Super Oxy Green Antioxidant for dogs is a synergistic blend of ingredients specially formulated with powerful sources of all natural antioxidants, including superoxide dismutase, wheatgrass juice powder and Vitamin E, to help protect your dog against the damaging effects of harmful free radicals that are formed during the normal metabolic process. Free radicals are substances which have highly reactive unpaired electrons that can cause oxidative damage, which may be a primary cause of cell destruction, inflammation, aging and degenerative conditions.
Super Oxy Green is a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants for dogs that work together to provide protection by naturally detoxifying and cleansing the system. Superoxide dismutase is one of the most important and effective antioxidants in the body and is the first line of defense against free radicals that damage cells, wheatgrass concentrate is a highly concentrated source of vitamins and minerals, garlic is known and used for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties, and Vitamin E works with selenium to keep the immune system functioning properly.
Super Oxy Green is made with fresh wheatgrass which is carefully selected in the early spring when it is at its nutritional peak. The wheatgrass is immediately harvested, juiced and cold pressed to seal in the rich nutrients.
Oxidation is a normal metabolic process that allows dogs to convert carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy. The formation of free radicals, compounds that have the potential to cause irreparable cell damage, is one unavoidable result of this process. Stress, environmental influences and exercise can accelerate this process, which can deplete natural stores of antioxidants in the body, making it necessary to supplement with antioxidants.

Before wheat grows into a full, grain-producing plant, it has grass-like sprouts called wheatgrass. Along with Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), significant amounts of iron, amino acids, calcium, magnesium, chlorophyll and vitamins A, C and E are found in wheatgrass. Additionally, wheat grass may have antimicrobial benefits, as the chlorophyll in wheat grass is a potent germicidal substance that can help keep certain germs ineffective and prevent them from spreading.
Superoxide dismutase, also called SOD, is one of the most important and effective antioxidants in the body and is the first line of defense against free radicals that can damage cells. SOD is a naturally-occurring enzyme found within cells and is important for the facilitation of certain chemical reactions. SOD also helps the body break down potentially damaging oxygen molecules within cells, giving it natural antioxidant properties and protecting the body from oxidative stress and tissue damage.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes the free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage. Studies show that Vitamin E promotes DNA repair and immune activity, and may prevent or delay some diseases. Vitamin E also boosts the body’s immune system ability to fight off infectious diseases and is important for red blood cell formation.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract contains oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs), which have long been recognized as powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals – harmful compounds in the body that cause cellular damage. Grape seed extract also contains Vitamin E, flavonoids and linoleic acid. Resveratrol is another of grape seed extract compounds which is related to OPCs.
Commonly called a “superfood”, it is widely believed that garlic has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties. Garlic contains many active components, including potent oil with sulphur-containing compounds (allicin, alliin, and ajoene), enzymes (allinase, peroxidase and myrosinase), glucokinins, B group vitamins, vitamin C and flavonoids, citral, geraniol, linalool, aphellandrene and B phellandrene. Garlic also contains a wide range of trace minerals, which include copper, iron, zinc, magnesium, germanium, and selenium. The key therapeutic ingredient in garlic is alliin. Alliin is an odorless sulfur-containing chemical derived from the amino acid cysteine. Allicin is formed when alliin, a sulfur-containing amino acid, comes into contact with the enzyme alliinase when raw garlic is chopped, crushed, or chewed. Allicin is what gives garlic its antibiotic properties and is responsible for its distinct odor.
Selenium is an essential mineral found in small amounts in the body. It works as an antioxidant, especially when combined with vitamin E. Antioxidants like selenium help fight damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Selenium additionally plays a role in thyroid function and the immune system needs selenium to work properly. Many studies suggest that the body needs selenium in order for the immune system to work properly. Selenium, along with other minerals, can help build up white blood cells, which boosts the body’s ability to fight illness and infection.
