What Does Blessed Thistle Do For You?

Blessed thistle is not the same as milk thistle, but is also known as holy thistle and St. Benedicts thistle. If you are a nursing mother it can improve the flow of milk, and this property is supported by the Canadian Breastfeeding Foundation when it is used together with fenugreek. It also improves the flow of urine and is a diuretic.

Blessed thistle is also believed to possess anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, and to improve your mental function. Like most natural remedies, these properties of blessed thistle have not been sufficiently researched for definitive claims to be made. Nevertheless, it has a history of use for these and other health benefits that will likely be proved sometime in the future, just like the vast majority of other traditional remedies.

It's worth taking if you want protection against inflammation and perhaps some cancers, or if your milk flow is drying up, but your child refuses to believe it!

The Constituents of Blessed Thistle

Blessed thistle has a traditional use as an antiseptic and antibiotic for treating boils, wounds and other suppurating conditions, although its properties have yet to be proved scientifically. It is also a diuretic, anti-inflammatory and is used for indigestion, diarrhea and for its cytotoxic effect against cancer cells. Like any natural remedy, the properties of which are not officially accepted due to a lack of clinical proof (AKA being largely untested), the properties claimed after centuries of use can generally be theoretically confirmed by an investigation of its phytochemical constituents.

The constituents of blessed thistle include sesquiterpene lactone glycosides, triterpenes, lignans, flavonoids and tannins. These are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, while the polyacetylenes, essential oils and cnicin it contains are known antibiotics. Cnicin is anti-inflammatory, and the bitter flavonoids have been shown to strengthen cell walls of arteries, veins and capillaries, and therefore improve blood circulation.

The science demonstrates the viability of blessed thistle as meeting most of the claims made for it. All that is needed is clinical proof on human subjects, and while we wait for that we may as well take it as a supplement as the long-lived Mediterranean cultures have being doing for centuries!
