Holy thistle has been use for centuries. I found that it Blessed Thistle was used as it’s name too. Blessed Thistle is in Iaso tea as well. So that would make me think there are two different plants. But they seem to have the same benefits. But do not confuse it with Milk Thistle.
There are records that day back to the early sixteen century per http://www.medicinalherbs-4u.com/holy-thistle.html. It was used to treat smallpox, fever, anorexia, and dyspepsia. Blessed Thistle was used in the Middle Ages to treat bubonic plague!!! Now I know you are excited.
What I find helpful is that it benefits in detoxing and purification of the blood circulatory system, mood enhancer, pain reducer, cleanse out bacteria, help your body cut down on unwanted fat, and build the immune system. Some people have used it to help with liver problems, because of the silymarin substance in it.
It is recommended to drink it as a tea twice a day which will also help migraine suffers.
Cautions are if you are allergic to Mild Weed, which I am and I don’t have a problem with Holy Thistle in Iaso Tea. Also warning if you have Crohn’s disease, inflammatory conditions, and pregnant. It has actually help my inflammatory conditions. Probably because I’m not drinking it 100%, there are other herbs in the Iaso Tea.
