Milk thistle, which is a member of the Aster- aceae family,, has a history of improving liver function, especially when toxins are involved. It has been used for over 2,000 years to treat liver, kidney, and gall bladder disorders. It was thought to cure rabies and was used as an antimalarial. The leaves and stems have been used in cooking. A related species is Carduus marianus.

Action: Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, galactagogic (increases breast milk production), hepatoprotective.

Milk thistle can be helpful in the treatment
of Lyme disease, as it can help to reduce cell damage, toxins, viruses, and inflammation. Not regulating glucose levels can impair immune function and the body’s ability to get rid of bacteria. Regulating sugar levels could therefore also have significant benefits in supporting people with Lyme disease.

Inflammation: Milk thistle’s polyphenolic flavonoids, first found in the seeds, have antioxidant properties. They break down to silymarin, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties by blocking inflam- mation pathways.

Immunity: Milk thistle supports liver function. The liver plays a vital role as part of the immune system: it is the first line of defence. Kupffer cells found in the liver are macrophages, which defend the body against blood-borne disease.
