Everyday our pets are exposed to the demands of the environment. Pollution, radiation, food preservatives and normal daily stress lead to free radical activity in the body. These free radical molecules come into contact with normal healthy cells and cause oxidative damage. Current scientific research has revealed that specific potent antioxidants can enhance the natural antioxidant mechanisms existing in the body. Based on the latest research, we have developed a potent broad spectrum antioxidant formula which aids in combating free radical damage at the cellular level. For the best protection against the action of free radicals in the body, consider Davids ACE Antioxidant Capsules.

This formula is designed to supply powerful antioxidant activity to quench free radicals and prevent the consequential damage. This is accomplished by relying on nutrients known to possess powerful antioxidant properties.

This carotenoid is the plant pigment that gives carrots their characteristic orange colour. It's antioxidant, which promotes immune, skin and cardiac health.

Unlike Vitamin A, beta-carotene is an effective antioxidant and therefore has functions in the body independent of its provitamin A activity. Beta-carotene is one the most potent singlet oxygen quenchers.

Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid. This water-soluble substance is considered one of the most important antioxidants in extracellular fluids. This immune-supportive nutrient is considered the most important antioxidant for extra-cellular (outside of cells) activity. Vitamin C also helps "recycle" Vitamin E, which increases vitamin E's antioxidant activity.

Calcium has some very important life-supporting functions; the best known is the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. Our pets need for calcium is important lifelong to keep their bones healthy.

Bones are not only the most basic physical support structure, they are the main reservoir for calcium. Most minerals are in a state of dynamic activity and function, and even the calcium in bones is being added to and removed depending on the balance in the body. The bones provide calcium to the blood and other tissues when our pets are not getting sufficient amounts from their diet. This bone calcium then becomes responsible for many other equally important functions; for example, in the transmission of nerve impulses, maintenance of muscle tone, hormonal secretion regulation, muscle contraction, blood clotting and activation of some enzymes.

Co Enzymes Q10 is a fat-soluble, super-antioxidant supplement whose actions in the body and chemical structure resemble those of Vitamin E and Vitamin K.

This coenzyme, essential in energy production at the cellular level and integral in many key metabolic processes, has also been shown to offer extensive antioxidant effects. It is particularly supportive of the heart, liver and circulatory system.

As an antioxidant, it controls the movement of electrons, limiting the production of dangerous free radicals, which are molecules lacking one electron in what should be a pair. Co Q10 has also been shown to be Vitamin E sparing, and is able to enhance the recycling of Vitamin E.

Bioflavonoids are proven to be powerful antioxidants. The term bioflavonoid refers to a large family of phyto-chemicals found throughout the plant world. Bioflavonoids are sometimes referred to as vitamin P and are known to complement and enhance the effectiveness of vitamin C. Hesperidin and Rutin are the main bioflavonoids found in citrus fruits.

Antioxidant compounds such as Vitamin E readily react with free radicals. Thus, if the blood concentration of an antioxidant is high then the free radicals are more likely to be neutralised by coming into contact with and reacting with the antioxidant.

Researchers have concluded that supplementation with such antioxidant nutrients as Vitamin E is an effective method of improving the immune response system.

Antioxidant nutrients may have a major role in the prevention of several diseases. These include cardiovascular disease, some forms of cancer and several other disorders, many of which age related.

Prevention of these changes depends on a range of antioxidants, including vitamin E, which work together in concert to keep the disease-promoting effect of free radicals in check.

Vitamin A is a potent antioxidant. It is a particularly efficient scavenger of the free radicals generated by chemical fumes and urban air pollution.

Research has shown that the need for vitamin A increases well above the recommended daily allowance when the body is stressed and that diets rich in vitamin A protect against many kinds of health disorders.

ZINC Zinc is an essential mineral that is involved in over 200 different enzymatic reactions in the body, ranging from the synthesis of proteins and collagen, to the production of cellular energy. This vital metal helps to support immune system and is vital for the body to manufacture the antioxidant enzyme SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD), a large molecule that serves as the main line of defence against free radical damage.

