Milk Thistle was used by the Greek herbalist Dioscorides, to diffuse the poison of snakebites.  It has been used for obstructions in the liver and spleen.  Milk Thistle has significant antioxidant and free radical scavenger action properties .  This is due to its rich bioflavonoid content which acts in the body to increase membrane strength and reduce membrane permeability.

Milk Thistle is very beneficial for the liver, both protecting and rejuvenating it.  It has also been shown to protect the kidneys, brain and other tissues for chemical toxins.  Milk Thistle can help in rejuvenating the liver when overcoming alcohol toxicity, especially cirrhosis.  Milk Thistle is a detoxifying, rebuilding herb for the liver and is specific for the gall bladder, with significant anti-oxidant properties to prevent free radical oxidation.  Milk Thistle has been helpful in alcohol induced fatty liver disorders, chronic hepatitis (inflammation of the liver), chemically induced fatty liver disorders, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile ducts resulting in decreased flow of bile), cholestasis (suppression of bile flow), cirrhosis or hardening of the liver and hepatic organ damage and psoriasis.

The active ingredient in Milk thistle is Silymarin.  Silymarin increases protein synthesis in liver cells, by increasing the activity of ribosomal RNA.  Silymarin also induces an alteration of liver cellular membrane to stop absorption of many toxins.  Milk Thistle is known to stop the toxicity of Amanita mushroom poisoning and common dry-cleaning flid (carbon tetrachlorid poisoning).  It has appeared more effective than any other known substance.
