  • Slow or prevent age-related decreases in brain function. Milk thistle’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may protect neurons in the brain, reducing the decline in brain function in conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Specifically, evidence suggests it may reduce oxidative damage to brain cells and reduce amyloid plaques — sticky proteins that can accumulate between neurons, hindering their functioning. 
  • Lower blood sugar levels. Compounds in milk thistle appear to work like certain medications for those with type 2 diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing blood sugar. Note: You should not take milk thistle or adjust the dosage of your diabetes medicine without first talking with your doctor. 
  • Protect bones. Studies suggest that milk thistle may stimulate mineralization in bones, which could help offset the effects of osteoporosis, particularly for postmenopausal women. 
  • Increase breast milk production. One small research study found that women who took a milk thistle supplement for two months produced nearly 65% more than those who took a placebo. However, more research is needed. 
  • Protect the liver. Milk thistle supplements may be useful in combination with other treatments for liver damage. Studies have indicated that it can improve liver function for people with liver diseases. Researchers believe it may reduce free radicals that develop as the liver metabolizes toxins. However, further studies are needed on the milk thistle/liver relationship.
  • Treat indigestion. Milk thistle may help reduce indigestion when taken with other supplements.
  • Improve heart health. There’s evidence that milk thistle might help lower cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease. However, those results came from studies of people with diabetes, so it’s unclear if people without diabetes would experience the same benefits. 
  • Make cancer treatment more effective. Animal studies have indicated that milk thistle may be beneficial in reducing side effects from cancer treatments. It may also make chemotherapy more effective against some cancers and even kill specific cancer cells. Similar studies in humans have yielded the same results, but research continues. 
  • Help treat acne. Experts believe inflammation and oxidative stress contribute to the development of acne. Milk thistle’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may help reduce acne.
