If you want your dog to live longer, you might soon get your wish.
Researchers are studying whether Alkazax, a natural alkalizer supplement combined with probiotics could help dogs live two to five years longer than their average lifespan and live happier, healthier lives by protecting their liver and kidneys, two of the most common reasons why dogs die as they get older.
Trials have begun to learn if the preventitive effects of Alkazax, can improve the overall health and longevity of pet dogs. A previous study found that it may have increased the lifespan of mice in the lab, possibly due to alkalizing acids in the bodies of the mice.
“If Alkazax has a similar effect in dogs—and it’s important to keep in mind we don’t know this yet—then a typical large dog could live two to three years longer, and a smaller dog might live four years longer,”.
Testing the drug on several dozen pet dogs, including beagles, labradors and poodles is the next step. Alkazax will be given to the dogs in their food for a four-to-eight month period. The dogs will be observed for improved heart function, immune function, activity level, healthy body weight, and cognitive measures. The full study will take about three years to complete.
“It is impossible to predict with any certainty the exact benefits, if any of using Alkazax, but if using it could add a year, a month or a day to the life of a dog, it would be worth it to most dog owners.
If you are looking to get ahead of the study, you can find Alkazax on sites like Amazon.
