Benefits of Milk Thistle

Supporting healthy liver and gastrointestinal function

Milk Thistle (Silybum Marianum) is a plant that is native to Europe. It is also sometimes called St. Mary’s Thistle. First records of its use come from Roman times when it was celebrated as a liver tonic, ‘excellent for carrying off bile’. Each part of the plant is rich in its own combination of nutrients, but it is the fruit, leaves and seeds that contain the antioxidant¬†Silymarin.

Milk Thistle has been used for centuries to support healthy liver function. While Milk Thistle’s effect on liver function still needs to be fully researched, evidence from its historical use and small scale studies, confirm its benefits for use in supporting healthy liver function and in supporting the secretion and flow of bile.

Only a few studies on the reported benefits of Milk Thistle extract in supporting human health have been conducted, and results have been mixed. Its Silymarin complex however, has been extensively studied in vitro. Silymarin has demonstrated powerful antioxidant support, mainly for liver health and function, which is of benefit to the gastrointestinal system in general.

What quality means to us

1.We start with the science.

The first marker of quality is effectiveness. That’s why we follow an evidence-based approach to nutrition. Unless there is scientific research supporting a nutrient it won’t be included in our recommendations. Research is also clearly categorised as mixed, emerging, strong, very strong or traditionally used remedies.

2.We know our place.

Usually the best way to get the best nutrients is in food. Real food. So we will never advocate vitamins or minerals as a replacement to a balanced diet. Where they have a key role is when, for whatever reason, your daily diet is not delivering what you need.

3.We're transparent.

Nutrition can be very confusing, with many voices & opinions. A quality outcome is about being able to make informed decisions. That’s why you can drill down on each nutrient to find out exactly why it has been recommended, its form, its bio-availability, dose & detailed ingredients.

4.We are multi-source.

You’ll find that our range changes. If the research indicates that the best form of nutrient comes via a particular extraction process or from a new part of the world then that is where we will seek to source those nutrients. As new research or technology emerges we constantly refine which nutrients sit at the heart of each personalised recommendation.
