Maybe nothing more needs to be said about milk thistle, than in the story of Winnie the Pooh, thistle is Eeyore, the donkey’s, favorite food!

That said, it is also useful to know that milk thistle is arguably the best liver tonic available. And in addition, it has other lesser-known healing powers.

These include:

  • Cancer Recovery: Milk thistle has been shown in studies to help reduce the negative side effects of cancer treatments improving results and increasing the chance for improved recovery.
  • Diabetes: Milk thistle has been shown in studies to reduce blood sugar levels and improve insulin resistance in type 2 diabetics.
  • Heart Health: Milk thistle has been shown in studies to help reduce LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels, especially in people with diabetes. It may also help prevent the elevation of liver enzymes that are a side effect of cholesterol-lowering medications such as statins.
  • Brain Function: Milk thistle’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help to improve brain function. Studies indicate that it is also able to reduce the number of amyloid plaques that build up between nerve cells as you age causing Alzheimer’s and dementia.
