Antioxidants for my pets?

Antioxidants for my pets?
written by Deb D’Andrea –

Many people reassess how they eat during springtime, with several of my friends having done or currently doing a Cleanse since the New Year.  Now is also a good time to take a hard look at what you’re feeding your pets to help ensure they are receiving the best food possible for good health, including antioxidants.

Antioxidants you question, for my pet?

As with us, antioxidants play a similar role in our pet’s longevity and overall health.  They help fight free radicals, of which some free radicals can cause permanent damage at a cellular level.  Cancer, stroke, heart disease, type II diabetes and joint problems are a few diseases associated with damage caused by free radicals.  By incorporating some fruits, vegetables and herbs into our pet’s diet we can boost our pet’s natural ability to heal, helping them to fight the affects of free radicals.

It’s best to always use a high quality product; and for our pets, it’s essential to use products made for them which have the correct and safe dosage.  There are several great products on the market you can easily add to your pets diet to help boost their natural system.  Along with supplements you can add, my girls enjoy raw yummy blueberries, carrots, and gently steamed broccoli which are some of the fruits and vegetables that help fight free radicals.

When selecting an antioxidant product, other compounds to look for are Ashwagandha or Indian Ginseng, Bacopa, Bilberry, Green Tea, Milk Thistle, Quercetin, Resveratrol, Turmeric Root and Vitamins A, C, and E, along with Beta Carotene.  Do not purchase these items individually and give to your pet because your pets systems are very different than ours and require a much different dosage.

It is best to research and select a quality antioxidant product to enhance your pet’s life for health and longevity.  There are many great products on the market now, and many are available online for easy shipment straight to your house.  So, be healthy!
