Indicazioni

STIMULFOS

Pet Line è indicato in tutte le situazioni in cui è utile una stimolazione delle

capacità reattive dell’organismo: carenze in vitamine del gruppo B; convalescenze da

interventi chirurgici o malattie debilitanti; anemie; trattamenti vaccinali; stati di immu-

nodepressione conseguenti a terapie con antibiotici, antiparassitari e chemioterapici;

paresi e tetanie; stress di qualsiasi origine; gravidanze; nei soggetti giovani e negli

animali sportivi per favorire un adeguato sviluppo muscolare; negli animali anziani

per contrastare il decadimento muscolare tipico della terza età.

Proprietà

Lo STIMULFOS

Pet Line è formulato in compresse altamente appetibili grazie

all’azione aromatizzante di derivati proteici di origine animale di elevata qualità e

grazie all’impiego delle vitamine del gruppo B nella particolare forma protetta Rocoat

che garantisce elevata stabilità e appetibilità.

Nello STIMULFOS

Pet Line sono associate tre classi di componenti: betaglucani, fosfo-

lipidi e le vitamine del gruppo B (B1, B2, B6, B12, PP e Calcio Pantotenato).

Betaglucani

I betaglucani appartengono ad una classe di composti naturali biologicamente attivi,

noti come BRM (Biological Response Modifiers), in grado di influire positivamente

sull’efficienza del sistema immunitario dell’animale.

Di grande importanza per la loro attività sono l’origine (che può essere vegetale, bat-

terica, da lieviti o funghi, con grandi differenze qualitative e quantitative e di attività)

e le caratteristiche chimico-fisiche (solubilità, struttura, peso molecolare e numero di

ramificazioni).

I beta 1,3/1,6 glucani MacroGard

Biorigin sono polisaccaridi estratti dalla parete

cellulare del lievito Saccharomyces Cerevisiae con particolare tecnica che permette di

concentrarli mantenendo integra la loro attività biologica.

L’intestino è l’organo che ha la più vasta e spiccata attività immunitaria: in seguito

all’assunzione orale i betaglucani sono in grado di interagire con recettori specifici

presenti sulle cellule immunitarie della mucosa intestinale, determinando e modulando

la produzione di citochine, aumentando l’attività dei leucociti (attività fagocitaria) e

stimolando la produzione di anticorpi.

Fosfolipidi - Acido fosfatidico

Nello STIMULFOS

Pet Line è presente una fonte specifica di fosfolipidi ricchi in acido

fosfatidico, derivati dalla soia, caratterizzati da una elevata biodisponibilità e purezza

ed ottenuti con metodi naturali enzimatici senza utilizzo di metodi estrattivi chimici.

L’acido fosfatidico è il più semplice fosfolipide di membrana ed è anche l’intermedio

fondamentale per la sintesi di tutti gli altri fosfolipidi più specifici (fosfatidilcolina,

fosfatidilserina, fosfatidiletanolammina e fosfatidilinositolo), costituenti prioritari delle

membrane cellulari; come componente delle membrane l’acido fosfatidico rappresenta

l’1-4% del totale dei fosfolipidi cellulari.

Di rilevante importanza, e scoperta solo negli ultimi 10 anni, è anche l’attività dell’acido

fosfatidico come mediatore lipidico a livello cellulare; come tale media e regola diversi

fondamentali processi biochimici coinvolti nella vitalità, nella crescita e nella prolife-

razione cellulare, nonché nelle reazioni agli ormoni endogeni e agli stress organici e

fisiologici di ogni tipo.

L’apporto in Fosforo per compressa dovuto all’acido fosfatidico (0,25 mg/5 kg p.a.)

è trascurabile anche rispetto all’apporto dietetico minimo di una dieta specifica per

malattia renale cronica (200 mg/5 kg p.a.).

Vitamine del gruppo B

STIMULFOS

Pet Line contiene le vitamine del complesso B in concentrazioni elevate,

molto superiori ai fabbisogni minimi raccomandati dalla FEDIAF (Fédération européenne

de l’industrie des aliments pour animaux familiers); nello STIMULFOS

Pet Line tali vita-

mine sono associate per stimolare il metabolismo cellulare e compensare condizioni di

carenza o di aumentato fabbisogno in situazioni di stress metabolico, per mantenere

integri e efficienti tutti i sistemi coenzimatici che utilizzano tali vitamine.

La Vitamina B1 è in grado di agire favorevolmente sul sistema nervoso, sul miocardio,

nelle situazioni di stress e di intenso lavoro muscolare.

La Vitamina B2 interviene nei processi di ossidazione biologica favorendo il normale

trofismo cellulare.

La Vitamina B6 interviene nel metabolismo proteico soprattutto a livello del midollo osseo

e del sistema nervoso, del fegato e della cute.

La Vitamina B12 entra nella costituzione di coenzimi essenziali per la crescita e la

replicazione cellulare soprattutto per quanto concerne l’emopoiesi, il sistema nervoso

centrale e periferico ed il fegato.

La Vitamina PP ha un ruolo fondamentale in numerose reazioni di ossido-riduzione

essenziali per la respirazione tissutale.

L’Acido pantotenico è un cofattore nelle reazioni enzimatiche del metabolismo ossida-

tivo dei carboidrati, nella sintesi e nella degradazione degli acidi grassi, nella sintesi

degli steroli e degli ormoni steroidei. La sua carenza determina segni di degenerazione

neuromuscolare ed insufficienza corticosurrenale.

Nello STIMULFOS

Pet Line è infine presente la Vitamina E che grazie alle sue pro-

prietà antiossidanti protegge le membrane delle cellule dell’organismo sequestrando i

radicali liberi ed impedendone la propagazione.
