Listed below are a few
of the NuVet PlusŪ ingredients that are beneficial for your pet
• Amino acids –
These immune system stimulants provide overall support to the body’s metabolism. Amino acids combine in a myriad of
ways to form hundreds of different proteins that, among other things, support and enhance immune system function. NuVet PlusŪ
contains all the amino acids essential to good health, including glutathione, an antioxidant that protects against toxins,
L-lysine, which helps to neutralize viruses, and L-methionine, a good source of sulfur, which inactivates free radicals. L-methionine
is very useful for allergy cases because it reduces the amount of histamine in the body. As levels of toxic substances and
allergens in an animal’s system increase, the body requires more L-methionine to combat the effects of that increase,
such as excessive tearing.
• Beta carotene (Vitamin
A) –This valuable antioxidant synergizes with Vitamin C to support skin and immune system and mucous membrane
health to protect the body against invading microorganisms, allergens and inhaled toxins. Vitamin A is particularly important
to eye health. Healthy eyes resist infection.
• Blue green algae –
Blue green algae, one of nature’s most basic foods, is an excellent source of chlorophyll, which acts as a detoxifier
and blood cleanser, and sulfolypids, which resist viruses. This ingredient contains numerous trace minerals and more
protein than any other whole food; it strengthens the immune system, aids in wound healing and boosts the production of red
blood cells. By supporting an animal’s overall health, blue green algae boosts the body’s resistance against harmful
microorganisms, toxins and allergens.
• Brewer’s yeast –
A rich source of B complex vitamins, brewer’s yeast contains the trace mineral chromium and a high quality protein that
supports skin health and aids in tissue formation and the assimilation of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Assimilation of
this substance into an animal’s system also creates an environment hostile to fleas, thus preventing infestations that
can affect the eyes and cause excessive tearing. When an infestation is present around the eyes, flea feces discolor the tears
and cause tear staining on the affected animal’s face.
• Chicken liver –
Chicken liver is a rich source of the B complex vitamins that support overall health by fighting inflammation and boosting
immunity, thus supporting proper nutrient absorption, minimizing damage from contact allergen reactions and strengthening
the body against the development of tear-producing allergies in the first place. Like Vitamin C, it also reduces the deleterious
effects of stress on the body. NuVet PlusŪ paddle-dries its chicken liver to more effectively retain Vitamin B complex, Vitamins
A and C, and important omega fatty acids.
• Pine bark –
Pine bark contains proanthocyanidids which, as anti-oxidants, are 20 times more effective than Vitamin C and 50 times more
effective than Vitamin E. Pine bark possesses the ability to minimize any potential damage from cell oxidation by seeking
out and destroying free radicals, and like L-methionine, reduces the release of histamine.
• Vitamin B complex (which
contains folic acid) and Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) – These important vitamins support healthy vision.
