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 with powerful antioxidant function.*
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.
