Science Supplements LiverAid is an advanced nutritional support supplement for horses requiring support for Liver function.
The Liver plays a vital role in multiple body systems including digestion, energy metabolism and the immune system. The blood supply from the small intestine goes straight to the Liver, making it vulnerable to pathogens and toxins from the digestive tract which have managed to get into the blood.
An example of this are fungal mycotoxins which are commonly present in forage and grains and can lead to liver damage.
Milk Thistle has been recommended to support liver function for many years, and rightly so. This herb contains Silymarin, which has anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, antifibrotic, antioxidant, and liver-regenerating properties.
In LiverAid, we use a concentrated extract of Milk Thistle, which contains 80% Silymarins. This makes the daily serving of LiverAid equivalent to 120g of standard Milk Thistle Powder.
LiverAid also contains additional Vitamins A, D, E and K. These vitamins are all fat soluble, and their absorption is often impaired when the Liver is inflamed.
Additional Vitamin C is included as the horse would naturally produce this itself in the Liver.
As Liver function may be impaired highly absorbable Ascorbyl Monophosphate is provided to ensure an anti-oxidant deficiency does not occur.
