Purica Recovery SA Extra Strength
When a cell is irritated or damaged, or when it begins to age, its membranes break down. As a result, compounds contained within the cell walls are released into the cellular matrix. Some of these substances, such as histamine, give rise to inflammation and associated pain.
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury. It is characterized by redness, swelling, heat and moderate to intense discomfort. When a joint becomes inflamed, your pet may experience any or all of these symptoms. This can prevent the joint from moving properly, leading to stiffness and loss of function. Researchers have found that the “dis-eases” of aging such as arthritis, decreased ability to healand coat changes, have similar underlying factors: a decrease in cell stability leading to membrane damage and subsequent release of irritating compounds.
The ingredients in Recovery®SA work by stabilizing the membranes of the cells, healing existing damage and aiding in the prevention of further damage. On a practical level, this means quality of life is improved*, and the body is able to function better.
Recovery®SA is available in Veterinary clinics to be taken alone or in combination with prescription or OTC medications.
Recovery®SA orally administered powder contains Nutricol® — a proprietary blending of plant nutrients recognized for their health-promoting action*, MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane), glucosamine (plant source), l-lysine, trimethylglycine (TMG), magnesium, vitamin C & vitamin E.
Nutricol® is a purified antioxidant complex containing epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), proanthocyanidins, theaflavin and resveratrol extracted from Vitis vinifera and Camellia sinensis.
Each 1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) contains: 75 mg Nutricol®, 500 mg glucosamine (plant source), 500 mg MSM, 250 mg l-lysine, 100 mg TMG, 135 mg vitamin C, 50 iu water-dispersible natural vitamin E, and 50 mg elemental magnesium.
Suggested use: 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per 20 pounds body-weight or as directed by your veterinarian.
When oxygen is utilized by the body, it produces a highly reactive “exhaust” that is damaging to the cells. The reactive molecules in this exhaust are commonly referred to as “free radicals” or reactive oxygen species (ROS). While some free radicals play a necessary role in the metabolic process, an overabundance of them is believed by many researchers to be a primary cause of cell destruction, inflammation,degenerative “dis-ease” and aging. (Among the diseases attributed to increased free radical action are heart disease, arthritis, liver disease, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetes, some gastrointestinal diseases, auto-immune disease and breathing conditions.)
The bio-active components of Nutricol® have been shown in numerous studies to curb the production of free radicals in animals and in humans. It is therefore proposed that regular use of the product will help reduce the rate of cellular damage attributed to free radical action.
