How do its active ingredients work?



It is the metabolic precursor of serotonin, the neurotransmitter best known for inducing feelings of calmness and drowsiness. Studies have shown that low tryptophan levels increase aggression, anger and depression, whereas high tryptophan levels have a therapeutic effect in pathologically aggressive patients and promote a feeling of well-being and elevated mood.



The transport of tryptophan across the blood-brain barrier depends on plasma concentrations of both tryptophan and other large neutral amino acids (LNAA; tyrosine, phenylalanine, leucine, isoleucine, and valine) as these compete for thesamecarriermechanism. A high postprandial level of insulin in blood after a carbohydrate load favors the transport of tryptophan to the brain because it mediates the uptake of LNAA into muscle but not tryptophan, which is largely bound to plasma albumin, thus increasing the tryptophan/LNAA ration in blood and favors the transport of the latter into the brain.


Vitamin B6

It is needed in the synthesis of serotonin from tryptophan by aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase.


Vitamin B3

It suppresses the activity of tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase, which is one of the key enzymes in the conversion of tryptophan to niacin. If tryptophan is converted to niacin, it wil not be available as a precursor of serotonin in the brain, and thus, supplementation with vitamin B3 can reduce the “loss” of tryptophan to nicotinic acid.


Trypsin hydrolyzate bovine casein

It is a bioactive peptide coming from the tryptic hydrolysis of αs1-casein presents in cow’smilk, which has affinity for GABA (γ-amino-butyricacid) receptors, exerting benzodiazepine-like effect. α-casozepine has been proven to improve reactions when interacting with strangers, signs linked to fear (including aggression), as well as neuro-vegetative signs, often linked to stress and anxiety.

  • In acute stress situations: Noises, environmental or routine changes, travel by car, visits from strangers, visits to the veterinarian, socialization with other animals, etc.
  • In chronic stress situations: Lack of physical space, absence of activity or environmental stimulus, senile animal or favor the regulation of sleep.
  • Support to work on a modification of the behavior together with a professional.


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

  • Animals with hyperglycemia.

Watch out! Mindkun can enhance the effects of benzodiazepines.

Daily recommendation to be administered, if possible, between meals to enhance the effect of its active ingredients. If necessary, you can add a little water until you get a paste texture:

*8.6 g per spoon


During how much time?

  • In acute stress situations: Anticipation of known stressors: Administer daily at least 4 days before the stressor and/or maintain as long as this persists.In cases of high stress,it is recommended to double the dose the day before and while the stressor is present.
  • In chronic stress situation: Chronic anxiety and/or nervousness: Administer daily while symptoms persist.
  • Support to work on a modification of the behavior together with a profesional: Administer daily while working in a modification of the behavior. During the first two weeks the daily dose can even be doubled. Then, it is recommended to make a gradual decrease to avoid relapses. When the professional indicates it, reduce the daily dose by half for 15 days and then administer one every other day half of the dose for another 15 days.
