    Animal Health Canine Geriatric Basics by Thorne Research

    Thorne Research Animal Health Canine Geriatric Basics - 120 Capsules

    Thorne Research Animal Health 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.

    Thorne Research Animal Health Canine Geriatric Basics 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.

    Thorne Research Animal Health 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thorne Research's Mission
    At Thorne Research, their mission is to enhance the health and well-being of people by providing superior dietary supplements that have the highest level of quality and purity - thereby creating the most respected and valued company in the dietary supplement industry.

    The Thorne Difference.
    For more than 25 years, Thorne has relentlessly pursued the highest possible quality and bioavailability in dietary supplements. At Thorne, they actually manufacture products that they sell - a key difference that allows Thorne to control every aspect of the manufacturing process and ensure that every Thorne product is in pure, completely hypoallergenic form, and without the common additives, flowing agents, and binders used throughout the industry.

    A few other companies have tried to do what Thorne does, and many others claim to have the same philosophy and quality, but nobody has been able to duplicate what Thorne's clients call "Thorne Quality." Thorne has changed the industry in many ways over the past two decades, and they continue to raise the bar and set new standards in product formulation, raw material purity, manufacturing, and quality control.

    Thorne's Commitment to Purity
    Practitioners have become accustomed to seeing the vague "We use only the purest ingredients" in the promotional materials of almost every dietary supplement company. Perhaps these companies truly believe that. Perhaps they don't know any better. Nevertheless, Thorne Research, for more than 25 years, has been the standard by which companies in the industry are judged for product purity. Practitioners rely on Thorne as the companythey trust for their extremely allergic, chemically sensitive, and immune-compromised patients.

    Purity Takes Extra Effort
    For example, instead of purchasing prediluted vitamin D, as other companies do, Thorne performs its own dilution to avoid detrimental ingredients, such as the preservatives or lactose that are found in many commercially available dilutions.

    Ingredients You Don't Want
    Magnesium Stearate: Good for speed-hungry encapsulating machines. Not necessarily good for you. Manufacturing encapsulated dietary supplements isn't easy. Pure powdered ingredients are difficult to mix because they are eitherextremely dry, sticky with botanical oils, or attract unwanted moisture. So most manufacturers add magnesium stearate and other agents such as lactose and dextrose to make the powder flow quickly and easily through their high-volume machines. Problem is, these additives may compromise the bioavailability of the nutrients in the supplement, and might cause allergenic problems. At Thorne, they take a different approach.

    Thorne will never utilize large fatty acid excipients in its manufacturing processes - ingredients such as magnesium stearate or stearic acid. These excipients are utilized as flowing agents to ensure that maximum productivity is obtained from capsuling and tableting machines. There are documented detrimental effects directly attributed to long chain fatty acids utilized as manufacturing flowing agents. Every qualified pharmaceutical compounder recognizes that large fatty acids, such as magnesium stearate, can interfere with product dissolution and influence absorption. Virtually all companies, because of the economic impact, ignore this data. As with most industries, the bottom line dictates the level of quality. The dietary supplement industry has one exception: Thorne Research, the company that does not compromise. Nevertheless, if a company cannot manufacture products without using detrimental excipients, they should not allude to being either "hypoallergenic" or "pure."

    The Bottom Line?
    Thorne is the only hypoallergenic dietary supplement manufacturer with the highest degree of purity that you - and your most severely allergic, chemically sensitive, and immune-compromised patients - can truly trust.

    Quality Ingredients: A Higher Standard
    At Thorne, theyare committed to setting a higher standard of quality when it comes to ingredients. To produce their truly hypoallergenic encapsulated supplements, Thorne uses only the purest and finest ingredients available.

    Every manufacturer has two basic options when purchasing raw materials: purchase either truly pure raw materials, or purchase raw materials to which substances have been added to facilitate manufacturing. This fundamental dilemma translates to these very typical questions: "Do I purchase pure vitamin C or vitamin C with additives?" "Do I purchase pure B vitamins or coated B vitamins for taste masking?" "Do I purchase pure enzymes such as pancreatin, pepsin, and bromelain or enzymes diluted with lactose?"

    There are few commercial sources for vitamins B12, D, K, or biotin that are not diluted with substances such as lactose, cornstarch, and preservatives such as BHT. That's why Thorne developed methods that allow them to use pure, undiluted sources of these nutrients - and many others. It's just one more example that when it comes to quality, what everyone else accepts as an industry standard isn't good enough. While some companies say they are raising their standards....at Thorne they set them.
