Today, mainstream medicine and veterinarian medicine have become more aware of the harmful effects of free radicals, and doctors are suggesting that supplements should be taken daily.
The NuVet Labs™ research team started with the premise that even the most expensive pet food available is lacking in basic nutrients essential for proper cell support and longevity. It is a fact that some of the ingredients in pet food produce free radicals or unstable oxygen molecules which causes oxidation of the cells and subsequent mutation and death of the cells. Our pets' counterparts in the wild eat a much more balanced diet consisting of green vegetables, fruits, nuts and other nutrients that contain antioxidants that are required for the proper maintenance of health.
Recent studies have shown free radicals to be implicated in the cause of more than 50 diseases including heart disease, various forms of cancer, cataracts, and premature aging. Free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules that, according to research, can hit each cell in the body 10,000 times each day. As these free radicals constantly hit the cell membrane, it starts to break down and become weak. This weakness will eventually lead to cell mutation or death of the cell. Thereby, attacking the healthy parts of the body and degrading the immune system.
Antioxidants are vitamins, minerals and enzymes that protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals. Antioxidants, which have healing properties are found in certain vitamins and foods. The body manufactures a defense against free radicals in the form of antioxidants. However, there are more free radicals actively destroying the cell membrane than our body can defend against. This is where the powerful antioxidants in NuVet Plus™ step in to assist the natural defense mechanism of the bodies. When NuVet Plus™ is introduced into the body, there is a boosting of the immune system and a decrease in the ravages of free radicals.
We can help our animals protect against free radicals by supplementing their diet with NuVet Plus™, the product that is formulated to be the most powerful antioxidants available.
Most humans are aware of the destructive power of free radicals and are now taking antioxidants, either in supplement form or by eating the proper types of food. Our pets deserve to have their physiological defenses strengthened so they too, may receive the beneficial effects of a potent supplement--NuVet Plus™.
