TOP QUESTIONS

What is the proper dosage for my dog?

The dosage that was reported to work best to prolong the lifespan of dogs suffering from hemangiosarcoma in the UPenn study was 100/mg per kilogram (kg) of bodyweight per day. (Link to full study:www.hindawi.com , or to download a pdf copy of the study Click Here). Please note this was a pilot study and the next study will provide more definitive results.

How do I give him/her I’m-Yunity®?

The animals in Dr. Brown’s study did not have problems swallowing the capsules directly (and afterward the empty capsules maybe spitted out), but you can also mix the powder from the capsules with wet dog food. Make sure your animal drink plenty of water.

What kind of reactions should I expect?

I’m- Yunity® is made from the Coriolus versicolor mushroom with active ingredient PSP (polysaccharide peptide), which is a safe herb that has been well documented in the Compendium of Materia Medica (link to www.imyunity.com) to enhance immune functions in both humans and animals. In addition to the findings from the UPenn study, people who have used this product reported that their pets appeared more active, better appetite and shinier fur.

Are there any learned interactions with drugs or herbs?

We have a study that looks at potential drug interactions of drugs that are metabolized on the P450 enzyme pathway in humans. The link to the abstract on Medline is www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. If you need the full report please email us. Some chemo drugs fall into this category. This study demonstrated that I’m –Yunity® is not likely to have any drug interaction with drugs metabolized on this pathway. If you use any of the chemo drugs mentioned below that are metabolized on this pathway, chances are you have a better safety profile using concomitantly. As this study was done in human, it is difficult to say if the results would be the same in dogs without repeating a drug interaction study. However, in animal toxicity studies yunzhi was considered safe in doses up to 18g/kg in acute toxicity test1 and 6g/kg in subchronic toxicity test2.

How soon should I see any result?

I’m- Yunity® is a herbal supplement based on Chinese medicine principles. In general, the benefits of the product can be seen within 7-14 days of using the product. In animals this is largely down to the owner observing their pet’s behavior changes. If you see signs of improved appetite, energy level, and quality of sleep, they can be due to enhanced immune function and contributed from the use of I’m-Yunity® .

Are there any side effects?
