Untamed PEAK FORM is a high-quality protein supplement, enriched with natural plant extracts, to enhance overall body condition and performance in active pets, athletes, working breeds, and showring beauties.  PEAK FORM is also used by pets recovering from illness, injury, malnourishment, or ageing pets to improve protein balance, support cellular regeneration, help maintain muscle tissue, and enhance general well-being.

The ancestral diet of dogs is characterized by an average consumption of 52% protein, 47% fat and 1% carbohydrates of ME (metabolizable energy). Cats’ natural diet comprises 52% protein, 46% fat and 2% carbohydrates. According to AAFCO, the minimum recommended allowance of crude protein, as percentage of the daily nutrient intake, is 18% for adult dogs and 26% for cats.  Commercial pet foods contain between 18-34% protein; more protein than the minimum recommended amount.  However, since protein is the most expensive macronutrient, many of these foods unfortunately contain poor quality, incomplete protein sources which often are not digested well.  Insufficient protein or poor-quality protein diets may predispose the animal to poor condition, muscle wasting, osteoporosis, impaired recovery after injury or training, and decreased mental ability. Protein-rich diets have multiple health benefits, promote a healthy body condition, and help to maintain general well-being.

WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE is a natural constituent of milk.  It is considered a complete protein source, containing all amino acids required for healthy physiological function.  Protein is an essential component of all living cells, and a substrate for a multitude of physiological processes.  Whey Protein have significant anti-inflammatory-, antioxidant-, and immune-modulating properties. It:

  • enhances protection against toxins, viruses, and bacteria,
  • reduces the risk of various cancers,
  • promotes cardiovascular-, liver-, digestive- and hormonal health,
  • maintains healthy skin and bone,
  • supports healthy body weight,
  • promotes a sense of well-being, and
  • stimulates muscle regeneration and functional adaptation.
  • Whey protein contains amino acids which form vital structural components in muscle cells, ligaments and tendons. It is rich in amino acid leucine, which helps to reduce muscle breakdown under stressful conditions, and stimulate muscle protein synthesis4. Sufficient protein enables your pet to improve muscle composition and physical strength, especially when combined with regular exercise. Whey protein promotes a leaner, muscular, and healthy body condition.  1-5 

BCAA’s are essential amino acids, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.  They are rapidly absorbed and metabolised in muscle tissue where they have a pronounced effect on muscle function, regeneration and muscle mass. 

BCAA’s supports physical and mental performance by:

  • Enhancing mental and physical energy, through its availability as fuel substrate for the brain and muscles, sparing muscle glycogen as fuel for high intensity activity, and promoting fat metabolism as fuel for active muscles. These benefits enhance endurance capacity and physical performance11,12.
  • Inhibiting muscle degeneration: BCAA’s helps to minimize the production of stress-induced cortisol and inflammatory mediators, protecting against inflammatory muscle degeneration and age-related muscle wasting6,13.
  • Stimulating muscle cell recovery and hypertrophy: BCAA’s stimulate adaptive responses in skeletal muscle in response to physical activity, enhancing muscle strength and size7-10.
  • Supporting immune function: BCAA’s are fuel substrates for immune cells, and are essential for immune cell development and responsiveness. During catabolic states (injury, illness, infection, ageing, intensive physical activity) the body’s requirement of protein and amino acids significantly increases.  If there is a sub-optimal supply of amino acids, susceptibility to infections are increased.  An adequate supply of BCAA’s is therefore necessary to support and strengthen immune function during challenging conditions.

SIBERIAN GINSENG root is an exceptional adaptogen, and is valued as one of the highest esteemed medicinal plants. An adaptogen can be described as a substance which exhibits a non-specific enhancement in the body’s defence systems against external and internal stress factors.  It increases the body’s resistance to stress, fatigue and disease, and establishes biological homeostasis, with minimal side effects.

Siberian Ginseng’s adaptogenic and performance enhancing effects related to physical activity:

  • Increase resistance to various types of stress: Physical, mental, emotional or environmental stress, expose a living being to multiple physiological challenges.  Depending on severity, duration of exposure, and the animal’s resilience, these challenges may disturb the biological balance, and predispose the animal to chronic inflammatory disease and fatigue.  Canine athletes, working-, and service dogs often experience physical, mental and emotional stress, which challenge their health and well-being. Siberian ginseng is a powerful adaptogenic herb.  It can reduce fatigue, and enhance performance in spite of challenging circumstances like intensive physical activity.  Siberian ginseng reduces exercise-induced cortisol elevation and inflammation, minimising the adverse physiological effects of emotional and physical challenges, and increasing general resistance to stress 122.
  • Anti-fatigue & performance enhancing: Siberian ginseng’s performance enhancing effects can be attributed to its ability to reduce muscle damage, inhibit elevation of blood urea nitrogen levels, and increase utilization of fats as energy source. Its anti-fatigue effects may also be related to its antioxidant actions. 123,124

SCHISANDRA is a well-known tonic which supports general well-being, and enhances resistance against various kinds of physiological challenges.  It is classified as an adaptogenic herb, which supports healthy function of the immune-, hormone-, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive-, nervous system, muscles, and organ systems.

