Health benefits of Milk Thistle Extract supplements
Improve liver health
One of the most common traditional use of milk thistle extract or Silymarin is in the treatment of liver problems including Jaundice, Hepatitis and Cirrhosis. One recent health study found milk thistle extract improved diet-induced liver damage. Researchers think that the active ingredient in milk thistle, Silymarin, acts as an antioxidant by reducing free radical production. It is theorized that this creates a detoxifying effect and hence Milk Thistle extract’s beneficial effects on the liver. It is now regarded as a helpful complementary treatment for liver problems, however, more research is required to validate its potential as a primary treatment option. Evidence suggests that Milk Thistle extract may be hepatoprotective through a number of mechanisms: antioxidant activity, toxin blockade, enhanced protein synthesis, and possible anti-inflammatory or immune-modulating effects.
Milk Thistle extract may reduce blood sugar
Milk thistle might lower blood sugar in people who have type 2 diabetes. In people with type II diabetes, Holy Basil extract helped reduce fasting and postprandial blood glucose levels. The findings from blood sugar studies suggested that basil leaves extract may be prescribed as a secondary dietary therapy in mild or moderate type II diabetes.
Milk Thistle extract may help with Acne
In studies, it was found that there is a significant decrease in total lesion count of Acne in those who supplement Silymarin daily for at least eight weeks.
