All of the Avemar/Immunovet/Shield4Pets supplements contain some fructose, since it is needed for the production mechanisms. It is a kind of catalyst which is an inhibitor substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction. In this product, the fructose is used by the company as a natural glue to contain the Immunovet into a tablet form.
All the trials and reports you read discuss products containing some fructose. On the other hand, fructose has a significantly lower glycemic index than glucose, it does not cause harm to dogs when included in this product;
MAGNESIUM STEARATE is a hardening agent to keep pills together.
CARBOXYMETHYLCELLULOSE SODIUM is commonly used as an FDA-approved disintegrant in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Disintegrants facilitate the breakup of tablets in the intestinal tract after oral administration. Without a disintegrant, tablets may not dissolve appropriately and may affect the amount of active ingredient absorbed, thereby decreasing effectiveness. It is virtually unabsorbed.
MALTODEXTRIN is produced by using enzymes or acids to break down starches like corn, potatoes and rice into smaller pieces. The end result is a white powder that is easily digested and delivers nearly 4 calories per gram. When it’s added to foods, maltodextrin thickens the product, prevents crystallization and helps bind ingredients together. It is used as part of the process of creating the fermented wheat germ.
Immunovet is a natural supplement derived from the endosperm of the wheat seed, the portion of the plant that does not contain gluten and is not linked to allergic responses. It is processed by way of fermentation and turned into a feeding material that enhances the health of animals.
