Silymarin is a complex plant compound used in medicine. It consists of flavonolignans (silybin, isosylibin, silycristin, silydianin, taxofilin). The available sources indicate that silymarin has a very wide range of use: it has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, anti-proliferative and antispasmodic properties, protects the liver from toxins and stabilizes the cell membranes structure.
Silybin is the main component of silymarin. It is believed that it has anti-hepatoxic properties and acts against numerous chemical substances which could interfere with the functioning of the liver cells or damage them (mycotoxins, carbon tetrachloride, ether, paracetamol, pyramidon, antipirin, ethanol and chloroform). Moreover, it can act anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Diabetes and the cholesterol management
The studies suggest that the use of milk thistle together with traditional treatment may improve the effects of therapy. A decrease of glucose levels in bloodstream and the improvement of the cholesterol management have been demonstrated in people with type II diabetes. However, a decrease in LDL cholesterol and related to it benefits among healthy people are not so obvious, because the studies were performed on diabetics and they often have increased cholesterol level. The researchers also discovered that the use of Silybum marianum may improve insulin sensitivity, which is a key feature for this disease.
It is a skin disease, characterized by the overproduction of sebum and chronic inflammations of hair-sebum roots. It is believed that free radicals cause damage to lipids in the skin, and it results in inflammation. The most recent studies have shown that people suffering from acne are not able to alleviate the damage because their endogenous protective system against free radicals is not working properly.
That is why the supplementation with antioxidants, including milk thistle, may be very effective. In the studies, in the group which was using a supplementation with silymarin the total number of above discussed damaged was significantly reduced. It should be also noted that the effect was obtained after at least two months of oral supplementation with 210 mg of silymarin.
