Hepax for horses

Dietetic complementary feed for the support of liver function in the case of chronic liver insuffi­ciency.

Overall health is closely linked to a healthy metabolism and hence also to good liver functionality. The horse’s liver is a metabolic organ as well as a storage organ, a central organ for detoxification processes, and a production site for essential body compounds such as muscle protein. Your veterinarian can detect dysfunction of the liver with a blood test. Hepax forte is a combination of well-established ingredients for a healthy liver.

Ingredients (excerpt)

  • Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum marianum fructus)

    The fruit of the milk thistle has positive, supportive properties for the function of the liver. Free radicals in the liver can be eliminated with the help of milk thistle. Silymarin, extracted from the fruits of milk thistle, can positively influence the biosynthetic capacity of hepatocytes.

  • Artichoke extract (Cynara scolymus folium)

    Artichoke leaves are said to have choleretic, cholicinetic, cholesterol- and lipid-reducing, as well as hepato-stimulating properties. Therefore, artichoke leaves can be utilized to support a dysfunctioning liver and gallbladder.

  • Reishi ground

    The ”mushroom of immortality“ has been used for over 4000 years in traditional chinese phytoscience and has gained worldwide renown as one of the most important medicinal mushrooms. It supports the liver by inhibiting the lipid accumulation and collagen storage. Additionally the triterpene of the reishi has been proven to inhibit the angiotensin-conversions-enzyme (ACE) in humans, which is responsible in producing the blood pressure increasing angiotensin. The oxygenation of blood is facilitated and the organs are provided with more oxygen.

  • Betaine

    Betaine is one of the basic substances for the formation of methionine in the liver. The amino acid methionine is converted by a biochemical reaction to S-adenosylmethionine, which plays a crucial role in detoxification processes of the metabolism. In addition, betaine can contribute to the prevention of fatty liver.

  • Vitamin E

    As a so-called antioxidant, vitamin E has the task of binding free radicals in the liver. These are a very active form of oxygen that can damage tissue and reduce functions in the metabolism. Vitamin E can help to significantly reduce their number and thus protect the tissue and its functions.

  • B-Vitamin

    B vitamins are involved in important metabolic processes in the liver, more precisely in numerous biochemical reactions on the way to S-adenosylmethionine. The liver is also the storage organ for B vitamins - in the case of diseases, the ability to store can be limited.

  • Zinc

    The liver is the primary organ for zinc metabolism. Zinc can improve the regenerative capacity of the organ and help to maintain its functionality.

  • Magnesium

    Magnesium is needed for the synthesis of S-adenosylmethione, which plays an important role in liver detoxification processes.
