Passion for innovative concepts allowed the Nature’s Protection team to create the FAUGIS line of highly effective nutritional supplements for dogs and horses.
The active substance is Silicon, an unknown mineral but with important health benefits. Orthosilicic acid, stabilised with L-Carnitine, assures the highest bioavailability of Silicon.
There is abundant evidence about Silicon’s major importance in human and animal health:
|•||..||Silicon stimulates the calcium reabsorption and the mineralisation of the skeleton, helping maintain a healthy bone structure, but also maintaining healthy joints and ligaments.|
|•||It is also proven to stimulate the body’s natural defense systems.|
|•||Silicon further provides for a strong and shiny hair coat by influencing the strength and elasticity of fibrous protein.|
|•||FDA-controlled blind studies showed that Silicon increases the performance while dramatically decreasing injury rates among racehorses.|
FAUGIS Canine for dogs and FAUGIS Equine for horses are currently available through veterinary practices and other health-related outlets.
BENEFITS OF FAUGIS:
|•||..||Silicon was shown to be essential for the formation of joint cartilage.|
|•||Silicon is a cross-linking agent in the glycosaminoglycan network, which attracts and holds water in the joint.|
|•||..||Silicone acts as a regulating factor in bone mineralisation.|
|•||Stimulates DNA synthesis in osteoblast-like bone forming cells.|
|•||Inhibits osteoclast mediated bone reabsorption in vitro.
|•||The synthesis of collagen, the fibrous protein that is essential for the flexibility of the bone, is decreased by Silicon deficiency.|
TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS
|•||..||The synthesis of collagen, a major compound in tendons and ligaments, is decreased by Silicon deficiency.
|•||The activity of prolylhydroxylase, a specific enzyme for collagen synthesis, was shown to be Silicon dependent in vitro.|
|•||..||Silicon makes the inner lining of arterial tissue (tunica intima) less permeable.|
|•||In the case of a high cholesterol diet, Silicon supplementation reduces the occurrence of atherosclerotic lesions in blood vessels.|
|•||The aorta and the carotid artery of healthy persons contain approximately 10 times more Silicon compared to atheromatous arteries.|
SKIN AND COAT
|•||..||Important for optimal collagen synthesis.|
|•||Crucial for activating the hydroxylation enzymes for crosslinking collagen, which improves the strength and elasticity of this fibrous protein.|
|•||Better collagen means better skin quality and more elasticity.|
|•||The outer shaft of hair, that provides elasticity and strength, is rich in silicon.|
|•||Hair with higher Silicon content tends to fall out less and has more shine and luster.|
|•||Supports the treatment of skin diseases like psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, neurodermitis, atopic dermatitis, skin irritations, wound healing, etc.|
