B ComplexVET

B ComplexVET - Thorne Veterinary / Anxiety, Stress and Sleep Support

Comprehensive B complex support

  • unlike many B-vitamin products, B ComplexVET contains the active forms for enhanced bioavailability
  • contains an optimal balance of essential B vitamins
  • yeast free

Product Information

B ComplexVET consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), folate, and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body – from cellular energy production to healthy red-blood-cell formation and healthy neurological function. Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body; consequently, they must be supplemented in an animal health product in order to maintain optimal health.

Supplementing with active B vitamins is extremely important to all animals, especially animals that may not be able to convert non-active vitamins to their active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, poor diet, or age. Providing these active cofactors enhances bioavailability, ensuring the animal gets a full complement of B vitamins. Animals that have been ill or that have a poor appetite may need extra supplementation.

B ComplexVET contains the entire B complex, including the activated forms of vitamin B2 (riboflavin 5'-phosphate), vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5'-phosphate), folic acid (folinic acid and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate), and vitamin B12 (adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin), as well as 80 mg of choline citrate. Although choline is often grouped with the B vitamin family, it is not officially a B vitamin.

Bio-Cardio - Thorne Veterinary / Cardiovascular Support

small animal cardiac support

  • supports cardiac muscle function
  • promotes oxygen utilization
  • enhances physical stamina
  • contains CoQ10, a potent antioxidant necessary for every cell

Product Information

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, one in 10 dogs suffers from poor cardiovascular health. Although some dogs have a genetic predisposition to cardiovascular problems, other factors such as nutritional deficiencies and obesity can certainly contribute.

A number of animal health products, including coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), vitamin E, L-carnitine, taurine, potassium, and magnesium have generated positive research results in helping to maintain a healthy heart. In addition, various botanical substances can provide cardiac support.

Bio-Cardio for small animals combines the unique antioxidant and cardio-protective qualities of CoQ10 with other cardio-protective ingredients and botanicals. Research on CoQ10 in animals demonstrates that it promotes the heart's oxygen utilization and helps maintain a healthy myocardium.

Certain amino acids are essential to cardiac function. For example, supplementation with taurine to support healthy cardiac function in cats is well established, because unlike humans and dogs, cats are unable to synthesize taurine. Thus, in the feline population, taurine is considered an essential amino acid. L-carnitine is essential for cellular energy production in the mitochondria and supports muscle metabolism, including the heart muscle. Supplementation with L-carnitine has been shown to improve appetite and exercise tolerance in dogs. Dimethylglycine enhances oxygen usage and also improves muscle metabolism.

Maintaining a healthy level of antioxidants to balance oxidative stress is essential for all tissues of the body, including the heart. Vitamin E provides essential antioxidant activity in fat-soluble tissues; selenium is a necessary cofactor for glutathione peroxidase.

Magnesium and potassium are essential minerals for healthy cardiac contractility and for maintaining a healthy heart rhythm; magnesium is essential for regulating vascular smooth muscle tone. Deficiencies of these two minerals often occur concurrently; therefore, it is essential to replete both of them.

Botanicals in Bio-Cardio include Crataegus laevigata (hawthorn extract), Tribulus terrestris extract, and Terminalia arjuna (arjuna extract), all of which contribute to healthy heart muscle functioning. Eleutherococcus senticosus (eleuthero root extract), an adaptogen, is added to support physical stamina.

Active Ingredients

Active Ingredients Per Capsule:
L-Carnitine (L-Carnitine L-Tartrate) 140 mg.
Taurine 140 mg.
Desiccated Heart (Bovine) 70 mg.
Hawthorn extract (flowering tops) (Crataegus laevigata) 70 mg.

Omega PlusVET - Product Image
Omega PlusVET

Omega PlusVET

Balanced amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids – in fish gelatin gelcaps

  • promotes healthy heart and brain function
  • 300 mg EPA, 200 mg DHA per gelcap
  • 40 mg omega-6 GLA per gelcap
  • molecular distillation removes heavy metals and other potential contaminants

Product Information

Omega PlusVET contains an omega-3/omega-6 ratio designed to provide a healthful balance of these important essential fatty acids (EFAs). As with the significant animal health benefits of the omega-3 fatty acids, the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) offers similar benefits. Omega PlusVET utilizes borage oil, a rich source of GLA (higher than evening primrose oil), in a predominantly fish oil blend for optimal fatty acid ratios.

