I was recently introduced to Petandim a few days ago by a rep that gave me a bottle to try on Zuko. They have a human equivalent that has been out longer called Protandim.
The product is said to reduce oxidative stress (which is linked to many diseases such as cancer and diabetes) through Nrf2 activation. It is also said to support joint function, mobility, flexibility and cognitive function as well.
This all sounds quite too good to be true but I wanted to know if anyone has tried it or has heard of it before? IDK how much to expect with this product but Ive listed the ingredients below just to get anyones thoughts on them.
• Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum marianum) seed
• Ashwagandha Extract (Withania somnifera) root
• Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis) leaf
• Bacopa Extract (Bacopa monnieri) whole herb
• Turmeric Extract (Curcuma longa) rhizome
JOINT PROTECTION FORMULA:
• Omega-3 Fatty Acids (120mg)
• Collagen Type II from Chicken Sternum Cartilage (contains glucosamine and chondrotin) (125mg)

Never heard of it but here are my thoughts for what they're worth:
This all sounds quite too good to be true
Yes, I'd agree that they make some pretty big claims. Unfortunately the supplements industry is so unregulated that manufacturers can claim a lot of things about their products before they get investigated by authorities. But...
I can respect that the manufacturer is a member of the following organization. This is a big step toward transparency and integrity for their products. I've read about the NASC in veterinary industry publications, and the group has earned respect within the profession.
The National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) is a trade association dedicated to protecting and enhancing
the health of companion animals. The NASC (National Animal Supplement Council) Quality Seal assures consumers that manufacturers displaying the seal on their products have met rigorous quality control and labeling standards, and have passed a comprehensive quality system audit. The Seal program is part of the nonprofit NASC’s effort to promote consumer access to superior health and nutritional supplements for companion animals— primarily dogs, cats and horses.
I also like that the FAQ for Petandim is comprehensive, explaining exactly what is and isn't in the formula.
I like that there's a money back guarantee on unused product.
About the only thing that raises a red flag for me is they don't say where the ingredients are sourced. That's my big concern.
Just keep in mind that none of these ingredients have been concretely proven within the traditional veterinary community to help improve the health of dogs, beyond what's been shown in the company's own studies (which of course could be biased).
Otherwise this seems like a 'do no harm' product that if you felt like you wanted to try and the cost of buying it isn't a huge burden, then why not give it a go.
