ImmuShield is a blend of ingredients designed to support a pet'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 an effective, natural way to support a robust immune system in a pet allowing them to live a healthy life.
Beta glucans contained in ImmuShield are extracted from yeast cell walls. According to Dr. Tim’s, 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 a pet’s digestive system. For instance, a healthy gut improves digestion and absorption of nutrients. And, since about 70 percent 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 a pet’s body. 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.
ImmuShield is ideal for dogs in training or competition, or dogs with health conditions or digestive upsets. ImmuShield comes in a 6.6 pound pail with measuring scoops.
Ingredients include: pasteurized spray dried whole eggs, yeast culture dehydrated, betaine, yeast extract, enterococcus faecium fermentation product, lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product and lactobacillus casei fermentation product.
ImmuShield can be top dressed over food or fed by itself. Sprinkle ImmuShield over a pet's food or mix with water to make a light gravy. Each 5 grams of ImmuShield supplies 2 grams of egg powder and 1 billion colony-forming units of probiotics. The enclosed scoop holds 100 grams of product. One level teaspoon of product would contain 3 grams of product if the scoop is lost. This amount can be given once a day or divided into two servings.
