The applicable parts of milk thistle are the seed and above ground parts. The seed is most commonly used medicinally. Silymarin, the active constituent of the milk thistle seed, consists of four fl avonolignans called silibinin (silybinin, silybin), isosilybinin, silichristin (silychristin), and silidianin. Silibinin makes up about 70% of silymarin. When ingested, silymarin undergoes enterohepatic recirculation and has higher concentrations in liver cells.
Adults: Take 1 to 3 capsules daily with meals.
