2033 Senilife® 30 single-dose skittle capsules 25.50
Indications

Senilife™ is an international registered Trade Mark of Innovet Italia

Senilife® supports brain function in elderly dogs and cats.The neuroprotective effect (protection of neurones against degenerative processes) promotes a successful brain aging.

Dosage and directions for use

Open the capsule and squeeze the contents into the animal’s mouth, or mix them with the
food ration. Alternatively, the capsules can be swallowed whole.

Daily dose (for a minimum of 3 months):
Cats: 1 capsule
Dogs
: up to 15 kg b.w., 1 capsule; 15-25 kg b.w., 2 capsules; over 25 Kg b.w., 3 capsules.

These doses can be increased at the veterinary surgeon’s discretion.
The product can be administered throughout the animal’s life.

Properties

Thanks to its natural active constituents, the product is particularly suitable for optimizing pathophysiological brain aging, and for helping the recovery of the adaptive capacity in older subjects with behavioural, emotional and cognitive disorders associated with aging.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a naturally occurring phospholipid with nootropic properties (from the Greek words: noos = mind and tropein = to bend or turn), able to stimulate brain functions, particularly cognitive processes. PS not only facilitates the neuronal activities that depend on the cell membrane (i.e. release of synaptic secretory vesicles) but can also restore the correct levels of the neurotransmitters (e.g. acetylcholine and dopamine), normalize the density of neuronal receptors (e.g. muscarinic receptors). In macroscopic terms, PS acts on the typical signs of cognitive deficit, improving memory, orientation, learning and social behaviour.

Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is a coenzyme for the synthesis of different neurotransmitters (i.e. serotonin), thereby supporting PS in normalizing neurotransmitters levels and synaptic transmission.

The active components of Ginkgo biloba extract (flavonols, ginkgolides and bilobalides) protect brain cells (neurones and astrocytes) by exerting antioxidant and cerebrovascular effects. They are further involved in maintaining brain metabolism and glucose uptake.

Resveratrol - a polyphenolic compound found in grapes - has been shown to protect neurons against toxicity of free radicals and beta-amyloid peptides. In an animal model of neurodegeneration it was able to prevent spatial memory deficits. Recent evidence suggests resveratrol to be a therapeutic candidate in the management of age-related dementia.

Vitamin E, which is contained in Senilife® in its natural form (d-alpha-tocopherol), strengthens the antioxidant effects of Ginkgo biloba.
