Why a liver health supplement?

The liver participates in a lot of activities within the body. It helps the digestion of food through production of bile and helps change digested foods into substances used by the body for energy and growth. The liver stores vitamins and minerals and works with sugar (carbohydrates, glucose) fats and proteins. The liver also helps to filter the blood.

When liver function is compromised, the exact reason can often be difficult to determine. Supporting the liver, regardless of the reason, is essential to keep it working properly.

How does Marin Plus work?

Marin Plus provides support for the liver with Silybin (an extract from the milk thistle plant), vitamin E, zinc, medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, and curcumin (an extract from turmeric).

Curcumin

  • Liver-protective
  • Supports healthy inflammatory response
  • Supports oxidative balance

Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) Oil

  • Energy source for metabolic reactions in the liver
  • Helps reduce fat deposits in the liver

Each is given as one oral dose equivalent to 16 mg/kg body weight of silybin.

*Silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex

The chart to the left illustrates that the Silybin in Marin Plus (which is in a phosphatidylcholine complex) has increased absorption in dogs, reaching levels up to 4 times more than that seen with 80% standardized milk thistle extracts (silymarin).


The NMXCC95™ curcumin extract in Marin Plus also has enhanced absorption. As seen in the chart to the left, NMXCC95™ extract was shown to have 7x higher overall absorption and 3x higher maximal levels in the bloodstream than standard curcumin extract.


Using Marin Plus

Marin Plus is available in a tasty soft chew which provides a simple option for dogs requiring liver support. Marin Plus, Denosyl, and Denamarin support the liver through differing actions and may be used individually or in combination depending on your pet’s needs.

Ultimately, your veterinarian can advise you on the best way to support your pet’s liver.
