Here is a very important point.
means vitamins as found in natural foods. Untampered with in
any way that might change their molecular, their biological or biochemical
combinations, or their action. This usually means that only the fiber and
moisture are removed. All labels of truly NATURAL food concentrates should
indicate the exact food source from which the vitamin is obtained.
Synthetic: Means that in the
laboratory the scientist has reconstructed the exact structure of the
CRYSTALLINE molecule by "putting together" or chemically combining the
same molecules from other sources. Chemically, therefore, there is no
difference between the two. The Crystalline may have a slight advantage
in that it is difficult to reduce any natural product to an absolute pure
state and any impurities would be "synergists" hence giving a little added
value to the Crystalline over the Synthetic.
On the label for either Synthetic or
Crystalline only the chemical name of the single vitamin is usually
given. Legally it is not necessary to give the source from which the
synthetic chemical is derived.
The problem is that vitamins, when isolated or
man made in a factory are not in their original form (apples, oranges,
broccoli, spinach etc.) and they are merely chemicals. The body does not
recognize chemical vitamins as usable nutrients, because they don't work the
same way as whole foods.
Vitamins have been produced as commodity
chemicals and made widely available as inexpensive semi synthetic and
synthetic-source since the middle of the 20th century.
So by using a chemical man made vitamin this
will put an added stress on your pet’s body to try to assimilate the
chemically made substance.
So we ask:
Can your pets supplements make them sick.
Chemical supplement's can reverse what you are
trying to accomplish. Your so called natural pet vitamin in reality actually is
making things worse.
You have to stop focusing on RDA percentages,
and do not be concerned by the label wars. Your pet’s body knows the
difference between real whole food and fake chemicals, and it will always
prefer real food.
Foods contain more than just vitamins; they also
contain cofactors, enzymes and helper nutrients that allow vitamins to
Foods are never found in high potency, so your
pets body won't suffer any toxic side effects that have been proven to exist
with all chemical vitamin pills.
It is nearly impossible to overdose vitamins in
its original whole food form.
So when looking for a better nutritional
vitamin or pet food check the labels your pet will love you for it?
Poor Quality Food:
Many pet owners do not understand the
importance of carefully choosing the best food for their dog.
A raw food diet can help, but this is
not always convenience. So the next best thing is to first give your dog the
highest quality food that you can afford.
What is really in your pet food?
The modern pet food diet with some so called
premium brands, just meet minimum nutritional guidelines. Most of the foods
today consist primarily of poor quality protein with a lot of cereal grains
like corn, wheat and added gluten. It may not support your pet's optimum
performance, health or longevity.
Domestic dogs and cats are carnivores by nature.
Their ancestors lived off fresh meat rich in enzymes and complex nutrients.
They supplemented their food by eating grass and dirt which were teaming with
digestive aids that helped break down and process the food.
Dry and canned pet foods are void of essential
nutrients and digestive enzymes. With their relatively simple and short
digestive tracts require that they be fed the ancestral diet they naturally
selected over time, which is high in protein and low to moderate in fat and
almost no carbohydrate at all.
Your dog or cat does not have a metabolic
requirement for carbohydrate. Yet most pet foods contain as much as 50%
carbohydrate, way too much for good health.
The modern pet food provides plenty of calories
but the nutrient content may not be there for a healthy.
Many pet food companies will also add extra
vitamins to their food.
REALLY ARE THESE ADDED NUTRIENTS?
How does your pet food or vitamin label
read: Ascorbic Acid, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Cyanocobalamin USP,
Acetate, Thiamine Mononitrate or Wheat Germ, Acerola Cherry, Rose Hips, Carrot
SYNTHETIC AND CHEMICAL VITAMINS ARE
That is an important point. Because most pet
supplements called “whole food” are really combinations of real
foods and isolated or CHEMICAL or synthetic vitamins. Carefully read the labels
to see. Look for these words to identify;
Chemical or Made Made Vitamins on a label:
- Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine Hydrochloride
- Vitamin B1 Thiamine Hydrochloride
- Vitamin B3 Niacin or niacinamide
- Vitamin A (Palmitate)
- Ascorbic acid: learn how the average Vitamin
C supplement is made
- Vitamin E Mixed tocopherols( the white bread
of vit E ) fractionated vitamin.
- Vitamin E acetate also ( the white bread of
vit E ) fractionated vitamin.
- B12 Cyanocobalamin
- Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbate) (Ascorbyl
Furthermore, and most importantly, synthetic
vitamins are not really vitamins at all. They are fractions of vitamins. For
example, natural vitamin C is whole and complete, but ascorbic acid, which is
the vitamin C used in most supplements, is missing Rutin, Bioflavonoids and the
"J and K" factors. Because these vital nutrient cofactors are missing, the
supplement will actually "rob" the missing elements from bodily tissues and
Thus, taking vitamins other than all-natural
whole-food vitamins can actually create a vitamin deficiency in your pets
Man made chemical vitamins are not foods, so
instead of vitamins and minerals on a label, you should be looking for the
names of foods and herbs on the label. Don’t be fooled by high
milligrams, high potency, standardization or any other such terms that just do
not apply to real foods from nature.
Here’s a hint of how to ensure
you’re buying healthy all natural, whole-food vitamins. Read the label,
and look for ingredient names that are from natural foods or plants. Names such
as wheat germ, brewer’s yeast, green pepper, orange peel, rose hips,
safflower oil, acerola cherry, shiitake mushroom, alfalfa, black strap molasses
dunaliella salina, wild yam, carrot, rice bran, chickweed, wheat grass, amla,
barley grass, nettles, algae, kelp, pine park, grape seed extract, turmeric,
The only supplement that someone should give
their pet or their family, therefore, is a whole food formula WITHOUT any
isolated or synthetic man made vitamins.
Just saying a vitamin is natural is very
misleading. An automobile can be labeled all natural because all the parts of
that car came from the earth, the steel, rubber, plastics and even the gasoline
that runs it at one point came from the earth. Comparing gasoline to a
supplement may not be that far of a stretch. Petroleum, coal tar and petroleum
by-products are rearranged molecularly in the laboratory and are turned into
synthetic vitamins like Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Cyanocobalamin USP, Acetate,
Thiamine Mononitrate, and ascorbic acid.
pet food is bad; there are many pet food companies that really put out the
effort to make a good food. Be the educated consumer and know what you are
giving your precious family member (your pet).
We have found though natural pet vitamins are
few and far between. They have not caught up with the food industry.
Instead of giving your pet a less superior food
then supplementing with a pet vitamin that is most likely a chemical.
Try to find the best food you can and give your
pet digestive enzymes so the food will digest properly and your pet will get
the most nutrition out of the food.
Taking a supplemental with probiotics and enzyme
can help take stress off not only their digestive organs, but also your pet's
