Nutrocept® is a polyceutical, a new class of nutraceuticals which combine a wide array of ingredients with overlapping beneficial effects. In addition to others, Nutrocept® offers a daily dietary dose of apoptogens, which help induce the genetically programmed process of apoptosis. This quiet form of programmed cell suicide supports healthy cell numbers while simultaneously clearing detrimental body cells. In contrast with the extremely high levels of dietary apoptogens in Apocaps®, Nutrocept® is the perfect daily supplement for the healthy dog. This clinical-grade supplement is only available with a prescription.

It is now generally recognized in human health that daily supplementation is necessary to help maintain health and aid in mitigating the effects of normal aging. There are several areas where additional support is needed for normal health: free radicals, cyclooxygenase activity, immunity, the effects of body condition, and dietary apoptogens.

The 21st century dog is facing new veterinary challenges that emerge from the effect of these health issues on body cells in many organs. Nutrocept® is first-in-class, in that it promotes health in many organs at the same time, and is the first multiorgan cytoprotectant.

Nutrocept® also contains Biovadex™, a patent-pending proprietary technology to deliver cytoprotective health benefits directly to the target organs. Nutrocept® benefits include clinical-grade support of normal mobility and joint health, skin support, gastro-intestinal health, body condition and metabolism support, and to help maintain normal brain and liver function in the face of aging.

This careful blend of apoptogens, vitamins, minerals, glucosamine, antioxidants, probiotics and prebiotics is manufactured in the USA from 100% human grade, all-natural ingredients in an FDA-licensed and inspected facility. Available only from veterinarians.