The formation of these important EFAs in the body by precursor dietary fatty acids is hindered by numerous factors including aging, nutrient deficiencies, pet foods containing trans-fatty acids or hydrogenated oils, and living in a household with heavy smokers. Thus, supplementation may be essential.

Studies using a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA demonstrate positive benefits for bone and joint health as well as for cardiovascular and respiratory health.

In addition to the known benefits of fish oil (see SuperEPA?VET), GLA has been found to provide a wide variety of health-related benefits, including support of skin and other connective tissue, female reproductive health, eye health, and cognitive health.

As always, Thorne Vet provides the highest quality, purest oils available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

Active Ingredients

Active Ingredients per Gelcap:
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) (from Fish Oil) 300 mg.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) (from Fish Oil) 200 mg.
GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) (from Borage Oil) 40 mg.
Inactive Ingredients: Gelatin (from tilapia) and Glycerin (vegetable source) gelcap, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E).

For use in cats, dogs, and horses only.

Recommended for supporting dermatological, cognitive, and cardiovascular function.

Arthroplex - Product Image
Arthroplex

Arthroplex - Thorne Veterinary / Musculoskeletal Support

Joint support for small animals

  • helps relieve occasional soreness and stiffness
  • supports healthy cartilage
  • provides glucosamine with proven joint support
  • helps maintain healthy joint mobility

Product Information

Arthroplex helps maintain healthy joint function by combining the proven joint protective activity of glucosamine sulfate with supportive ingredients and botanicals. Although there are many products available to support joint health, it is extremely important to have pure ingredients that are readily absorbed in the older patient whose intestinal function may be limited. The unique combination of top quality ingredients in this formula provides a broad spectrum of activity.

In addition to glucosamine sulfate, Arthroplex contains the botanical Boswellia. Boswellia appears to inhibit the activity of lipoxygenase enzymes, thus promoting the animal's normal inflammatory response. A recent in vivo study examined Boswellia extract for its effect on glycosaminoglycan metabolism. Glycosaminoglycans form an important component of the body's connective tissues. Boswellia significantly reduced the degradation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) compared to controls.

Arthroplex also contains bromelain – a protein-digesting enzyme complex from pineapple. Bromelain stimulates fibrinolytic activity and inhibits thromboxane A2 that positively affects pro-inflammatory cytokines and prostaglandins. Evidence indicates that bromelain's action is in part a result of inhibiting the generation of bradykinin via depletion of the plasma kallikrein system.

Green-lipped mussels, or Perna mussels, are rich in all the major classes of GAGs, including chondroitin-4- and -6-sulfates, as well as amino acids, polypeptides, and nucleic acids (RNA and DNA). Green-lipped mussels also contain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids extracts that may inhibit cytokine activity to help maintain normal inflammatory processes.

DL-Phenylalanine is a component of the catecholamine neurotransmitter cascade, leading to increased levels of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine, which can in turn increase levels of endorphins and enkephalins.

Active Ingredients

Active Ingredients Per Capsule:
Glucosamine Sulfate (as Glucosamine Sulfate Potassium Chloride complex) 225 mg.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) 100 mg.
Green-Lipped Mussels 90 mg.
DL-Phenylalanine 75 mg.
Indian Frankincense extract (gum) (Boswellia serrata) 35 mg.
Bromelain (undiluted) 35 mg.
Inactive Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, Natural Bacon Flavoring, Silicon Dioxide.

