Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle is a biennial plant, originally native to Southern Europe and Asia, which is now found around the planet. The remedial usage of Milk Thistle has been ongoing for over 2000 years. We have ancient records of the Romans, in the first century A.D., that describe how the plant was used as a liver-protector.

Ever since, it has been used throughout both British and American history as a natural solution for liver problems. However, as well as this, the plant was also cultivated for food consumption, with the flowerhead being eaten much like an artichoke, along with the leaves being consumed as a spinach substitute.

This shows how crucial the plant was to everyday life and how it can still hold benefits within the modern world.
