Active Ingredients Per Capsule:
Vitamin C - 175 mg.
Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen, promotes the healing of wounds and fractures, and strengthens blood vessels. It also enhances T-cell production which helps to fight off viral and bacterial infections and some allergies. Vitamin C is especially beneficial to animals with any type of chronic disease, infection allergy or dermatitis and may reduce the risk of certain cancers, heart disease and cataracts.
Dimethlglycine (DMG) - 70 mg.
L-Glutamine - 70 mg.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) - 70 mg.
NAC is a precursor to glutathione, an important antioxidant. Glutathione slows down the aging process, helps reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, detoxifies the liver and supports the cardiovascular system.
Echinacea angustifolia (root) - 50 mg.
Echinacea has been used extensively to stimulate the immune system to help fight viral and bacterial infections. It has also been used to heal wounds and skin problems and reduce inflammation.
Reishi Mushroom - 50 mg.
Reishi mushrooms work as an anti-inflammatory and antihistamine to relieve respiratory ailments and allergy symptoms. They have been found to enhance immune modulators, which are important for fighting viral and bacterial infections and they also inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Vitamin E - 30 mg. (35 I.U.)
Vitamin E supplies oxygen to the blood, strengthens capillary walls and protects red blood cells. It brings nourishment to cells and helps to maintain healthy membrane tissue. Vitamin E is especially beneficial to aging animals and animals with heart disease, cancer and atopic dermatitis.
Astragalus membranaceus - 25 mg.
Astragalus root has been used for thousands of years in China to strengthen the immune system. More recently, it has been found to suppress tumor growth and restore immune function compromised by tumor growth in cancer patients.
Thymus (Bovine) - 25 mg.
The thymus is responsible for many immune system functions , including the product of T lymphocytes which help to protect against bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses, cancer, allergies, dermatitis and immune disorders.
Coenzyme Q-10…20 mg.
CoQ-10 is a nutrient present in every cell of the body. As animals get older, the body's ability to make CoQ-10 diminishes so it is especially important to supplement this nutrient in senior pets. Co-Q10 strengthens the immune system, supports and protects the cardiovascular system and helps keep gums healthy. Helps to fight gingivitis, stomatitis and other oral diseases.
Pyridoxal 5’ Phosphate (Vitamin B6) - 7 mg.
Vitamin A Palmitate - 5.6 mg. (1400 I.U.)
Vitamin A plays an important role in bone growth, tooth development, and reproduction. The skin, eyes and mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, throat and lungs depend on Vitamin A to remain moist.
Zinc (Picolinate)…3.5 mg.
Zinc is needed for enzyme reactions; cell replication, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, skin function and wound healing.A deficiency of zinc can lead to increased susceptibility to infection.
Mixed Carotenes (Vitamin A) - 840 mcg (1400 I.U.)
Lycopene, the carotenoid that gives tomatoes their red color, is particularly effective at protecting cells and tissues from the damaging effects of oxidation. Lutein and zeaxanthin provide protection in the macular region of the eye. Mixed carotenoids may be beneficial to animals with cancer, cataracts, respiratory problems and allergies.
Copper (Picolinate) - 350 mcg.
Copper assists in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells by aiding iron absorption. Copper helps form the cover which surrounds nerve fiber, and it works in conjunction with vitamin C to form elastin, the chief component of elastic muscle fibers throughout the body.
Folic Acid - 200 mcg.
Manganese (Picolinate)…175 mcg.
Selenium (Selenomethionine) - 7 mcg.
Selenium protects cell membranes and slows down the aging and hardening of tissues due to oxidation. It is beneficial to animals suffering from cancer (and as a cancer preventative). Too much selenium can be toxic – always follow recommended dosage.
