An herbal remedy derived from the milk thistle plant, also known as Silybum marianum. Milk thistle features a high amount of silymarin, a group of plant compounds that is known to have potent antioxidant
and anti-inflammatory properties. Traditionally, milk thistle has been used to treat liver and gallbladder disorders, boost brain function as well as breast milk production. When it comes to the skin, milk thistle functions as an antioxidant to protect against environmental aggressors, stress, and alcohol. It also helps increase levels of glutathione, which is known as the body’s natural antioxidant that combats free radicals and fights off diseases. As an anti-inflammatory, it may help reduce skin flare-ups like eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
