LiveAid® is a powerful Indian herbal tonic that supports liver function in horses. It also helps maintain efficient digesion.
The liver is constantly under threat of attack from issues such as parasites, bacterial infections, prolonged use of antibiotics and other conventional drugs, and toxins which may creep in through contaminants in feeds or the environment. LiveAid® supports liver function to optimum levels and increases bile secretion so that the digestive system works efficiently.
LiveAid® helps your horse successfully absorb all the nutritional goodness from its diet and any other supplements it is taking. By improving how the horse's body metabolises its food, LiveAid® can help your horse gain weight and condition and support its general health.
Horses that have had access to ragwort - or where it is suspected - should have their liver function supported due to the harmful effects of this poisonous plant, and LiveAid® is ideal in these cases. LiveAid® is also suitable for healthy maintenance of the laminae, or for horses and ponies known to be prone to needing such support.
Your horse may benefit from the supportive effects of LiveAid® if you notice your horse has: an inability to gain condition despite correct feeding and regular worming, poor coat quality, listlessness and general failure to thrive and sparkle. In many cases, changes can be seen within a few days of starting to give LiveAid®. You may notice the colour of your horse's coat start to change as his digestion begins to work more efficiently.

Optimum health and performance for all horses and ponies can be helped by the powerful yet natural liver tonic, LiveAid®.
LiveAid® brings together powerful herbal extracts - without using chemicals in the manufacturing process - and can be mixed with a horses feed making it easy to administer and palatable to the horse.
Top quality control processes, and stringent monitoring of the ingredients and the manufacturing method, guarantees consistency and ensures that LiveAid® is safe as well as effective.
Tests indicate that LiveAid® can also help improve pancreatic and duodenal enzyme production alongside other digestion benefits. Because of the effect it has on bile secretion, LiveAid® also facilitates effective absorption of fats and fat-soluble nutrients as well as carbohydrates.
The liver is a vital organ responsible for some 2,000 metabolic functions. Its most critical role is the safe handling of waste including toxins produced either by the body or the environment in which the horse lives and works.
Chemicals that the horse may ingest either through things it eats, drugs it is prescribed or pollution in the environment, plus any viruses and bacteria, all have to be dealt with by the liver which also has a major role to play in the immune system. The liver constantly monitors organisms and chemicals and can neutralise them and kick-start the process of expelling them safely from the body.
The liver can convert some toxins into water-soluble products that are passed into the blood stream and then out of the body as urine via the kidneys. Other products are turned into fat-soluble products which are then excreted after bile is produced by the liver.
Bile is a complicated combination of products including very important emulsifier compounds, or bile salts, which are an essential part of the effective absorption of carbohydrates, fats and fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E and K.
Horses do not have gall bladders, so they are unable to store bile. This means that bile has to be constantly produced so that the delicate digestive system works as it should and nutrients including vitamins and minerals are efficiently absorbed.
The liver is also a vital processing plant involved in the processes around digestion. This important organ - which relative to the size of the horse is proportionately smaller than in most other animals - can take out of circulation some products of digestion and process them to form molecules of various kinds needed for healthy growth and repair.
The horse lives longer than many other animals so that means that there is the increased likelihood of liver function becoming compromised over time. A horses liver is under attack all the time from potentially damaging chemicals in the environment as well as chemicals found in medical treatments such as anti-inflammatories, wormers and antibiotics.
LiveAid® supports liver tissues that have been damaged by diseases, infections or toxins.
Indications that a horses liver is not working at full capacity may appear gradually as the livers ability to perform reduces. In some cases, the symptoms may appear suddenly and have a big negative impact on the horses health and wellbeing.
Symptoms that may indicate liver problems include a marked deterioration in coat quality - or a reluctance of the coat to shed - poor digestive performance, sloppy droppings, or a general lack of energy and enjoyment of life.
