SPECTRUM Derm26, a specially formulated complete and balanced ultra-premium dog food to meet the nutritional requirements of dogs with sensitive skin aged from 10 months to 8 years.
|HEALTHY SKIN and HAIR GROWTH: The SQX concept in SPECTRUM Derm26 is boosted by Aloe vera to ensure the healthy skin and soft coat of your dog.|
|CELL PROTECTION: Skin sensitive dogs are prone to skin irritation and pruritus inherent to inflammation and an increased production of free radicals. The titrated plant extracts present in SPECTRUM Derm26 contribute to limit the consequences of oxidative stress by limiting the production of toxic end metabolites.|
|SHINY COAT: Marine Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA) in SPECTRUM Derm26 limit skin irritation and improve sebum composition. The fatty acids contribute to maintaining integrity, composition and function of the epidermal lipid barrier. An intact lipid barrier limits water loss and avoids skin dehydration.|
|DIGESTIVE SECURITY: XOS in SPECTRUM Derm26 neutralise potential pathogenic bacteria and contribute to the stabilisation of the beneficial intestinal flora. This strengthens indirectly protein metabolism and production of volatile fatty acids, energy source for the intestinal cells. A stabilised intestinal flora combined with a local increased energy production create optimal conditions for food efficiency.|
|DERM SECURE: Stabilised Aloe vera extract is rich in glucomannans. These long chain sugars contribute to the skin barrier function by enhancing collagen synthesis. Collagen is the major protein of the connective tissue. Aloe vera in SPECTRUM Derm26 not only increases collagen content but changes as well the collagen composition (more type III) and the degree of collagen cross linking. This ensures optimal skin elasticity.|
SYNOX 3D: a blend of natural, standardised GMO free – titrated plant extracts (Rosemary, grape seed, curcuma, citrus and cloves) clinical proven in cats to counter free radicals induced by oxidative cell damage.
Free radicals are essential for life. However, ageing is linked to an increased production of free radicals and a decreased ability to counter their negative effects on health and wellbeing.
SYNOX 3D limits the production of malondialdehyde, one of the main toxic metabolites of oxidative stress, protecting cell membrane, mitochondria and genetic material of each individual cell. The unique composition of SYNOX 3D is the result of a screening process on 134 plant extracts, combined with trials in laboratory conditions and a successful clinical trial run in pets. Potential health benefits include increased resistance against oxidative stress, improved life-span and immune stimulation.
Qrill: Antarctic qrill is a breakthrough ingredient providing a bioavailable matrix of proteins, omega-3 phospholipids and astaxanthin. Qrill or Euphausia superba phospholipids have been clinically proven to promote brain development, skin health, active joints and body composition.
Xylo-oligsaccharides (XOS): super probiotics obtained by hydrolysis of corn cobs. XOS in the diet resists salivary, gastric and pancreatic enzymes.
Ingredients: Dehydrated fish protein, brown rice, maize, chicken oil, wheat, dried antarctic qrill (euphauisa superba) (4%), hydrolysed chicken liver, whey powder, carob flour, brewer’s yeast, salt, aloe vera, xylo-oligosaccharide (400 ppm), rosmarinus sp. – curcuma sp. – vitis sp. – citrus sp. – eugenia sp. (300 ppm).
Additives: Vitamin A (E-672): 18000 IU/kg, Vitamin D3 (E-671): 1500 IU/kg, Vitamin E (3A700): 150 mg/kg, Vitamin C (E301): 200 mg/kg, Iron (E1): 150 mg/kg, Iodine (E2): 1.5 mg/kg, Copper (E4): 15 mg/kg, Manganese (E5): 70 mg/kg, Zinc (E6): 180 mg/kg, Selenium (E8): 0.3 mg/kg, Preservatives – Antioxidants.
