Milk thistle has been used as a folk remedy since ancient times. Greek herbalists used it to promote lactation and aid in liver health. It is still used today to promote healthy digestion, support normal liver function, and may aid in the maintenance of normal, healthy levels of bilirubin and cholesterol. Milk thistle supports the immune response and reduces inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract; it may also reduce toxin absorption, protecting the liver, kidneys, brain, and other soft tissues from chemical toxins. *

It is important to note that while milk thistle has a long history of use as a traditional remedy, there is currently limited scientific research on its properties.
