    Bio-Cardio combines the antioxidant potential of CoQ10 with other cardio-protective nutrients and botanicals. Because Bio-Cardio promotes oxygen utilization it enhances the animal's physical stamina.

    According to the American Veterinary Medical Association‚ one in 10 dogs suffers from poor cardiovascular health. Bio-Cardio combines the unique antioxidant and cardio-protective qualities of CoenzymeQ10 (CoQ10) with the amino acid taurine‚ whose support for healthy cardiac function in cats is well established. In addition‚ other ingredients in Bio-Cardio include L-carnitine‚ which has been shown to improve appetite and exercise tolerance in dogs; vitamin E‚ which provides essential antioxidant activity in all tissues including the heart; and magnesium and potassium‚ which are necessary for healthy cardiac contractility and for maintaining a healthy heart rhythm. Three botanical ingredients – Crataegus laevigata (hawthorn extract) and Terminalia arjuna (arjuna extract)‚ which contribute to healthy heart muscle function‚ and Eleutherococcus senticosus (eleuthero root extract)‚ an adaptogen that supports physical stamina – are also included in the Bio-Cardio formula.


    Research on CoQ10 in animals demonstrates that it promotes the utilization of oxygen in the heart and helps maintain the health of the muscular tissue of the heart (the myocardium).

    The amino acid L-carnitine promotes cellular energy production in the mitochondria and supports heart muscle metabolism.

    Magnesium supports vascular smooth muscle tone. Deficiencies of magnesium and potassium often occur concurrently; therefore‚ it is essential to replenish both of them. Unlike humans and dogs‚ cats are unable to synthesize the amino acid taurine‚ so it must be supplemented.

    On the advice of our vet weve been giving Bio-Cardio to our pomeranian who unfortunately has a heart condition. So far weve been able to keep the little old lady in good health and we believe that these pills have helped because of the various components in them that are meant to help in such circumstances.

    Pros

    Seems specific to the condition of heart health and improving problems associated with it.

    Cons

    Somewhat difficult to administer but then all medication is rather hard to give dogs.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    My 12 year old poodle was recently diagnosed with an enlarged heart. He had started with periodic coughing just recently. I started with the Bio-Cadio (for Dogs and Cats) by Thorne Research several weeks ago and he seems to be coughing less. Hopefully it will will give him added years with us. I have also noticed he has increased energy in our daily walks. He seems to be keeping up quite well with our 2 year old Maltese Bella.

    Pros

    Increased energy, less coughing.

    Cons

    Capsule is a little large for swallowing but I open it and sprinkle it over my Poodles food.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    My three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels all have heart murmurs. My wholistic vet says she has had several dogs whose murmurs were completely eliminated by the use of Bio-Cardio by Thorne Research. I don't know if it works yet but the company I ordered it from was speedy and well priced.
