Milk Thistle Tea

Milk Thistle (or St. Mary Thistle, Holy Thistle and Lady's Thistle), comes from the Latin name of Silybum marianum. The term 'Milk Thistle' derives from the milky white fluid that comes from the plants leaves when they are crushed. The plants remedial capabilities have been known since ancient times- first mentioned by Theophrastus in the 4th Century B.C by the name of “Pternix” and also named in the 1st Century A.D as Sillybum and is still being used today as a treatment for liver aliments. Milk thistle extract is used to maintain liver health, protect the liver from toxins such as alcohol, pollution, and liver related diseases.
