VITAMINS & MINERALS
Fresh, wholesome food provides dogs (as well as owners) with the best source of vitamins, organic substances required for normal functioning of the body. They are important in the conversion of calories to energy.
Minerals are inorganic nutrients that make up less than 1 percent of a dog’s body weight and are necessary for growth and maintaining strong bones/teeth. They are classified as either macro-minerals or micro-minerals (trace minerals) all of which serves important functions. Balance is critical when it comes to minerals as too much of one can interfere with the absorption of another.
* It is crucial to note that 2 of the macro-minerals, calcium (the most abundant mineral in the body) and phosphorus must be in balance and given in correct proportions. The ideal calcium:phosphorus ratio is between 1:1 and 2:1

MSM also alleviates symptoms of food and environmental allergies with its ability to bind to the muscosa, naturally blocking hosts and allergens. As your dog ages, its body produces less glucosamine which results in stiff joints with degrading cartilage. Glucosamine works with MSM to maintain the cartilage in the joints, improving mobility and slowing down the aging process of the joints. Glucosamine also helps with gut health by creating connective tissue and repairing mucous membranes that form the barrier of the gastrointestinal system, reducing inflammation and improving digestive track health.
