The secrets of Milk Thistle
This week, we’re discovering Milk Thistle!
We’ve included Milk Thistle in our Nourish Capsules, so let’s dive in and get to know this popular ingredient.
Beneficial properties of Milk Thistle
Milk thistle is a herbal remedy derived from the purple-flowering milk thistle plant.
Plant compounds extracted from milk thistle are known to have antioxidant, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
In Ancient Greece, the physician and botanist Dioscorides was the first to describe the therapeutic properties of milk thistle, documenting its use as a snakebite antidote.
Can milk thistle help my liver?
Milk thistle is often hailed for its liver-protecting effects.
Some early research suggests milk thistle may aid people with alcohol-related liver disease.
Although more research is needed, milk thistle is thought to reduce damage to the liver caused by free radicals, which are produced when your liver metabolises toxic substances.
