Our Myelin Basic Protein helps to rebuild myelin sheath (brain network connection) in pets suffering from autoimmune conditions such as degenerative myelopathy. The myelin basic protein is an important protein component that comprises myelin. Autoimmune conditions in which an animal's own antibodies begin to attack the body's proteins can damage this important protein, a process called demyelination. . When this occurs nerve signals do not travel from the brain down the spinal cord as they should. This leads to myelopathy symptoms such as weakness in the rear end and urinary or fecal incontinence.

Consumers should be aware that suspected causes of demyelination include toxicity from heavy metals or pesticides from vaccinations, food or environmental contamination. Animals that have been vaccinated have higher levels of autoantibodies associated with autoimmune disease, so consumers should be very careful about over-vaccinating their pets.
