Our Herbal Digestive Tonic is a wonderful digestive aid that can really help improve digestion and reduce inflammatory conditions within the digestive tract. It uses organic herbal bitters tinctured in a menstruum of organic apple cider vinegar to stimulate gastric and intestinal digestive juice secretions and also increase the secretion of bile from the liver and gallbladder. The result of this stimulation of digestion is the better break down of proteins, fats and carbohydrates leading to better assimilation of nutrients, less gas and bloating, better breath, fewer allergies and the correction of inflammatory bowel issues. In addition, while helping to acidify the digestive tract to improve digestion, this formula will help to alkalize the whole body as an end result because of its rich mineral content.
What to Look for in a Superior Herbal Digestive Tonic:
✓ Whole Food Ingredients
Our dogs and cats utilize nutrients much more easily from whole foods. Their bodies easily recognize the food, break it down and then metabolize the nutrients. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients found in most other supplements that the body does not easily recognize and require more energy to utilize. This is especially hard on the liver and kidneys and a majority of the synthetic substances wind up being eliminated in the urine. In addition, synthetic vitamins and minerals can have more of a drug effect on the body, which is why toxicity issues can result from their misuse.
✓ Organic Ingredients
Our multivitamin formula contains organic ingredients. Herbs and other foods grown organically have been shown to have higher amount of important nutrients. They are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides, fungicides and other chemicals that conventionally grown ingredients can have.
✓ No Unhealthy Additives
Our formula is made with all-natural, whole food ingredients. Absent are the fillers that increase packaging bulk and "flow agents" that make manufacturing faster and easier. Ingredients we avoid, but many of our competitors do not, include lactose, magnesium stearate, maltodextrin, stearic acid, calcium stearate, scorbyl palmitate, silicon dioxide, and microcrystalline cellulose among others.
✓ Use only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Use Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.
