As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh meats, fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day. Americans are overfed and undernourished.
We eat plenty but we are still starving. The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with the nutrition it needs to survive and be healthy. We are starving our bodies and we are sick. We suffer from diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, and the list goes on and on.
This is true for humans and 10 fold for our pets. There is even less governmental regulation on our pet food. The marketing of a commercial pet food can easily mislead a consumer into buying the product, thinking they are getting quality nutrition and they are not.
There is good news. Given proper nutrition, the body has an amazing ability to heal itself. If properly fed and given the right nutrients, the body is designed to repair itself. To do so, we need to feed our pets a healthier diet, exercise, and give them high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet, all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.
Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods for use in supplements. When processed correctly, they supply a multitude of the plant’s components. Foods provide nutrients that work synergistically. They work together to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health.
At Creature Comforts Veterinary, we recommend Standard Process Veterinary Whole Food Supplements.
