Benefits of Milk Thistle in Horses

Milk thistle extract powder is primarily known for its hepatoprotective effects, meaning it can protect liver tissue from damage and support the function of the liver.Because the liver affects so many physiological processes in the horse’s body, boosting the function of this organ can have wide-ranging benefits for your horse’s health.

Below are the top seven benefits of Milk Thistle extract based on research in horses:


Milk thistle helps liver cells make proteins that support cellular regeneration and repair from damage caused by exposure to toxins. This speeds up the replacement of damaged liver cells with new healthy cells – a process known as cellular turnover.

For horses that have liver issues or those at risk of developing liver problems, milk thistle extract might promote normal repair processes to enhance overall liver function.


The active ingredient silibinin found in this herb increases antioxidant protection in healthy horses. Horses given a high dose of silibinin for one week had higher levels of the antioxidant molecule glutathione in their blood. Glutathione forms part of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which combats reactive oxygen species (ROS) to prevent oxidative stress.


By supporting antioxidant status in the liver, milk thistle extract may improve insulin sensitivity which might help horses with equine metabolic syndrome. It may regulate healthy blood sugar levels in these horses when exposed to high-sugar diets. Silymarin could support metabolic health in easy keepers or horses with abnormal lipid deposits like cresty neck.


Milk thistle extract has iron chelating effects which could enhance detoxication processes to protect your horse from the damaging effects of excess heavy metal exposure. These chelating compounds bind iron and help reduce serum ferritin levels and iron stores in tissues. This might be especially beneficial to horses with iron overload. If you suspect your horse has high exposure to iron in their feed or water, you may want to consider supplementing their diet with milk thistle.


Milk thistle extract has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory benefits in animals and humans, particularly when there is an immune challenge like an infection. It lowers pro-inflammatory cytokines which trigger immune responses.

In the short term, pro-inflammatory cytokines are beneficial because they help to clear out an infection, but if they are present at high levels for extended periods of time they can cause tissue damage.

Milk thistle standardized extract can help protect tissues by moderating the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines.


Horses that have recurrent allergies like heaves or seasonal allergies related to insect bites, known as sweet itch, might benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects of this herb. Compounds found in milk thistle extract powder might inhibit immune over-reactions that are common in horses with allergies.


Milk thistle might have benefits for healthy hooves in horses. Activation of neutrophils (immune cells in the blood) is part of the process that causes laminitis in horses. Milk thistle extract compounds decreased activation of neutrophils isolated from horses in laboratory experiments.


The active ingredient in silymarin powder is silymarin, a natural flavonoid lignan compound, which mainly contains silybin, isosilybin, silymarin and silymarin. Construct, in which silibinin has the highest content and the highest hepatoprotective activity. At present, the role of medicinal milk thistle is mainly reflected in:

1. Silymarin powder is sometimes used as a natural remedy for liver problems.

2. Anti-cardiovascular disease effect. Silymarin extract powder can lower cholesterol levels and has cardiovascular benefits.

3. Directly remove reactive oxygen species, resist lipid peroxidation, and maintain the fluidity of cell membranes.

4. Protects against cerebral ischemia injury.
