Inflammation and aging
Over the past thirty years, scientists have conducted extensive research to determine the underlying causes of the natural aging process. One of the most significant findings from this research is that the amount of inflammation present in the body increases as animals, including dogs and humans, grow older. Daily resveratrol administration promotes appropriate inflammation levels in the body to support the long-term health and wellness of your dog.
What is resveratrol?
Resveratrol (trans-3, 5, 4′-Trihydroxystilbene) belongs to a class of natural compounds called stilbenes. Resveratrol and other stilbenes are small molecules that are rapidly synthesized by plants in response to attacks by bacteria, fungi and predators. Stilbenes presently are the focus of numerous biomedical research studies.
Compounds within this chemical class have displayed therapeutic potential through their capability to support a healthy inflammatory response in various tissues throughout the bodies of humans and animals.
How does resveratrol work?
Resveratrol proactively supports a healthy inflammatory response in animals by reducing gene expression of inflammatory mediators. Conversely, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) react to the body’s inflammatory response after it has begun and has affected tissues. Daily administration of NSAIDs also produces unwanted side effects in many animals, including ulcers and kidney and liver dysfunction.
Resverasyn® -- Stable, bioavailable 99% resveratrol
Petthrive products contain a proprietary resveratrol ingredient called Resverasyn®, an ultra-high purity resveratrol that has been microencapsulated to maximize the bioavailability and stability of the resveratrol present in Petthrive. Micronization reduces the particle to a size where it is easily absorbed by the body, and encapsulation provides a coating that both protects the bioactive resveratrol from deterioration and increases the distribution of the molecule to affected tissues.
Use of our microencapsulated resveratrol product, Resverasyn, ensures your dog will receive consistent therapeutic doses of bioavailable resveratrol. Our Petthrive products are easily administered in oral dosage forms rather than by injection, and do not require a veterinarian prescription.
