Due to changes in feeding conditions, liver problems have become among the most common diseases in our horses. The reasons are manifold: too much grain, too much protein, bad or mouldy food. Also a massive worm infestation, medicines and bacterial attack can cause liver diseases.
The liver is a storage organ for many nutrients such as vitamins and trace elements, is the central organ for detoxification processes and at the same time is the site for production of essential body building blocks (for example muscle protein). A healthy liver is a decisive factor in the performance and vitality of our horses.
Thus, the liver also takes over a large part in the regulation of blood sugar levels and keeps these constant regardless of the food intake. This gives an idea of the importance of the liver in horses with Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) and laminitis.
A healthy liver is essential for a healthy metabolism and the path to damaging this vital organ is generally very slow and insidious. Only very late are problems with the liver visible. First signs are often performance deficits, muscle loss, weight loss, skin problems and bad hooves.
E VET heparOforte provides the body with the nutrients that support liver function. The renewal of liver cells is supported by special substances from the milk thistle, and facilitates the processing of fats in the liver via bitter substances contained in the artichoke. The MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) content makes the cell membranes more permeable, so that important active ingredients and nutrients can be better absorbed.
In particular, the secondary plant substances from herbs such as milk thistle, artichoke or dandelion stimulate the liver and protect the liver cells. The bile flow is obtained and stimulated by so-called bitter substances. In particular, milk thistle (with a high content of silymarin) and artichoke are known as bitter-rich "liver herbs".
The interaction of these phytonutrients in combination with other selected herbs thus naturally support the liver function and help to regenerate damaged liver cells.
In addition, cold-pressed milk thistle oil has a balancing effect on metabolism, skin and coat due to its high content of essential fatty acids. The added essential amino acids lysine and methionine are crucial for the synthesis of carnitine and choline, which are important nutrients for an intact liver metabolism.
