The Milk Thistle Plant
Native to the Mediterranean regions of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, milk thistle is a flowering plant from the daisy family. It gets its name from the appearance of its leaves which are dappled with white splashes and contain a milky sap. The flowers of the plant are quite beautiful to behold and are a purple to pink colour with long spiky petals that fan outwards; much like a Scottish thistle.
Milk Thistle Extract
Holland & Barrett stocks a number of milk thistle extract supplements, which typically contain 80% silymarin. This active ingredient, found in the seeds of the plant, contains three phytochemicals: silybin, silidianin and silicristin.
