Milk Thistle Seed Oil or Milk Thistle Oil is obtained by cold pressing of the seeds of Silybum Marianum, recognisable in the summer months as a small purple plant. Silymarin, a flavonolignan complex, comes from the seeds of Milk Thistle and is believed to be the active constituent of Milk Thistle. The terms Milk Thistle and Silymarin are often used interchangeably. Milk thistle products are popular in Europe and the United States for various types of liver disease. In many European countries, Milk Thistle is called Virgin Mary's gift. According to a legend, white spots on the plants leaves are the milk of Virgin Mary.
