ABSTRACT

El hígado es el encargado de la homeostasis y de metabolizar diversas sustancias (endógenas y exógenas, incluyendo fármacos), las cuales al metabolizarse generan metabolitos más tóxicos y/o reactivos; por esto el hígado es más susceptible de sufrir algún daño como cirrosis, esteatosis y/o hasta hepatocarcinoma. El ser humano ha empleado diversas plantas medicinales (PM) desde tiempos ancestrales para tratar sus padecimientos, enfermedades y dolencias; entre ellas esta Sylibum marianum. Planta utilizada en el tratamiento de ictericia u otras enfermedades biliares; así como, en terapia de apoyo en la intoxicación por hongos y en el tratamiento de diversas enfermedades hepáticas. A partir de esta especie medicinal se obtiene la silimarina (mezcla de flavonoides), esta sustancia tiene importante efecto antioxidante, también tiene diversas actividades biológicas como hepatoprotector. Esta actividad se ha demostrado mediante diversos estudios preclínicos y clínicos. --- The liver is in charge of homeostasis and of metabolizing various substances (endogenous and exogenous, including drugs), many of which, when metabolized, generate more toxic and/or reactive metabolites, for this reason, the liver is more susceptible to suffer some damage such as cirrhosis, steatosis and/or even hepatocarcinoma.
