Our immunity blend combines a range of carefully curated natural ingredients to support the good health of your pet’s immune system. This formula focuses on providing antioxidants from a range of compounds such as polyphenols, flavonoids, phytochemicals, catechins, polysaccharides, beta-glucans, vitamins and minerals. Antioxidants play an important role in the health of the immune system by scavenging for cell damaging free radicals, thus fighting the development of oxidative stress on the body.
Green tea (decaffeinated) has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries and is the least processed type of tea, meaning its beneficial organic compounds are preserved. Decaf Green Tea powder is added specifically for its catechin content, which is a type of flavonoid. It is also the compound that gives green tea its light green colour. We use decaffeinated green tea so it is perfectly safe for dogs.

Marshmallow Root is a herb that has been historically used in natural medicine practice for its healing properties. This is largely due to its mucilage content from polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are a type of fibre with digestive benefits. These may translate to support for the immune system as they feed the good bacteria in the gut, where most of the immune cells live.
Spinach is a leafy green vegetable that is especially high in vitamins C and K, iron and folic acid. It is also one of the richest food sources of the antioxidant flavonoid quercetin.
