How does Blessed Thistle work?

Blessed thistle contains tannins which might help diarrhea, coughs, and inflammation. However, there isn't enough information to know how well blessed thistle might work for many of its uses.

Are there safety concerns?

Blessed thistle might be safe for most people. In high doses, such as more than 5 grams per cup of tea, blessed thistle can cause stomach irritation and vomiting.

Do not take blessed thistle if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You are allergic to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, or other members of this plant family (Asteraceae/Compositae).
  • You have stomach or intestinal problems such as infections, Crohn's disease, and other inflammatory conditions.
