How Do SAMe and Silybin Help Pets?
One thing that makes dogs and cats unique is that their body anatomy is very similar to that of a human. Pets have the same organs as humans, one example being the liver.
For pets and humans alike, the liver is an important organ that is needed to support daily function. And, unfortunately, pets are also likely to develop diseases such as liver and gallbladder disease.
One way that veterinary experts have been able to find an effective way to support healthy liver function in pets is through administering the combination of S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) and Silybin (Milk Thistle).
S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) is a beneficial antioxidant that supports liver health and detoxifies the liver.
Silybin (Milk Thistle Extract) is a nutrient derived from the herb milk thistle. It has also been found to be useful for maintaining pets’ liver health through repairing and regenerating liver cells.
During the early days, veterinarians only administered S-Adenosyl Methionine as their go-to supplement for treating liver disease or toxicity. Eventually Silybin (Milk Thistle Extract) started to become another popular supplement that yielded positive results as well. Since then veterinarians have recommended pet owners to administer the two ingredients together to achieve the best results.
However, one issue that most owners of pets with liver complications find is that it is still difficult to find the combination of (S-Adenosyl Methionine) SAMe and Silybin (Milk Thistle Extract) in one singular pill. In the past pet owners had to administer the two ingredients separately.
So, what are the available options for those who want to try SAMe and Milk Thistle?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it became increasingly difficult to find supplements that support healthy liver function, especially with the popular product that includes SAMe and Silybin in it, Denamarin, being out of stock at most retailers and veterinary clinics.
However, pet owners do not need to worry about supply shortages for much longer. Another liver supplement brand, SAMeSil Liver Supplement for Dogs and Cats, has recently been gaining popularity with pet owners. SAMeSil contains 100 mg of SAMe and 30 mg of Silybin. It supports healthy liver functions, helps increase glutathione levels, and promotes liver detoxification. SAMeSil is a great alternative to Denamarin.
Ultimately, if your pet has liver issues, then it would be a good idea to consider trying a combination of S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) and Silybin. Luckily, SAMeSil combines both of those ingredients in one pill and can lead to beneficial results for pets with liver complications.
