Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle

It’s been a while since I posted about the benefits of spirulina and I promised to write about some of the other organic powders I use and why – so here I am and today we are talking about the mighty milk thistleย ๐Ÿ™‚

Milk thistle is part of the Asteraceae plant family which includes sunflowers and daisies and has strong anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits and is widely used to detoxify the body and more specifically, the liver.

The liverย helps defend us from toxins that are common in everyday life, acting like a filter and removing harmful substances from the body.ย Milk thistle assists this process and works by drawing out the nasty toxins that can cause disease and illness and has beenย shown to decrease, or even reverse signs ofย damage to the liver.

Milk thistle also helps protect the body from all kinds of free radicals due to the Vitamin C and E content, and these also help to slow down the ageing process! Hooray – sign me up!

Benefits of taking milk thistleย 

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-ageing effects
  • Helps to detox the liverย 
  • Promote healthy digestion
  • Can lower cholesterol
  • Can help to prevent or control diabetes
  • Helps protect against cancer and other diseases

Milk thistle supplementation is not known to cause any major side effects however, as with any herbal medication, it is always best to seek professional medical advice if you are on any form of medications as it could interfere with them.ย
