Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum)

Milk Thistle

Detoxifying and liver supporting plant

Writing in the first century AD, Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder hailed the benefits of milk thistle for cleansing bile. Its reputation as a liver tonic has only continued to grow over the centuries and has been broadly researched for its potentially positive effect on toxicity and liver support.

Milk thistle is a favorite of many herbalists to cleanse and purify the body, as well as to nourish and build overall systemic wellness. Its mild and slightly sweet flavor makes it one of the better tasting herbs. One can think of Milk Thistle as a friend who reminds you to take deep breaths and thank your body for all the hard work it does to help you reach your goals.
