NUPRO® LYFE-SPYCE® FACT - The incidence of health problems in dogs is on the rise. Pet owners are growing increasingly concerned over the wellness of their furry companions. FACT - Apoptosis is the normal biological process programmed into your dog's DNA that safely and naturally removes old and damaged cells from the body. This process is critical to maintain good health and vitality. This is important in understanding cell disorders, because these cells have, in a simplistic sense, developed a way to avoid Apoptosis. Apoptosis levels are influenced by many factors. When these levels become diminished, the body needs a boost! Certain plants contain naturally occurring substances called Apoptogens that are able to support Apoptosis. NUPRO® Lyfe-Spyce® is a proprietary plant-based formula designed to provide key ingredients that support and optimize multiple organ and immune system function in dogs whose quality of life may be challenged by debilitating health issues so common today. NUPRO® Lyfe-Spyce®, used daily, will provide an excellent source of protection for all adult dogs as it works to continually enhance your dog’s natural defenses against harmful environmental factors and oxidative stress by maintaining his/her overall vitality and well-being.

Powerful Antioxidant - Low-grade inflammation greatly increases the risk of developing certain health disorders. What's the link between inflammation & oxidation? In a nutshell -- the body produces free radicals — Free Radicals cause Oxidation -- Oxidation causes Inflammation -- Inflammation causes damage to cells. By neutralizing Free Radicals, antioxidants may prevent Oxidation. Medicinal Mushroom Complex---Shiitake/Maitake/Reishi Shiitake, Maitake and Reishi mushrooms have grown wild since prehistoric times. Their therapeutic value has been prized in Asian countries, where they originated, for thousands of years. In the past few decades, these mushrooms have become more popular in the United States as a result of an expanding body of scientific research supporting their numerous health benefits. Shiitake mushrooms contain calcium, vitamin B2 and vitamin C. It is the second most widely cultivated mushroom. Organic Non-GMO Fermented Soy Protein The culturing process improves absorption. Converts key isoflavones and Phyto-nutrients, genistin and diadzin, into their active antioxidant forms genistein and diadzein. The benefit of culturing makes it easier for the body to digest and absorb the goodness of soy. When you culture, you’re basically using beneficial microbial cultures to pre-digest. Those cultures transform large, hard-to-digest molecules into small, easy-to-digest ones. Not only that, culturing soy also reduces its allergic qualities to near zero. The fermentation of organic whole soy improves the digestibility and bioavailability of soy proteins and isoflavones. Ginger Root The real winner with ginger is that it may decrease nausea. Decreased appetite caused by nausea is really common in dogs with certain health problems. Feeling sick to the stomach can be caused by taking certain medications or invasive procedures. Ginger may have an immune stimulating ability which is a plus since dogs with an ailment usually are immune compromised. The body is weakened when the immune system is stressed and suppressed. Cinnamon Helps to prevent the formation of free radicals, supports cardiovascular health, and supports a normal inflammatory response action to ease discomfort resulting from arthritis and joint problems. The scent is said to increase canine awareness and acuity. Also Includes Barley Malt, Piper Nigrum (black pepper for better absorption) and Sunflower Lecithin.
