APF Pro is the most advanced adaptogenic herbal formula for use in canine athletes. APF Pro combines the proven nutritional technology of the original APF (Advanced Protection Formula) with the muscle-building power of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E). 20E is a safe and natural plant extract found in Rhaponticum carthamoides. 20E is one of the most widely researched nutrients used by top athletes and body builders for its remarkable ability to safely increase lean muscle mass during strength training. None of the adverse effects of anabolic steroids are found with 20E.
APF Pro is unequalled in its protection of both the immune system and cellular metabolism. APF Pro gives your dog all the stress protection unique to our original formula, plus the added gastric health benefit of Aralia mandschurica. Veterinary researchers have found Aralia can have important protective benefits against stomach upset caused by stress.

DOG IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT AND ADAPTOGENS
Adaptogens are natural plant and herb extracts that are effective at supporting the immune system and fighting stress in the body. When your canine is exposed to conditions that push the immune system outside the normal range of daily activity, the animal can succumb to exhaustion or even sickness. Adaptogens provide your dog with the right tools that his body needs to quickly bring the immune support system back into balance and provide a fast recovery.
Adaptogens have a natural ability to keep homeostasis in the body aligned and provide support for the canine immune system. It does this by improving the dog’s ability to realign itself to the effects of external stressors by providing the perfect balance of plant-derived herbs that have been shown to improve mental and physical health. If the dog’s immune system is stressed in a way that pushes it beyond its normal limits, then the Adaptogens help the body to quickly “adapt” to the situation and create a more congruent state of health for the animal. By helping to create the internal balance that a dog needs, it will have a happier and healthier life.
