How myrrh can be useful to pets:
Invigorates Blood: Myrrh is able to help lower blood pressure and improve blood circulation as well. An interesting study in China even showed that, along with Frankincense, Myrrh can have effects on cancer in humans. Together, these two powerful ingredients may be able to help prevent cancer cells from spreading, especially in certain types of cancer. These types of benefits can be conferred to pets as well, helping to keep your furry friend healthy.
Dispels Blood Stasis: Blood stasis is another word for stagnant blood, often used in Chinese Medicine. With blood stasis, it means your blood isn’t flowing properly. This can be caused by a variety of different types of trauma, such as sprains, bruises, and more. For pets — especially those who live an extremely active lifestyle — these types of injuries can be common and can be very disruptive to their way of life. Myrrh can help manage their discomfort, support healing, and get them back to doing the activities they love.
Alleviates Pain and Reduces Swelling: Whether your pup has a bump or bruise, the anti-inflammatory properties of Myrrh can help your pet feel better without medication that could make them feel sick. It can block your pet’s body from producing the types of inflammation that lead to swelling and pain.
Helps Regenerate Tissue and Promotes Healing: Myrrh can be used for its skin and tissue regenerative properties. A study in Saudi Arabia showed that it was successful in promoting the regeneration of tissue when applied to wounds in a controlled manner. If your pet gets a wound, Myrrh may help their skin regenerate more quickly, and its antimicrobial properties may also help prevent infection at the same time.
Myrrh is an important ingredient with a variety of powerful uses for your favorite four-legged friend. Several Gou Gou Pets products include Myrrh Resin (Mo Yao), such as the following:
