- Dec 07, 2021 -

The origin of milk thistle

Milk thistle is originally produced in Europe. It began to be planted in China in the 1980s and then planted in large quantities in Shaanxi, Hebei, Jiangsu, and Northeast China. Shaanxi is the best-planted product. It is called milk thistle because of the white veins attached to its leaves, which look like milk dripping on it. Legend has it that this is the milk of the Virgin Mary.


The function of silymarin

It has been used as a medicinal plant for nearly two thousand years, and it is still widely used as a very effective liver-protecting plant for the active ingredient silymarin. Silymarin can activate the regeneration of liver proteins, restore the activity of liver cells destroyed by alcohol and viruses, remove free radicals, maintain the permeability of liver cell membranes, reduce the damage to the liver by toxins, and protect the liver from long-term drinking and liver injury. People with acute and chronic hepatitis, fatty liver, cirrhosis, and toxic liver damage.


The introduction of milk thistle extract

1. Milk thistle extract powder contains a combination of flavonoids called silymarin (C25H22O10). It is mainly composed of three isomers: silybin, isosilybin, and silybin. Silybin has the strongest activity and is largely responsible for the properties of silymarin.

2. The water solubility of silybin is very poor, so the extraction method of silybin should adopt the extraction method of plant lipid solubility, rather than the water-solubility method.

3. The biological tolerance of milk thistle extract is so good that adults will not experience significant toxicity even if they take 13 grams per day.
