Buy Milk Thistle

You can safely buy Thisilyn Milk Thistle Capsules at UK Meds, without the need for a prescription or consultation with a medical professional, however you should adhere to the advice given in the patient leaflet enclosed.

Milk Thistle (or 'silymarin') is a plant belonging to the same flower group as daisies. It can be found as an ingredient in dietary supplements that are typically used to treat health conditions such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, jaundice, diabetes, indigestion, and other conditions.

According to research by Bhattacharya, S. (2020), milk thistle has numerous health benefits such as anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, lipid, and biliary effects. Alongside antiviral and antitumor properties. This is supported by Achufusi & Patel (2022) who state that millions of people consume milk thistle to support healthy liver function.

Although, some people claim that milk thistle supplements can cure a hangover, medical research suggests that there is no scientific evidence to suggest that milk thistle can prevent hangovers (Verster et al, 2021).

Yes. Whilst small-scale lab studies suggest that silybin may help to protect the liver from alcohol damage, Dr Emma Davis suggests that none of these studies supports the idea that silybin can help with a hangover, as it involves different biological processes.

Milk thistle can potentially have side effects of differing degrees for different indivuals. These can include a range of gastrointestinal issues such as itchiness, vomiting, nausea, constipation and/or abdominal bloating (Mulrow et al, 2000)

There is no research or evidence to suggest that a person can develop immunity to the effects of milk thistle. However, there are studies researching the immunostimulatory effects of Silybum (Wilasrusmee et al, 2002).
