marianum) is regarded as one of the most important herbal
liver tonics and restoratives. The medical use of Milk Thistle may be traced back
more than 2000 years. Milk Thistle has been subject to many clinical trials
which clearly demonstrate its effectiveness. It is frequently recommended to
counteract the harmful effects of prescription drugs and vaccinations on the
liver and clinical studies have shown that it helps the liver to return to
normal functioning. Scientific analysis of Milk Thistle shows that it contains a
flavonoid complex called silymarin, which is largely responsible for the medical
benefits of this herb. Silymarin is a powerful anti-oxidant and can block the
entrance of toxins into the liver and remove toxins at cellular level, thereby
resulting in regeneration of liver cells and improved liver functioning. This
would have a direct impact on the overall systemic health of your pet as the
liver is one of the most important organs in the body.
