Effectiveness of the Hepato Support Supplement in Liver Disease

A new clinical study of dogs with elevated liver enzymes has verified the beneficial results seen in practice with Hepato Support from Rx Vitamins. Numerous studies in laboratory animals and humans have repeatedly demonstrated that the antioxidant silymarin (milk thistle) can benefit the liver. Silymarin use in liver diseases (and cancer, and diabetes mellitus, etc.) has been documented in herbal texts since the 16th century. Very few studies however, demonstrate the usefulness of milk thistle in the veterinary patient.

Silymarin has been found to possess the following attributes that are useful in veterinary medicine:

1. Antioxidant; scavenges ROS and protects against glutathione depletion
2. Inhibits hepatocyte membrane lipid peroxidation
3. Antifibrotic
4. Antiinflammatory
5. Increases hepatic protein synthesis
6. Increases rate of hepatocyte regeneration
7. Choleretic; thins the bile, stimulates contraction of gall bladder
8. Protects DNA by reducing lipoxygenase, hydrogen peroxide, and superoxide radicals
9. Suppresses transcription factor (NF)-kappaB
10. Chelates iron which helps to spare glutathione with iron overload
11. Stabilizes mast cells
12. Slows calcium metabolism
13. Decreases activity of promoters of cancer growth.

Hepato Support, contains silymarin complexed with hepatotrophic nutraceuticals to facilitate normalization of liver function. The addition of these nutrients improves the efficacy of the silymarin alone by supporting the metabolic, antioxidant, and detoxification functions of the liver.

Purchase Hepato Support from Rx Vitamins.

NB: It is important for my clients to understand that nutraceutical support of this type only addresses the physiologic piece of the liver diease puzzle. Hepato Support and similar supplements are wonderful for supporting the body while it heals naturally. The healing process itself is best addressed using gentle energetic homeopathic stimulation.–Dr. Jeff

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
