Thorne Research Bio-Cardio

Cardiovascular Support Supplement

Animal Health - Features CoQ10 - 120 Capsules

Thorne Research Bio-Cardio is a pet supplement that may support cardiac muscle function in small animals.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, one in 10 dogs suffers from poor cardiovascular health. Although some dogs have a genetic predisposition to cardiovascular problems, other factors such as nutritional deficiencies and obesity can certainly contribute.

A number of animal health products, including coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), vitamin E, L-carnitine, taurine, potassium, and magnesium have generated positive research results in helping to maintain a healthy heart. In addition, various botanical substances can provide cardiac support.

Bio-Cardio for small animals combines the unique antioxidant and cardio-protective qualities of CoQ10 with other cardio-protective ingredients and botanicals. Research on CoQ10 in animals demonstrates that it promotes the heart's oxygen utilization and helps maintain a healthy myocardium.

Small animal cardiac support.

  • Supports cardiac muscle function
  • Promotes oxygen utilization
  • Enhances physical stamina
  • Contains CoQ10, a potent antioxidant necessary for every cell

Certain amino acids support good cardiac function. For example, supplementation with taurine to support healthy cardiac function in cats is well established, because unlike humans and dogs, cats are unable to synthesize taurine. L-carnitine promotes cellular energy production in the mitochondria and supports muscle metabolism, including the heart muscle. Supplementation with L-carnitine has been shown to improve appetite and exercise tolerance in dogs.

Maintaining a healthy level of antioxidants to balance oxidative stress is essential for all tissues of the body, including the heart. Vitamin E provides essential antioxidant activity in fat-soluble tissues.

Magnesium and potassium are necessary for healthy cardiac contractility and for maintaining a healthy heart rhythm; magnesium supports vascular smooth muscle tone. Deficiencies of these two minerals often occur concurrently; therefore, it is essential to replete both of them.

Botanicals in Bio-Cardio include Crataegus laevigata (hawthorn extract) and Terminalia arjuna (arjuna extract), both of which contribute to healthy heart muscle functioning. Eleutherococcus senticosus (eleuthero root extract), an adaptogen, is added to support physical stamina.
