What is Milk Thistle?

Milk thistle is basically a flowering herb that is actually a descendent of the ragweed and daisy families. It is commonly found growing in the wild in Mediterranean countries and it is renowned for its numerous health and wellness benefits. This ingredient has actually been used for medicinal purposes for more than 2000 years, and it is still considered to be one of the healthiest and most beneficial supplements in the entire world. Milk thistle is rich in an ingredient known in silymarin, which experts are especially interested in, particularly when it comes to weight loss. Commonly, milk thistle is considered to be a very potent and powerful liver cleansing supplement, though recently, experts have begun to discover that it could also provide benefits for people looking to lose weight in a safe and controlled manner. Oh, and if you’re wondering about the name, it gets that because the leaves secrete a milky white liquid when they are broken down.

How does it work?

As mentioned, the primary use of milk thistle is for cleansing and supporting the liver, which is one of our most important and vital organs in the human body. The milk thistle gets to work by extracting and drawing toxins from the body that could potentially cause illness and disease. It functions as a potent and powerful antioxidant, that helps eradicate toxins and free radicals that could cause damage to the cells via oxidation. On top of that, it contains enzymes and ingredients that help cleanse and support the liver. The liver is constantly working as a filtration system, helping to flush toxins and harmful ingredients from the body before they can cause any damage. Prescription medications, alcohol, smoking, and other unhealthy life choices, can all damage the liver, which, if left untreated can potentially be fatal. Milk thistle provides support for the liver, it boosts the immune system, and it helps to remove harmful toxins from the body in the process.

What are the main benefits of Milk Thistle supplements?

Some of the primary benefits of milk thistle supplements include the following:

Liver cleansing

As we just mentioned, milk thistle supplements are considered essential for anybody looking to maintain a healthy liver, and what’s more, the supplement has even been shown to reverse the damaging effects on the liver, caused by drugs, alcohol, and other unhealthy lifestyle choices.

Increases immunity

As milk thistle is also rich in nutrients, and as it functions as a powerful antioxidant, milk thistle supplements are ideal for anybody looking to strengthen and improve their immune system. The stronger the immune system, the healthier the individual, so it is most certainly well worth considering using a milk thistle supplement on a daily basis.

Fat loss

Thanks to the silymarin, milk thistle can help regulate blood glucose levels, which means that the body can utilize more excess body fat for energy, as opposed to glucose and sugars in the system, which can assist with fat loss. Milk thistle also has laxative-like effects, so you can flush excess lipids and toxins out in your stools.

Other benefits include:

  • Improved immunity
  • Healthy liver
  • Can provide post-cycle protection after steroid usage
  • Helps eliminate toxins and free radicals
  • Anti-cancer
  • Assists with weight loss
  • Helps regulate hormone levels
  • Helps regulate blood sugar levels
  • And more...

How and when should it be consumed?

Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules): Adults: 1 Capsule(s) 1 - 3 time(s) per day.

Milk Thistle VS NAC

When it comes to liver health, milk thistle is often compared to NAC, or N-Acetyl Cysteine. In reality, the two are extremely potent supplements that benefit the liver, and indeed the body, in different ways. NAC is considered more effective for liver cleansing solely, whereas the milk thistle also provides numerous other benefits in the process, particularly as it functions as a powerful antioxidant.

What can it be stacked with?

Milk thistle is generally thought of a health and well-being supplement, and for that reason, it is usually stacked with basic health and wellness supplements including: multi vitamins, zinc, Vitamin C, Glucosamine, and Omega 3 capsules.

I'm hoping this can help speed the effects of the detox diet I'm taking a part of in order to exterminate my eczema. I'll try to remember to report back after the first packet of pills are consumed.
