LIVER HEALTH - The liver works to keep the body free of harmful substances and toxins. The seeds have long been associated with wellness benefits and modern research has verified most of those historical uses. Milk thistle seed supports a healthy liver and historically has been used as a liver tonic and in various digestive formulas.
VERSATILE USES - Milk thistle seed can be consumed in many ways, as a tea, in capsules, as a tincture and of course in food. Use the whole seed to sprinkle on salads, sandwiches, and mix in with trail mix, or easily ground down the seed to incorporate into tea, baked goods, and smoothies.
ORIGIN/SOURCING - Used for centuries as food and for its healthful properties, milk thistle seed has a long tradition of use in herbalism. The seeds originate from Bulgaria and are harvested from the milk thistle seed pod once ripe and dried.
