We don’t take the decision to reformulate one of our most loved products lightly, but we always want our supplements to be the best that they can, and the benefits of changing to black age garlic extract were too good to miss!
- Less allicin - reduces the offensive garlic odour to help palatability, is gentler on the tummy and minimises the risk of side effects
- Increased antioxidants - the fermentation process to create black aged garlic increases the antioxidant concentration. These neutralise free radicals and have positive effects across the body
- Provides supportive, soothing and cleansing effects across various body systems, as well as helping to maintain the body`s defences against parasites and infectious agents
- Contains compounds which naturally repel fleas, ticks and mites
How do Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets help my pet’s skin?
Healthy skin is a vital first line of defence against disease and an essential part of a happy pet, so skin problems can be a real source of misery! Unfortunately, they are common, with a wide range of potential causes – but our Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets can help!
Garlic and fenugreek contain active compounds which promote healthy skin, making our tablets ideal for supporting dogs with sensitive or compromised skin. They help the body remain strong against disease, parasites and infectious agents such as bacteria, and contain amino acids that are essential for skin turnover and repair. Both black aged garlic and fenugreek have high levels of antioxidants, which neutralise free radicals, to have a calming and soothing effect on the skin.
Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets are particularly effective when used in combination with our Green Releaf Tablets.
How do I give Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets?
Our Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets should be given daily, ideally splitting the total daily amount to give half in the morning and half in the evening. They can be given with or without food.
Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets should be given for at least a month and can be used long-term to help maintain a strong immune system - so your dog is ready to fight off whatever life throws at them.
For skin conditions it’s best to use for at least a month before expecting to see the full beneficial effects (as skin takes about three weeks to regenerate in dogs). If you know your dog suffers with their skin at particular times, for example due to pollen allergies, you can start using our Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets a month before. Using with our Green Releaf Tablets can help maximise results.
If you`re a loyal Garlic & Fenugreek user then the number of tablets you need to give your dog will stay the same with the updated product. We have carefully calculated the reformulation so the amount of garlic your dog will receive is the same, so you`ll continue to see the great effects, but with some added benefits.
Should I be worried about garlic toxicity?
You may have been told that garlic is toxic to dogs and so wonder why we sell garlic products specifically for them? It`s true that garlic can be toxic to our pets but like with many things, it comes down to how much and how it is administered. Even people can experience some nasty side effects if they consume too much garlic!
We take the safety of our products very seriously, from ingredient selection, through to rigorous audits of any reported side effects. Of the few mild side effects that have been reported for our Garlic & Fenugreek Tablets, most were related to tummy upsets, which is why we made the decision to use black aged garlic, rather than garlic oil when reformulating these tablets. Black aged garlic is known to help minimise the risk of side effects, be gentler on the tummy and also have additional health benefits when compared to fresh garlic extracts.
Our garlic-containing products are developed to allow you to administer a consistent, measured amount of garlic to your dog, so that they can enjoy the many benefits of garlic and you can have peace of mind. A recent study demonstrated that giving garlic extract to dogs, at a much higher amount than that found in our products, had no adverse effects.
