The milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a remarkably pretty, violet-flowering plant with spiky stems and leaves which belongs to the composite plants. It is mainly to be found in the Mediterranean region, and grows there on dry, stony ground, at the sides of paths and livestock pastures. From its seed-like fruit, an effective substance complex can be obtained which is named based on the scientific designation for the milk thistle, Silymarin.
