Milk Thistle: A Liver’s Best Friend

Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum)

At Chew on This Dog Barkery, we are always learning more about the products we offer and products we SHOULD be offering. Recently, we added Milk Thistle to our line up of supplements to provide our customers with a product that will help dogs with allergies and digestive issues.

Milk Thistle, or Silymarin, is a powerful antioxidant. It is a natural support for the liver, helping to not only eliminate toxins but also to help regenerate liver tissue. It is ideal for dogs going through chemotherapy or just needing to flush their system of other allergens.

Another great time to use milk thistle is post-vaccination. It is a great source of free radical scavengers and it helps to preserve the supply of glutathione, another important protein that naturally declines over time. This protein’s depletion can speed up the aging process.

Milk thistle is a gentle, herbal aid for all kinds of dogs. If you decide to give this a try, be sure to choose a supplier that makes a quality product, using not only organically harvested thistle but also has an excellent reputation for consistent herbal remedy production. We carry Herbsmith Milk Thistle but can also recommend a few other brands if you would like to try them.
