What are Potential Triggers for Chronic Inflammation in Pets?
An important potential trigger for chronic inflammation is excess weight. In the past, fat was thought to be an inert tissue that didn’t have any specific biological significance other than to provide insulation and quick energy. New research suggests that fat plays a larger role than once believed. In fact, fat is now considered to be an active part of the endocrine system and has direct influence over the release and regulation of hormones.Chronic inflammation is a sign your pet’s immune system is out of control. In chronic inflammation there is a faulty distress signal causing the body to continue to release cytokines and the immune system to send out white blood cells unnecessarily. In the absence of any actual pathogens, the white blood cells will start to attack healthy tissue, which then prompts the release of more cytokines. And the cycle continues, wreaking havoc on healthy cells and causing widespread damage to tissue.
What is Purified Omega 7?
TRIVONAL® Omega 7 quality line of products contain key ingredients including Provinal® Purified Omega 7 fatty acids which sets the standard for purity — undergoing a unique process to remove saturated fatty acids and express high levels of palmitoleic acid (C16:1n7), which has been shown to help maintain normal C - reactive protein (CRP) levels.Other Omega 7 formulations on the market may contain upwards of 30% of palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid that has been shown to have negative health effects.
What's the recommended dosage?
For humans Dr. Michael Roizen recommends 420mg per day. But 210mg has been used in a recent double - blind placebo controlled study, a daily intake of 210mg of Omega 7 was better than placebo at managing cholesterol, triglycerides, and a healthy response to inflammation. TRIVONAL® OMEGA 7 is formulated specifically for dogs and offered in a great tasting soft chew dog’s love.
What is an Omega 7 fatty acid, I've only heard about the Omega 3's?
Omega 7 is a fatty acid with a slightly different chemical structure than the Omega 3’s. The number behind the Omega word relates to where the double bond exists within the structure of the compound. Omega 7 is also a naturally - occurring fatty acid which exists in a variety of substances that exist in the food chain.
What is different about Omega 7 compared to other fatty acids?
Interestingly, based upon extensive scientific research from many well - respected groups around the world, Omega 7 actually has more extensive pharmacologic actions than the Omega 3’s. Virtually all of this research is published in leading scientific journals. Actions that have been reported to be attributed to Omega 7 include: improvements in lipid profiles, anti - inflammatory actions, improved insulin sensitivity & glucose metabolism, and even prevention of cholesterol and beta - amyloid deposition in both animal models and humans.
What aspects of one's lipid profile are shown to be affected by Omega 7?
As previously stated, Omega 7 has been documented to have a broader range of activity than the Omega 3’s. In the area of blood lipids, Omega 7 has been shown in animals and humans to have the following positive actions: raises HDL (“good cholesterol”) without any flushing side effects, lowers LDL (“bad cholesterol”) and also lowers triglycerides. The Omega 3’s are effective at lowering bad cholesterol, but have minimal effect on HDL. Thus, with Omega 7, 1 gets a broader action with a single fatty acid. All fatty acids are definitely not the same.
Can Omega 7 be taken in conjunction with statins?
