Cucumber treats inflammation in pets

Cuvrex™ by Naturalea is a pure botanical extract produced from fresh cucumbers and containing Natexin, the commercial designation of the mix of different active compounds obtained by Naturalea through its patented proprietary manufacturing process, that has showed excellent applications possibilities in humans and in pet care thanks to its anti-inflammatory actions.

In veterinary and pet care the indicated use of Cuvrex™ is the prevention and the symptomatic treatment of acute and chronic inflammatory states of the skin, the joints, the gut (IBD) and the skeletal musculature, while improving dog’s wellbeing and health and athletic performance.

Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) is naturally rich in phytoconstituents with anti-inflammatory effects.

Inflammation can result from intense physical activity and is involved in a number of disease states.
Moreover, a mild pro-inflammatory state due to increased peripheral levels of inflammatory cytokines is often associated with aging.

Cuvrex™ is a botanical extract with strong anti-inflammatory activity representing a true innovation in the market, with possible applications in the prevention and in the symptomatic treatment of inflammatory states in pets.
Cuvrex™ is particularly indicated for sporting dogs, elderly animals, in skin care and in subjects with gut problems. 

In vitro and in vivo studies have shown the beneficial effects of Cuvrex™ in fighting acute and chronic inflammation due to intense physical exercise and chronic inflammation linked to IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), a debilitating condition characterized with a wide range of symptoms including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, weight loss and fever. It is relatively common in small dogs.

Cuvrex™ presumably acts at the earliest stages of the inflammatory cascade, by suppressing the levels of TNF- α, a key regulator of the inflammatory immune response.

Cuvrex™is a product of Naturalea, distributed in the US market by Faravelli, Inc.
