Canine Hemp Oil Complex™ from Standard Process is a unique formulation of ingredients, combined to provide a 3-in-1 benefit for a dog’s whole body – supporting the endocannabinoid system, inflammation response resolution pathways, and endogenous anti-oxidant pathways.
- Supports the endocannabinoid system*
- Supports the body’s natural inflammatory response function*
- Ingredients that provide antioxidant activity*
- Non-genetically engineered hemp
- Combination of natural omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA, DPA and EPA
- Calamari oil certified sustainable from the independent nonprofit group Friend of the Sea®
Canine Hemp Oil Complex™ is a combination of well-balanced polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs, omega-3 oil) delivering essential fatty acids needed for the formation of specialized lipid mediators for a healthy immune response. Hemp oil and omega-3 oil may support the resolution phase of the inflammatory process by providing PUFAs which are known to be precursors to endocannabinoids. Additionally, Brassica (TrueBroc®) is an important phytonutrient providing antioxidant support by activating the Nrf2/ARE pathways.
Why support a dog’s endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
The ECS is present throughout the body and appears to be an important factor in multiple physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms in all mammals.1
Endocannabinoids are derivatives of PUFAs, and are critical in supporting the ECS. Additionally, supplementation of hemp-oil derived fatty acids support key inflammatory mediators involved in the resolution phase of a healthy inflammation process.2,3 A well-balanced ECS encourages favorable conditions in the body system, impacting the body’s ability to manage metabolic stress4 and may support overall health and well-being. 5
Canine Hemp Oil Complex™ consists of calamari oil, dimagnesium malate, hemp oil (stalk and seed) TrueBroc®, and broccoli.