Super EPAVET - Product Image
Super EPAVET

Thorne Veterinary: Cardiovascular Support

Super EPAVET, 90 Fish Gelatin Gelcaps

Omega-3 fatty acids with 425 mg EPA and 270 mg DHA per gelcap

  • essential for maintaining healthy heart and brain function
  • molecular distillation removes heavy metals and other potential contaminants
  • enhances mood and memory
  • supports healthy neurological development
  • supports healthy skin and joint function

Product Information

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because dogs and cats must get them from food or supplementation; i.e., these fatty acids cannot be made from other substances in the body. Cats, in particular, do not produce the desaturase enzymes required to convert alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); thus, omega-3 supplementation from a fish source (EPA and DHA) rather than a plant source (ALA) is critical.

EPA and DHA are beneficial for the cardiovascular system. They support good circulation by maintaining healthy blood vessels, optimizing vascular endothelial function, and maintaining already healthy blood lipid levels.

The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are also supportive of healthy brain function. EPA and DHA are not just important during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development, they are important throughout life. In particular, cognitive functioning in the aging animal can be supported by DHA and EPA.

Thorne Vet?s fish oil products have been among the best-sellers for over two decades because of their exceptional purity and quality. Recent concentration technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules. As always, Thorne Vet provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

Another innovation from Thorne Vet – Super EPA VET is in a fish-derived gelatin capsule.

Active Ingredients

Active Ingredients per Gelcap:
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) (from Fish Oil) 425 mg.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) (from Fish Oil) 270 mg.
Inactive Ingredients: Gelatin (from tilapia) and Glycerin (vegetable source) gelcap, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E).

Bacillus CoagulansVET - Product Image
Bacillus CoagulansVET

Bacillus CoagulansVET - Veterinary Gastrointestinal Support

A unique, stable probiotic organism that promotes gastrointestinal health

  • supports healthy gut flora
  • no refrigeration or special handling required
  • stable, healthy bacteria survive stomach acidity

Product Information

The canine and feline intestinal tract contains trillions of bacteria that, in a healthy animal, coexist in a beneficial, symbiotic relationship. They help digest food, produce vitamins, regulate metabolism, and control normal immune response. Providing animals with supplemental probiotic bacteria promotes a healthy intestinal environment by producing lactic acid and secreting fatty acids helpful to the growth of other beneficial microorganisms. Bacillus coagulans is a lactic acid-producing bacteria that represents a breakthrough in probiotic supplementation. This beneficial bacteria is dormant until ingestion, when it reverts to a growing bacteria in the intestines. Because of this it resists being destroyed by stomach acid; in contrast, many probiotics lose most or all of their potency before use and do not survive the journey through the stomach.

Now containing 2 billion CFU's per capsule!

Active Ingredients

Active Ingredients Per Capsule:
Bacillus coagulans* 133 mg.

*Lactobacillus sporogenes (alternate nomenclature)
Contains a minimum of 2 billion CFU's per capsule.
Inactive Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Silicon Dioxide.

Canine Geriatric Basics - Product Image
Canine Geriatric Basics

Canine Geriatric Basics

Promotes a good quality of life in older dogs

  • supports healthy aging including vision and musculoskeletal support
  • potent antioxidant support
  • maintains healthy cognitive function
  • promotes cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health
  • adaptogenic herbs to promote resistance to stress

Product Information

Older dogs have increased requirements for specific substances not provided by a balanced diet. As aging progresses, a greater number of animal health problems can arise whose duration and severity may be mitigated through targeted supplementation of health-promoting vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and plant extracts. Canine Geriatric Basics is formulated to provide this additional supplementation.

It is formulated with specific amino acids to help geriatric patients by enhancing the production of neurotransmitters. L-tyrosine produces the catecholamines dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. DL-Phenylalanine has been shown to block enkephalinase, thereby increasing the levels of endorphins and enkephalins in the central nervous system.

Canine Geriatric Basics contains flavonoids, coenzyme Q10, and other potent antioxidants for slowing oxidative damage to the aging canine body. The canine aging process may also adversely affect the brain, resulting in decreased production of neurotransmitters, decreased synaptic density, and degeneration of neuronal membrane integrity. Phosphatidylserine positively affects neuronal membranes through support of lipid membrane components and by improving the amount and function of acetylcholine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. Acetyl-L-carnitine increases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

Bilberry has been added for its beneficial effects on vision. Because aging animals are more susceptible to the detrimental effects of stress, the adrenal adaptogenic herbs Eleutherococcus and ashwagandha have been added to help modulate these effects.

