The primary purpose of enzymes:
Digestive enzymes in supplement form is to
enhance the enzymes available in raw food, and replace those enzymes lost when
food is cooked or processed.
In addition, supplementation enables more
digestion to begin in the gastric region, easing the burden on the digestive
system as a whole.
The earlier that digestion can begin, the
greater the likelihood that no undigested food will enter the colon where
bacteria can feed upon it, causing such problems as gas and bloating.
Every pet can benefit from supplementation with
Even healthy pets may improve their absorption and
utilization of nutrients through the use of digestive enzymes.
When enzymes are missing from our pets food, the
full burden of digestion falls on the pets own digestive system and pancreas.
This also can affect their immune system.
Taking a supplemental with vegetarian enzymes like
Total-Zymes can help take stress off not only their digestive organs, but also
our pet's immune system. This helps with food allergies in pets.
Always check the labels: some enzyme products
put beet root fiber in their formula as a
filler. But yet they say they use no fillers read the label.
This is an
controversial ingredient that is made from sugar beets and put into dog
products as a fiber filler. Avoid supplements with Beet root
Total-Zymes® use beet root
juice not fiber. The beet root juice in the product is not from sugar beets and
supports the liver and the digestion process. We would never use
Beet Root Fiber!
Probiotics are linked to long life
A Large breed pet weighing 65-70 pounds
needs up to 1.5 pounds of beneficial bacteria in its gut to protect against
disease and illness!
Without good bacteria, a pet's body would
be unable to fight off disease, absorb food properly, and their intestines
become overrun with toxins and waste, which set the breeding ground for
Unfortunately, every time your pet drinks
chlorinated water, eat fatty foods, get stressed or become overly tired, good
bacteria is destroyed in their bodies.
Even the pet foods we feed our pets to keep them
healthy, like meat and poultry can contain antibiotics, further reducing the
levels of good bacteria.
For most pets this means they are negatively
affecting their bodies' ability to stay healthy on a daily basis.
So the answer is your pets need probiotics and
enzymes every day.
