Vetri-Cardio for dogs is formulated with ingredients that work synergistically to support the cardiovascular system.
- Carnitine transports fatty acids through the blood to the mitochondria where it's converted to ATP, an energy molecule.
- Taurine is an amino acid that supports a regular heartbeat and has antioxidant properties to reduce oxidative stress.
- Arginine is an amino acid that helps to increase coronary blood flow.
- Coenzyme Q10 helps to increase cellular energy with the heart through the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
- Hawthorne is an herb that reduces oxidative stress and supports healthy coronary blood flow and oxygen flow.
L-Carnitine HCI - 250 mg
L-Carnitine is an amino acid-like cofactor that has a positive effect on the heart muscles. It transports fatty acids through the blood to the mitochondria where it's converted to ATP, an energy molecule required for normal cellular energy metabolism. L-Carnitine supports heart rate, lipid patterns, proper use of electrolytes and exercise tolerance.
L-Taurine - 250 mg
Taurine is an amino acid found in high concentration in heart tissue. It helps support the nervous system and muscles, and plays an important role in keeping the brain and heart healthy. Taurine supports a regular heartbeat (by helping to mobilize potassium and magnesium into the cell membranes), minimizes the loss of potassium, supports proper use of electrolytes and benefits the immune system. Taurine also offers antioxidant protection thus helping to reduce oxidative stress and damage.
Arginine - 150 mg
Arginine is an amino acid produced by the body. It supports vasodilation, coronary endothelial function and helps to increase coronary blood flow. Arginine also supports kidney function, fluid elimination, exercise tolerance and quality of life.
Hawthorne (Crataegus oxycantha) Berry Extract - 100 mg
Hawthorne is an herb that has been used as a cardiac support ingredient since the first century A.D. Recent research shows that it exerts a wide range of positive actions on heart function, due primarily to its flavonoid content, particularly the oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). OPC's are powerful antioxidants that work with vitamin C to support capillary stability. Hawthorne has been shown to reduce oxidative stress, support healthy coronary blood flow and support oxygen flow and utilization by the heart.
Magnesium (Mg Oxide) - 60 mg
Magnesium is a mineral that supports proper functioning of the cardiac muscle. It helps maintain the integrity of blood vessels and normal blood viscosity. Magnesium works synergistically with potassium to support electrical activity of the heart and a strong normal heartbeat.
N,N-Dimethylglycine (DMG) HCl - 50 mg
DMG is an important amino acid that has been shown to support the cardiovascular and immune systems. It supports circulation, healthy blood pressure, detoxification and physical performance in stressed animals. DMG has demonstrated a positive effect on stamina and endurance due to its ability to reduce lactic acid build-up.
Berberine (Hydrastis Canadensis) HCI - 50 mg
Berberine is a flavonoid found in herbs such as barberry and is frequently used in Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicine. It has been shown to support cardiac function by beneficially affecting blood pressure, blood viscosity and the rhythm of the heart beat.
Coenzyme Q10 - 30 mg
Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluable substance found in the inner mitochondrial membrane where it acts as a membrane stabilizer and a free radical scavenger. It helps to increase cellular energy within the heart via production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), support heart muscle strength and heart tissue by supporting healthy circulation.
Folic Acid - 0.9 mg
Folic Acid isa B vitamin required for the formation of red blood cells and it helps support capillary blood flow
Potassium (K Citrate) - 0.1 mg
Potassium works synergistically with magnesium to support electrolyte blance. Electrolyte balance is important for heart rhythm and blood pressure.
