Milk Thistle contains a group of flavonolignans known collectively as silymarin from the milk thistle seed. Silymarin is a complex mixture of several bioactive compounds, including silybin A and B, isosilybin A and B, silychristin, and silydianin. Silymarin is known for its hepatoprotective properties and has been extensively studied for its potential therapeutic effects on liver disorders. Silymarin is believed to exert its beneficial effects through antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antifibrotic mechanisms. It has been used in the treatment of liver diseases such as alcoholic liver disease, viral hepatitis, and liver cirrhosis. It is also utilized as a supportive therapy for individuals taking hepatotoxic medications or exposed to toxins. In addition to silymarin, Milk Thistle also contains other bioactive compounds, including flavonoids (quercetin, kaempferol) and fatty acids, which may contribute to its overall therapeutic benefits.
