Our Milk Thistle Seed for dogs and cats is freshly ground in small batches for optimum freshness and healing benefits. We use only USDA organic milk thistle seeds to ensure your dog or cat gets the very finest product free of pesticides and other chemicals that could additionally stress your companion's liver.
The use of milk thistle for your dog or cat is supported by substantial research detailing the protecting and healing effects it has on the liver. The focus has primarily been on a complex of flavolignans called silymarin. These constituents found in milk thistle have been shown to protect the liver from damage related to toxins and disease. In studies, silymarin has also been shown to reverse damage to this very important organ by promoting the growth of new liver cells.
The pharmaceutical/medical industry increasingly focuses on a single constituent of a plant that they can extract, study, trademark and then profit. This strategy is no different for milk thistle and silymarin. Those of us that work with herbs everyday view this much differently and understand that the whole herb has many constituents that science hasn't studied and doesn't understand. We experience much better results with whole herb supplements and clients express to us that they notice better results for their dogs or cats as well.
This organic milk thistle seed can be used alone of course, but it is wonderful when combined with our Liver Tonic that can additionally help the liver by gently detoxifying your animal's liver, kidneys, blood and lymphatic system.
