How do its active ingredients work?

omega3ok

Omega 3 fatty acids

Promote cell membrane health, since docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is required for maintenance of normal brain cell function and lowers amyloid levels and plaque formation. Furthermore, omega 3 fatty acids have anti-inflammaotry properties, by modulating 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.

fosfatidilserinaok

Phosphatidylserine

It is the major building block of the cell membrane that is purported to facilitate neuronal signal transduction and enhance cholinergic transmission. Phosphatidylserine has been shown to positively affect neurotransmitter release and neurotransmitter receptor density in several brain regions from animals with memory impairments, so it gives protection against neuronal death (neuroprotection).

lipoicok

Alpha lipoic acid

It participates in redox reactions and increases intracellular concentrations of glutathione, a primary water-soluble antioxidant within cells, and it is essential for aerobic metabolism.

carnitinaok

L-carnitine

It is the transporter of fatty acids from cytosol to mitocondria, thus being responsable for the limiting step of lipid oxidation. The increase in carnitine cell levels improves the transport of fatty acids to the mitochondria and, consequently, the metabolism of fats.

VitEok

Vitamin E

It 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 powerful reducing agent available for cells. Vitamin C regenerates glutathione enzyme and quenches free radicals both intra and extracellularly.

Seok

Selenium

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

carotenoidsok

Carotenoids

They possess antioxidant and immunostimulant properties.

  • Cognitive dysfunction syndrome: When the animal undergoes one or more of the following behavioral changes associated with aging: disorientation, altered interactions with people or other animals, sleep-wake cycle alterations, house-soiling, and changes in activity level.
  • Prevention of cognitive dysfunction: Because senile neurodegeneration is a progressive process, the sooner the alterations are corrected, the more effective the treatment will be. Dogs are often considered older when they reach half of their life expectancy. Consequently,  Elderkun administration should be considered around the age of five years for large- and giant-breed dogs and around seven years for small dogs, as a preventive measure.

 

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

  • Patients with clotting problems, co-administration with drugs that inhibit platelet-aggregation, or hemorrhagic processes.

 

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

Weight Spoons* Amount for
<10 kg 0.5 2 months
10-20 kg 1.0 1 month
20-30 kg 1.5 20 days
>30 kg 2.0 15 days


*7.5 g per spoon

 

During how much time?

  • Cognitive dysfunction syndrome: Administration is recommended for at least 3 months. In any case, since the symptoms begin, it is recommended to administer the product chronically.
  • Prevention of cognitive dysfunction: Administer half of the recommended daily dose as a preventive treatment. The product can be administered chronically without any contraindication.
