Milk Thistle Quality Story

Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) contains a range of flavanolignans (silybin A and B, silychristin, silydianin, isosilybin and 2,3-dehydro derivatives) collectively called silymarin or silybin, as well as simple flavonoids such as taxifolin. Flavanolignans are important indicators of quality and efficacy. The flavanolignans are often measured analytically by the non-specific and less accurate 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine colorimetric method, which also reacts with any ketonic compounds, including the flavonoid taxifolin. MediHerb® has developed an HPLC method to allow the individual levels of the flavanolignans to be accurately measured, and determine a value for these which is not inflated by the presence of simple flavonoids.

Caution: Not to be used during pregnancy and lactation unless otherwise directed by a qualified health care professional. In anemia and cases where iron supplementaion is required, do not take simultaneously with meals or iron supplements.
