St Mary’s Thistle Seed (Milk Thistle) Powder
The primary use of Milk Thistle is to protect liver cells from damage. It is excellent to take before and after consuming rich greasy foods, drugs, alcohol, coffee and exposure to toxins – great for hangover prevention! It is also used for jaundice, liver problems, cirrhosis and all gall-bladder issues. Milk Thistle is also used (as the name indicates) to promote breastmilk production, and is perfectly safe for nursing mothers.
Add ground seeds to food. Use 1 gram (1/2 teaspoon) per serve. Add hot water, brew for 10 minutes. Sediment may be ingested. Can also be added to fruit juices and smoothies.
