Milk thistle has been used since the first century to help maintain proper liver function. It has powerful antioxidant properties and is believed to be especially helpful in protecting the liver and kidneys from free radical damage. Milk thistle works because of its ability to inhibit the factors responsible for liver damage while stimulating production of new liver cells to replace old damaged ones.
Some supplements may interact with prescription and (or) over-the-counter medicines.
