The Health Benefits of Milk Thistle
Did you know that
Did you know Milk Thistle is an herb that’s been used for thousands of years to support liver, kidney, and gallbladder health?
It contains the flavonoid silymarin, which is thought to be responsible for many of its beneficial effects, including liver protection and antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The liver is actually our largest internal organ and is responsible for performing a number of essential detoxifying functions.
The condition of our blood throughout our whole body is mostly reliant on the health of our liver. As a “blood purifier,” the liver needs to actively clean the blood each and every day in order to support nearly every system within our body.
As a liver support and liver aid, milk thistle is a powerful detoxifier. It helps rebuild liver cells while removing toxins from the body that are processed through the liver. Milk thistle is effective at naturally reversing the harmful effects of alcohol consumption, pesticides in our food supply, and heavy metals in our water supply, pollution in the air that we breathe in and even poisons! Milk thistle has been known to be a therapeutic treatment for various liver diseases, including fatty liver syndrome, damage from alcoholism, jaundice, psoriasis, hepatitis and others. This herb is a must for cleansing and for anyone with any sort of liver dysfunction or exposure to toxins.
