How Vetericyn Works

Mimicking the body’s Immune System Response to Infections

Neutrophils are the most abundant type of white blood cells in humans and form an integral part of the immune system. As demonstrated in the video above, a human neutrophil senses and moves toward a yeast cell. Next, it surrounds and digests the yeast cell. The neutrophil uses an oxidative or respiratory burst to produce a number of active ingredients including hypochlorous acid to kill the yeast.

Neutrophils are the most abundant type of white blood cells in humans and animals and form an integral part of the immune system. Neutrophils are created on demand by the body to counter single pathogens like a bacteria or virus. Single cell pathogens cannot regulate their oxygen content like mammal cells can. So when these white blood cells surround the pathogen, they generate and release an oxy-chlorine compound. This process is called an “oxidative burst” and kills the pathogen.

Vetericyn contains compounds similar to those produced by these white blood cells to destroy the pathogen. But it does not harm other surrounding tissue and actually creates an environment that is most conducive to healing.

Vetericyn’s active ingredient utilizes technology to produce a stable, electrolyzed saline solution for the treatment of wounds, hot spots, fungus, rain rot and other dermal irritations and abrasions. In addition to the eradication of infection, our patented technology has also demonstrated the ability to speed healing through the increase of oxygen and blood flow to a wound site as well as by reducing inflammation.

Our technology has been successfully used on over two million humans worldwide without a single report of a serious adverse affect. Vetericyn is backed by over 25 clinical studies including two on large animals (bovine conjunctivitis and bovine throat ailments). This unparalleled wound treatment is now available for animal health through Vetericyn.
