By definition, milk thistle is an herbal remedy derived from a plant with the same name. It’s a popular supplement ingredient because it packs a high amount of silymarin — which has antiviral, antioxidative, anti-inflammatory properties.

Milk thistle has a boatload of health benefits, including protecting your liver, preventing mental decline, and strengthening your bones.

1. Protects Your Liver

Milk thistle is popular for its liver-protecting effects.

It’s commonly used as a complimentary therapy by people with liver damage caused by hepatitis, liver cancer, and alcoholic liver disease.

What’s even more impressive is that it also protects the liver against anatoxin — which is a deadly toxin produced by the popular death cap mushroom.

Furthermore, several studies on people with liver disease who took a milk thistle supplement suggest that it reduces liver damage and liver inflammation.

According to current findings, the way milk thistle protects the liver is by fighting the harmful free radicals in our body.

However, scientists are yet to confirm the exact reason behind milk thistle’s liver-protecting effects.

2. Prevents Mental Decline

Milk thistle has been used as a traditional remedy for neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease for over 2,000 years.

Recent studies suggest that milk thistle improves our neurological state due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

During this test tube study, researchers found out that silymarin can prevent oxidative damage to the brain, which is one of the most common reason of premature mental decline.

Since milk thistle contains a huge amount of silymarin, it can prevent mental decline.

3. May Boost Breast Milk Production

A few recent studies suggest that milk thistle boosts breast milk production.

According to one of those studies, mothers who took 420 milligrams of silymarin for sixty-three days produced 64% more milk than those who took a placebo.

However, these few studies are not enough to confirm the effect of milk thistle on breast milk production.


Health Issues Associated With Milk Thistle Deficiency

People who consume milk thistle regularly have a significantly lower risk of suffering from several health issues, among which the most notable ones are the following:

  • Acne
  • Liver damage
  • Bone fractures
  • Certain types of cancer
  • High blood sugar levels

So if you want to stay clear of the health issues mentioned above, then add a milk thistle supplement to your diet.


Daily Recommended Intake

The daily recommended intake of milk thistle depends almost completely on the condition the user is trying to treat. During recent studies, the following amount of milk thistle were used:

  • For diabetes: participants were given a product containing 140 milligrams of milk thistle three times a day for 45 days.
  • For indigestion: participants were given 1 milliliter of a specific combination product containing milk thistle and several herbs three times a day for 4 weeks.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
