Product Information:

Milk Thistle Standardized by Natures Way.

Early Europeans boiled and ate the leaves like artichokes and used them as a spring tonic after the winter months when people had been deprived of fresh vegetables. This plant was also used to increase breast-milk production, and was considered excellent for melancholy (depression), which they thought was associated with the liver. Milk Thistle has anticancer and anti-inflammatory properties, and even though the names are similar, Milk Thistle is an entirely different plant than Blessed Holy Thistle.

After medical research on the medicinal effects of Milk Thistle, Germany’s Commission E approved an oral extract of Milk Thistle as a treatment for liver disease which includes alcoholic hepatitis, fatty liver, mild liver cirrhosis, liver poisoning and acute viral hepatitis. It also can protect the liver from the effects of liver-toxic medications. Evidence has shown anticancer effects against breast and prostate cancer, and it is also recommended for gall bladder and psoriasis, though there is no conclusive evidence that it works for these conditions. When taken intravenously, silybinin, the potent and collective ingredient in Milk Thistle, is the only known antidote to poisoning by the deathcap mushroom, Amanita phalloides. There is no real equivalent in the world of conventional medicine for Milk Thistle.

Directions: Take 1 capsule three times daily with food or water.
