Artichoke and Milk Thistle has been formulated with extracts from the artichoke flower and milk thistle seed, to provide natural support to the liver and aid in healthy digestion. This supplement also serves as an antioxidant to provide overall support to the immune system.
Before using this supplement, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian or our veterinary support team if there are any ongoing medical concerns, including diabetes, issues with the gall bladder, or kidney disease.
Artichoke & Milk Thistle is a potent herbal supplement formulated to support liver and digestive health.
Artichoke flower extract has three active constituents, cynarin, luteolin, and chlorogenic acid, that serve as a pre- and probiotic to aid in digestion, as an antioxidant to support the hepatic, biliary, and cardiovascular systems, and also as a diuretic for renal support.1 Milk Thistle seed extract contains 80% silymarin. Silymarin also supports the function of the hepatic, biliary, and digestive systems, serves as an antioxidant to optimize immunity, and helps maintain normal glycemic control.2
A potential side effect of this supplement is gastrointestinal upset, so we recommend giving Artichoke & Milk Thistle tablets with a meal. If patients have concurrent medical conditions, including insulin resistance, cholestasis, or renal insufficiency, please contact our veterinary support team for recommendations.
