The Benefits of Milk Thistle for Liver Health

Milk thistle has been used by traditional herbalists for centuries. Clinical and non-clinical studies have indicated that milk thistle extract may help maintain healthy liver function through its ability to promote glutathione production, as well as by supporting the body’s normal detoxification processes.*

The liver is a vital organ responsible for many important functions in the body, including filtering toxins from the blood, storing nutrients, and producing bile to help with fat digestion. Because the liver plays such a critical role in our overall health, it’s important to do everything we can to keep it functioning optimally. Milk thistle is one herbal remedy that has been shown to be beneficial for liver health.

How Does Milk Thistle Work?

Milk thistle is thought to work by promoting glutathione production and supporting the body’s normal detoxification processes.* Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. It also helps the liver remove toxins from the blood.

A 2017 study published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine found that milk thistle was effective in reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).* NAFLD is a condition characterized by an accumulation of fat in the liver cells that is not caused by alcohol consumption. It’s estimated that NAFLD affects 25-30% of adults in Western countries.*

The milk thistle used in this study was a standardized extract containing 80% silymarin. Silymarin is a group of flavonoids that are responsible for milk thistle’s hepatoprotective (liver protecting) effects.*

If you’re looking for a natural way to support your liver health, milk thistle may be worth considering. This herb has been used for centuries and modern science is beginning to validate its traditional use. Milk thistle extract standardized to contain 80% silymarin is generally considered safe with few side effects.*
