Our Heart Health for Cats & Dogs contains several sources of human-grade antioxidants, amino acids and other beneficial nutrients that many dogs and cats need for cardiovascular health.
- Rutin (from the flower bud of Sophora japonica, or Japanese Pagoda tree)
A bioflavonoid or plant pigment with powerful antioxidant properties, naturally occurring rutin supports blood vessel health and blood circulation.
An amino acid found primarily in muscle meat, concentrations are highest in your pet’s heart, muscles, brain and retina. The main source of taurine is found in your pet’s diet. Taurine supports cardiovascular, eye and immune health.
This amino acid acts as a precursor for key metabolites, like glutathione and creatine, and supports cardiovascular health and overall well-being of animals and humans.
- Organic Hawthorn Berry Fruit
Acting as an antioxidant bioflavonoid, hawthorn supports optimal circulation to the ventricles of the heart. Multiple studies show it promotes exercise tolerance and supports overall cardiovascular health in dogs and cats.
A sugar molecule that’s part of your pet’s DNA and cells’ primary energy source, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), D-ribose supports heart function and energy production in heart muscle.
- Trimethylglycine (TMG)
A plant compound also known as betaine, TMG may help cells adapt to stress and support their energy production. TMG also supports healthy blood flow and blood vessel health.
Comprised of the amino acids lysine and methionine, L-carnitine is produced in your pet’s liver and kidneys and stored in heart, brain and skeletal muscle tissues. It plays a key role in fat metabolism, allowing fat to be utilized for energy production for heart function.
- Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) (from Decaffeinated Green Tea Leaf Extract)
A polyphenolic component of green tea with the caffeine removed, EGCG offers powerful antioxidant benefits. It’s easily absorbed into all body tissues to support healthy cells.
- Pomegranate Fruit Extract
This extract possesses strong antioxidant and protective qualities to support cell and gut health in animals.
- d-Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E from non-GMO sunflower)
The most active form of vitamin E, d-alpha tocopherol functions as a potent antioxidant that helps protect heart cells and tissues against oxidative stress in dogs and cats. Plus, it supports circulation and healthy red blood cell walls.
- Pine Bark Extract
From the bark of Pinus radiata, this pine bark is rich in total phenols and naturally occurring chemicals called proanthocyanidins. The extract acts as a powerful antioxidant to support heart tissue and muscle health.
Converted to the active form niacinamide by intestinal bacteria, niacin supports healthy blood levels of lipoproteins, such as LDL, and triglycerides.
All of these carefully selected ingredients work together to support your pet’s heart function and overall cardiovascular health.
And to ensure your cat or dog will look forward to this exceptional Heart Health formula, we’ve blended the nutrients into a delicious base of Certified Organic Cheddar Cheese powder.
