Milk Thistle – silybum marianum. Milk thistle is a powerful liver protector and antioxidant. This herb’s active component, silymarin, prevents liver destruction, and stimulates the replacement of damaged liver cells. It also increases the secretion and flow of bile, thereby helping to prevent sluggish liver and gallstone formation. Additionally, milk thistle has been shown to be effective in treating psoriasis, primarily due to its ability to reduce excessive skin cell proliferation.
