MILK THISTLE

Leave a comment

The seeds of this beautiful purple-flowered plant help to protect the liver; having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, they help prevent and repair damage caused to the liver whether from alcohol, chemicals or medications.  The milky veins of its leaves were thought to have come from milk spilt by the Virgin Mary.
