The present review is basically focused on the medicinal importance of Silybum marianum. Its utility as a medicinal plant for the treatment of various disorders of brain, cardiac, hepatic, kidney, oxidative stress and cancer is well known.

However, it may cause mild nausea or gastrointestinal troubles in rare cases. Several drugs containing Silybum contents in one or the other form/combinations are available in the market. It is distributed throughout the world. In India, it is found along roadsides and barren lands. Leaves, seeds or sometimes the whole plant is used in one or the other medicinal preparation.
