VitEok

Vitamin E

The inflammation generates a large amount of free radicals, which themselves accelerate the inflammatory process. Vitamin E is one of the most effective antioxidants for protecting polyunsaturated fatty acids of cell membranes from oxidation. Vitamin E inhibits lipid oxidation by scavenging peroxyl radicals much faster than these radicals can react with fatty acids or proteins from adjacent cell membranes.

Vitcok

Vitamin C

It is the most powerfull reducing agent available for cells. Vitamin C regenerates glutathione enzyme, quenches free radicals both intra and extracellularly, and protects against free radical-mediated protein inactivation associated with oxidative bursts of neutrophils.

Seok

Selenium

It acts as cofactor of glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that protects tissues against oxidative stress, by catalyzing the reduction of hydrogen peroxides and organic hydroperoxides and by regenerating vitamin E.

Condroitinok

Chondroitin

It reduces cartilage degradation (inhibits metalloproteinases) and promotes cartilage regeneration (stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans and the synthesis of collagen.

Glucosaminaok

Glucosamine

It possesses an abolic effect on the cartilage including stimulation of glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan production. Moreover, it also acts by inhibiting the activity of degradative cartilage enzymes (aggrecanases and metalloproteinases).

omega3ok

Omega 3 fatty acids

They improve the clinical signs of osteoarthritis, clinical orthopedic examination, gait analysis of ground reaction forces, along with a decrease in pain.Being a clear example of the application of nutrigenomics in the nutrition of dogs and cats, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) inhibits the upregulation of aggrecanases, by blocking the signal at the level of messenger RNA, reducing the articular cartilage degradation. Moreover, omega 3 fatty acids modulate eicosanoid production. Eicosanoids resulting from omega-3 fatty acid metabolism are less stimulants of the inflammatory response than those resulting from omega-6 fatty acids. Moreover, they are the precursors of resolvins and protectins, counter-regulatory inflammatory substances that serve as agonists for endogenous anti-inflammatory mechanisms and significantly act in the resolution of inflammation.

curcuminaok

Curcumin

Its anti-inflammatory properties appears to be mediated through the inhibition of induction of important enzymes that mediate inflammatory processes like COX-2, LOX, and iNOS production of cytokines such as interferon-gamma and tumor necrosis factor, and activation of transcription factors like NF-κB and AP-1.

piperinaok

Piperine

It increases curcumin bioavailability (by 20-fold), due to piperine’s inhibition of hepatic glucuronidation and intestinal metabolism of curcumin.

  • Osteoarthritis that occurs with lameness.
  • Animals with existing orthopedic diseases, older animals,or patients who suffer traumas or obesity.
  • Animals with a high level of activity.

 

It is not recommended the use of ARTHROKUN in case of:

  • Patients with clotting problems, co-administration with drugs that inhibit platelet-aggregation, or hemorrhagic processes.
  • Situations with subclinical iron deficiency or other diseases associated with iron.

Watch out! Arthrokun may slightly dye the fur of light-coated animals.

Daily recommendation to be added to the food (on top). This dose can be divided in different shots:

Spoons* Amount for
0.5 2 months


9.2 g per spoon

 

During how much time?

  • Osteoarthritis: Administration is recommended for at least 1 month and as long as the symptoms persist.
  • Osteoarthritis with controlled symptomatology: Reduce the dailydose up to half as maintenance.
  • Animals with existing orthopedic diseases: Start the administration before the onset of symptoms as a preventive treatment.
  • Animals with a high level of activity: Administer half of the recommended daily dose as a preventive treatment.
