Milk Thistle Powder
Milk thistle Powder comes from the Milk Thistle plant which is a flowering plant of the sunflower family. It is native to the Mediterranean region, North Africa, and the Middle East, but can be found growing in Oregon and Washington along with herbs like Devil’s Club and Oregon Grape. Silymarin, contained in the seed shell of milk thistle, has liver regenerative properties and acts as an antioxidant. Milk thistle can help revitalise the liver of frequent drinkers, recovering alcoholics, and anyone taking hard drugs or prescriptions for a long period of time. Along with regenerating the liver, milk thistle helps protect the liver against damage from toxins and viruses.
In extract form, it can also help with seasonal allergies. Combined with peppermint leaf and chamomile, milk thistle can help with heartburn, acid reflux, stomach pains, nausea, and vomiting. In large amounts, milk thistle may cause mild diarrhea.
