Dr Mercola Antioxidants for Pets
One thing is for certain: Our pets’ healthy lives are far too short.
Dogs and cats age exponentially compared to us, and on top of that, many pet owners make simple mistakes that can hasten their pet’s rate of cellular aging even further.
Factors like eating a commercially prepared processed diet, drinking chlorinated or fluoridated water, exposure to toxins in the home and outdoors, and excessive vaccinations lead to the production of free radicals that can damage healthy cells and tissues and contribute to faster cellular aging.
One of the most important things you can do to help protect your pet from oxidative free radical damage is to make sure they receive adequate antioxidants each day. Antioxidants help gobble up and neutralize free radicals in your pet’s body before they can damage your pet’s brain, heart and other organs.
Research shows that by supplementing antioxidants, you can increase the level of circulating antioxidants in your pet’s bloodstream and help protect cellular materials from oxidative damage. This plays a key role against the effects of excessive cellular aging.
Don’t expect commercial diets to provide the high-quality antioxidants your pet needs for a long, healthy life. Food manufacturers typically add synthetic antioxidants to their products to help preserve the ingredients, not to meet your pet’s antioxidant needs.
