Posted on 01.03.18 | News & Events
ImmuShield, a hyperimmunized egg product used to boost the health of your dog, is now available through Chewy.com. Nutritional supplement containing enriched egg product, probiotics and beta glucans to support your dog’s immune and digestive system. Mother nature designed the egg to support a chick’s natural defenses against disease and health challenges. ImmuShield contains egg powder enriched with pet specific antibodies and other immune cofactors. This very palatable hyper immune egg powder (HIEP) is a highly effective, natural way to support a robust immune system in your pet allowing them to live an active, healthy life.
Beta glucans contained in ImmuShield are extracted from yeast cell walls. Studies have shown these all-natural compounds act to regulate the immune system making it more efficient. For example, beta glucans stimulate the activity of macrophages, which are versatile immune cells that kill invading pathogens. Macrophages also produce cytokines which enable immune cells to communicate with one another to better fight health challenges. Beta glucans have been used to treat high cholesterol, diabetes and cancer.
The health benefits of probiotics contained in ImmuShield are well documented. These beneficial bacteria are a safe and effective way to support your pet’s digestive system. For instance, a healthy gut improves digestion and absorption of nutrients. And, since about 70% of the immune system is located in the gastrointestinal tract, probiotics are a wonderful tool to help maintain a strong immune system.
Betaine contained in ImmuShield is an all-natural compound found in beets that hydrates cells in your pets’ bodies. This provides protection against dehydration which can lead to osmotic problems and heat stress. Betaine enhances the growth, activity and vitality of cells and benefits your pet’s health and well-being.