Note: Geriatric patients may have a variety of problems specific to the individual, for which products such as Hepagen-C, Arthroplex, Gastriplex, or MemoractivVET may be indicated. In most cases, Canine Geriatric Basics can be combined with these products for maximum beneficial effect.

CurcuVET-SA150 - Product Image
CurcuVET-SA150

CurcuVET-SA150 - Veterinary Gastrointestinal Support, by Thorne Veterinary

Curcumin complexed with phosphatidylcholine for superior bioavailability

  • for maintenance of the animal's normal inflammatory response
  • provides potent antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity
  • significantly increased bioavailability from the phytosome preparation

Product Information

CurcuVET® is a unique, patented curcumin product available exclusively from Thorne Vet. For centuries people throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry) and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits including for joint health, hepatic support, gastrointestinal health, and cardiovascular function – by helping to maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response.

CurcuVET is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientists at Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to a phospholipid, in this case phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of cell membranes. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. By attaching a curcumin molecule to a PC molecule, the PC ushers the curcumin across the cell membrane for superior absorption.

Studies demonstrate CurcuVET supports a healthy inflammatory response in small animals and horses. A recent European study analyzed the bioactivity of CurcuVET compared to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and found their bioactivity was similar. The study's sponsors, who were studying canine arthritis, found CurcuVET was effective in down-regulating the pro-inflammatory substances, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB).

A similar equine study on the effect of CurcuVET on cytokine gene expression found significant down-regulation of interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-1RN in mares and inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2, TNF-α, and IL-1RN and increase in IL-6 in foals.

Similar results were achieved in an eight-month human trial of Meriva. Enhanced joint health was reflected in improvements in both clinical and biochemical end points.

A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated the superior bioavailability of curcumin phytosome (as Meriva®, the CurcuVET equivalent for humans) compared to ordinary curcumin. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with this supplementation. In a more recent, randomized, single-blind, crossover study in nine humans, total curcuminoid bioavailability as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC) was about 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional turmeric extract.

Curcumin has demonstrated its potential to help maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response. In numerous animal studies, curcumin has shown the ability to help maintain healthy intestinal mucosa under various adverse conditions. Among the effects noted in the various trials have been decreased nuclear factor-kappaB, nitric oxide, and free radicals in the colonic mucosa. For example, a small human pilot study on patients who had poor gastrointestinal health demonstrated that the administration of curcumin improved overall well-being, maintained the levels of biomarkers generally associated with the body's normal inflammatory response, and served as a non-drug adjunct that did not disrupt the use of conventional medications.

Several studies have illustrated curcumin's hepatoprotective effects, leading researchers to suggest its use can protect the liver from exogenous insults from environmental toxins. Curcumin also has the capacity to increase both the flow and solubility of bile. Curcumin's hepatoprotective effects are due in part to direct free radical scavenging; but curcumin also enhances the animal's natural antioxidant system, which increases glutathione levels, thereby aiding in hepatic detoxification and inhibiting nitrosamine formation.

A recent European canine study found CurcuVET was effective in helping to maintain the balance of markers associated with a normal inflammatory response.

In a similar equine study, the effect of CurcuVET on mares and foals was found to have a positive impact on maintaining normal inflammatory responses.

A recent human clinical study demonstrated that in more than 80 percent of patients with a long-term condition known to adversely affect ocular health, Meriva (the human equivalent of CurcuVET) was well tolerated, reduced symptoms of eye discomfort, improved overall quality of life, and helped maintain the eye's normal inflammatory response.

CurcuVET-SA50

Veterinary Gastrointestinal Support

 

Curcumin complexed with phosphatidylcholine for superior bioavailability

  • for maintenance of the animal's normal inflammatory response
  • provides potent antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity
  • significantly increased bioavailability from the phytosome preparation

Product Information

CurcuVET® is a unique, patented curcumin product available exclusively from Thorne Vet. For centuries people throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry) and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits including for joint health, hepatic support, gastrointestinal health, and cardiovascular function – by helping to maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response.