This mineral is a trace element and is not readily available from foods in large quantities. It can enhance the functions of Vitamin E to some extent and is essential to the body's manufacture of glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme that disarms free radicals.

A potent antioxidant, selenium protects cells and tissues from damage wrought by free radicals. Research has shown that Selenium deficiency is particularly correlated to the incidence of cancer and protects DNA from Free radical damage. Because its antioxidant effects complement those of vitamin E, the two are said to potentiate, or reinforce, each other.

As an antioxidant, selenium may help to boost the immune system by delaying the onset of degenerative disease: not the least which is the aging process itself.

Milk Thistle is best known for its ability to improve liver health and function. Milk Thistle contains antioxidants, but milk thistle excels at increasing the liver's ability to produce glutathione peroxidase one of the body's most powerful antioxidants.

The isoflavonoids found in milk thistle, collectively known as "silymarin" have been found to have the ability to capture free radicals and have a positive effect on a number of disease conditions caused by oxygen free radicals. The antioxidant activity of silymarin is only one of its major nutritional effects.

Hawthorn is perhaps one of the best cardiotonics known today. It is probably the most recognised herb for positively affecting the heart. It is also used in this formula for its antioxidant properties and calming effect on the central nervous system. This may help when stress or anxiety causes disease conditions.

Lycopene, an antioxidant pigment that gives tomatoes, guava, and pink grapefruit their characteristic red colour, is a member of the carotenoid family that includes beta-carotene. It acts as an impressive antioxidant and can help prevent the damaging effects of oxidants on DNA, thereby inhibiting the formation of tumours. Besides the mounting evidence that lycopene is a particularly strong antioxidant carotenoid, published studies have also shown that lycopene enhances resistance to bacterial infections and certain tumours.

Besides the mounting evidence that lycopene is a particularly strong antioxidant carotenoid, published studies have also shown that lycopene enhances resistance to bacterial infections and certain tumours. A number of studies have linked lycopene to a reduced risk of cancer, particularly in the male and female reproductive organs.

As an overall antioxidant, Lutein is a key component with the other antioxidants in the mechanism to prevent the deleterious effects of oxidation processes and free radicals in the body. Lutein has been found to have specific applications for the eye, in maintaining optimum eye health whilst preventing macular degeneration. Lutein also is the main carotenoid antioxidant identified with the lens of the eye and may play a role in the prevention of cataracts.

Another Botanical with diverse pharmalogical effects that has been shown to have antioxidant activity is ginkgo biloba.

The antioxidant properties of ginkgo flavonoids have been found to break the chain of free radical formation at a 'high level' - that is at the beginning of the chemical reaction, as opposed to after the formation when introduction of the free radical into various body processes has already occurred.

Ginkgo Biloba has the potential to offset disease conditions related to excessive free radical formation, including conditions associated with accelerated aging and tissues.

The active antioxidant properties of this seed have special value to connective tissue throughout the body and have a similar potency value to green tea.

Grape Seed Extract is an important source of one of nature's most potent antioxidants, the proanthocyanidins. These nutritionally valuable substances have been utilised to treat deteriorating diseases and conditions with great success. Research has shown that proanthocyanidins (Bioflavonoids) are major free radical scavengers and possess up to 50 times stronger antioxidant activity than Vitamins C & E, Beta Carotene or Selenium.

Researchers studying green tea have found it to be an excellent source of potent bioflavonoid-rich compound that is high in polyphenols, a special class of bioflavonoids. The most important of the polyphenols isolated from green tea are catechins, and in particular (-) Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), a strong antioxidant that has a high bio-availability. The phenol groups in green tea polyphenols are extremely active, easily able to capture and neutralize free radicals and other pro-oxidants. The active antioxidant components in Green Tea are thought to be up to 200 times more potent than Vitamin E.



Ideal for arthritis, osteoperosis, expecting or lactating animals.

The body is incapable of manufacturing minerals on its own and therefore minerals need to be obtained from the dietary sources or supplementation. Virtually none of the nutrients such as antioxidants, fibre and protein can assert their benefits without the assistance of one or more key minerals.

