What is milk thistle?

Have you ever wondered what milk thistle is? Well, if you’re curious about this herb, this is the blog for you.

Milk thistle, also known as silybum marianum, looks a lot like a ‘normal’ thistle, complete with purple flowers but, beneath its spiky exterior, there’s something pretty special.

The milk thistle’s seeds are the part of the plant that’s used in supplements, whether this is equine or human. Milk thistle supplements are said to help support a healthy liver but this traditional herb has been used to support a range of organs and systems…and has done for many, many years.

If you want to feed the straight herb, you can buy Milk Thistle Seed or Milk Thistle Liquid…and we also do a Milk Thistle Liquid for pets. In addition to this, we have Cleanser, Old Horse Liquid Herbal Tincture and Respiratory Formula, all containing milk thistle in the liquid blend.
