Dog Jocks | Lexelium - Nursing And Lactation Supplement
This product is intended for nursing dogs/cats and will help enrich the quality of the milk as well as its quantity.
Mildly Hydrolyzed Milk - When mothers consume cow’s milk, they have greater amounts of secretory IgA (SIgA) in their breast milk. SIgA is a type of antibody that lines the infant’s intestinal tract to form a barrier capable of neutralizing threats. SIgA helps prevent pathogens from coming through while simultaneously allowing nutrients to pass. Milk also helps fortify the immune system in young kittens and pups.
Calcium Citrate - Calcium citrate, more colloquially known as Vitamin C, is a normal component of animal milk and is a key milk antioxidant. This makes it an effective prophylactic. Infants of supplemented mothers tend to have increased biochemical markers of antioxidant activity in their urine.
Steamed Bone Meal - Bone meal provides an excellent supplementary source of calcium/phosphorus, trace minerals that are vital for proper development of young kittens and puppies.
Milk Thistle Extract - Milk Thistle contains silymarin, which offers great potential in offering a degree of protection from toxic substances. It also strengthens lactations.
Hydrolyzed Beef Liver Extract - Similar to regular cow milk, this ingredient helps with lowering long-term allergies and acts as a strong prophylactic.
Yeast Extract - Yeast is recommended to increase milk production because it's full of B vitamins, protein, iron and minerals.
Zinc Orotate - Normal supply of zinc to newborns via milk is essential for normal development. Zinc is an essential component of at least 300 enzymes in breastmilk. It also plays a role in metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. Further, it is essential for cell differentiation and body growth.
Selenium Protein Complex - Selenium is another trace mineral that has a big role in milk secretion, and making sure that enough of it is present in the mother is key to large milk quantities. It is also an essential trace element necessary for the functioning of the glutathione-peroxidase enzyme system that protects cellular structures from oxidative damage.
Vitamin D3 - Vitamin D is needed to support healthy bone development and to prevent weak or deformed bones. Breast milk alone does not provide infants with an adequate amount of vitamin D, hence why supplementation is needed.
Vitamin B12 - Sufficient levels of vitamin B, and B12 in particular, help to elevate lactation levels. Poor health outcomes in infants with vitamin B12 deficiency include anemia, abnormal skin and hair development, convulsions, failure to thrive, and mental development delay.
Beta Carotene - Beta Carotene is the precursor to Vitamin A, which is essential for newborns. Maternal vitamin A requirements are increased during lactation. Beta-carotene is a normal component of colostrum and mature milk, where it contributes to antioxidant defenses in the neonate.
Vitamin-Enriched Wheat - A gentle but effective bio-stimulator; contains an optimal formulation of fibers, minerals, and vitamins such as phosphorus, zinc, iron, potassium, B-vitamins, and folate.
