Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a flowering herb related to the daisy and ragweed family. It is native to Mediterranean countries, and grows prolifically in the United States as well. Some people also call it Mary thistle and holy thistle, due to the white veins on the leaf which fables indicate is the milk of Mother Mary. This plant is in the Asteraceae family, and grows as an annual or biennial plant. It’s a tall thistle plant with shiny pale green leaves with white veins, and has many spikes. It sports a large red to purple flowers in the fall. The part of the plant that is used as a remedy is the dried tiny fruit, that is often referred to as the seed. Milk thistle has been used for over 2000 years to support liver and gall bladder health. *
