We know our dogs need vitamins, minerals and trace elements for their daily health and well being. Did you know about Synthectic vs Natural Vitamins and the health impacts?
Much of the pet food (and human food!) sold in stores, barely resembles what dogs, cats and even our ancestors for that matter had been eating for thousands of years. Is it no surpise that auto-immune disorders, food allergies, and growing epidemics of diseases are on the rise?. So if "modern pet food" is improving ....why are diseases on the increase?
Our pets don’t know what they're ingesting. If they can’t find the nutrients from food, they're begging you to eat constantly. Ever had crazy late-night cravings? They happen because your body is seeking more nutrients., same goes for our pets!
Since food is no longer as nutritionally dense, we need to fill in the gaps with vitamins. So now there is an abundance of synthetic vitamins being sold but how many actually know the difference between synthetic & natural? Here's a start...
Synthetic vitamins are made from chemicals to mimic the natural way your body absorbs nutrients from food.
NOT as bioavailable as whole food vitamins
NOT absorbable or usable
NOT what we find in natural foods
NOT recognizable to the body
These “virtually identical” vitamins are hard on the kidneys and are often treated as toxins. Recent studies even tie synthetic vitamins to an increased risk of cancer.
Synthetic Vitamins can't be excreted easily.
The body excretes excess natural vitamins, while synthetic vitamins get stored in the liver as substances that can be toxic to the body.
Synthetic vitamins contain a high concentration of the chemical that mimic natural vitamins. Dogs get a higher dosage of these vitamins than those obtained from natural food sources. These are stored in the body which can be dangerous because a buildup of chemicals the body can’t excrete can eventually cause diseases.
Synthetic Vitamins Don’t Contain Trace Minerals
Natural vitamins come with various enzymes, minerals, lipids, protein, and other nutrients to help the body digest and utilize them. Synthetic vitamins are isolated forms of those they are mimicking.</p>
Unlike organic vitamins obtained from food which contain trace minerals and other nutrients, clinically-made vitamins do not contain any other nutrient
Synthetic Vitamins Eventually Become Toxic
Fat-soluble vitamins, like vitamins A, D, E, and K, need fatty acids to be absorbed properly by the body. When taken through natural food sources, the body can metabolize them and excess excreted accordingly.</p>
Synthetic forms of these vitamins are made in high concentrations. Since they’re isolated and contain no fatty lipids for proper processing by the body, they are stored in the liver.
Over time, these excess vitamins build up in the liver and eventually become toxic to the body.
Food containing minerals, nutrients, and enzymes to help metabolize synthetic vitamins so ulitimately they need a natural food nutrients!
