Vitamins, Minerals and Amino Acids

Vitamins, Minerals and Amino Acids

Vitamins work together to support a healthy digestive system and minerals help maintain hip and joint health. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein.

Amino Acids

The building blocks of protein and essential for the cell functions that drive animal maintenance, growth and reproduction.

Beta Carotene

Reduces the risk of cataracts, of certain cancers and enhances immunity. Beneficial in blood sugar regulation, multiplying the effects of low-glycemic carbohydrates in the diet. Found in richly-coloured plants, fruits and vegetables.

Biotin

Also known as vitamin H. A vitamin that aids in maintaining hair and nails, and the nervous system. Required for metabolism of fats and amino acids, and important for a healthy coat and skin.

Calcium: Carbonate; Iodate; Pantothenate

A mineral necessary in blood clotting, muscle and nerve function, enzyme activation, and maintaining the structure of bones and teeth.

Choline Chloride

A source of choline, essential in proper nerve function and metabolism, and in the make-up of cell membranes.

Copper: Proteinate; Sulfate

Required for blood synthesis, bone formation, collagen production and plays the role of an antioxidant.

Dicalcium Phosphate

Provides calcium and phosphorous, minerals that work together for proper skeletal formation.

DL-Methionine

Essential amino acid for dogs and cats, important for skin and coat condition, and eye and heart health.

Folic Acid

Essential vitamin enabling cell replication, division and growth, and allowing red blood cells to mature in the bone marrow.

Inositol

Inositol is a vitamin considered beneficial for muscle and nerve function, particularly in the heart and brain.

Iodine

Mineral essential in forming the hormones of the thyroid gland which regulate metabolism, growth and development.

Iron: Proteinate; Ferrous Sulfate

Mineral that makes up part of the protein hemoglobin in the blood. Picks up oxygen from the lungs and delivers it throughout the body. Plays a role in various enzymes of the body, aiding in digestion and various bodily processes.

L-Carnitine

An amino acid that transports fatty acids to the body’s cells so they can convert them to energy for proper functioning. This role in fat transport supports optimal fat metabolism and helps control body weight.

Lecithin

Supports the health of all cells and the immune system, and enhances memory and orientation.

L-Lysine

A version of essential amino acid, important in making collagen, keratin and other body proteins. Important for growth and renewal.

Manganese:Oxide; Proteinate

Mineral required for carbohydrate and fat metabolism, optimal vitamin use, bone development, nerve transmission and blood sugar regulation.

Mixed Tocopherols

Also known as vitamin E, the antioxidant effects protects the body’s cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, and preserves food by preventing the breakdown of nutrients.

Niacin

Also known as vitamin B3, a vitamin required for the metabolism of all major nutrients, and for the growth and maturation of cells. Cannot be stored in the body, must be regularly consumed in the diet, widely found in meats.

Pantothenic Acid

Also known as vitamin B5, essential in metabolizing and making carbohydrates, proteins and fats, and is important for cell growth.

Phenolic Acid

A phytonutrient found in broccoli, parsley, tomatoes, flaxseed, whole grains and berries that reduces the risk of some cancers.

Potassium Chloride

Source of potassium, a mineral required for nerve and muscle function, energy metabolism, and the maintenance of the pH and concentrations of the body’s fluids.

Pyridoxine Hydrochloride

Source of pyroxidine, also known as vitamin B6. Involved in brain development, immune support, and a multitude of metabolic functions.

Riboflavin

Also known as vitamin B2, required for a wide variety of cellular processes and growth. It plays a key role in energy metabolism, and for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Contributes to skin and coat health.

Salt

Essential nutrient in pet foods. Known as sodium chloride, it is involved in proper muscle and nerve action; regulation of fluid intake, balance pH in the body; and food palatability. Major component of fluids important to the digestive process.

Sodium Selenite

Selenium plays a vital role in manufacturing the body’s antioxidant molecules for protection against damage caused by free radicals.

Taurine

An amino acid important for brain, heart, hearing and vision health in both dogs and cats, It has antioxidant effects. While dogs can synthesize their own amino acids in their bodies, cats cannot and must have them supplied in their diet.

Thiamine Mononitrate

Source of thiamine, also known as vitamin B1. Involved in converting carbohydrates to energy and in supporting a healthy central nervous system.

Vitamin A Supplement

Source of vitamin A, important for cell differentiation and in the maintenance of skin and tissues lining the respiratory, digestive and reproductive tracts. Contributes to a compound in the eye needed for sight when an animal adapts from light to dark. Essential for proper kidney function and normal development of bones, teeth and nerve tissue.

Vitamin B12 Supplement

Plays a vital role in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Helps maintain healthy cell growth and repair, and supports the immune system, brain function, and blood formation.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)

Required for wound healing, and capillary and mucosal integrity. Works to combine amino acids into the structural protein collagen and has powerful antioxidant effects.

Vitamin D3 Supplement

Source of vitamin D which stimulates calcium absorption from the intestines for the proper development and maintenance of bones and teeth.

Vitamin E Supplement

A source of vitamin E, vital for growth, immunity, and control of nerves, muscles and senses; it has antioxidant properties.

Vitamin K

Found in green leaves such as spinach, parsley and broccoli, and is vital to the blood clotting process.

Yeast Culture and Yeast Extract

Yeast culture and yeast extract is a source of vitamins and Mannan Oligosaccharides (MOS), a prebiotic that binds to harmful bacteria in the intestines, preventing them from attaching to and invading body cells.

Zinc: Oxide; Proteinate

Mineral involved in protein synthesis, metabolism of nutrients, and a healthy skin and coat.
