Vetri Lysine Plus are bite-sized and highly palatable chicken liver-flavored chews for felines. Designed to support immune system function, Vetri Lysine Plus also supports antibody and lymphocyte production and tissue repair.
Vetri Lysine Plus are so called because of the inclusion of Dimethylglycine, an intermediary metabolite that is naturally produced in the body in small amounts during the methylation process. Vetri-Science® Laboratories holds four U.S. patents on DMG, backed by 20 years of extensive research.
DMG provides essential building blocks, including methyl groups, that in turn support the body’s production of such important substances as hormones, vitamins, neurotransmitters, nucleic acids and antibodies. It supports the immune response through contributing those methyl groups to bodily processes which require them.
DMG is not an immune system booster. Instead, research indicates that DMG supplementation works to support oxygen utilization on a cellular level, meaning it supports cell health, membrane elasticity, etc. It does not up or down regulate the immune system, but instead is referred to as an adaptogen.
Lysine is known to compete with L-arginine, another amino acid that is required by the herpes virus for replication.
Lysine supports hormone and enzyme production, as well as collagen formation, tissue repair and antioxidant activity.
Vetri Lysine Plus for felines and kittens is available in a 120 count.
