When taken as a dietary supplement, Milk Thistle has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, promoting healthy metabolism and boosting liver function.
The plant’s active compounds silybin and silymarin may decrease inflammation by regulating cytokine activity – cytokines modulate inflammatory responses in the body. Anecdotally, Milk Thistle may have similar effects to other detoxifying plants like dandelion and burdock root, with short-lived but powerful effects.
