Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum)



Milk Thistle (Sylibum marianus) is thought of as one of the most authoritative herbal liver tonics and restoratives and the use of Milk Thistle can be retraced more than 2000 years.

This herb is a member of the sunflower family and is synonymous with the liver. The liver's job is to eliminate toxins from the body and it sometimes needs help especially during times of stress - for example, when a dog is given a potentially toxic drug or treatment like chemotherapy, or after vaccination or an anesthetic.

This would have a direct impact on conserving the overall systemic wellness of your dog as the liver is one of the most crucial organs in the body.

Milk thistle helps guard the liver when toxicity is high. Many herbalists advocate giving this herb only when it is required, not as a general liver tonic, as it can negatively affect liver function if given randomly. It's also important to avoid this herb if your dog is pregnant.

It has been subjected to numerous clinical trials which distinctly endorse it's effectiveness. Scientific analysis of this herb shows that it accommodates a flavonoid complex called silymarin, which is mostly responsible for the healing benefits of this herb. Silymarin is a well known anti-oxidant.
