Tannins, which are chemicals found in blessed thistle, might help with diarrhea, a cough, and swelling.
People use blessed thistle for indigestion, infections, wounds, and many other problems, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. Milk thistle is not the same as blessed thistle. These are different.
Adults have most often used blessed thistle as a tea in the past. A liquid extract is also made from it. Talk to a doctor or nurse to find out what kind of medicine and how much you should take for a certain condition.
The Benedictine liqueur is made with a secret recipe that includes blessed thistle. The story goes that in 1510, a Benedictine monk named Don Bernardo Vincelli came up with the recipe for this liqueur, which has 27 different herbs in it, such as angelica, hyssop, and lemon balm. Only three people on earth (at the same time) are said to know the full recipe for making it.

◉ Digestion - Blessed thistle has a chemical called cnicin, which is found in a lot of bitter herbs. It is thought that cnicin makes the body make more saliva and stomach acid, both of which help digestion.
This may be why blessed thistle has been used for a long time to treat gas, diarrhea, and stomach pain.
◉ Skin infections - Blessed thistle is a plant in the family Asteraceae. A study done in 2015 showed that plants in this family have antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties that can be measured. This shows that the traditional use of blessed thistle as a topical treatment for small cuts and wounds might be based on some science.
◉ Liver Protection - Blessed Thistle is a cholagogue herb, which means it helps the liver make more bile, which helps clean out the liver. This, in turn, makes symptoms of bad liver function like tiredness, loss of appetite, nausea, and brain fog go away. People who need to get their appetite back after being sick or getting treatments that can make them lose their appetite are often told to take this herb.
◉ Anti-Microbial - Polyacetylene and cnicin, which are found in Blessed Thistle, can help your body fight off bacterial infections. Some studies have shown that these compounds are effective against Bacillus subtilis, Brucella species, Escherichia coli, Proteus species, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus faecalis.
