Chlorella is a single-celled algae that is attracting a lot of attention for its staggering array of nutrients and micronutrients. It contains a wealth of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients and plenty of probiotic-supporting prebiotics.
It also helps maintain a healthy cholesterol level, according to a 2017 study in Nutrition Journal. However, chlorella supplementation may affect blood clotting, so if you take blood thinners like warfarin, talk with your doctor before adding it to your diet.
It can be given as a powder to mix into your pet’s food or as part of a combination supplement. Regardless of how you use it, choose a quality product that is as close to its natural state as possible and avoid products that contain fillers, artificial colors or preservatives.
If your pet’s diet is highly processed, including dried kibble, she can be short on natural enzymes needed to break down and digest carbs and starches. Likewise, if she is consuming a meat-based diet or a homemade or frozen species-specific raw food, she needs extra digestive enzymes to break down protein and fat.
Today’s commercial pet foods often lack healthy natural enzymes, and even if they do have them, they are often destroyed during the manufacturing process to extend shelf life. The heat and processing necessary to produce these foods may also chemically trap food nutrients, causing them to pass through your pet’s digestive system unutilized.
Fortunately, you can boost your pet’s digestive enzyme stores with the help of a good quality enzyme formula. Feeding your pet a small morsel of a high-quality animal-based enzyme one or two hours after meals can help her maintain a healthy balance of digestive and metabolic enzymes.
A staple in the vegan pantry, nutritional yeast flakes have become a popular cooking ingredient for people looking to add a cheesy flavor to their diet without dairy. This nutty flavored supplement also has high levels of protein, B vitamins and minerals that boost immunity, energy, and metabolism.
Often sold as flakes or powders, nutritional yeast is a deactivated form of yeast (usually Saccharomyces cerevisiae), grown on a sugar medium like glucose and molasses before being dried into a food product.
It contains B vitamins and antioxidants that promote healthy skin, immune system function, and a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, it’s rich in essential minerals that support cell and organ function, including magnesium, calcium, potassium, chromium, zinc, and iron.
A supplemental form of nutrition yeast is available for dogs and cats in chewable tablets and powder. While formulations vary by manufacturer, the key is to make sure that the supplements you choose contain high levels of vitamins and minerals that are safe for your dog or cat to consume.
There is a specific coenzyme that works in your body that helps make energy for just about every cell, and healthy function for every tissue and organ. It’s called Coenzyme Q10, and it’s especially important for heart, liver and muscle cells – the tissues that need the most.
It’s also an antioxidant, protecting your pet’s cells, tissues and organs from oxidative stress, which can contribute to cellular aging. Free radicals are unstable molecules in the body that can damage DNA and cellular membranes.
The right amount of Coenzyme Q10 helps maintain the oxygen levels within individual cells, supporting cellular respiration and helping to preserve normal heart function. This is especially important in older pets since the production of this vital nutrient declines with age.
Ubiquinol Liquid Pump for Cats & Dogs provides your pet with the preferred, reduced form of CoQ10, ubiquinol. It’s a safe, quick and convenient way to deliver this important antioxidant to your pet. It offers a simple and non-fuss application that delivers a precise dose of CoQ10 according to your pet’s weight.