Minerals are involved in every metabolic reaction that takes place in the body. They are non-organic components of enzyme systems that initiate the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. They are involved in regulation and maintenance of water and electrolyte balance, skeletal construction, and nerve and muscle function.

DAVIDS Mineral Complex provides a variety of minerals to achieve maximum absorption in the body. The formula is nutritionally balanced to provide correct elemental values for maximum utilisation and benefit.

There are many people who manage to balance their pets diet and lifestyle, enabling them to live a very healthy existence. However, for many pets, the extra support and assistance of a high quality multi-mineral formula is of great benefit. DAVIDS Mineral Complex has been designed to provide extra support in times of increased demand, as well as to meet the specific nutritional needs of your pets.

Chromium is a trace element found in brewer's yeast, organic meats, whole grains, cheese and nuts. It is a nutrient required for good health. Chromium is also an essential cofactor for the hormone insulin, which regulates the metabolism of protein fat and carbohydrates... practically everything animals eat.

Chromium picolinate, a yeast free form of chromium, has been found to enhance the absorption of certain trace elements and is useful in energy production within cells. Chromium is essential for energy production in cells. Blood sugar (glucose) provides nearly 100% of the energy needed for both body and brain; it's transported to trillions of cells via the bloodstream. In order to provide energy, glucose must enter the cells where it is "burned". The hormone insulin and trace element chromium are essential for this purpose.

Extensive research published in scientific and technical journals shows that daily supplementation with at least 200mcg. of chromium picolinate can:
  1. reduce body fat
  2. retain and lean muscle
  3. lower elevated blood sugar
  4. reduce cholesterol levels
  5. extend the lifespan of laboratory animals


"It has been proposed that chromium picolinate's positive effect on body composition is through its ability to improve insulin utilisation, thereby reducing fat deposition and resulting in improving entry of glucose and amino acids into muscle cells," the researchers write. Like other minerals, chromium is a nutritionally essential mineral. Its most biologically available form chromium picolinate (found to be ten times more assimilated than inorganic chromium) can have nutritionally helpful effects on your pet's health and fitness.

Selenium is an essential mineral that possess strong antioxidant enzyme properties. It's primary role in the body is as a component of glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that protects blood cells from the ravages of highly reactive oxygen compounds called free-radicals. Working synergistically with vitamin E, another potent antioxidant, selenium aids in the production of antibodies, and in protecting the immune system. Selenium is required to maintain tissue elasticity, and to support the healthy functioning of the pancreas and the heart. A deficiency of this vital trace element has been linked to the development of leukemia, rheumatism arthritis, and fibrocystic breast disease. Researchers have also found that the lower the concentration of selenium in the blood stream, the higher the risk of developing cancers of the breast, lungs, ovaries, pancreas, cervix, uterus, colon, rectum.

Elemental Iodine is found in varying amounts in the earths crust and soils, and, in larger amounts, in the oceans. Iodine, as iodide or iodate salts, is therefore especially concentrated in the seas and in seafoods, both plant and animal. Your pet's nutritional needs are minute. They require only trace amounts of iodine to help metabolise fats, produce energy, and keep their thyroid glands healthy. 60% of the iodine they eat is stored in the thyroid gland and used in the manufacture of thyroid hormone. These hormones, in turn, regulate, metabolism, energy levels, and the burning of fat. Among reported claims for the use of iodine are to relieve pain associated with fibrocystic breasts. Too little iodine can result in hypothyroidism, weight gain, lack of energy, and reduced mental focus.

Potassium is an important mineral that plays a vital role in the transmission of electrical impulses through the central nervous system, and in regulating the smooth, natural rhythms of the beating heart. It mediates important cellular chemical reactions required for the nutrients to pass into cells, and it helps to maintain the body's water balance. Potassium also helps regulate stable blood pressure levels.

Deficiency of potassium can result in retarded growth and development, muscle weakness, heart and kidney damage and mental confusion.

