Why is Milk Thistle Included in my Glaucoma Supplement Program?
Silymarin, also known as milk thistle extract, shows antioxidant,
anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory actions (as well as its
well-known liver-protective effects). In one study Silymarin suppressed
TNF-alpha activation and blocked oxidative stress. We know that TNF
alpha plays a role in glaucoma, as does oxidative stress.
