There are a number of doctors in Europe that prescribe milk thistle plant as a
treatment for liver disorders, including a range from cirrhosis to hepatitis.

Milk thistles botanical name is silybum marianum, and its active ingredient is silymarin.
It grows in many locations around the world including North America, in both
"domestic" and wild varieties and is typically harvested in late summer.

Milk Thistle is mostly associated with treating liver problems, but it has also shown
great promise in treating gallstones, allergies, high cholesterol and even skin cancer.
It is a powerful antioxidant, which explains the protective and healing powers of the
herb.

Modern physicians also use an intravenous form of milk thistle as an antidote for
people who have consumed poisonous mushrooms, and the extract of the milk
