Our Milk Thistle

Harvested across Europe

Our milk thistle is harvested in Austria, the Czech Republic and Germany, where it has been planted since the Middle Ages. The flower is farmed for its seeds, which contain Silymarin, a unique flavanoid complex and powerful antioxidant.

Extracted in Spain

Our milk thistle is extracted in Spain using ethanol, a consumable form of alcohol, as a solvent. Other milk thistle extracts commonly use harsh extraction solvents. Following extraction, the milk thistle is dried and analyzed before being shipped to the United States for testing and encapsulation.
