ProVitae Defense ® is a patent-pending blend of antioxidants to promote the longevity and better health of your pet. The antioxidants in ProVitae are found in natural fruit extracts sourced primarily from blueberries, strawberries, cherries and pomegranates. Antioxidants, especially those in ProVitae Defense ®, have been gaining attention for their reported anti-aging and disease-fighting powers from animal and laboratory studies.
Antioxidants have been shown to counteract cellular damage caused from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is triggered by free radicals, which are formed during exercise and digestion as well as from environment sources such as cigarette smoke, air pollution and sunlight. Oxidative stress is thought to play a role in multiple diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Some scientists believe that oxidative stress also plays a pivotal role in the aging process.
In the United States, about 50% of household pets (dogs & cats) will develop cancer by age 10. We created ProVitae Defense ® in order the change this paradigm. At Huggibles, we believe that you should have the power to improve the longevity and overall health of your pet.