CurcuVET is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientists at Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to a phospholipid, in this case phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of cell membranes. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. By attaching a curcumin molecule to a PC molecule, the PC ushers the curcumin across the cell membrane for superior absorption.

Studies demonstrate CurcuVET supports a healthy inflammatory response in small animals and horses. A recent European study analyzed the bioactivity of CurcuVET compared to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and found their bioactivity was similar. The study's sponsors, who were studying canine arthritis, found CurcuVET was effective in down-regulating the pro-inflammatory substances, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB).

A similar equine study on the effect of CurcuVET on cytokine gene expression found significant down-regulation of interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-1RN in mares and inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2, TNF-α, and IL-1RN and increase in IL-6 in foals.

Similar results were achieved in an eight-month human trial of Meriva. Enhanced joint health was reflected in improvements in both clinical and biochemical end points.

A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated the superior bioavailability of curcumin phytosome (as Meriva®, the CurcuVET equivalent for humans) compared to ordinary curcumin. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with this supplementation. In a more recent, randomized, single-blind, crossover study in nine humans, total curcuminoid bioavailability as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC) was about 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional turmeric extract.

Gastriplex - Product Image
Gastriplex

Gastriplex - Veterinary Gastrointestinal Support

Complete GI support for small animals and horses

  • supports a healthy upper and lower GI tract
  • provides probiotics to enhance digestion
  • supports normal gut permeability

Product Information

Indiscretion in eating (like from a garbage can), poor quality pet foods, antibiotic use, and stress can all contribute to digestive upset in companion animals.

Intolerance to certain foods is commonly seen in veterinary practice. While avoiding the foods an animal is intolerant to can support a healthy GI tract, treating the cause is also essential. Increased gut permeability that allows for the undesirable absorption of larger protein fragments is often at the root of the problem. By improving gut integrity and decreasing gut permeability, the animal's sensitivity to foods can be greatly reduced.

Gastriplex is an innovative, comprehensive intestinal support product that combines amino acids and botanicals for mucosal support and gut integrity with probiotics and ingredients that support the animal's normal inflammatory response.

Glutamine plays a key role in maintaining mucosal cell integrity and gut barrier function. Glutamine also enhances the gut's immune function, in part by increasing the production of secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA), an antibody that promotes immunity. N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (NAG) also helps maintain normal intestinal permeability. NAG enhances mucus production and is involved in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans, the building blocks of connective tissue.

Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast that decreases intestinal permeability. Like glutamine, this beneficial yeast exerts its protective effect on the GI tract by increasing the production of sIgA. Bacillus coagulans is a safe, effective probiotic that survives in stomach acid and produces L(+) lactic acid in the intestine. Probiotics are successfully used to help maintain a healthy GI tract.

Slippery elm, a demulcent and emollient, provides soothing protection for the mucus membranes of the intestinal tract. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) supports a healthy intestinal lining by helping to increase blood flow and maintain normal muscle relaxation.

Quercetin, an abundant dietary flavonoid, has significant positive action in the intestinal tract. Gastriplex contains Thorne Vet's patented water-soluble quercetin.

Active Ingredients

Active Ingredients per Capsule:
N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine 125 mg.
L-Glutamine 100 mg.
Slippery Elm (bark) (Ulmus rubra) 100 mg.

Hepagen-Fc

Hepagen-Fc - Thorne Veterinary / Hepatic Support

Hepatic support for cats and small dogs

  • protects hepatic cells
  • supports normal phase I and II detoxification processes
  • supports healthy glutathione levels

Product Information

Because toxic components increasingly find their way into food, water, and the environment, the liver can be a very busy organ for companion animals. Hepagen-Fc provides a unique combination of the beneficial liver herbs milk thistle and curcumin (from turmeric), with antioxidants and important ingredients that support the liver's normal phase I and phase II detoxification processes. Hepagen-Fc contains the curcumin phytosome, CurcuVET®, a unique, well-absorbed curcumin/phosphatidylcholine complex.

