WHAT IS THISTLE MARIE?
Often thought of as a weed, milk thistle (Silybum marianum) has been used for over 2000 years as a natural treatment to treat diseases of the liver and gallbladder.
He is originally from the Mediterranean region. The Greek physician and botanist Dioscorides was the first to describe the healing properties of milk thistle in AD 40.
But can milk thistle really help your liver?
Thorny but pretty, milk thistle is a plant with purple flowers and has white veins.
Let's discover together the meaning of the name of the milk thistle (silybum marianum) also known as the thistle of Our Lady or holy thistle.
The term Silybum designates in Greek and Latin "an edible thistle".
The qualifier marianium is linked to the Virgin Mary. A legend relates that the latter, traveling from Egypt to Palestine to escape King Herod, would have hidden the baby Jesus under a grove of thistles, where she would have given him the breast. A few drops of its milk fell on the leaves, hence the characteristic white veins of this species.
This legend may also be at the origin of a tradition that wanted the plant to facilitate lactation. This is because when the veins are torn or crushed, a milky white liquid results.
It is also sometimes called silymarin which is one of the main components of the seeds of the plant.
Although milk thistle has many detoxifying properties for the whole body, it is best known for its liver detoxification properties.
It is sometimes used to treat liver diseases such as cirrhosis, jaundice, and hepatitis, as well as gallbladder problems.
The liver is constantly working to defend us against toxins common in our daily life, acting as a filter and removing harmful substances from the body.
Milk thistle has been shown to reduce and reverse liver damage caused by prescription drugs, alcohol consumption, antibiotics, pollution, heavy metals, etc.
Finally, considered as a “hepatic, galactagogue, emollient and cholagogue” plant, milk thistle would have the particular advantage of promoting a healthy digestive function by promoting the formation of enzymes, by increasing the production of bile, by reducing the inflammation and soothing mucous membranes throughout the body.
