Milk thistle (Silybum Marianum L.) is a natural source of complex flavonolignans called silymarin. As an antioxidant silymarin has highly antyhepatotoxic properties. Not only does it enhance formation and regeneration of the liver cells, but also effectively protects all the newly formed cells. Milk thistle promotes bile secretion, as well as is antitoxic and anti-inflammatory. Its administration is particularly recommended during any liver-straining pharmacotherapy, as well as upon its completion, throughout the convalescence period.
