It can be a pain to take care of ourselves.
The amount of time and money that the media has spent trying to convince us we need expensive medications to even have a chance at good health is absurd.
I’m bringing you an incredibly effective, all-natural ingredient that can turn your health, and life, around.
Milk thistle may not be an ingredient you’re very familiar with, but it provides a substantial number of benefits that we all need, without the side effects of prescription medications.
What is milk thistle?
Milk thistle is a flowering herb in the asteraceae family which also includes daisies and ragweed.
The main use of milk thistle is for detoxification purposes, especially when it comes to our livers.
Chock-full of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, milk thistle promotes healthy digestive function by assisting with increased bile production, decreased inflammation, and enzyme formation.
It also helps to soothe mucous membranes throughout the body.
So, how does it work?
Milk thistle works by drawing toxins out of the body.
These toxins can cause a whole host of symptoms and diseases, including high cholesterol, diabetes, kidney stones, gall bladder disorders, skin damage, negative chemotherapy effects, and more.
Milk thistle also helps to fight free radicals and to slow down the aging process.
What liver diseases can it treat?
Milk thistle treats a range of liver disease, including:
- Fatty liver syndrome
- Cirrhosis (damage from alcoholism)
How can I take milk thistle?
The easiest way to consume milk thistle is as a supplement, with your regular vitamins.
You can also find milk thistle in many teas, and it can be combined with other similar herbs.
How does milk thistle help cancer patients?
Some people believe milk thistle can be an effective, all-natural way of treating cancer patients.
The substances in milk thistle, such as silymarin, have been shown in laboratory studies to have potential anti-cancer effects.
These effects include stopping cancer cells from dividing and multiplying, reducing the blood supply to tumors, as well as shortening the lifespan of cancer cells.
Are there potential side effects?
As with most supplements, if taken in excessive amount milk thistle has the potential to cause stomach upset.
The best way to avoid this is to start taking milk thistle in small quantities and slowly increase the dosage as your body acclimates to the supplement.
Leading healthier lives is so important, but can also be difficult for people, depending on their income and time availability.
All-natural alternatives are often safer and far cheaper than prescription medications and can prevent a host of side effects waging war on your body.
If you’ve been having problems with your liver and nothing seems to be helping, give milk thistle a try.
The risk is far more minimal than trying a hundred different liver pills, and the cost is much easier on your wallet.
What excuse do you have to not try it?
