Milk Thistle Leaf (Silybum marianum)

Latin Name: Silybum marianum
Common Names: Milk Thistle Leaf

Milk Thistle Leaf, also known as Silybum marianum, is native to the Mediterranean region and grows wild throughout Europe, North America and Australia. It got the name Milk Thistle Leaf because it grows with white veins appearing as though milk were spilled upon them. According to many legends, this appearance of milk is actually the milk of the Virgin Mary.

The plant once was cultivated, with its young leaves being used as a salad in the spring, or sometimes boiled. The young stalks of the Silybum marianum were peeled, and soaked in water to make them less bitter. The second spring the root is eaten like salsify, and the receptacle is pulpy, tasting and eaten much like artichokes.

Good product.....good price!

Product: Organic Milk Thistle Leaf C/S

If my liver could talk...

It would kiss me for putting it on a diet and taking a load off it's overworked tissue so it can function properly.

Everything came in fresh. Packaging is tight. It makes a great add to my salads, veggies and tea. It's a great double duty combo with the seeds too.

I'm very pleased to find non-GMO nature's bounty that feeds the sole and revitalizes my precious liver.

Thank you!
