Milk Thistle Seed
Milk Thistle seed is a powerful antioxidant. It helps fight the damaging effects of free radicals, decreasing or eliminating many age-related diseases. It stimulates basic liver function and rebuilds liver cells that have been damaged by illness, rich food, hepatitis, or alcohol consumption. The seeds are rich in a substance called silymarin, which stimulated the liver cells to regenerate through a process known as protein synthesis. Milk thistle seed has remarkable properties to protect the liver against damaging chemicals. The most effective method to extract the active ingredients from the hard seeds of the milk thistle is to grind them in a coffee mill or smash them with a hammer. The resulting powder is tasty and can be made into a tea, added to cereal and soups.

5 Warming Teatails
What is your idea of cozy? A hot cup of tea with a good book? A glass of wine by the fireplace? Or simply, comfy clothes and a strong cocktail?
If these all sound about right, you will love the cozy teatail recipes below. To get started, here is a highlight on a few of the ingredients we’re using:
- Whisky – Whisky is a pretty easy way to make your drink warming. It has long been used as the beverage of choice to warm up on a cold night, and even used to soothe during times of illness.
- Chai – Chai could mean many things, so we’re going to use our Chai blend as a reference. Some of the spices in Chai are warming, such as ginger, pepper and cinnamon. Other ingredients are reminiscent of cozy times, such as cloves, that might make you think of the holidays.
- Ginger – Ginger is an easy way to make any beverage warming. The spicy, gingery flavour adds a kick to any tea or cocktail.
