The Benefits of resveratrol for Pets
Joint and Bone Health
Resveratrol has been shown in research studies to reduce some osteoarthritis markers and to have anti-inflammatory properties – therefore providing beneficial effects on pain and inflammation in animals. Also known as degenerative joint disease, animals begin to slow down as they age, have difficulty rising from a laying position, and display stiffness or lameness as they move about. Chronic discomfort can lead to changes in attitude and behavior. Resveratrol has anti-inflammatory properties, providing a remedial effect on pain and inflammation in animals.
Resveratrol has been shown in research studies to protect the body from oxidative stress. Biological aging is characterized by an increasing accumulation of free radicals, or oxygen-containing molecules causing damage to the body’s cells, proteins and DNA, which can contribute to a cognitive decline as animals age. Resveratrol contains antioxidants which combat these free radicals within the body, balancing the body and improving brain and memory functions.
Resveratrol has been shown in studies to offer the body cardioprotective mechanisms due to its ability to upregulate eNOS (endothelial nitirc oxide synthase), which ultimately dilates the blood vessels, increases blood flow and lowers blood pressure in animals.
Resveratrol has been shown in research studies to support a healthy metabolic system in animals – the process by which the body converts what they eat and drink into energy. Unbalanced blood insulin and glucose levels can lead to unhealthy weight gain, unsoundness, and in cases with horses may lead to Equine Metabolic Syndrome and laminitis. Resveratrol helps support a normal metabolic function in pets.
