In the Know

Blessed thistleMary thistleMarian thistleholy thistle … sounds biblical, doesn’t it? Logic would have us believe this is an ancient, spiritually relevant plant. For sure, milk thistle was first documented thousands of years ago, but where it actually got its biblical nickname, well, that we can’t say for sure.

What we do know for sure is that milk thistle is an annual or biannual plant with purple flowering heads, quite recognizable for its unique appearance, but not so well known as the basis for a healing, single herb tea. Not yet, anyway!

The first century Roman naturalist, Pliny the Elder, is known to have discovered milk thistle as useful when dealing with liver issues. Additionally, the Greek physician, Dioscorides, is said to have incorporated milk thistle into his kidney and liver disease healing regimes; he cites its use in his encyclopedia of medicinal plants that he created while traveling with the army. (A remarkable collection of information that was the authority on plant medicine for 1500 years!)

Why Drink Milk Thistle Tea?

Though you will likely not reach for the milk thistle for a tasty afternoon teatime treat, if you feel the need to sweep your liver and kidneys clean, you’ll want to partake. Further, milk thistle’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities make it a popular choice when wishing to protect your nerves against cell damage. Further, some purport milk thistle to have anti-aging qualities. Some studies have also indicated that milk thistle may even protect against bone loss.

What Does Buddha Teas Milk Thistle Tea Taste Like?

Not much, to be honest. But not to worry; we like adding a favorite flavor to our cup of beneficial Milk Thistle Tea, thereby creating a super healthy, tasty beverage.
