A Wonder Drug From Milk Thistle

Milk thistle is a flowering herb and is known for its complementary therapy. Silymarin, is a mixture made of the herb's active components. //It is believed to contain a number of active constituents called flavolignans, which protect the liver against poisoning.

He observed that people who were given the herb had reduced blood glucose levels. 'The results are very encouraging, and we now need to do further large multi-centre studies,' says Huseini.