Whether taken from food or as a supplement, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, has uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. CurcuVET is Indena?s unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. The beneficial effects of curcumin may be due to the fact that, in addition to being a potent antioxidant, it can help maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response.

Silybum marianum (milk thistle) contains several flavonolignans, the most potent of which is silybin. The antioxidant activity of silybin appears to stabilize hepatocyte membranes, neutralize free radicals, and maintain the liver's glutathione levels. Hepagen-Fc contains silybin in the form of a well-absorbed phytosome bound to phosphatidylcholine (Siliphos®).

The phosphatidylcholine content of CurcuVET and Siliphos – in addition to enhancing the absorption of these important hepatoprotective flavonoids – also provides liver support in its own right. Phosphatidylcholine is the most significant phospholipid in hepatic cell membranes. It helps regulate the gallbladder and is used extensively in the liver to move fats in and out of cells.

Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate acts as a cofactor for enzymes, catalyzes reactions with amino acids, and aids in the synthesis of non-essential amino acids. In this formula, the active form of vitamin B6, pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, is provided because healthy liver function is necessary for activation of vitamin B6. Vitamin B12 is required for proper digestion and absorption of food and is provided in one of its active coenzyme forms – methylcobalamin.

Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a derivative of glycine, the simplest amino acid. It is a building block for many important substances, including methionine and choline. Methionine is an essential sulfur-containing amino acid necessary for phase II detoxification. It helps metabolize fats and is a precursor to cysteine and taurine synthesis. It can be converted to cysteine, a component of glutathione, an important endogenous antioxidant.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is composed of the amino acid cysteine and a sulfhydryl group, enabling it to interact with disulfide bonds. NAC serves as a precursor for the synthesis of glutathione.

Inositol is an important lipotropic factor – a substance that helps the liver metabolize fats.

L-Methionine 22.5 mg.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 22.5 mg.
Dimethylglycine (Hydrochloride) 11.3 mg.

Immugen - Product Image
Immugen

Immugen

Immune support for small animals

  • comprehensive immune support product
  • vitamins, minerals, glandular, and herbs with immune-supportive properties
  • activates natural-killer cells
  • promotes the body's innate resistance to pathogens

Product Information

A properly functioning immune system is crucial to good health. Like other bodily processes, balance is the key. Small animals can face numerous challenges to their immune systems. Those at particular risk are very young and older dogs and cats. The common practice of combining multiple antigens into one vaccination or not spacing the vaccinations far enough apart can overwhelm an immature immune system in young animals or in an immune-compromised older animal.

Immugen for small animals is an exceptional immune support formula. This formula was designed to provide vitamins, minerals, amino acids, botanicals, glandulars, and other key ingredients that can optimize immune system function in dogs and cats.

Recent interest has surged in the immune-supporting effects of a number of nutrients and botanicals. Research has found many natural substances can promote the activity of phagocytes, T-lymphocytes, natural killer (NK) cells, and B-cells.

Echinacea angustifolia is well known in traditional botanical medicine for its benefit to the immune system. Studies have demonstrated Echinacea's ability to activate NK cells and enhance the ability of other cell types to engulf foreign substances. Astragalus membranaceus, an important Chinese botanical, has a long history of use as a tonic and immune-modulator, reportedly due to its ability to naturally enhance white blood cell counts. Currently, much of the research on Astragalus is focused on its immune-stimulating polysaccha-rides. Reishi stimulates B- and T-lymphocytes.

The thymus gland participates in many aspects of cellular immunity, including maturation of T-cell precursors; therefore, thymus extracts may naturally enhance several immune parameters. Zinc can affect multiple aspects of the immune system, including promoting acquired immunity and macrophage function. Vitamins A and C support the production and activity of white blood cells.

