Green Lipped Mussels
The Green Lipped Mussel is found in the pristine waters off the coast of New Zealand. They are an excellent source of Chondroitin Sulphate, Glucosamine and Omega 3 (EPA/DHA) – nutrients that support pets with arthritis, joint pain, stiffness, cartilage wear and general inflammation of the joints from injury or age related conditions.
MethylSulfonylMethane is a rich source of Sulphur, which plays an important part in making collagen and glucosamine for healthy bones and joints. It is both anti- inflammatory and antioxidant and can help with arthritis, joint pain, stiffness, cartilage wear and general inflammation of the joints from injury or age related conditions. It also provides support for the immune system.
Vitamin E is one of our pets primary antioxidants against oxidative damage that can affect all parts of the body. It is also included to prevent oxidation of Squeeze Vita Sticks’ primary ingredients.
EPA/DHA from Omega 3
A powerful anti-inflammatory that can support inflammatory processes in all cells. It’s also helpful for the immune system and supports arthritic joints. An all-round superstar for pets!
CoQ10 (Co Enzyme Q10)
CoQ10 is a potent antioxidant that supports heart cells and can boost energy by supporting mitochondrial health. It can enhance blood flow, lower blood pressure and protect blood vessels.
L-carnitine is an amino acid often used in with other medications to treat dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), a type of heart disease in dogs. It also helps turn fat into useable energy in pets and is necessary for optimal heart, brain, and muscle function
Taurine is an essential amino acid that supports normal heart function in pets as they age and can help with blood flow. It’s also a great support for immunity, as well as brain and eye health.
Grapeseed Extract is a potent proanthocyanidin antioxidant that improves blood flow and therefore, a great support for the whole body. It has anti–inflammatory and antioxidative properties and research demonstrates GSE can slow and prevent cataractogenesis in canines.
Similar to Lutein, Astaxanthin is another carotenoid antioxidant that exerts its effects on the eye with research reporting it may protect against light-induced retinal damage, protect against age-related macular degeneration, and support ocular blood flow.
An essential vitamin required for carbohydrate and energy metabolism and nerve function. Cats and dogs cannot synthesize it and must get it from diet.
Required for energy generation and normal oxidation reactions in the body. It can help strengthen skin health and immunity. It supports a healthy coat, skin, eyesight and muscle.
It is an essential vitamin and is necessary for energy generation in the body and oxidation/reduction reactions in the body. It can help skin protection and the health of the digestive system. It’s sometimes used to treat inflammatory skin conditions in dogs.
Pantothenic Acid (B5)
It's needed as a coenzyme in the metabolism of fat, carbohydrates and protein. It helps make red blood cells, promotes hormone production, and energy production in pets.
It is necessary for protein and amino acid metabolism, and it is necessary to maintain normal homocysteine levels in the blood and healthy cognitive function in pets. Also helps maintain a healthy potassium-sodium balance in dogs.
It can help your pet’s skin health. Required for amino acid and fat metabolism and normal muscle growth. It’s a common supplement for dogs with dry skin, and a big support for healthy skin, coat and nails.
Folic Acid (B9)
Required for cell and blood production. It can help reproductive system health and is necessary for nerves, and known to benefit fetal growth during pregnancy in dogs, and growth and development in kittens.
It is necessary for normal folic acid metabolism, important for cell growth, carb and fat metabolism, a healthy nervous system, healthy digestive system, blood and immunity.
Vitamin D3 is essential for calcium and phosphorus to be absorbed and used, and it is necessary for the formation and maintenance of bones. Vitamin D also affects multiple functions in the skin, including keratinocyte proliferation. Just like human hair, keratin is the main protein in animal fur. D3 is also an important immune system support.
Milk Thistle is a source of the flavonoid – silymarin, that can protect the liver from toxins. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Curcumin is the active compound in Turmeric which may be effective in hepatic disease, cirrhosis and decreasing oxidative stress. It helps protect the liver against damage caused by free radicals and supports detoxification.
Known as the “immune” nutrient, the ratio of zinc to copper is also important in liver disease. If there's a zinc deficiency, there's a risk of liver cell function and inflammatory liver disease. Zinc deficiency can impact the liver's capacity for regeneration.
MCT is a medium-chain fatty acid, but unlike other fats, it digests and absorbs quickly. It helps provide energy directly to the brain, especially for older pets’ brains that cannot use glucose right away.
L-Arginine is an amino acid that’s important in the management of blood circulation, blood pressure and making proteins that aid in brain health and cognition.
Vitamin C is an important nutrient, co-factor and antioxidant for the brain, supporting vascular function, neurotransmitter production and more.
Amino Acids are the building blocks of the proteins that our pets eat, the proteins our pets make, neurotransmitters, muscles, enzymes, co-factors and more. Cats have higher requirements for proteins and amino acids than dogs. Essential amino acids for dogs are arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. It’s the same for cats, with the addition of taurine. Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) are included in that list, and support muscle development and liver health.
Vitamin A supports healthy eyes in pets (including night vision) and skin, immune function and the formation of various body parts in growing animals.
Potassium is an electrolyte and is vital for pet health. It assists the functioning of electrical charges in the heart, nerves, and muscles. Without it, pets may be abnormally tired or reluctant to eat.
Vitamin K is essential for transporting calcium to bones and required for healthy blood function and arteries in pets.
Pectin is a soluble fiber that helps maintain a healthy digestive environment
Omega 6 Fatty Acids
Omega-6’s are found in all animal proteins and is necessary for growth, reproduction and the prevention of skin and coat problems.
Phosphorus is a mineral needed for healthy teeth, bones, and metabolism. It works alongside calcium. It is also essential for supporting healthy kidney function.
Has a strong anti-oxidant effect, which supports vision and healthy aging in pets.
Selenium, a powerful antioxidant to support cells in removing ROS (Free Radicals).
