Why is Immune Health Important to Your Dog?
According to the U.S. National Canine Cancer Foundation, “one out of every three dogs will get cancer,” it is likely that your dog will have cancer sometime in life. The good news is about half of the cancer types are treatable, if diagnosed early and treated by update treatment programs.
Just like human, the immune system of dog is the key in preventing and combating cancer. Scientists have recognized three primarily protective roles for the immune system in cancer control:
- Eliminating or suppressing viral infections to protect against virus-induced cancers;
- Timely elimination of pathogens and prompt resolution of inflammation to prevent the establishment of an inflammatory environment for cancer growing;
- Immune surveillance, a process to identify and destroy deformed body cells before they become malignancy.
If the immune system of your dog is dysfunction, unable to arrest the deformed body cells to reproduce where possible, a progressively growing cancer will result. Improper immune function also leads to a host of other problems, such as infection, slower healing, organ dysfunction, tissue degeneration, and even early aging.
When your dog’s body functions well and has good immunity, it is easy to keep disease and injury minimal with faster healing and a prolong life as well.
Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment designed to boost the body’s natural defenses to fight against cancer, which becomes increasingly important to clinical oncology today. The treatments are provided for different purposes; some boost the overall immune functioning, others help train the immune components to attack cancer cells specifically. Newer types of immunotherapy are coming too, which will definitely change how cancer is treated in the future.
Certain mushrooms such as corioulus versicolor in particular have been found to contain compounds with powerful immune modulation effects. Their protein-bound polysaccharides have positive activities on anti-cancer and immune cell response. In China, medicinal mushrooms have long been used for a wide range of health problems, especially for enhancing and rebuilding the body after major or long-term illnesses.
Our product I’m-Yunity® is made from a proprietary extract of corioulus versicolor, provided by the inventor exclusively, and backup with over 20 years of scientific researches. All the researches about I’m-Yunity® were performed by independent academic institutions in the U.S., Hong Kong and China.
We continued our study in a well-known veterinary research centre in the U.S. A larger scale study has conducted to make sure the pilot results are repeatable with I’m-Yunity® and there is direct benefit from Chinese medicine herbal products.
We value quality research and want to help people better understand about the products they choose to use.
