Given proper nutrition, the animal’s body has an amazing ability to heal itself. To do so, they need to eat a healthier diet, exercise and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply their bodies with nutrients they are not getting from their diet—all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.
Foundational support is important for health. Good nutrition is the key to health. The body cannot exist without food and water. More importantly, the quality of nutritional value of the foods that are eaten greatly affects health. Each veterinary formula is a unique combination of whole foods, Protomorphogen and Cytosol brand extracts, tissue concentrates, and botanicals. Ingredient combinations were selected for their physiological benefit and individualized for each species based on specific factors associated with targeted organs, glands, and other tissues.
Not all Supplements are the same. Many contain a host of isolated nutrients in high amounts. Scientists suspect that nutrients taken outside of the whole food context may not be as effective in promoting health as eating whole food. Whole foods, on the other hand, offer essential nutrients, both known and unknown, that are needed to support health. It is, therefore, important to offer your patients foundational support made with whole food and other ingredients that contain many of the known and unknown nutrients found in food.
