FOR PETS

Evencit® p.f. in Pets

Evencit® p.f. is a natural origin source of metabolic antioxidants (Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids and Polyphenols) obtained from four types of ecologic growing citrus fruits.
It is specially designed to be used in petfoods: dogs, cats, horses, birds and fishes to take the advantage of its beneficial effects to improve the animal quality of life by natural and secure way.

Evencit® p.f. is a exclusive product developed and distributed within the European Union by PROBENA, S.L.

Presentation, 20 Kg bags.

Introduction

The domestic animal life expectance has increases sensitively in the last years, and consequently has increases the age-related pathologies. Most of these pathologies are chronic and the symptomatic advance slowly on the time.

The ageing is not a disease, but a lost of the adaptation capacity by a lack of the functional reserve of the different organs and systems.

In most chronic diseases, the expectance and quality life depends of early diagnoses, which will permits to introduce the medical and dietetic treatments on time.

The oxidative stress, in the last years, has become more and more important, and it has been related with the pathogen of big number of chronic pathologies: cancer, Parkinson, Alzheimer, allergy, inflammatory diseases, cataract, macular degeneration, geriatric syndrome, renal diseases, liver diseases…

The research in these topics in the pets is very short; nevertheless the diseases related with oxidative stress are common for the most of mammals.

The evidences that nutritional antioxidants could prevent diseases, have become an important hypothesis; The antioxidants use in the prevention and control of chronic diseases in pets could be the way to delay the consequences of the ageing has, and due the oxidative daily process, one additional supplement of this type of products could improve the natural defence mechanism against the oxidative stress.

Bioflavonoids are considered non-nutrients, however, by 1936 Szent-Gyürgyi, had shown that two flavonoids derived from citrus fruits decreased capillary fragility and permeability in humans. Flavonoids were thus called vitamin P (from permeability) and also vitamin C2, because it was found that some flavonoids had vitamin C spared activities.

Flavonoids are formed in plants and participate in the light-dependent phase of photosynthesis during which they catalyse electron transport. They are synthesised from the aromatic amino acids, phenylalanine and tyrosine, together with acetate units. The animal metabolism cannot produce flavonoids, and they must be introduced in the diet.

The biological, pharmacological, and medicinal properties of the flavonoids have been extensively reviewed. Flavonoids and other plant phenolics are reported, in addition to their free radical scavenging activity, to have multiple biological activities including vasodilatory, anticarcinogenic, antiinflammatory, antibacterial, immune-stimulating, antiallergenic, antiviral, and estrogenic effects, as well as being inhibitors of phospholipase A2, cyclooxygenase, and liposygenase, glutathione reductase, and xanthine oxidase.

Ascorbic acid is a universal component of plant cells. Ascorbic acid and flavonoids coexist in many plants, and thus the two may be consumed together in the diet. A large body of literature has accumulated concerning the interactions of flavonoids with ascorbic acid in biological systems. Several flavonoids serve as antioxidants for ascorbic acid.

There is synergistic interaction between vitamin E and vitamin C with respect to peroxidation of membrane phospholipids. An analogous situation could exist with flavonoid-flavonoid or flavonoid-vitamin interactions.

There are several efficacy trials available for who is interested, ask us for it.
