Product Description

Details

Milk thistle is known by many names-  and these name reveal that the plant has long been revered for its healing properties. It is known, for example, as blessed milk thistle,Marian thistle, Mary thistle, and Saint Mary's thistle, with clear connotations of healing power. The first written evidence of its use as a medicinal herb dates back to 40CE when the Greco-Roman Discorides wrote about using it to treat children and snake bites. The Roman writer Pliny the elder also referred to its healing powers.

More recently, renowned English herbalist Nicolas Culpepper sang its praises for treating liver complaints. Other names for milk thistle are more practical however-Mediterranean milk thistle, variegated thistle, and Scotch thistle. Do not let the name Scotch thistle fool you however, the milk thistle is actually very rare in Scotland!

Originally grown across Asia and the Mediterranean, milk thistle is now grown in sunnier climates worldwide and can be found further north too. It has proven antioxidant properties that can help detoxify the liver and help it stay healthy- and it is used extensively in Chinese medicine, with herbalists swearing by its healing functions. It has been tested extensively and used to treat a range of liver conditions, and we recommend it to compliment and support detoxing the liver or to help maintain healthy liver function.

Very high doses (600mg+) have have been shown to assist in managing diabetes in some studies, but never use milk thistle as a replacement to your doctor's guidance as research is still ongoing. The active ingredient Silymarin is most potent in the form of milk thistle capsules. The plant itself has been used as a foodstuff (anyone for roast thistle?), and the dehydrated leaves and seeds make a very pleasant sweet tea.

Our milk thistle herbal remedy is available in capsule form, to concentrate the plant’s benefits to the max. Unlike many other retailers all our Milk Thistle Capsules are 100% vegetarian, with no addition of gelatin.  

Fushi's nutriceuticals are vegetarian friendly and professionally formulated with 100 % pure active ingredients in bio available form for the best absorption.

These capsules have been very useful for me in reducing nausea from some necessary but harsh meds. I'm so glad I found them and I use them every day. I like that they are organic and without added colours. I have trouble swallowing so sometimes they don't

Milk thistle has helped with a toxic liver. I was taking it as a tincture but discovered that I needed a higher dosage so the capsules were more practical. It is helping with the tiredness I get from a sluggish liver and wouldn't do without it.

Great product - I bought this for the whole family. Considering the amount of chemicals we are exposed to day to day I think everyone needs to help their liver detoxify every so often
