Success Story: Willow the Catahoula Mix & Asta Zan 14 K9
Willow, our 14 year old catahoula mix, has had a noticeable cyst like bubble behind her ear for the past 5 years. Several vets have said it was nothing to worry about so we left it alone. The hair that was growing on it had started turning white and thinning. However, after the first jar of Asta Zan 14 K9 it was about half the size and after the second jar it was completely gone! That was proof enough for me.” – Angela
Asta Zan 14™ is a synergistic blend of antioxidants and other ingredients to support health and longevity. Whether your dog is a sporting dog with high aerobic energy metabolism, an older dog facing the aging process, or a younger active dog, antioxidants help keep oxidative stress at a minimum.
Free radicals are the naturally occurring consequence of using oxygen to generate energy. Oxygen is essential for aerobic metabolism. As endurance and aerobic metabolism increases, so do oxygen free radicals. If the free radicals are left unchecked, they can attack and damage cells and DNA. Increased levels of free radicals are present in environmental pollutants, as well as from the reactions of engineered compounds in processed foods. Free radical production can also be caused by stress, as well as physical exercise.
Antioxidants like those found in Asta Zan 14 K9 “mop up” those free radicals, and are essential to health and longevity. Performance dogs, and sporting dogs can have greater antioxidant needs due to aerobic energy metabolism. Increased antioxidants can help endurance, stamina, as well as recovery. Older dogs have a higher antioxidant need because of the aging process. Dogs facing health issues like arthritis, gastric inflammation, chronic diseases, diabetes, and cancer also have a greater antioxidant requirement because the inflammation and the free radicals are already in the oxidative stress cycle. Young dogs can benefit from antioxidant support to maintain protective inflammation and reduce potential chronic inflammation.
