What is Milk Thistle?

Milk Thistle, also known as Silybum marianum, is a flowering herb of the Asteraceae family (which also includes sunflowers and daisies) that may possess antioxidant properties and promote healthy inflammatory responses. Native to Mediterranean countries, the Milk Thistle plant is noted for its red or purple flowers, pale green leaves and white veins. The name "Milk Thistle" refers to these white veins as well as the milky-white liquid that seeps from the plant's leaves when they are crushed.

Traditionally, Milk Thistle has a history of usage in the Middle East and Europe as well as noted appearances in traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda that dates back almost 2000 years. The most common documented Milk Thistle uses in traditional medicine are its ability to act as an all natural detoxifier and support liver health.

Milk Thistle Benefits and Uses

Uses and benefits of Milk Thistle may include:

    • Support healthy liver function
    • Support cardiovascular health
    • Support a healthy immune system and cellular function
    • Support a healthy metabolism and promotes weight loss
    • Support cognitive function

What is Silymarin?

Silymarin is the active extract ingredient that is believed to be responsible for Milk Thistle's benefits. Silymarin is comprised of the following flavonolignans listed below which are considered unique to the Milk Thistle plant:

    • Silybinin (diastereoisomeric blend of Silybinin A and Silybinin B)
    • Isosilibin (Isosilybin A and Isosilybin)
    • Silychristine
    • Isosilychristine
    • Silydianin
    • Taxifolin (Quercetin conjugate known as Dihydroquercetin)

Why Choose a 4:1 Milk Thistle Extract? 

While Milk Thistle seeds can be eaten raw or made into tea or tincture, most people choose to take a high quality Milk Thistle supplement in order to obtain a higher concentrated dose of the active ingredient silymarin. Because of this, Nootropics Depot chooses to only offer a 4:1 ethanol extract of Milk Thistle, which provides concentrated amounts of the active, beneficial ingredient silymarin. Unfortunately, other Milk Thistle supplements on the market are either not a true extract, or use more volatile solvents in the extraction process. Using ethanol to create a 4:1 extract is not the cheapest extraction method, but leads to the best Milk Thistle supplement available on the market. Additionally, it is important to note that most clinical studies regarding Milk Thistle use an ethanol extract that features high concentrations of silymarin

Milk Thistle Dosage

As a dietary supplement, take 250mg of Milk Thistle Extract once daily.

    Disappointed

    I was glad that this came in powder form because I get weary of taking pill/capsule supplements. I thought it would be easy to take but after mixing it in hot liquids I discovered real fast that this doesn't dissolve very well--at all. It formulates into chunks that end up on the bottom of the mug which doesn't get consumed. One other thing that I'd like to mention & suggest: currently, there is no way to know how much 250 mg is. No scoop is provided to help the user know. The label just says, "take 250 mg once a day." Okay... so, how much is 250 mg if I have nothing to measure it by? It ends up being a complete guessing game. Crazy. I rarely if ever say this but between the inability to dissolve in hot liquid and no means to measure the correct dosage, this wasn't worth it. Hence, I won't be reordering. :( Wish this was a better review.

    ND Admin: An accurate scale is a must when dosing powder. Scoops are not accurate forms of measurement, and we feel that providing them promotes unsafe and inaccurate dosing. A milligram scale is absolutely needed when taking any supplement in powder form. This particular one is pretty hard to dissolve, and kind of stains things. So it is for sure not a fun one to handle compared to something like L-theanine.

    I used to previously buy 80% silymarin capsules on Amazon but this is good, potent stuff.
