As mentioned in the Forever Dog Book, this is a natural and safe source of Resveratrol which is great for protecting against any cancer, tumors, also stimulates injured cells to help them regain their ability to produce their own antioxidant defenses, lastly if they ever have Lyme disease, it helps treat the condition, because it increase their circulation, especially to the heart and joints! 

Japanese Knotweed is an herb that includes an excellent source of vitamin A, while the roots contain large amounts of the natural polyphenol known as resveratrol. That’s where the magic is for dogs.

Resveratrol is also commonly found in red wine which is one of the reasons why red wine is so good for you.  However, since we avoid giving our dogs red wine or resveratrol from large amounts of grapes, a supplement containing Japanese Knotweed is an excellent alternative to supply resveratrol for your dog.

In fact, it’s believed by many that this herb is very helpful for those with Lyme's Disease.
  • Japanese Knotweed is also believed to include strong levels of antiviral and antibacterial properties. Some have reported increased energy levels and alertness in dogs who’ve consumed Japanese knotweed roots,
