Milk Thistle, also known as Thistle Marie, is native to Mediterranean Europe and North Africa. In Portugal, this plant is a weed because it grows in wastelands. Besides, it is very familiar to the Portuguese Culture. Today, Milk Thistle is still used in the traditional production of cheeses such as “Serra da Estrela” and “Azeitão”. According to scientific data, Cardo Mariano has been used for more than 2000 years to treat liver and gall bladder diseases.
There are many legends surrounding the origin of her name. However, they all involve the Virgin Mary. The best-known legend tells that during Herod's persecution, in an attempt to save his son, Jesus, Marie hid in a forest full of thistles. This relationship between the thistle and Mary comes from the fact that she dropped some drops of her milk on the leaves of a thistle while breastfeeding her child. Hence, the characteristic white veins on the Milk Thistle.