Effect of Schisandra on physical performance:

  • Increases resistance to acute and chronic stress:   Schisandra, an adaptogenic tonic, increases an animal’s resistance to stress by regulating stress hormones, and protecting against the degenerative effect of stress through enhancing antioxidant capacity, reducing inflammation, strengthening immune defences, and supporting healthy function of physiological systems.  Schisandra also enhances the animal’s recovery from injury or illness by reducing inflammation, and stimulating cellular regeneration.14 
  • Enhances performance: Schisandra enhances performance by stimulating central nervous system activity, increasing mental acuity, and enhancing physical work capacity, especially during stressful and exhaustive circumstances.  It reduces muscle fatigue by improving muscle perfusion, oxygen and nutrient supply15, and decreases the production of metabolic by-products like lactate and BUN (blood urea nitrogen), indicating enhanced physical capacity.16-19

SPIRULINA is a highly nutritious blue-green algae, and is considered a super food. It contains superior concentrations of protein and essential amino acids, carbohydrates, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, multiple phytoactives, and chlorophyll. These nutrients function in synergy to support multiple physiological systems and promote general health.

  • Antioxidant protection: Intensive physical activity promotes the production of reactive oxygen species and oxidative damage, which contribute to muscle inflammation and fatigue.  Spirulina increases the levels of antioxidant enzymes and antioxidants like GSH (reduced glutathione), Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. These antioxidants enhance protection against oxidative muscle damage and fatigue20
  • Enhances muscle performance and endurance capacity: Spirulina benefits physical performance by promoting muscle regeneration and hypertrophy, encouraging fat metabolism as muscle fuel whilst sparing muscle glycogen stores, enhancing power output, improving endurance capacity and hence, reducing time to fatigue20-24

THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

“Our Monty was recently run over by a car. Unfortunately he sustained multiple injuries to his legs, and eventually lost his front leg. Except for the Untamed REJUVENMAX, which he has loved and used for many months, Untamed Animal Health also recommended that we start him on PEAK FORM to enhance the recovery process.  Monty recovered remarkably well. Within one week he was back on our 3 ha small holding, running around and digging holes on his three legs, like nothing has ever happened to him!  His speedy recovery and lively personality, can truly be attributed to much love, care, his healthy diet, and these two products from Untamed.” Emile

“Bella, the first dog to do the Cape Town 13 peaks for charity has the following to say:

Going up the peaks in Cape Town is no easy task for any human or dog.  It takes quite a lot of effort jumping up and down some sections and still covering around 20 km a day.  Thanks to Untamed Hip and Joint and Peak Form, Bella’s recovery time after the peaks are incredible.  Not a lot of dogs can do a hike like this the one day and do agility 2 days later.

Thank you Untamed Health for making this journey so easy!”Vicki

“My dog (Finn) and I compete in agility. I had him on Untamed PEAK FORM before the South African agility championships. He did amazing at the championships. He was so toned, recovered quickly, and thank goodness he had no injuries.

I had so many comments about how well he looked. He was overall in great shape.

Thanks so much for a great product. We would love to try some of the others.” Jana

“Gracie is 14 yo. She had a tragic accident about 5 months ago when she was run over by truck. Her pelvis was broken in two places, her femur head had to be removed and her back was very sore. I have seen such an amazing change in her since starting Untamed Peak Form and more recently their Hip and Joint” Yvonne Zwiegelaar

“Nina my canine athlete has been on Untamed Peak Form and Hip & Joint from UNTAMED for 3 weeks and already her back stiffness (normal for agility athletes) has improved. I’m very curious as to what her physio will say. Her muscle tone and strength also improved. I so wish I had access to this product in 2016 when she hurt her hock. Thank you UNTAMED for keeping my athlete strong and healthy. We will definitely recommend this product to anyone that want to improve health overall in their best friend. We also use it as a preventitive measure to injury, stiffness in joints and ageing. Also, if injury might occur it will help Nina with the recovery process, hence why I said earlier I wish I could’ve used it when she had her injury. And the BEST quality of this product everything is natural and all human grade so I know it’s safe if I can use it too. AND another plus is its very affordable too.” Leandre Wilson

“Elsa’s condition is amazing on Peak Form. Her physique is nicely toned and her coat is shinier than both her mom’s and her granddad’s. I truly believe in this product.” Monique
