Milk thistle, scientifically known as Silybum marianum, is a perennial herb that contains seeds which are not only edible, but also have a great flavor and a wide variety of health benefits. The plant itself is very dense and has a prickly, purple flower head that sits at the top. Milk thistle’s active ingredient, silybum, is extracted from the seeds which come from the head of the plant once it’s started to dry out. Then, the seeds can be used whole or ground into a fine powder and they incorporate well into your daily diet.
- Uses: This botanical can be used as a dietary supplement, topical treatment, or tea. Try adding the seeds to your favorite salad or ground into a powder to use in smoothies and coffee.
- Benefits: Milk thistle has many restorative benefits. It is commonly used to support liver detoxification, bone health, and a healthy immune system. It’s also a strong antioxidant and contains anti-inflammatory properties.
