ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant which helps to raise glutathione levels in our cells, which in turn benefits cellular energy, healthy blood sugar levels, and liver inflammation.
However, the primary reason we offer ALA is for its benefits in protecting spinal and brain function. Your pet should be on ALA if they...
- have a spinal disease, from arthritis to disc disease to degenerative myelopathy
- have symptoms suggesting Canine Senility or Cognitive disorder
Our prescription strength ALA supplement contains only the R enantiomer, which is the active form found naturally in the bodies of us humans and our pets. This is a little more expensive, but proven much more effective than the S or S/R mixes on the market.
The correct dose of ALA for pets is 5 mg per kg body weight per day.
Our capsules contain 80 mg of r-ALA. Dosing is as follows:
- One capsule per day with food for dogs 30-60 lb
- One capsule twice daily with food for dogs over 60 lbs
Qty 60 per bottle
