ProtectaCell Cancer Support Formula
Nutrient & Antioxidant Supplement For Cats & Dogs
ProtectaCell combines a high level of omega-3 fatty acids with antioxidants and amino acids for nutritional support in pets predisposed to, diagnosed with, or recovering from cancer or heart disease. You probably know that many breeds are
predisposed to certain diseases, such as arthritis in German Shepherds, skin
disease in Laboradors, cancer in Golden Retrievers or heart disease in Boxers.
Studies suggest that key supplemental nutrients may support the body's ability
to maintain good health.
Illness-induced loss of appetite is common in
pets. Decreased food intake contributes to impaired immune response, so
nutritional therapy is important. Because cancer changes the way the body
utilizes food, even if a pet is eating normally, they can still lose weight and
muscle mass. Animal studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may prevent or
reduce cancer-related weight loss, appetite loss, and muscle wasting,
collectively known as cachexia. Talk to your veterinarian about how you might
improve your pet's appetite without causing them additional stress.
Studies in humans and animals suggest a
relationship between aging and cancer. If you feel that your older pet may be at
risk of developing cancer or heart disease, ProtectaCell can be used as a daily
supplement in healthy older pets. While there is no guarantee of prevention, the
increased concentrations of fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants and
potential strengthening of the immune defenses may provide a less favorable
environment for cancer cells to thrive.

||1 tablet per day
||2 tablets per day
||3 tablets per day
||4 tablets per day
Tablets may be crumbled and sprinkled on food, or mixed
with a small amount of wet food to help with administration. The tablets
can be divided and given in the morning and evening.
It is recommended that use is discontinued at least one
day before, during and one day after chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
ProtectaCell - Supportive Supplement For Cancer
and Heart Patients
Inflammation and excessive oxidative damage can lead to genetic mutations in
susceptible cells. Micronutrients found in ProtectaCell have been shown to
reduce inflammation and oxidative damage, and are intended to preserve the
genetic integrity of cells, provide nourishment, and improve the immune system's
response to conventional cancer therapy. Nutritional therapy is most effective
when started early, before carbohydrate and protein stores are depleted, and may
support healthy metabolism even once the animal is in remission. Research has
shown that alterations in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fat do
not normalize after surgical elimination of the disease.
ProtectaCell is a combination of the following compounds.
Research suggests that the simultaneous activities of such compounds are more beneficial than that of each on its own.
Supplemental omega-3 fatty acids are important for several reasons. High
amounts of hormones and enzymes are produced during the transformation of normal
cells into cancer cells. As a result, fatty acids in the cell membranes are
replaced with cholesterol, which is resistant to attack by the immune system.
Omega-3 fatty acids can prevent and help resolve inflammation, reduce many
metabolic abnormalities, inhibit enzymes necessary for cancer to spread, and
reduce secretion of the cytokines TNF-? (tumor necrosis factor-?), IL-1?
(interleukin-1?), IL-1?, and IL-2, which promote tumor growth. Animal studies
also suggest that omega-3 fatty acids inhibit cachexia (weight loss), which is
significant because one way that cancer kills is by starving the pet.
In addition, Coenzyme Q-10 and Vitamin E are important fat-soluble
antioxidants for supporting the immune system and protecting against lipid peroxidation. Vitamin E may enhance the growth-inhibitory effect of some
treatments. Coenzyme Q-10 may reduce or prevent drug-induced toxicity in the
heart and prevent decreases in heart function, both of which may result from
some treatments, such as the drug doxorubicin.
The highly bioavailable extracts of grape seed, green tea, and silymarin (Silybum
marianum) found in ProtectaCell further contribute to protecting the heart as
well as other organs. Grape seed extract may interfere with cancer growth by
strengthening cell membranes against damaging enzymes and by contributing to the
increase of collagen in tissues surrounding cancer cells. Green tea and
silymarin have both been shown to interfere with tumor growth and studies
support each as adjunctive treatment to traditional therapy.
The amino acid L-arginine and amino acid derivative n-acetyl cysteine (NAC)
complete the synergistic blend of nutrients in ProtectaCell. L-arginine has been
found to be significantly reduced in the blood of cancer patients. It may
enhance immune function and help to decrease the growth and spread of tumors.
NAC is a free radical scavenger and also inhibits the cytokine IL-6 and reduces
Coenzyme Q10, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants have also been used as
nutritional support in dogs and cats with heart diseases, such as cardiomyopathy,
valvular heart disease and congestive heart failure. Therefore, in addition to
supporting the heart after exposure to certain treatments, ProtectaCell may also
be beneficial for pets with heart disease unrelated to cancer.
