diet of commercial pet foods puts excess strain on a
cats digestive system. Temperatures as low as
118 degrees F will deactivate most enzymes, requiring
the cats body to produce the extra enzymes it
needs for digestion.
Adding enzymes to your cats diet helps it process
the food faster, thus decreasing the strain on its body.
Think about how cats eat in the wild. When a cat kills
a mouse, it eats the whole mouse. The intestines, stomach,
pancreas of the mouse are rich in digestive enzymes.
The cat gets the benefit of these external enzymes in
helping to digest the meal it has just consumed. This
produces far less strain on the cats digestive
system. Studies have shown that animals in the wild
are healthier than their domesticated counterparts.
Much of this is attributed to eating a raw food source.
Enzymes have another important function: They increase
the transit time of food through the gastrointestinal
tract, moving food through the intestines faster. Why
is this an advantage?
When food is slowed in the intestines, it putrefies,
releasing toxins into the body. Slowed transit time
also caused the food to ferment, creating gaseous by-products
that cause unpleasant and unhealthful flatulence (gas).
Enzymes increase the nutrient availability of foods
and also decrease the toxic byproducts that result from
Benefits of Enzyme Supplementation:
Increases the bioavailabilty of nutrients
by helping to convert food into fuel the body
Increases transit time of food through
the gastrointestinal tract, thus decreasing toxic
Helps decrease the odor of feces
Helps cats that tend to vomit after
Improves skin and hair coat
Assists in recovery from surgery,
illness or injury
Many veterinarians have found enzyme
supplementation to be beneficial in immune and
disorders, cancer prevention,
joint disorders, poor skin and hair coat, excessive
and lethargy (low energy levels)
Daily supplementation with Healthy Feline Vitamins
provides excellent enzyme supplementation to help
your cat thrive.
