Milk Thistle Capsules, Organic Fresh-ground®, 60 Caps
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.
