Milk thistle (Silybum marianum), is an herb that comes in supplement form and can be used to help treat liver problems. Milk thistle acts as an antioxidant that rejuvenates your liver by reducing inflammation and restraining free radicals responsible for liver damage. When taken regularly, milk thistle can actually replace old damaged liver cells with healthy new ones.*
If you have liver problems you can take milk thistle daily, however, healthy people can reap the benefits of a three-four week detox. Aim to take 600-900mg daily and watch out for a potential laxative effect. Also, when choosing a supplement, look for one that contains 80 percent of the active substance known as silymarin.
