How to Use Milk Thistle In Your Diet

Friday, 17 Jun 2011 03:34 PM

Milk thistle has many benefits including:

• It acts as a liver “detox” in addition to having anti-cancer properties.
• Milk thistle seeds help in curing and preventing lung, colon, skin, breast, prostate, and kidney cancer.
• Milk thistle’s antioxidant property is better than many vitamins, efficiently removing toxins and free radicals.

Ways to Add Milk Thistle in Your Diet:

• Tea: Milk thistle is available as packaged tea, or can be used in home-made tea. To do this put crushed milk thistle leaves and seeds in a muslin bag. Steep the bag in hot water for five minutes. Add honey for flavor.
• Diluted Milk Thistle Tincture: Add a few drops to a glass of water.
• Powdered Seeds: Sprinkle this powder on your burgers, smoothies, and salads.
• Milk Thistle as Salad Ingredient: Add milk thistle stalks, leaves, flowers, and roots to your diet as an ingredient in salads and cooked meals.
• As Smoothie ingredient: Milk thistle can be made into a delicious smoothie. Soak ground milk thistle seeds in water overnight. Then add chopped lycium berries and some lemon juice.
• Fruit Juice: Crushed milk thistle seeds can also be added to fruit juice.

Milk Thistle Supplements: These supplements come in the form of capsules, tablets, tinctures, and gels.

Milk thistle dosage: Ideal dosage is 100-250 mg per day. But excessive consumption may cause adverse effects including itching, nausea, stomach ache, headache, and skin rashes.
