Milk Thistle (Silymarin) has been well studied & provides significant protection in liver disorders, kidney & pancreatic disease. It has been shown to reduce toxic damage to the liver & help control excess lipids in the blood.
As well as being protective for the liver, milk thistle has been shown to reduce impact of acute stress via increasing insulin sensitivity & reducing cortisol levels in the horses body. Better control of blood glucose shows beneficial effects for horses at risk of laminitis. Sport horses may cope better with the stressors they are exposed to with quicker recovery.
