What are the benefits of silymarin?

- Jun 19, 2019-

Silymarin has inhibitory effects on lipoxygenase and peroxidase. It is clinically used for the treatment of liver poisoning, liver dysfunction, anti-radiation, and hypolipidemic effects.

A large number of studies have shown that silymarin and silybin compounds have a wide range of pharmacological activities. The main activities are summarized as follows:


Scavenging reactive oxygen species

The milk thistle extract silymarin directly scavenges reactive oxygen species, counteracts lipid peroxidation and maintains cell membrane fluidity.

2. Liver protection

Silymarin has a protective effect on liver damage caused by carbon tetrachloride, galactosamine, alcohols, and other hepatotoxins;

3. Anti-tumor effect

Various reactive oxygen species can oxidize guanine to form 8 antelope guanine to cause DNA damage, which will cause tumors. The use of antioxidants, especially free radical scavengers, can prevent this from happening.
