Allergy Shield for Dogs and Cats - Total Animal Health
Vendor: Total Animal Health
What is Allergy Shield?
Just like humans, our pets can develop allergies and experience inflammation in their joints. We have created a powerful antioxidant, AllergyShield, to protect your pet from allergies whilst calming inflammation.
100% pure and natural, Allergy Shield is a concentrated powder. Containing Turmeric, obtained from the rhizome (underground stem) of the plant, Curcuma longa, contains compounds called curcuminoids, the most important being curcumin. Curcumin has many beneficial effects that are outlined below.
The benefits of curcumin
Curcumin has anti-inflammatory activity. It inhibits the production of chemicals in the body called cytokines that promote inflammation. It is used to treat inflammatory diseases, particularly osteoarthritis (an inflammatory disease of the joint) and inflammatory skin conditions.
Curcumin is also a potent antioxidant. Among other factors, the disease process in osteoarthritis involves the accumulation of damaging free radicals within cells because the mechanisms for eliminating them become overloaded. The antioxidant activity of curcumin protects the cells and tissues of the joint (as well as other tissues of the body) from the damaging effects of these free radicals.
Further, curcumin is an immunomodulatory agent that supports a healthy immune system.
Other beneficial effects of curcumin have also been reported. These include protection of the liver from toxic compounds, protective effects on the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems, inhibition of platelet aggregation (clot formation), inhibition of cancer development and antimicrobial effects.
The bioavailability of curcumin
Allergy Shield contains optimal levels of medium-chain triglycerides and piperine to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin. Bioavailability refers to the levels of a compound in the tissues of the body (where the compound exerts its beneficial effects) relative to the given dose (amount ingested for an orally-administered compound). So if the bioavailability of a compound is increased, the levels of the compound in tissues are increased. Generally, the higher the level of the compound in a tissue, the greater the compound's beneficial effect.
The safety of Allergy Shield
Allergy Shield powder is laboratory tested and of the highest quality, providing you with safety and peace of mind.
Allergy Shield is a natural, effective alternative to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and is not associated with the side effects of these drugs. It may be used together with these drugs.
When to give Allergy Shield
Give Allergy Shield to maintain optimal overall health of your pet, particularly of the immune, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems.
