Milk Thistle Oil
· Food supplement ·
The milk thistle – also known as Our Lady’s thistle or the Holy thistle – was grown back in medieval times in monastery gardens for healing purposes. This oil, cold-pressed from the seeds of the milk thistle, is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and is high in nutritional value. Replacing saturated fatty acids with polyunsaturated fatty acids in nutri-tion contributes to the preservation of normal blood cholesterol levels.
In addition, the oil is rich in Vitamin E, which helps protect the cells against oxidative stress – some 25 ml of the virgin Milk Thistle Oil already meets 90% of our daily requirements of this important vitamin.

Where does the vitamin E come from? Was it added to the oils artificially?
Vitamin E occurs naturally in cold-pressed cooking oils because the plants make this vitamin and, due to its chemical properties, it passes to the cooking oil during cold pressing. Incidentally, the following are especially high in vitamin E: natural Sunflower Oil, natural Safflower Oil and natural or roasted Almond Oil.
