Dr. Mercola Pet Digestive Enzymes
Digestive enzymes can support optimal health in your pet. The natural, animal-based enzymes found in Dr. Mercola Pet Digestive Enzymes work in the stomach and intestines to break down the food that your pet eats.
Digestive enzymes do more than just unlock the vitamins and minerals in your pet's food; enzymes also contribute to enhanced immune support, healthy cell support and growth, natural detoxification, and improved blood circulation.
In the wild, animals like dogs and cats thrive on a diet of raw meat, including organ meat, and bones. They get plenty of natural enzymes to help them maintain proper health. Today our pets do not eat like their wild ancestors did, most of our pets eat processed kibble or canned foods that contain grains. Production of commercial pet foods requires very high temperatures, which destroys any enzymes naturally present in your pet's food.
Even pets consuming a raw food diet can benefit from additional enzyme supplementation, as most raw food diets do not contain organ meat- a rich source of naturally occurring digestive enzymes.
The enzymes present in Dr. Mercola Digestive Enzymes for Pets:
- • Betaine HCl - breaks down proteins into peptides and amino acids and fats into triglycerides
- • Ox Bile Extract – safely used for many years in human and pet enzyme products to support the liver's production of bile and offer supplemental bile for bile-deficient pets, critical for digesting fats
- • Bromelain (pineapple) – one of the safest and most powerful enzymes to help break down and digest protein
- • Papain (papaya) – a natural plant-sourced enzyme that works together with bromelain to digest protein
- • Pancreatin– an animal-based pancreatic enzyme providing all three of these enzymes:
- Protease – helps break down proteins into amino acids for digestion
- Amylase – for splitting and breaking down long-chain carbohydrates, including starch and glycogen (the energy-storage molecule in animal tissue) for digestion in the small intestine
- Lipase – helps break down and digest fats
To improve digestion, reduce abdominal bloating and gas, reduce bad breath, and treat vomiting:
Supplement with Digestive Enzymes at mealtime. When given with food, the enzymes will go to work; breaking down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. This digestive assistance allows for better assimilation of the nutrients present in your pet's food.
To improve overall health and well-being:
Supplement with Digestive Enzymes after meals. When enzymes are given outside of meal time, they work systemically for metabolic purposes; stimulating immune support, cell growth, and natural detoxification in your pet.
