3. What exactly does Digestive Support do?

Digestive Support is a 100% herbal remedy specially formulated to support digestive health and functioning in pets. Digestive Support is an excellent digestive system tonic and contains three carefully chosen herbs in therapeutic dosage to soothe and support the stomach lining, esophagus, and entire digestive tract.

4. What does Digestive Support contain?

Digestive Support contains the following ingredients:

  • Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is an excellent tonic for the intestines, bladder, kidney and entire digestive tract. This herb is also very effective in soothing the lining of the digestive tract. It has long been used as an herbal remedy for gastro-intestinal health and is well known for its immune-supporting properties. Licorice also exerts a gentle relaxing action on the bowels, helping to support healthy digestion and waste removal and has been investigated for its promotion of liver health. (Arase Y, Ikeda K, Murashima N, et al. "The long term efficacy of glycyrrhizin in chronic hepatitis C patients". Cancer 1997;79(8):1494-1500.)
  • Slippery elm (Ulmus fulva) is known for its bark, which is an excellent digestive herb rich in trace minerals, manganese, iodine, protein and soothing mucilage. It is a very highly respected herb in naturopathic circles and is regularly used by holistic veterinarians to improve the health of the digestive tract. (DeHaan RL. Home remedies for pets. J Am Holistic Veterinary Med Assoc 1994;12:26.)
  • Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) is a well known remedy for digestive health and contains large sugar molecules, called mucilage, which exert a soothing demulcent effect on the mucous membranes of the digestive tract. This makes Marshmallow an ideal natural remedy to support a healthy lining in the digestive tract.
