Silymarin is the main active ingredient in milk thistle. Silymarin is both an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant

Medical research does suggest that milk thistle, combined with traditional treatment, can improve diabetes. Studies have shown a decrease in blood sugar levels and an improvement in cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes.

Researchers also have found that milk thistle improved insulin resistance, a key characteristic of type 2 diabetes. By lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol levels, milk thistle may help decrease the chance of developing heart disease.
