced liver damage and
other disease such as acute viral
hepatitis.

Milk thistle seeds are approved in the
German Commission E Monographs as
a supportive treatment for
inflammatory liver conditions such as
cirrhosis, hepatitis, and fatty infiltration
caused by alcohol and other toxins.
