CALMING FOR DOGS
Help Fido mellow out! Pet Natural's CALMING formula is designed to support pets exposed to increased environmental stressors and decrease destructive behavior. CALMING offers stress reduction support ingredients not found in other calming formulas. Whether its thunderstorms or traveling, we've combined ingredients such as colostrum calming complex, L-theanine and thiamine to address the stress and help your dog relax.
CALMING features L-theanine, an amino acid known for its relaxing effects in the brain. L-theanine has been shown to support increased concentration and focus while reducing irritability.
The way it works
L-theanine directly supports production of alpha brain waves. Production of alpha brain waves creates a deep state of relaxation while maintaining mental alertness without drowsiness. L-theanine also helps the body to produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA and tryptophan. Dopamine is an organic chemical released in the brain to create feelings of pleasure and regulate mood, and GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid necessary for proper brain function. As the brain’s natural relaxer, GABA helps control anxiousness, and acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter keeping nerve cells from becoming over-active. By quieting nerves, it helps reduce muscle tension and supports proper sleep patterns. Because L-theanine helps produce so many neurotransmitters, it is extremely beneficial in regulating mood and curbing destructive behavior.
Benefits of colostrum
Another key feature of CALMING is its calming colostrum complex. Colostrum contains compounds not found in regular milk, such as growth factors and cytokines. Colostrum is very rich in proteins, vitamin A and sodium chloride.
The biggest benefit for animals ingesting bovine (cow) colostrum is the bioactive peptides in colostrum have natural relaxing properties that work to reduce stress and promote a sense of calm. These bioactive proteins have been found to support cognitive functioning and support stress reduction.
Additionally, colostrum offers immune support. It contains high levels of biologically active proteins called immunoglobulins, or antibodies. Antibodies are made by the body's immune system in response to bacteria or viruses and help destroy foreign matter. By ingesting colostrum, dogs will be better supported for fighting infection and staying active and healthy.
Fun Shaped Chews
No stress formula
CALMING does not contain any worrisome herbal ingredients such as kava kava, valerian, St. John’s wort or L-tryptophan, and better still, its ingredients do not cause side effects, addiction, drowsiness or impaired motor skills. CALMING helps alleviate stress related behavior problems without affecting your animal’s personality or energy levels.
With all the health benefits, the unbeatable taste is the icing on the cake. CALMING is available in highly palatable chicken liver-flavored chews.
Whether at the state fair surrounded by temptations or you have a chronically hyper rocker pup, CALMING can be taken during times of increased stress, or every day to curb anxious behavior.
