You enhance your health with vitamins & supplements because you know the benefit. If so, you probably wonder if your four legged friend can benefit from them too. Estimates say approximately one third of dogs receive supplements. Here is a list of the things to consider when trying to determine which supplement may be best for your 4 legged family members.
The first known record of dogs on earth dates back 31,700 years ago to the Paleolithic era. Throughout history canines have existed on a diet mostly comprised of animal matter. That's a fairly lengthy period of evolution and a key fact to consider when selecting the primary food for your dog. At no point in the evolutionary history of dogs did their diet include any significant amount of grains or other plant matter. Conventional dog foods that have grains as an ingredient offer far lower nutritional support to your four legged friends. As a matter of fact, a grain-free diet will optimize your dogs health as much as supplementation will.
Whether your thinking of getting a new puppy or you have a dog who's a senior and dealing with the challenges of aging, nutrition is as important for your dogs health as it is to yours. If you are what you eat, than so is your dog. Feed your dog a high quality whole food diet with proper supplementation to ensure they're by your side for as long as possible.
If you suffer chronic inflammation, chances are you’ve tried everything you could think of to make the pain go away.
The usual solutions people turn to include:
For most people, these solutions fail to provide consistent, long-term relief.
Medications provide short-term relief, special exercises help to some extent, but herbal remedies or supplements may not have worked as well as you hoped.
In today’s highly competitive economy, the new normal is for food manufacturers to use marketing ploys to make their products appear healthy – even when they aren’t.
Maltodextrin is one of the most common, hidden-in-plain-sight cons on the market today. It is glorified, processed sugar that masquerades as “carbs.”
It might sound unbelievable, but read the following quote from BellChem – a top US producer of maltodextrin:
“Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate that can be hundreds of sugar molecules in length, which is much larger than the simple carbohydrate arrangement of glucose. Many soft drinks and other flavored beverages contain maltodextrin in their formulas so that they can have a lower amount of sugar on their nutrition facts labels. On the nutrition label, maltodextrin is included under the “Total Carbohydrate” heading, instead of the “sugars” label.”
The Infantry Battalion that I am fortunate enough to command - 3-187 Infantry, the Iron Rakkasans - conducts an event each Spring called the Iron Warrior Challenge (IWC).
The IWC can be a single event or a series of events designed to test Soldiers physically and mentally. The purpose of this event is to link the currently serving Soldiers with those who previously served in the unit, and to remember those that have gone before us and all they endured in the service of our Great Nation. The event was started by GEN (retired) David Petraeus when he commanded the Iron Rakkasans in the early 90s, and has continued on ever since.
