Maintaining liver function in dogs and cats

What is it? What is it for?

Prolivet® is a food supplement for dogs and cats that contributes towards maintaining liver function.

 

Description

Silybin is the most abundant and active component of silymarin, a fruit extract from milk thistle (Silybum marianum). Silybin neutralizes free radicals, thus protecting the liver cells against oxidative damage. Silybin inhibits the adhesion of toxins, as well as the production of leukotrienes, which are involved in the inflammatory response. As for phosphatidylcholine, it is the main precursor/metabolite of choline, and the main constituent of lipoproteins in the bloodstream and cell membranes. It is also the main component of bile, and plays a fundamental role in mitochondrial energy transformation and in the elimination of residues from cellular metabolism.
