Our Internal Powder is a yeast-free formula that helps to promote and strengthen the body's resistance to parasites like fleas, ticks and other biting insects. We avoid the use of yeast in the Internal Powder because of issues so many dogs and cats have with that ingredient and instead rely on organic garlic and herbs that are high in thiamine (B1) and pyridoxine (B6) that act as natural insect control. The B vitamins - thiamine (B1) and pyridoxine (B6) - are the ingredients in yeast that provide the primary insect repellency. We replicate that action with the organic herbs found in this formula.
Formulated by a certified Master Herbalist, with USDA organic herbs, the ingredients in our Internal Powder have been shown to be effective natural insect controls and will also help to strengthen the skin, cleanse the blood, provide valuable nutrients and alkalize the system. This formula will help to promote a dog or cat with healthier blood and skin that has a taste biting insects dislike. Our Internal Flea and Tick Powder will help prevent the itching and inflammation associated with flea and other insect bites in a natural and safe way.
What to Look for in a Superior Flea and Tick Powder:
✓ 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 formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or have been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ 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.
✓ Uses 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".
✓ Uses 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.
