    "Surprisingly informative!"

    As the titles says, this book goes over the core health benefits to including a milk thistle supplement in your life. Covering info on where to find a quality supplement, the health benefits, and medical studies, this book is a good resource for folks interested in herbal remedies and treatments.

    I was impressed with this book for two reasons: 1) It doesn’t fall into the pit of false claims to cure all your ailments as so many herbal treatment/remedy books do; and 2) The book references concrete scientific data on the supplement and does not promise anything beyond that. While this book does have plenty of plant biology and pharmaceutical terms, I think most folks who have a solid interest in herbal treatments will be able to follow along. Even if you find the scientific terms daunting, the author then follows up with a simple translation for those not versed in pharmaceutical or scientific terms.

    Truly, I was surprised at how much information the author was able to impart in just an hour. I especially appreciated the information on what to look for in a quality supplement. As many folks know, not every supplement is created equal as there is no government oversight or requirements to do so. I also enjoyed the slight detour into the historical uses and knowledge of the milk thistle.

    Overall, this is a great little book to get you started on learning about supplements, especially the milk thistle, or to be used as a refresher for those who already have a knowledge base.

    The Narration: Jake Stevens did a really good job with all the scientific terms. Most of those terms I am familiar with and he nailed the pronunciation. Also, he was able to impart a touch of excitement to the narration while remaining professional.

    Story
    "Milk Thistle"

    I've always thought the Thistle plant was beautiful and as a kid, every time I saw one, I'd pick it which is what my mom taught me to do. Therefore I knew it contained a milky substance. It's considered a pesky weed and can affect crop growth but its actually an herbal plant.

    Thistle has also been called Saint Mary's Thistle, Holy Thistle, and Blessed Thistle among a few others. It's been known to treat hepatic problems, as well as kidney and gall bladder issues. It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Silymarin is the active bio-chemical found in the Thistle plant. The seeds are ground up for use and it isn't water soluble.

    The Thistle plant is native to the Mediterranean region and is now grown all over the world. It's a fairly tall leafy plant growing up to 7 inches. The leaves were commonly used in the European diet.

    It can be purchased OTC in many forms and is commonly taken by capsule. Do not use this without talking to your doctor. It isn't covered under the FDA but is sold as a dietary supplement.

    Jake Stevens did a good job narrating this audiobook. He passed along important information in a clear and concise manner making it easy to follow. He made it an overall interesting listen.

    Audiobook received in exchange for an honest review.
