Milk Thistle Tea | Cleanse Liver, Increase Brain and Bone Health
Originated from the Silybum Marianum plant (Silymarin), this herb is commonly used to cleanse the liver, gallbladder, increase brain function (prevent Alzheimers), and fight cancer. In addition, research has shown Milk Thistle to increase bone health and boost breast milk production.
Other benefits include clear skin, and healthy blood sugar metabolism.
To prepare Milk Thistle Tea, boil 1 oz of loose leaf tea in a gallon of water for 3 minutes, then let it steep for one hour. Bottle and refrigerate for later use. If you would like to add some flavor to this tea, it tastes delicious with ginger and honey. Neither of these additions take anything away from its health benefits.
