For thousands of years, animals in the wild thrived on a diet of natural raw foods. These foods provided all of the nutrients, vitamins, organic minerals, trace elements, chlorophyll and antioxidants, as well as the beneficial bacteria and enzymes their bodies are designed to use. But today, whether animals live in our homes, on our farms, or are otherwise under our care, their diets are often dramatically different.
Many essential nutrients are heat sensitive; therefore, critical nutritional properties are destroyed by modern processing and storage methods. They are often replaced in animal feeds with synthetic minerals and vitamins, or vitamin isolates that do not provide the same benefits to the body that whole foods do. If these nutritional needs are unmet for an extended period of time, animals will develop an impaired immune system, evidenced by any number of symptoms, including allergies, dry skin, dull hair coat, and increased susceptibility to parasites.
There are supplement products that support your quest to find holistic, natural answers for the health of your animal. Our favorite products were originally developed for humans and offer superior nutritional support for animals. Supporting the health and immune system of your animals with high quality nutrition is the best and most cost-effective choice for their bodies.
For instance, this powdered alage blend provides both people and animals with nutritionally dense bluegreen algae, a full spectrum probiotic with an exceptional mix of probiotics and enzymes, antioxidant-rich wheat sprouts, and 700 mg of glucosamine per teaspoon for healthy joint support—all in a convenient shaker bottle.
