ORGANIC milk thistle oil with unique nutritional properties
This cold-pressed milk thistle oil has a mild, slightly bitter taste. It is excellent for flavouring salad dressings, spreads and various dips. Because of its unique nutritional properties, you can also use it directly „by the spoonful“.
First mentioned in writings from ancient Greece
Probably the earliest mention of the colourful milk thistle is preserved in the writings of the eminent scientist Theophrastus, who literally dedicated his life to the herb and its effects. From the oily seeds of milk thistle and other herbs he developed a purifying tonic that was prescribed to people with liver ailments.[1,2]
Theophrastus's views were subsequently followed by Gaius Plinius Secundus, who recorded his findings on the supportive effects of milk thistle in detail in a natural history encyclopedia called Naturalis Historia. 
The knowledge of these two eminent figures was not wasted
The records served as a starting point for a group of German scientists who isolated the main active ingredient, Silymarin**, from the seeds **for the first time. This has been an officially recognised substance since 1968. [1, 2, 3]
Milk thistle (Silybum marianum L.) is an undemanding herb native to the Mediterranean. Its beautiful purple flowers give off dry seeds at the end of summer, from which the resulting oil is extracted. This is done in a very gentle way – by cold pressing.
Composition and properties
The composition of milk thistle oil consists mainly of unsaturated fatty acids, of which essential linoleic acid is the most abundant.
Due to the low pressing temperatures and the omission of the refining process, maximum amounts of valuable bioactive compounds, vitamins, provitamins and other beneficial substances are preserved in the resulting oil.
