Product Description - Starwest Botanicals Organic Milk Thistle Seed Bulk 1lb.
Organic Milk Thistle Seed Whole
Milk Thistle Seeds also known by their scientific name, Silybum marianum, are truly a one of a kind herb. Milk Thistle Seed is world renowned for centuries because of a natural compound called silymarin found in it. Silymarin nourishes and replenishes the liver better than any other nutrient currently available. Since your liver acts as the body's filter, it constantly is cleansing it to keep you healthy from toxins. These toxins accumulate over time in the liver, and whole Milk Thistle Seeds are believed to hold potent antioxidant properties and rejuvenating actions that work to keep the liver strong and healthy.
Silybum marianum or Milk Thistle Seeds are native to the Mediterranean region and grow wild throughout the countryside?s of Europe, North America and Australia.
Milk Thistle Seeds Powder contains a flavonoid complex known as silymarin, which is the component responsible for all of the herb?s purported medical benefits. Milk Thistle Seed Powder is commonly used as a means to increase the secretion and flow of bile from the liver and gallbladder. Whole Milk Thistle Seed has a long-established use as a liver tonic, which has been supported by research. Studies have shown that Milk Thistle Seeds contain elements that protect liver cells from chemical damage.
Traditionally, Milk Thistle Seeds were used throughout Europe as a liver tonic, and current phytotherapy shows its implementation in a wide range of liver and gallbladder conditions, such as hepatitis and cirrhosis.
Milk Thistle Seeds Powder promotes milk secretion and has been recommended for breast feeding mothers.
