Top 10 Ways Supplements Can Help Your Dog

Herbs, super foods, super fruits, marine extracts and supplements do a lot more than build nutritional layers into your dog's diet. They also can help provide powerful antioxidant tools to help fight disease and help address conditions that commonly undermine health in our pets.

  1. Balance the immune system. Balanced immunity is like armor for your pet’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 is an herb which can help support balanced immunity and digestive health.
  2. Support digestion. Supplements may help support balanced digestion. Immunity resides primary in the gut and proper digestive health enables your pet’s body to absorb nutrients. If immunity is compromised, your pet can experience digestive upset, poor nutrition (even if you feed premium food!) and open the pathway for disease. A suggested product is Tummy Gladiator.
  3. Build resistance. Supplements can help provide a defense against common threats to your pet’s health including fleas, ticks, chronic urinary tract infections, allergies, stones, irregular tissue and more. Sangre de Grado is a great herb that can be added to all diets to help build resistance to conditions. 
  4. Fight infection. Many herbs naturally help fight infection. For example, Camu Camu is a water and fat soluble antioxidant, which may help build resistance against bacteria, viruses, colds and infection, plus it may help support bone, joint, connective tissue, eye, teeth, skin and coat health.
  5. Reduce wear and tear. Supplements can help maintain joint and connective tissue health. Some herbs can help rebuild collagen, directly related to joints, bones and muscles which is critical if your pet has arthritis, is immuno-compromised, is a senior pet or working dog or cat. Joint Ease is a wonderfully responsive joint supportive product to add to your dog's daily health regimen.
  6. Support a conditional need. If your pet experiences anxiety, your pet’s body produces excess cortisol and sends stress signals that negatively affect every body system. An herb can help reduce the stress siren, calm and soothe each body system, enable your pet to remain calm and may help reduce disease susceptibility from prolonged exposure to stress. Serenity Zen is a wonderful nutritional daily support to add to your dog's diet to help reduce all types of stress and anxiety response. 
  7. Cost and longevity. Supplementing your pet’s health throughout their lifetime can result in lower overall vet costs and improved quality of life. Also, long term studies have been conducted which show how long term use of an antioxidant super food and herb such as Camu Camu may help support longevity, resulting in more time 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 under diagnosed condition. Herbs may help provide critical vitamins, minerals, fatty and amino acids, digestive enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics and fiber plus they are packed with primary and secondary metabolites, which may help address deficiency and support balance throughout your pet's body systems. Remember, body system balance is key to health, wellness and likely, disease presentation. 
  9. Alternatives to synthetic, pharmaceutical drugs. Natural supplements may work to 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! Herbs, super foods, fruits, marine extracts, seeds and alternative proteins like Cricket Powder help provide two layers of nutritional and natural healthy phytochemical support, resulting in a potentially powerful health boost. 
  10. Healthier and happier pets. Numerous studies prove that supplements help enable our pets to feel better, to thrive, and potentially live longer, healthier lives which benefits your entire pet family! Consider our Hemp Heart Treats in Calming, Joint and Immune Support as a nutritional and beneficial wellness addition to your pet's daily health regimen.
