Paaws and Vitalife Canine Health Ingredients
Feature: Antioxidants including Vitamins A, C
and, E, along with the Minerals Selenium and Zinc and the nutrients
Alpha Lipoic Acid and Lutein.
Benefit: Your pet's body naturally contains many antioxidants that
work together, in a variety of ways to help protect and insure canine health.
Antioxidants neutralize harmful compounds called free radicals. Free
radicals are formed each time your dog takes a breath. Exposure to the
suns ultraviolet rays, environmental toxins, pollution, heavy metals,
stress, diet and drugs, including antibiotics, also contribute to
their production. Billions of free radicals are formed in your dog's
body each day. They cause Oxidative Stress, which damages your pet's
body; in much the same way that oxygen causes iron to rust. Free
radicals damage your dogs cells and can also adversely effect vital
tissues, organs and even DNA, their genetic material. These harmful
changes accumulate and have been proven to decrease the quality and
length of life. Antioxidant supplements can increase your pets healthy
life span and slow the aging process by providing the body with
additional defenses against free radicals and decreasing the resultant
levels of oxidative damage. Oxidative damage has been associated with
many of the leading age related degenerative diseases including
cancer, heart disease, liver and kidney disorders as well as arthritis
Feature: Vitamin A
Benefit: Vitamin A is an essential nutrient that acts as an
antioxidant. It is also necessary for good vision, proper bone
development and healthy skin.
Feature: Vitamin C
Benefit: Vitamin C is needed to regenerate and revitalize Vitamin
E. It is also essential to normal collagen formation. Collagen is an
integral part of the walls of blood vessels and is part of the matrix
of cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bones and skin.
Feature: Vitamin E
Benefit: Vitamin E is needed to regenerate and revitalize Vitamin
C. It is also important to help maintain the integrity of cell
membranes, which is essential for them to function normally.
Benefit: Selenium is an essential mineral, which is incorporated
into many vital enzymes in the body. Selenium also works with Vitamin
E as an antioxidant to help protect against free radical oxidative
Benefit: Zinc is an essential mineral and is a vital component of
several biochemical and enzymatic reactions in your dog's body. In
addition, zinc is needed to maintain the canine health and integrity of the
skin and hair coat.
Benefit: Lutein is a plant pigment, derived from marigolds, that
functions as an Antioxidant. It has been shown to play an important
role in maintaining vision, health of the eyes as well as a normally
functioning Immune System.
Benefit: Colostrum is the first milk your dog received from his
mother. It provides newborn puppies with substances called antibodies,
which are needed for protection during the first few months of life.
Colostrum is important to help maintain the canine health and normal
functioning of the immune system, which is the body's natural defense
against disease and infection.
Benefit: Glucosamine is an amino sugar made of molecules called
Glucosaminolglycans or "GAGS." Gags are found in almost
every tissue of the body including joints, tendons, ligaments,
cartilage, skin and blood vessels. Glucosamine is needed to maintain
normal joint fluid. Joint fluid surrounds the joints providing them
with important nutrients. It helps to lubricate and cushion the
joints, acting like a shock absorber during movement and insulating
the bones from friction. Glucosamine is necessary to maintain the
overall health and integrity of cartilage, bones and joints. It may
also enhance your dog's mobility and flexibility.
Feature: MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane)
Benefit: A unique organic form of sulfur that helps reduce
arthritic joint pain and acts together with Glucosamine to restore
normal joint function and integrity.
Benefit: A trace mineral needed for vital enzyme reactions and
proper bone development. It plays a key role in supporting the bodies
production of vital elements required to rebuild cartilage in damaged
Feature: Chromium Picolinate& Vanadyl
Benefit: These nutrients improve blood sugar metabolism, blood
lipid concentrations and reduce body fat. Together they act to
increase the body's sensitivity to the hormone insulin which reduces
the risk of diabetes.
Feature: Green Tea
Benefit:The Anti-oxidants in Green Tea may decrease the risk of
heart disease and protect the blood vessels that nourish the heart and
brain. The Epigallocatechin Gallate in green tea may also be cancer
Feature: B- Complex Vitamins
Benefit: These are critical cofactors necessary for energy
production. They are essential to metabolize proteins, carbohydrates
and fats. B-Complex Vitamins aid in the release of energy from foods
and help to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.
Feature: Panax Ginseng
Benefit: The root of this plant was used for centuries in Asia as a
strengthening tonic that rejuvenates and revitalizes the body. It also
maintains blood glucose levels, regulates blood pressure, strengthens
the cardiovascular system and boosts Immunity.
Benefit: L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body.
It is the major energy source for the cells that line the small
intestine of your dog's digestive track. It helps to energize the body
by aiding in the maintance of normal digestive system function.
L-Glutamine is a precursor to Glucosamine, which the body uses to
produce Glucosaminolglycans, (GAGS), as well as purine nucleotides,
which are constituents of your dogs genetic material, (DNA& RNA).
Feature: Digestive Enzymes
Benefit:Digestive enzymes are important to maintain overall health.
The body's production of enzymes naturally decreases with increasing
age. Proper supplementation of enzymes can enhance your dog's ability
to digest, absorb and utilize nutrients you feed him (or her), which
are essential for energy production and ultimately, for life itself.
Feature: Essential Fatty Acids: Linoleic Acid
Benefit: Linoleic Acid is an essential fatty acid, which helps to
maintain the canine health and normal function of the skin and hair coat. It
is also necessary for the normal structure, function and integrity of
your dog's heart and brain.