Copper is a major component of haemoglobin, the protein responsible for oxygen transport in blood cells. Copper, along with vitamin C, forms elastin, a protein required to keep skin, blood vessels, and lungs supple and elastic. As an antioxidant, copper plays a strong dual role. First as a central component of both the superoxide dismutase molecule, which protects us from cellular free-radical damage. Secondly, copper helps form the protein ceruloplasmin, which protects against free-radical damage caused by iron. Copper is also required by the central nervous system as a component in the production of noradrenaline the brain's version of adrenaline and the neurotransmitter that keeps your pet alert. Copper is also involved in the production of prostaglandins, hormone-like chemicals that regulate blood pressure, pulse, and healing.

Current research is looking into deeper aspects of the role copper plays in animal health, from protecting against cancer and heart disease, to boosting th immune system.

Maganese is a mineral that is required in small amounts to manufacture enzymes necessary for the metabolism of proteins and fats. It also supports the immune system, regulates blood sugar levels and is involved in the production of cellular energy, reproduction, and bone growth. Manganese works with vitamin K to support blood clotting, aids in digestion and as antioxidant, is a vital component of Super Oxide Dismutase, a large molecule that is the body's main front-line defence against damaging free radicals. Working with the B-complex vitamins, manganese helps control the effects of stress while contributing to ones sense of well being.

Magnesium is a mineral that is required for the proper growth and formation of bones, muscle tissues, and enzymes. It is used to convert carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy. It is involved in the transmission of the nervous system impulses, assist in the uptake of calcium and potassium. Higher intake of magnesium has also been linked to lung function, according to a study published recently in England. Researchers found that consuming an average of 380 milligrams of magnesium per day exhibited increased lung function.

The body's relative balance of magnesium and calcium has a profound impact on health, as these two minerals must work smoothly together to insure proper muscle control. Calcium is involved in stimulating muscle contraction, and magnesium is required to allow the muscles to relax. Both an excess intakes of calcium or a magnesium deficiency can result in poor muscle coordination, irritability and nervousness. Magnesium also helps to prevent depression, muscle weakness and twitching, heart disorders, and high blood pressure.

Sodium is a vital though often over consumed mineral found throughout the body, usually in the form of sodium chloride or table salt. In liquid solution along with the minerals potassium and chloride, it forms part of the blood, lymph and intracellular fluids that bath and feed all cells. Together these nutrients maintaining the body's proper water balance and blood chemistry. Sodium is also required for digestion, muscular functions, and smooth functioning of the nervous system.

The body maintains strict control of the concentration of sodium within a very narrow range.

When sodium levels become elevated, as in the case of eating a salty meal such as pet food, the body's first response is to stimulate thirst. This leads to the increased consumption of water, which then dilutes the sodium levels back to normal, allowing the kidneys to excrete the excess.

Zinc is an essential mineral that is involved in over 200 different enzymatic reactions in the body, ranging from the synthesis of proteins and collagen, to the production of cellular energy. This vital metal helps to support the immune system by regulating thymus glands' production of T cells. Adequate amounts of this nutrient metal are also vital for the body to manufacture the antioxidant enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase, a large molecule that serves as the main line of defense against free radical damage. Zinc also helps in protecting the liver from damage, and promotes the rapid healing of wounds. Because it's involved in the production of prostaglandins, special hormone-like substances that regulate the reproductive organs, zinc also plays an important role in maintaining healthy prostate function.

Silica is an essential trace mineral source required for total body health. Most visible is its role in maintaining the health of the outside appearance of the body - the skin, hair and nails. By acting as a glue-like substance, Silica holds together and strengthens connective and supportive tissue, which in turn adds firmness and elasticity to skin, luster and body to hair and hardness to nails. Because skin levels of Silica decline with age, it is likely that other tissues may have higher Silica needs over a lifetime.

On the inside, Silica strengthens bones by facilitating the deposition of Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus within the bones. Without this essential trace mineral, the bones and joints would soften, weakening the body's entire structural support system. Silica is also responsible for maintaining the health of the blood vessels and in preventing the body's accumulation of aluminium.
