Marine Extract / How Dogs and Cats Benefit from Marine Extracts

Marine Extracts for Dogs and Cats

Herbal nutrition that are derived from marine extracts which may help benefit animal wellness.

Nutrition plays a major role in bone, teeth, skin and coat health and is the result of a well-functioning, synchronized effort by the immune systems and tissues and organs in the body.

Plant botanicals support the process of free radical scavenging, the skin’s ability to withstand the effects of environmental exposure to toxins, antigens and microorganisms by maintaining proper liver, adrenal, immune, and intestinal function; protect the skin and connective tissues in the joints, reduce inflammation in the joints, acidify urine, improve immune function and build resistance to allergies.

Marine extracts contain a variety of constituents to help support animal health and wellness, and include micronutrients and macroscopic and multi-cellular seaweeds (red, green and brown), algae, Omega 3 fatty acids, natural phytochemicals, macro and micro trace minerals, collagen, elastin and cartilage.

It is important to stipulate that Natura Petz marine extracts are not standardized, and therefore, contain no chemical additives or preservatives.

Marine extracts are also rich in flavonoids, polyphneols, prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, secondary metabolites and minerals like copper, zinc and iron, which work to moisture and hydrate skin, coat and mucous membrans, particularly useful for pets with any type of allergy or disorder related to scratching, itching and red or patchy skin.

Pets who use marine extracts often exhibit soft, smooth skin and rich, supple coats. The high mineral content may also stimulate blood flow throughout the body, boost immunity and support healthy digestion and cellular function as well as acts as a natural anti-inflammatory that lubricates joints and connective tissues. 

Other health benefits may include cardiovascular, circulatory and glandular support, often used holistically as an adjunctive support fo all types of heart disease, and Cushing’s and Lyme regimens. Marine extracts are also used widely for all types of arthritis, as a pain reliever, as well as a variety of dermal conditions related to rash, acne, psoriasis and eczema in dogs and cats.

Seaweed is a powerful ingredient as it draws an extraordinary wealth of mineral elements from the sea that can account for up to 36% of its dry mass. Mineral content includes sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, chlorine, sulfur and phosphorus; the micronutrients include iodine, iron, zinc, copper, selenium, molybdenum, fluoride, manganese, boron, nickel and cobalt.

Other plant and marine extract constituents include essential oils, amino acids, digestive enzymes, carbohydrates and proteins. Brown iodine contains the highest content of iodine, with dry kelp following. Bladder wrack is s seaweed that has a high amount of vitamin C. All seaweeds are classified as powerful anti-oxidants, and may be useful in helping to prevent disease and potentially as anti-aging resources. Researchers at the University of Ohio found that brown algae applied topically and orally not only reduced inflammation, more importantly it reduced the number of skin tumors on hairless mice by up to 60 percent and their size by up to 43 percent.

Shark cartilage is one of the most in demand products for joint and connective tissue care for animals with any type of arthritis or related joint pain. Although its mode of action is accepted by established medical principles, the mechanism, or combination of elements responsible for triggering that action, remains a mystery. In Peru, sharks are commonly used in seafood dishes, including ceviche and are an important part of the cultural diet. Sharks are not unscrupulously de-finned in Peru as they are in other areas of the world. As a result of public outcry against shark cartilage, Natura Petz will begin introducing new products such as calcium coral and sacha inchi, which provide potential, similar health benefits to shark cartilage.

Shark cartilage has been attributed with alleged cancer-fighting abilities (and currently under clinical trials by the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] on terminally ill cancer patients in New Jersey). Shark cartilage has become a widely accepted means for treating less fatal degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
