Help maintain good liver function in your pet with our high-grade Milk Thistle Tablets for dogs and cats. The liver is the ultimate multi-tasker, involved in almost all body processes, including the production of essential proteins, immunity and nutrient storage. It is also a powerhouse when it comes to toxins, removing and neutralising harmful substances from the circulation. Our supplement naturally supports the liver, using pure milk thistle from whole fruit extract. It is high in silymarin, but also benefits from the other active compounds found in milk thistle fruits.
One of Milk Thistle’s major actions is as an antioxidant. Antioxidants are required to neutralise unstable molecules called ‘free radicals’ which are produced during metabolic activity – something the liver does a lot of. A liver under pressure is more vulnerable to the effects of free radicals, at a time when it is likely producing more of them. Milk Thistle also helps to maintain the stability of cell membranes of liver cells. This structure of the cell is essential to protect it against damage and prevent the infiltration of toxins and infectious agents.
The body’s soldiers – the immune cells – are vitally important in fighting infectious attacks. Milk Thistle has been shown to support specific immune cells called lymphocytes.
