Milk Thistle is a popular herbal remedy thats use dates back further than you could possibly imagine. While many people believe that healing with herbs is "bogus folk lore", absolutely nothing could be further from the truth. The science behind these plants is extremely sophisticated. Phytochemist are the researchers who have a major interest in these remedies. The truth is these students learn from these plants. Nature is itself the most advanced chemist on the planet.
Milk Thistle produces a phytochemical known as "silymarin", which is obviously named after the scientific name of the herb, "Silybum marianum". It does this using sunlight, water, and air, to create these highly ingenious organic compounds. The fact that plants are medicine become obvious when you discover that the most effective man made drugs and medicines come from plants. The fact is, many of these chemicals made by nature are synthesized and sold as modern pharmaceutical drugs. Of course, the pharmaceutical grade drugs are slightly altered. The pharmaceutical versions also tend to have a tendy to learn more towards the dangerous and harmful side of the spectrum.
Silymarin has been shown to be useful in the treatment of type II diabetes in clinical studies. It's also useful for patients who are chronically infected with hepatitis C. Infusions that include Milk Thistle are often suggested as a hangover cure because it helps rid organs from toxins. The same concept can be applied for people who suffer from a cancerous feeling caused from excessive smoking. A vast amount of scientific studies has been carried out on the medicinal constituents that this phytochemical induces.
Milk Thistle was also a popular herbal remedy in traditional Chinese medicine. They also used it for cleansing out toxins, soothing the liver and promoting bile flow. A 2007 study did show that it has activity against live cancer cells in vitro. This is only a small amount of the research that's been conducted on this species and its pharmacological compounds. With such clear indications from science being discovered, why are we not utilizing this type of medicine in mainstream practices?
Medical applications: liver disease, viral hepatitis, poisoning, cancer, and more.
