Your pet can come into contact with potentially harmful environmental toxins and chemicals both inside and outside the home and sometimes the build-up of toxins simply becomes too great for your pet's body to handle. If toxins and waste can't be removed through normal detoxification processes, several problems can arise, including:

  • Your pet's body attempts to remove the excess toxins through his skin, resulting in itchy, scaly, and dry skin.
  • Your pet's body tries to shed toxins and waste through mucous membranes, leading to eye discharge, teary eyes, or a runny nose.
  • Your pet's body stores the overload of toxins to be handled later.

Dr Mercola Healthy Pets Liver and Kidney Support will help to handle the toxins and chemicals that enter your pets body and to support your pet's normal detoxification processes to better maintain optimal health.

This product has been carefully formulated, based by Dr Karen Becker, based on her extensive research and experience, bringing together 14 valuable nutrients that support your pet's kidney and liver health including milk thistle for immune support and dandelion greens to promote liver and gallbladder health.

You can use Liver & Kidney Support daily, monthly, quarterly, or yearly, depending upon your pet's exposure and overall vitality. This may depend if your pet spends time outdoors and may be exposed to toxins or if your pet is relatively healthy and not exposed to a great deal of toxins indoors or out (a "green" home and lawn).

What are the ingredients in Liver and Kidney Support?

Glutathione: helps support your pet's liver in its removal of unwanted compounds. A peptide molecule made up of 3 amino acids, it also includes glycine. Glycine has been included along with glutathionein Liver & Kidney Support to help your pet's body make even more glutathione. It's important for other mechanisms, too 

Milk Thistle: Milk Thistle is often associated with liver health. It is valuable because it’s main constituent of milk thistle seed extract is silymarin, a flavonoid compound. Milk thistle has therefore been included because it can help protect the liver against toxins, support immune function, promote free radical scavenging and help preserve glutathione. Research shows that milk thistle promotes many positive effects throughout an animal's entire body, and not just the liver. And moderate amounts of milk thistle have been found to be safe for animals.*

 *Important note: If your pet is on prescription medications or receiving medical therapy, please ask your vet if Liver & Kidney Support is appropriate for your pet before using.

Dandelion Leaf: Did you know that the leaves of the dandelion, especially, when grown organically without pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilisers, offer a multitude of benefits? Dandelion leaf extract has been added for its superior support. Rich in nutrients, dandelion contains "bitters" which provide the herb's main benefits. Dandelion gently stimulates and supports liver and gallbladder health. And it's especially helpful for kidney health, too.

Japanese Knotweed: Certain plants produce resveratrol as part of their defense system against environmental stressors. Resveratrol is found in many plants, including pomegranates, raspberries, and Japanese knotweed. Japanese Knotweed has been included because it helps the liver "clean house" by flushing away unwanted fats, promoting optimal function.

Taurine: taurine is especially essential for cats, is an important amino acid for liver and gallbladder support. It is essential for optimal blood flow, cardiovascular health, and the production of bile in both cats and dogs. Pets with less-than-optimal levels of taurine may be at greater risk of adverse effects from toxins. Although a minimal level of taurine is included in most commercial pet foods, taurine is easily depleted in stressed pets.

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) helps support a process known as methylation. Pets' bodies are equipped with powerful stress hormones. Adrenaline and noradrenaline help your pet through a crisis. However, chronic exposure to these hormones can be unhealthy. The faster your pet can get rid of these hormones once they are no longer needed, the better. The process of getting rid of these hormones is called methylation. Phosphatidylcholine is required for this process of breaking down and eliminating these hormones from your pet's body.

Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), another potent free radical fighter, is an enzyme found in all living cells. As your pet ages, the number of free radicals he encounters can challenge his body's natural levels of free radical-quenching SOD. Supplementing with SOD may help your pet quench the free radicals his body encounters.

NAC is a cellular antioxidant that boosts your pet's tissue glutathione levels. NAC protects against oxidative stress and is a potent free radical scavenger.

Green Tea leaf extract's catechins help protect cellular DNA, according to recent research. For the well-being of your pet, we use only decaffeinated green tea leaf extract for this formula.

Schisandra fruit supports liver function by stimulating liver enzymes.

Curcumin is what gives turmeric its yellow colour. This potent antioxidant supports your pet's liver and kidney health.

Chlorella supports your pet's normal detoxification processes.

Silica supports the repair process and a healthy bowel.

 

Product Description

    Details

    Age, stress, injury, and a host of other contributors can result in less-than-optimal detoxification for your pet. Sometimes the build-up of toxins simply becomes too great for your pet's body to handle. If toxins and waste can't be removed through normal detoxification processes, several problems can arise, including:

    • Your pet's body attempts to remove the excess toxins through his skin, resulting in itchy, scaly, and dry skin.
    • Your pet's body tries to shed toxins and waste through mucous membranes, leading to eye discharge, teary eyes, or a runny nose.
    • Your pet's body stores the overload of toxins to be handled later.

     Toxins and unwanted waste that isn't removed can remain and build up in your pet's body and can potentially lead to less-than-optimal health.

    The nutrients that assist the detoxification process can become depleted when your pet is under stress, too, exposing her body to even more potential damage from environmental factors.

    There are natural ways to support your pet's normal detoxification processes and promote optimal health and these are discussed below.

    How can you support your pet’s detoxification Processes?

    1. Feed your dog or cat a healthy diet. It's certainly one of the simplest things you can do to help support your pet's normal detoxification processes. Check the label of the food you're feeding. Does it contain chemical additives and preservatives? How about artificial colours and flavours? Treats matter too, as they are a part of your dog's or cat's daily intake. Switch to natural, preferably all-meat treats.

    Looking at what our cats and dogs eat in the wild gives us an important clue as to which types of foods your pet's body handles best. Cats and dogs aren't well equipped to digest carbohydrates. So make sure you feed your pet food that's species-appropriate. Fresh, filtered water is important, too.

    2. Exercise. Daily exercise assists your pet's normal detoxification processes in several ways:

    • Stimulates blood to help remove toxins and waste from cells, tissues, and organs
    • Helps move lymph fluid to carry toxins to the liver and kidneys where they can be safely eliminated from the body.
    • Promotes regular bowel movements to move toxins and waste through the digestive tract in a timely manner to help prevent re-absorption.

    Regular exercise is essential for not only the normal detoxification process, but also for help in maintaining a healthy weight for your pet, and total body and mind wellness.
