The Critical Nutrient Most Dog Foods Are Missing
It’s a bittersweet moment when it hits you that your best 4-legged friend is getting older.
Maybe you notice a lack of energy and playfulness. Or scratching at patches of dry, flakey skin and increased shedding. Or maybe your dog or cat struggles to jump onto a favorite chair and looks to you for help with those trusting eyes that say, “Please do something!”
I got that look from my dog Charlie often when he started to feel his age. He wasn’t sick, but it was clear he wasn’t himself. And he knew who to turn to.
After all, Charlie has been part of our family ever since my wife, two sons and I brought him home from the rescue shelter. He was always the first to leap into the car for a ride – always eager to romp and play.
So when he began hesitating by the open door, his eyes told the story.
Please do something!
You want to help. And today, you can.
You don’t have to sit by helplessly as aging takes its toll. In my research on Charlie’s behalf, I discovered how one essential nutrient famous for its human benefits can have the same amazing power to bring out the tail-wagging or purring “youngster” in your pet again.
Certainly, one of the biggest problems our dogs and cats face as they grow older is one we know very well ourselves, body-wide inflammation, which can impact vital organs such as the heart, brain and kidneys as well as joints and skin.
In fact, new 2015 research shows that joint issues among both dogs and cats has increased some 30% since 2010.
Simply put: Inflammation can turn your beloved pet’s senior years into a painful ordeal.
Thankfully, one family of nutrients — omega-3 fatty acids — stands out for its ability to promote a healthy inflammatory response in dogs and cats.
Omega-3s Are as Important for Your Pet as They Are for You
That’s right! The omega-3s DHA and EPA deliver great health benefits for your pet – from improving their coat and supporting their heart to nourishing their brain and reducing inflammation all over.
But here’s the rub: Just like humans, most dogs and cats do not get enough omega-3s from their diet to meet their optimal nutrition needs. The fact is, the corn and soy-fed meats and farm-raised fish found in typical pet food — even “premium” organic, grain-free pet foods — don’t contain omega-3s the way that “prey in the wild” would provide.
As a result, your pet may be missing out on a nutrient that holds the key to aging in comfort. Because of its far-reaching anti-inflammatory benefits, many experts believe that ample omega-3s for dogs and cats can do a world of good to…
- Support a healthy heart and cardiovascular system
- Keep pets mentally sharp, alert and playful
- Promote a healthy inflammatory response and relieve joint aches and pains
- Support eye health
- And even keep their coats looking vibrant and beautiful
To help Charlie in his advancing years I needed to learn more, so I turned to my friend Dr. Katy Nelson at the Belle Haven Animal Medical Centre in Alexandria, VA for her expert advice.
You may have seen Dr. Nelson on the Today show, Fox & Friends or The Meredith Vieira Show, or heard her on SiriusXM radio. She’s a leader among today’s new wave of veterinarians who advocate safe, natural solutions for pets whenever possible.
If anyone has the knowledge and experience to help, it’s Dr. Nelson. She confirmed that getting enough omega-3s is indeed the #1 critical nutrient deficiency for dogs and cats of all ages that she commonly sees in her clinic. And to my delight, she didn’t stop there.
Other Key Nutrients Also Fight Harmful Inflammation
You see, omega-3s aren’t the only “super-nutrients” that help fight inflammation and its damage. Dr. Nelson also recommended:
- Hyaluronic acid, which helps maintain the cushioning cartilage in joints and replenish the synovial fluid that lubricates them. Hyaluronic acid helps your pets’ knees and other joints absorb the stresses of an active daily life.
- Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant extracted from algae shown to be incredibly effective against free radicals that trigger inflammation and joint breakdown
- Vitamins A, C, and E, the well-known antioxidants that support vision, promote immune health, and neutralize harmful free radicals
Needless to say, you won’t find more than a sprinkling of these nutrients in typical pet foods, even premium brands, if you find them at all. Most pet foods provide only the bare minimum nutrition you dog or cat truly needs.
But now you can give your pets all the benefits of these age-fighting breakthroughs — in a way that’s enjoyable for them and easy for you.
How to Optimize Your Pet’s Nutrition in One Simple Step
You see, in addition to my work with Live in the Now, I also run Stop Aging Now, a company that has produced premium-quality nutritional supplements for more than 20 years.
With Charlie in mind, I worked with Dr. Nelson to develop a 100% natural omega-3 treat that would provide dogs and cats with these essential fatty acids and other key health-boosting nutrients.
I certainly wasn’t about to cut any corners that would shortchange Charlie and jeopardize his health. So I followed Dr. Nelson’s advice to a T.
The result is called Charlie’s Choice ProMega3 PLUS™. It’s a delicious, once-a-day treat brimming with premium-quality omega-3s together with hyaluronic acid, astaxanthin and vitamins A, C, and E — all in the ample levels recommended by Dr. Nelson to provide potent support for your dog or cat.
For a limited time, Live in the Now readers can get ProMega3 PLUS for as low as $14.95 per bottle plus free shipping. Click here to take advantage of this special offer.
A Natural Way to Keep Your Pet Healthier and Happier
I’m proud to say that ProMega3 PLUS raises the bar to new heights in the field of pet nutritional supplements. That’s because it’s made to the same exacting standards as all of our Stop Aging Now supplements, using the very same “human-grade” nutrients.
And unlike so many pet foods and treats, ProMega3 PLUS is produced in a state-of-the-art FDA-inspected facility, so there’s no question about its superior quality, purity and potency.
As I saw it, I was going the extra mile to help Charlie continue to run, jump and play as a vital member of our family. Because each cheese-flavored ProMega3 PLUS treat provides a potent daily boost that includes:
- 1,000 mg of premium-grade fish oil. It’s rich with omega-3 fatty acids including extra-strength doses of EPA and DHA, the most beneficial omega-3s of all.
- 15 mg of natural hyaluronic acid (HA). This is the same HA you’d get in our human joint supplements, only now your dog or cat will enjoy the greater comfort and flexibility.
- An antioxidant blend of 1 mg astaxanthin, 10 IU of vitamin E, 50 mg of vitamin C and 500 IU of vitamin A to neutralize free radicals that accelerate aging in dogs and cats, just as they do in people.
See the Difference Omega-3s Can Make with Your Own Two Eyes
If your pet is already feeling the everyday aches, pains and loss of friskiness of advancing age, the turnaround in activity levels and contentment can be heartwarming as the weeks and months go by. Just imagine how great you’ll feel when once again you see:
- Eyes that sparkle with contentment and affection
- More tail-wagging, purring and joyful interactions with you and your family
- Greater ease getting up and down stairs and into cars
- Increased interest in daily routines like grooming
- A shinier, fuller coat that glistens with health
Just as important are the benefits you don’t see, because the nutrients in ProMega3 PLUS provide powerful cardiovascular, brain and immune system health support that will help keep your pet fit as the years go by.
The playfulness, the contentment, and the companionship you treasure — you don’t have to let it go without a fight. ProMega3 PLUS can safely and naturally help support your pet’s lasting good health.
I feel confident in saying that ProMega3 PLUS lives up to this promise. And you can try it without risking a cent. You’re fully protected by Stop Aging Now’s 365-day “any reason” 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee, so why not see what it can do?
