Oregon's Wild Harvest Milk Thistle Key Benefits:
- An aid to healthy liver function.
- Liver support.
Background & Use
Milk Thistle has been used and extensively studied as an aid to healthy liver function. Silymarin, although well-known, is but one of many liver supporting substances found in the seed of Milk Thistle. Many clinical studies have demonstrated that Milk Thistle provides potent antioxidant protection, against free radicals and other toxins that normally enter into the liver and cause damage to the liver cells.
Milk Thistle was imported from its native Europe to the United States by early European settlers. This herb has been used medicinally for over 2,000 years. Traditional use in this country is documented by the Eclectic physicians in the 19th Century. They used Milk Thistle for traditional remedies for the liver and for menstrual support primarily. Modern scientific interest began in the 1970's and still continues today.
