Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. Launched Oxstrin® Optimized Feline

Edgewood, MD - Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. is proud to announce the launch of Oxstrin Optimized Feline, a veterinary-exclusive, comprehensive formula designed to support a cat's antioxidant and nutritional systems. It contains a patented superoxide dismutase (SOD) complex, which up-regulates the production of the cat's own primary antioxidants including SOD, catalase and glutathione peroxidase, in combination with an optimal blend of vitamins in order to help maintain oxidative balance and support overall health.

Elevated free radical levels and inadequate antioxidants have long been associated with increased body stress and the aging process. This oxidativestress may lead to alterations in lipids, proteins and cellular DNA. SOD, catalase and glutathione peroxidase are three key antioxidant enzymes that help maintain oxidative balance in cats. Supplementation with Oxstrin Optimized Feline not only up-regulates the production of these enzymes but also promotes health benefits by providing additional nutritional support with the inclusion of multiple vitamins. In a study of FIV positive cats, administration of the SOD complex in Oxstrin Optimized Feline appeared to have beneficial effects on several laboratory measures of oxidative stress associated with FIV infection.

Oxstrin Optimized's patented SOD complex protects the SOD from gastric degradation, a common problem with oral SOD supplementation, and allows for its bioactivity within the cat's gastrointestinal tract. "Oxstrin Optimized Feline represents a revolutionary product that provides veterinarians with the ability to not only manage oxidative stress but also to provide nutritional support with one product." said Jennifer Kakel, DVM, Technical Services Veterinarian at Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. "Oxstrin Optimized Feline offers support for cats with retroviral exposure."

Oxstrin Optimized Feline is supplied in capsule form in 42 count bottles. Veterinarians wishing to learn more about Oxstrin Optimized Feline can contact Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. at 1.800.925.5187.
