Low levels of iron and high levels of the trace minerals copper and zinc are essential for the maintenance of a healthy liver in all horses. Typically mineral analysis of forage through scientific reports show high iron and low levels of both copper and zinc.

Therefore feeding this milk thistle for horses in conjunction with a forage focused horse feed supplement will achieve the best results.

    My horse had elevated liver enzymes and the vet suggested this product, a subsequent blood test showed improvements.

    I have been using this product for a few months on recommendation from my vet. He has elevated liver enzymes and vet doesn’t know why. He is doing better on it as he has EMS and laminitic. I will hope his enzymes are better on next blood test

    Another great product that we use 4wks on, 6wks off all year. His previously poor hooves are stronger and he seems so much healthier and content since being on it. There are many amazing benefits to milk thistle. It’s the only supplement my horse has (alongside the FP Hoof and Skin winter balancer, hay nuts and Speedibeet) and having seen the positive changes in him since starting it in the summer, I wouldn’t now be without it. Thank you Forage Plus 🙂

    I bought this for my horse who is healing from laminitis as I read it can help with liver detox as he gets anti-inflammatories.
    He is always looking forward for his milk thistle and licks the bowl clean.
