Organic Milk Thistle (Organic Silybum Marianum)

Details :

  • Common Name : Milk Thistle
  • Other Name : St. Mary’s Thistle.
  • Botanical Name : Silybum Marianum (L.) Gaertn.

 

Silybum marianum  has other  common names  include  cardus marianus,  milk thistle,blessed milkthistle,  Marian thistle and  Mary thistle. This species is an  annual  or  biennialplant of the  Asteraceae  family. This fairly typical  thistle  has red to purple flowers and shiny pale green leaves with white veins. Originally a native of Southern Europe through to Asia, it is now found throughout the world.

Milk thistle is grown successfully on a range of soil types, from sandy soils to much heavier clay soils. Milk thistle is directly seeded in soils. Sowing occurs in autumn and spring, and row spacing is usually 40–75cm, with 20–30cm between plants in the row.

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum L. Gaertn.) is the most researched plant for the treatment of liver disease. Its therapeutic properties are due to the presence of silymarin, a mixture of three flavonolignans (silybin, silydianin and silycristin). The seeds contain the highest amount of silymarin, but the whole plant is used medicinally.
