There are over 300 research studies on milk thistle use and benefits that back up its proven value in liver health today. Many of these studies were carried out in Europe where Milk Thistle is a prescribed medication in Europe. Also, Milk thistle is one of the herbs approved by the Commission E for its beneficial effects on liver-related diseases such as toxic liver damage, inflammatory liver disease, and cirrhosis.
Milk thistle protects the cells of the liver by blocking the entrance of harmful toxins and helping remove these toxins from liver cells. Silymarin makes milk thistle a powerful antioxidant which works to maintain health and energy by protecting the body from damage caused by free radicals and lipid peroxidation, which can injure health cells and tissues. Also, Milk Thistle stabilizes the liver cell membrane and stimulates protein synthesis while accelerating the process of regeneration in damaged liver tissue. Last, Milk Thistle optimizes the production of bile and therefore makes fat digestion and absorption easy on liver.

A clinical research suggests that milk thistle, combined with traditional treatment, can improve diabetes. Other studies also have shown a decrease in blood sugar levels and an improvement in cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes. This lowering LDL, "bad" cholesterol level, by milk thistle help decrease the chance of developing heart disease too.
Remember diabetes is a serious condition. Ask a primary health practitioner before taking any supplements, as milk thistle may interfere with diabetic medication.
