Neuroprotection for successful brain aging
Senilife is a diet supplement with a neuroprotective effect (protection of neurones against degenerative processes) for successful brain aging, indicated for the pathophysiological brain aging of elderly animals (dogs and cats). Complementary to medical and behavioural treatment for recovery of the adaptive capacity in the event of behavioural, emotional and cognitive disorders associated with aging (e.g. confusional syndrome, involutional depression, dysthymia, hyper-aggressiveness, anxiety or phobic states).
- High efficacy in recovery of normal behavior
- Improvement of clinical signs within 7 days
- Safe for long-term use
- Convenient oral dosing capsules given orally or opened and sprinkled onto food
Daily dose (for a minimum of 3 months):
Cats: 1 capsule
Dogs: up to 15 kg, 1 capsule; 15-25 kg, 2 capsules; over 25 Kg, 3 capsules.
These doses can be increased at the veterinary surgeonís discretion.
The product can be administered throughout the animalís life.
Each capsule contains
Phosphatidylserine 50% (from GM-free soya), 50.0 mg
Ginkgo biloba extract titrated in ginkgosides (24%) 10 mg
Resveratrol 5.0 mg
Pyridoxine HCl (Vit. B6) 20.5 mg
d-alpha-tocopherol (natural Vit. E) 33.5 mg
Neuroprotective nutraceutical for a successful brain aging. 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 an orthomolecule (ie. a substance naturally present in the body) with a phospholipid nature which constitutes one of the main "building blocks" of the cell membranes. PS not only facilitates the neuronal activities that depend on the cell membrane (i.e. release of 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 and NGF receptors) and in macroscopic terms act on the typical signs of cognitive deficit, improving memory, orientation, learning and social behaviour.
Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) has been reported to be 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 its natural form (d-alpha-tocopherol), strengthens the antioxidant effects of Ginkgo biloba.
