3 Benefits of Antioxidant Support for Dogs
What are antioxidants? Antioxidants prevent oxidation from occurring within the body for both humans and dogs. Oxidation is a natural progression that breaks down cells in the body slowly - Oxidative damage can play a role in chronic pain, inflammation and cancer, making it increasingly difficult for your dog to walk, run and play (especially in senior dogs).
Anything your pet breathes or eats is processed in their cells on an anatomical level, generating "free radicals." These free radicals are essentially loose atoms looking for something to bond to. When these atoms attach themselves to parts of your pet’s cells, they interfere with certain resources in their body. Antioxidants bond with the free radicals, so nutrients can reach your pet’s body instead. Free radical oxidation damage is a primary cause of aging and disease.

Although there are several enzyme systems in your dog's body to fight the dangers of free radicals, these are not enough to sustain overall good health. As your dog ages, their immune system isn’t able to fight off infections or injuries as easily, increasing risk for inflammation in their tissues and skin. Because antioxidants help protect tissues from oxidative damage, they can prevent inflammation and damage of healthy cells caused by an overproduction of free radicals.
In the past, studies have suggested antioxidants play a role in lowering both blood pressure and cholesterol levels by helping to contract or expand blood flow to and from the heart. This is highly beneficial for the heart health of your senior pup who may be suffering from high blood pressure or is struggling with keeping healthy cholesterol levels. Ongoing antioxidant intake can aid in providing a healthy cardiovascular & immune system as well as support teeth, skin, hair and nails.
Muscle & Joint Support
Antioxidants can also aid in improving mobility and managing pain. If your dog is experiencing issues with walking, running, or other daily activities - this is a sign that they are in pain or something is wrong. Similar to the way antioxidants help with inflammation, they also protect their bones against oxidative damage which can cause joint swelling, pain and reduced mobility.
Because antioxidants are intimately involved in the prevention of cellular damage due to free radical oxidative damage, it’s important to incorporate antioxidants into your dogs’ diet. Thankfully, there are many safe and effective compounds found in healthy fruits and vegetables that can fight disease and aging later in life.
