Can Supplements Help With Skin Disease? Jul 28 2014
Treatment of skin diseases including allergic dermatitis, seborrhea and excess shedding should include supplementation with vitamins, fatty acids (Omega 3 & 6), zinc, and in some cases, enzymes, to help restore good health to the skin and hair coat.
OptaGest is a complete digestive supplement with high levels of active ingredients and NO inactive ingredients such as fillers, sugars or preservatives to further upset sensitive systems. The four plant-based enzymes help process fats, fiber, carbohydrates and protein, easing the burden placed on the digestive system. The PreBiotic, Fructooligosaccharide (FOS), provides food for the native intestinal bacteria. Naturally occurring bacteria are an important GI system component in keeping your pet's digestive and immune systems healthy.
The enzymes in OptaGest assure proper digestion and absorption of nutrients throughout the entire digestive system:
Protease - provides protein digestion in the stomach and small intestine to build muscle. Aspergillus sourced protease is acid-stable to survive the low-pH of the gastric juices.
Amylase - digests starchy foods to release simple sugars for energy.
Cellulase - provides dogs and cats with the enzyme they lack to digest cellulose, reducing the bulking effect of fibrous foods.
Lipase - digests triglycerides and fatty acids allowing the pet to absorb Vitamins A, D, E and K and Omega-3 Fatty Acids (very helpful for pets eating food with Omega-3 Fatty Acids added or those taking fish oil supplements).
OptaGest contains the PreBiotic Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) at clinically-tested levels that work. FOS selectively helps good bacteria help thrive and crowds out the bad bacteria. Because all pets have different intestinal flora, adding FOS is a more natural, individualized way to address digestive health.
Made in USA.
