What Milk thistle herb Is:

Perhaps one of herbal medicine's best-kept secrets and one of American medicine's most glaring oversights, this plant has been used for liver ailments for a couple of thousand years. Native to Europe but now growing along both coasts of North America, milk thistle is an attractive, edible plant with fuzzy, reddish purple flowers. A white veinlike pattern, said in European lore to represent drops of the Virgin Mary's breast milk, decorates its spiny-edged leaves. The markings gave rise to two of the plant's other names, Mary's thistle and holy thistle, and to its folk use as a stimulant of breast milk.

Milk thistle herb, which is native to Europe and some parts of the USA, has powerful liver-protecting properties. It prevents damage and improves function.
