Used medicinally for more than 2,000 years, milk thistle (silybum marianum) is a plant with long stem, purple-pink flowers, and wide leaves with white veins. Milk thistle seeds contain an antioxidant known as silymarin, which is believed to support healthy liver function and help protect healthy cells from free radical damage. Milk thistle supplements are commonly available in capsule or liquid form. While liquid milk thistle extract is beneficial, standardized milk thistle capsules are the most concentrated form and should be your first choice.**
