Benefits of Astaxanthin in Horses & Dogs

Studies have shown that animal owners live happier, healthier lives. And because our companion animals bring us joy and relieve stress, we want to return the favor and provide them great care. That’s why BioZyme® works diligently to research the best ingredients and cutting-edge technologies for its products and has included astaxanthin in select joint health products for our companions.

Astaxanthin is a red carotenoid that is known as nature’s most powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are important for our animals as they help reduce free radical damage that can be created by exercise. Astaxanthin is a key ingredient found in Hyaluronex® Joint and Trixsyn® Canine Performance, both developed to support joint, hip and cartilage health. The other key ingredient found in these liquid, oral products is multi-patented MHB3®.

“MHB3 Hyaluronan is the first step to supporting joint health. To take it a step further and support normal recovery from exercise, soft tissue and a normal inflammatory response we also have included astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is known as one of nature’s strongest antioxidants. It is not only more stable than most other antioxidants, but also 6,000 times stronger in its capacity to reduce free radicals than vitamin C, another common antioxidant. So, it is quite powerful and gives good results,” said LynseyWhitacre, Ph.D., BioZyme Companion Animal Business Development Manager & Senior Manager of New Product Development.

In fact, research trials have shown that astaxanthin helps support normal recovery from exercise and a normal inflammatory response. Because of these responses, its popularity is increasing. Paired with MHB3 Hyaluronan, it helps achieve sustainable soundness and comfort for dogs and horses, alike.
