Immune Booster Powder
The best supplement for an older dog.
This nutritional supplement is a powerful antioxidant and immune system booster that is recommended for dogs at any stage in their life. Especially their senior years. It can be used to treat short term illnesses, diagnosed conditions or to simply maintain your pet's good health.
Immune Booster improves kidney functions; aids in digestion; supports liver functions; builds and supports muscles; aids in bone formation; builds and strengthens the immune system; assists in brain function; helps reduce dental plaque and caries formation (tooth decay); aids in eliminating skin irritations like itching, hot spots, dry skin and thinning coat; helps to protect cells from free radicals and prevent damage to cellular membranes and DNA; it also acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Alpha Amylase:used in carbohydrate digestion; contributes to bacterial clearance
Lipase:is a water-soluble enzyme that breaks down lipids (dietary fats) through hydrolysis and converts them into fatty acids and glycerol. The body needs to absorb these fatty acids to maintain healthy cell membranes. Good levels of Lipase helps to control the elevation of triglycerides (cholesterol) and decrease the chance of developing Type II Diabetes.
Cellulase:is an enzyme used to aid digestion. It breaks down cellulose (non-digestible plant matter) and converts it via hydrolysis into glucose. It can also be used as a pancreatic enzyme replacement, and in treating gastric bezoars (non-digestible mass located in the gastrointestinal system).
Protease:is an enzyme that begins protein catabolism (digestion) by breaking the protein down into its principle components (amino acids) for better absorption. Aids in immune regulation and anti-inflammatory action.
Bromelaine:is an Anti-Inflammatory enzyme.
Lecithin:is an important phospholipid needed by all living cells. It aids in maintaining our overall health and prevention of many conditions and diseases. Lecithin has been proven to decrease cholesterol, promote cardiovascular health, restore damaged livers and improve the brain's memory function. It is used as a neurotransmitter builder (brain food).
DL-Methionine:is an essential amino acid that aids in the body's detoxification process. Methionine cannot be produced by the body, and must be obtained from dietary supplements. It assists in the breakdown of fats, preventing the build-up of fat in the liver and arteries, which obstructs blood flow to the brain, heart and kidneys. This amino acide helps the digestive system, interacts with other substances to detoxify harmful agents, aids in muscle weakness, helps to prevent brittle hair, and is beneficial for allergic chemical sensitivities and osteoporosis.
L-Lysine:is an amino acid that is needed for proper growth and bone development. It helps calcium absorption and maintains nitrogen balance. Has the ability to fight viruses; to aid in the production of antibodies, hormones, enzymes, and in the repair of tissue. It is especially important for those recovering from surgery and sports injuries because it helps to build muscle protein. It lowers high serum triglycerides (cholesterol). Deficiencies result in loss of energy, inability to concentrate, irritability, bloodshot eyes, hair loss, anemia, and reproduction disorders.
L-Cysteine:is a non-essential amino acid that the body converts into Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant. It helps to detoxify harmful toxins and environmental pollutants which are immune suppressors. In addition to protecting the cells, it protects the liver and brain. Supplementation with L-Cysteine is recommended in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. This amino acid also promotes the burning of fat and the building of muscle, and is used by the liver and the lymphocytes to detoxify chemical and germ poisons.
L-Glutathione:has multiple functions. Enhancing the immune system, the body's immune activity, involving unimpeded multiplication of lymphocytes and antibody production, requires maintenance of normal levels of glutathione inside the lymphocytes. Glutathione plays a central protective role against the damaging effects of bacteria, viruses, pollutants and free radicals. Without glutathione, other important antioxidants such as vitamins C and E cannot do their job adequately to protect the body against disease. Another major function of glutathione is in the detoxification of foreign chemical compounds such as carcinogens and harmful metabolites.
L-Glutamine:plays an important role in the maintenance of a healthy digestive tract. It is converted to glutamic acid in the brain, which is essential for cerebral function, and increases the amount of GABA needed. Glutamine helps maintain cell volume and hydration, speeding up wound and burn healing and recovery. It has been shown to be a great anti-catabolic agent, as a contributor to muscle cell volume, and to have immune system enhancing properties.
Manganese:Minute quantities of manganese are needed for protein and for protein and fat metabolism, healthy nerves, and healthy immune system and blood sugar regulation. It is used for energy production and is required for normal bone growth and reproduction. Manganese is essential for iron-deficiencies and is also needed for the utilization of thiamine (B) and vitamin E.
Zinc:is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes and it plays a role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division.
Copper:among its many functions, copper aids in the formation of bone, hemoglobin, and red blood cells, and works in balance with zinc and vitamin C to form elastin. It is involved in the healing process, energy production and is also needed for healthy nerves.
Pyridoxine HCL (Vitamin B6):is involved in more bodily functions than any other single nutrient. It affects both physical and mental health. It is necessary in the production of hydrochloric acid and the absorption of fats and protein. Pyridoxine also aids in maintaining sodium and potassium balance, and promotes red blood cell formation. It is required by the nervous system, and is needed for normal brain function and for the synthesis of RNA and DNA (nucleic acids), which contain the genetic instructions for the reproduction of all cells and for normal cellular growth. It activates many enzymes and aids in B12 absorption, immune system function, and antibody production. Vitamin B6 has a role in cancer immunity and arteriosclerosis. It inhibits the formation of a toxic chemical called homocysteine, which attacks the heart muscle.
Biotin:aids in cell growth, fatty acid production, the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and in the utilization of the B-complex vitamins. Sufficient quantities are needed for healthy coat and skin. Biotin may prevent hair loss, and it also promotes healthy nerve tissue and bone marrow.
Hemp Protein:builds and produces amino acids, the basic building blocks of life. It also has been shown to act as an anti-inflammatory with certain forms of arthritis. It contains 20 known amino acids, including 9 essential amino acids. Hemp protein is the most complete protein source that one food protein can offer, it is comprised of 65% of edestin. It is a good vegetable source for a high protein food.
Available in: 90g / 30 Dose
Directions:Can be used with wet or dry food. Sprinkle recommended dosage directly on your pets food (for dry food spritz with water to ensure it adheres to the food).
Please Note:When introducing anything new into your pets diet it is best to do so slowly to ensure their body adjusts properly.
