Phenomind™: a natural solution to limit the effects of aging on dogs and maintain the bond between pets and owners.
Pets’ life span has been continuously increasing over the past years. Advanced age in dogs is frequently associated with memory loss and decline of physical vitality. As their loyal friends age, dog owners witness them being less dynamic, less prompted to play, and more sensitive to environmental factors. And with time, interactions between dogs and their parents deteriorates thus eroding their connection.
To maintain the bond and strengthen the relationship between dogs and their parents, Phenomind™ has been developed as a solution made from scientifically proven ingredients that enhance dogs’ living conditions.
Keep the fond memories alive, keep the connection on.
By enriching our BonaCibo Adult Dog Foods with Phenomind™, which is a natural source of polyphenols that consists of grape and blueberry extracts, we have developed brand-new dog foods.
Our new adult dog foods have a strong positive impact on memory regression by ageing on dogs of all breeds. It helps maintain the communication and of course friendship bonds between pets and owners for a longer time by protecting dogs’ cognitive abilities through ageing.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT :
Premix of dry grape extract (vitis vinifera) and wild blueberry powder (vaccinium angustifolium) for dogs food.
IMPROVE ANTI-OXYDANT STATUS
Phenomind™ increases the antioxidant level in blood. Dogs supplemented with Phenomind™ tend to improve significantly and synergistically their total antioxidant status compared to those supplement with grape and blueberry extracts taken alone (p:0,058).
BETTER BRAIN FUNCTION PERFORMANCES
Aged animals fed with Phenomind-rich diets showed a greater proportion of hippocampus- dependent spatial learning strategies compared to the aged control group (aged control vs aged supplemented; p<0,001).
COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME (CDS):
Aged dogs fed with Phenomind-rich diets showed significantly improved cognitive performances in memory assessed by delayed non-matching position test scores compared to the aged control group (p<0,0301).
It realy works!
Phenomind™ has scientifically proven its performance. To evaluate the efficacy of Phenomind™ on dogs’ cognitive abilities, the DNMP (Delayed Non Matching Position) test measuring the ability of aged dogs to memorize the position of anovel object has been carried out. The protocol was composed of 1 placebo and 1 dose of Phenomind included in the kibble.
Evaluation of the learning abilities showed that dogs fed with Phenomind™ during 8 weeks displayed a significantly greater cognitive capacity improvement than those which did not receive any supplementation.
