Pets & Vitamin Supplements

Just like human beings, dogs and cats have nutritional needs that must be met in order for optimal health and wellness.  Many of the medical issues that affect pets regularly concern the digestive system and the ability to break down food properly and absorb nutrients.  Allergies and chronic gastrointestinal issues are a constant problem for pet owners and veterinarians alike.

The Need for Digestive Enzymes

Foods in their natural state contain enzymes to aid in the digestion process before they reach the large intestine.  Unfortunately if they are cooked or over processed in some way, many of the necessary enzymes are destroyed.  This causes large particles of food to become absorbed in the bloodstream, triggering an immune response in some animals.  This can lead to inflammation and allergic reactions creating chronic health problems for the pet.

Enzymes benefit dogs and cats in a number of other ways as well including:

Immune system support
Regulation of normal body weight
Promotion of normal cell growth
Maintaining healthy gums and teeth
Helping with gas, bloating, constipation and heartburn
Promotion of respiratory health
Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels
Reduction of food sensitivities
Reduction of occasional bloating, gas, heartburn, and constipation
Providing energy because nutrients are better utilized
Removal of toxins
Help with joints

Benefits of Enzyme Supplements    

Enzyme supplements may benefit pets by helping them digest food more easily and absorb nutrients efficiently.  Several other secondary diet-related problems may also be reduced or eliminated altogether with enzyme support.  These include body odor, flatulence, eating of stools, shedding in excess and itchy skin.
