The medicinal properties and benefits of milk thistle have been recognized for over 2,000 years. There are records dating back to the 1st century that indicate the use of this plant by the Romans, as a protective agent for the liver. Medical records dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries also mention milk thistle in the treatment of ailments. Find out more about the medicinal properties and benefits of this plant below.


Milk thistle is recommended for treating jaundice, hepatitis, gallstones, cirrhosis, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, indigestion, diabetes (type two) and cholesterol. Milk thistle is a plant rich in hepatoprotective substances such as silymarin and silybin with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory potential. Of these substances, silymarin stands out, as it is considered to be primarily responsible for regenerating liver cells and stimulating bile. As well as acting as a detoxifying tea for the body, Milk Thistle Tea can help strengthen the immune system, control acne and improve memory.