  ImmunoVET-C

ImmunoVET-C™ - Thorne Veterinary / Immune Support

serum immunoglobulin concentrate in powder for easy canine dosing

  • Supports a healthy immune response
  • Improves gut barrier function
  • Maintains normal inflammatory cytokine production
  • In three convenient sizes for cats, dogs, and horses

Product Information

ImmunoVET (ImmunoLin®*), an immunoglobulin concentrate of bioactive proteins, is derived from purified bovine serum. ImmunoVET contains at least 45 percent immunoglobulin G (IgG), plus lesser amounts of other immunoglobulins and bioactive proteins. The four primary bioactive proteins in ImmunoVET include:

  • Immunoglobulins – primarily IgG; an important part of humoral immunity
  • Transferrin – binds free iron, thereby preventing it from nourishing bacteria
  • Mitogenic growth factors – essential for nutrient utilization and helping to maintain a healthy gut barrier
  • Immune regulatory cytokines – known to stimulate secretion of secretory IgA, the body's first line of defense; help maintain a healthy inflammatory response
The gut is the first line of defense against invading organisms. Therefore, maintaining a healthy GI tract is essential for general immune support. ImmunoVET works with the animal's own immune system to help maintain gut barrier function. A 2002 study found bovine serum concentrate resulted in improved intestinal permeability, gut morphology (as measured by increased villous surface area and deepening crypts), and stool consistency.

Several animal studies have helped to elucidate the mechanisms of immunoglobulin concentrates in maintenance of a healthy immune response. In a 2004 study, immunoglobulin concentrate given to bacteria-challenged rats helped modulate the degree of activation of gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). The intestinal secretory response was also decreased, leading to decreased water content of the stool.

Dietary bovine plasma protein concentrates, particularly the IgG fraction, improve lean tissue growth and protein metabolism. This may have implications in failure to thrive and wound healing.

Evidence from animal studies suggests ImmunoVET may help maintain a normal inflammatory response. A study of immune-challenged rats found immunoglobulin concentrate helps maintain a healthy cytokine ratio in the gut mucosa.

The naturally occurring proteins in purified bovine immunoglobulin are concentrated using stringent quality control procedures in a facility that is compliant with FDA Good Manufacturing Practices for food products. The concentration process takes place in a closed system, preventing contamination. Only beef cattle from herds in the United States are used in the production of ImmunoLin. Bovine serum concentrates have been used therapeutically in recovering malnourished children with no evidence of adverse effects.

ModucareVET

ModucareVET - Thorne Veterinary / Immune Support

Plant sterols and sterolins – important advancements in naturally balancing the immune system

  • found naturally in all fruits and vegetables
  • provides an optimal sterol:sterolin ratio based on numerous clinical studies
  • helps maintain a healthy balance of T-helper 1/T-helper 2 white blood cells
  • modulates stress response by supporting optimal DHEA:cortisol ratios

Product Information

ModucareVET is an exclusive blend of plant sterols and sterolins that help promote a balanced immune system. Plant sterols – phytosterols and their glycosides (also known as phytosterolins) – are fats that are present in fruits, vegetables, and other plants. Beta-sitosterol (BSS) and its glycoside (BSSG) are the most abundant of these plant sterols. BSS and BSSG, even at very low levels, have been shown to enhance the activity of various cells in the body recognized as having positive immune system activity. ModucareVET improves the balance of T-helper 1 to T-helper 2 cells, and, as a result, enhances cellular immunity and down-regulates overactive immune responses.

ModucareVET supplementation also helps maintain a normal ratio of the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA, subsequently buffering negative stress responses. The potential of Moducare® to support immune health in a group of volunteers participating in an ultra-marathon was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Subjects in the Moducare group maintained a healthier immune response compared to individuals taking the placebo, as indicated by cortisol levels that did not increase in response to the exercise stress in those taking Moducare.

PhytoprofenVET - Veterinary Gastrointestinal Support

Botanical extracts to support an animal's normal inflammatory response

  • exclusive to Thorne – well-absorbed CurcuVET curcumin phytosome
  • support for post-operative / post-injury bruising and swelling
  • for maintenance of the animal's normal inflammatory response
  • provides support for connective tissues

Product Information

Phytoprofen is a novel combination of botanicals, including a synergistic blend of the Ayurvedic herbs – Picrorhiza, Boswellia, and curcumin (bound to phosphatidylcholine for enhanced absorption – CurcuVET®) – all of which support the animal's normal inflammatory response. To these botanicals is added bromelain – a protein-digesting enzyme complex from pineapple that studies have shown can reduce bruising after injury.

