Lead author of the study, Fallah Huseini, from the Institute of Medicinal Plants, said: “The results are very encouraging, and we now need to do further large multi-centre studies.”

The researchers noted: “The results show that although there were no statistically significant differences between the two groups of patients at the beginning of the study, milk thistle extracts significantly lower fasting blood glucose levels in diabetics at the end of the study.”

The herbal supplement was also shown to have a significant lowering effect on LDL cholesterol levels in diabetics.

In fact, LDL cholesterol levels were reduced by 12 percent, as was total cholesterol, after treatment with the milk thistle supplements.
