Blessed thistle is a plant native to the Mediterranean region that has been used for centuries as a traditional folk remedy. In the 17th century in England, Blessed Thistle was traditionally used to support female overall health as well as maintain the health of the liver. Blessed thistle may support healthy circulation and stimulate milk production in nursing mothers. It may stimulate the production of digestive juices and bile and support healthy digestion and the body's natural detoxification process. It may also increase the circulation of blood to the brain, heart, and lungs, supporting their healthy functioning.*