The botanical extracts in PhytoprofenVET are also helpful in minimizing post-operative / post-injury bruising and swelling. Supplementation with bromelain following blunt injuries to the musculoskeletal system resulted in reductions in swelling and tenderness.

A recent in vivo study examined Boswellia extract for its effect on glycosaminoglycan (GAG) metabolism. GAGs form an important component of an animal's connective tissues. Boswellia significantly reduced the degradation of GAGs compared to controls.

CurcuVET, a curcumin/phosphatidylcholine phytosome, demonstrates superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin, with significantly greater amounts absorbed and taken up by the liver. A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemo-therapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated the superior bioavailability of curcumin phytosome (as Meriva®, the CurcuVET equivalent for humans) compared to ordinary curcumin. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with this supplementation. In a more recent (soon to be published) randomized, single-blind, crossover study in nine humans, total curcuminoid bioavailability as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC) was about 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional turmeric extract.

SuperEPAVET

Omega-3 fatty acids with 425 mg EPA and 270 mg DHA per gelcap

  • essential for maintaining healthy heart and brain function
  • molecular distillation removes heavy metals and other potential contaminants
  • enhances mood and memory
  • supports healthy neurological development
  • supports healthy skin and joint function

Product Information

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because dogs and cats must get them from food or supplementation; i.e., these fatty acids cannot be made from other substances in the body. Cats, in particular, do not produce the desaturase enzymes required to convert alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); thus, omega-3 supplementation from a fish source (EPA and DHA) rather than a plant source (ALA) is critical.

EPA and DHA are beneficial for the cardiovascular system. They support good circulation by maintaining healthy blood vessels, optimizing vascular endothelial function, and maintaining already healthy blood lipid levels.

The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are also supportive of healthy brain function. EPA and DHA are not just important during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development, they are important throughout life. In particular, cognitive functioning in the aging animal can be supported by DHA and EPA.

Thorne Vet?s fish oil products have been among the best-sellers for over two decades because of their exceptional purity and quality. Recent concentration technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules. As always, Thorne Vet provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

Another innovation from Thorne Vet – Super EPA?VET is in a fish-derived gelatin capsule.

Active Ingredients

Active Ingredients per Gelcap:
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) (from Fish Oil) 425 mg.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) (from Fish Oil) 270 mg.
Inactive Ingredients: Gelatin (from tilapia) and Glycerin (vegetable source) gelcap, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E).

For use in cats and dogs only.

Recommended for supporting dermatological, cognitive, and cardiovascular health.

Directions for Use:
Cats: 1 gelcap daily
Dogs: 2 gelcaps per 25 lbs body weight daily
 

Warnings

Cautions:
Safe use in pregnant animals or animals intended for breeding has not been proven.

QuercetoneVET 60c

 (two in stock)

Widely distributed in the plant kingdom, quercetin is the most abundant of the flavonoid molecules. It is found in many often-consumed foods, including apples, onions, teas, berries, vegetables of the cabbage family, seeds, and nuts. Quercetin is thought to be an essential component of the bioflavonoid activity of many plants.

Quercetin has shown to possess many beneficial effects on health, including cardiovascular support and protection of the gastrointestinal tract. A number of quercetin's effects appear to be due to its antioxidant activity. Quercetin scavenges free radicals and stabilizes mast cells. By itself, and combined with vitamin C, quercetin can reduce the incidence of oxidative damage to skin and nerves caused by glutathione depletion.

All flavonoid molecules are similar in their chemical structure; however, small changes in the molecule can dramatically change their solubility, activity, and affinity for certain tissues. For example, quercetin is typically poorly absorbed. Thorne Research developed a process that slightly alters the molecule, significantly increasing its solubility in water and hence its absorption. QuercetoneVET contains Thorne's patent-protected, water-soluble quercetin.
