Top 10 Ways Supplements Can Help Your Cat

Herbs and supplements do a lot more than build nutritional layers into your cat's diet. They also can provide powerful tools to help fight disease and conditions that commonly undermine health in our pets.

  1. Balance the immune system. Balanced immunity is like armor for your cat's body. An immune system that is out of balance experiences inflammation, which is a CATALYST for disease. Examples of common immune disorders include allergies, arthritis and skin disorders. Cat’s Claw may help support balanced immunity and digestive health.
  2. Support digestion. Supplements may help support balanced digestion. Immunity resides primary in your pet's native gut flora. Proper digestive health better enables your pet’s body to absorb nutrients. If immunity is compromised, your pet can experience digestive upset, may be unable to utilize nutrients (even if you feed premium food!) and open the pathway for disease.
  3. Build resistance. Supplements can help provide a fortified defense against common threats to your pet’s health including fleas, ticks, chronic urinary tract infections, crystals, stones, irregular tissues,  etc.
  4. Fight infection. Many herbs naturally fight infection. For example, Camu Camu is a water soluble antioxidant, which may help provide an important defense again bacteria and viruses, plus it may also help support bone, eye, teeth, skin and coat health. For pet parents concerned about a history of crystal and stone formation in their pets, it has been studied for its effects to not affect stone formation.
  5. Reduce wear and tear. Supplements can help maintain joint and connective tissue health. Some supplements contain ingredients that may help rebuild collagen and other vital connective tissues that decline with injury or normal wear/tear as your pet ages, directly related to joints, bones and muscles. Supplements may become even more vital if your pet has advanced joint decline, such as arthritis or degenerative joint disease, is a senior pet or is a working dog or cat.
  6. Support a condition. If your pet experiences anxiety, your pet’s body produces excess cortisol and sends stress signals that can negatively affect every body system. An herb may help reduce the stress siren, calm and soothe each body system, may help enable your pet to remain calm and to reduce disease susceptibility from prolonged exposure to stress.
  7. Cost and longevity. Supplementing your pet’s health throughout their lifetime can result in lower overall vet costs. Also, long term studies have been conducted which show how long term use of an adaptogen plant and antioxidant such as Camu Camu, may support longevity, resulting in a potential for a longer life span and improved quality of life for your pet.
  8. Address the unknown. Supplements can help address the unknown and give you peace of mind because you don’t always know if your pet has a dietary deficiency or an undiagnosed disease. Herbs provide critical vitamins, minerals, oils, enzymes and more PLUS primary and secondary metabolites, which may help build your pet's natural defense system, may help address deficiency and support performance in the animal body. .
  9. Alternatives to synthetic, pharmaceutical drugs. Natural supplements may help address the root health problem instead of suppressing symptoms. Synthetic drugs tend to suppress symptoms, causing the symptoms to disappear, but the problem still exists! 
  10. Healthier and happier pets. Numerous studies show that supplements may help enable our pets to feel better, to thrive, and potentially live longer, healthier lives which benefits your entire pet family!
