Ah, milk thistle.
An interesting herb.
And the health benefits of it are numerous, but before we get to them, let’s look at where it comes from, shall we?
Milk thistle is a member of the daisy and ragweed family.
It’s a native Mediterranean plant that has been touted for its natural healing abilities and used as a natural supplement for more than 2000 years.
With such a long track record, there must be something to this natural all-around phenomenon.
It was first used by early physicians as a treatment for the kidneys, spleen, and veins, milk thistle now has a long list of other potential uses and great benefits.
