Life Extension, Cat Mix with Resveratol, 100 g (Discontinued Item)
Life Extension Cat Mix targets areas of nutrition that are commonly inadequate, or that are proven to be valuable for the treatment and prevention of common disease. This formula contains only human-grade ingredients not found in any other animal supplements. It is designed for disease prevention and longevity. It is not intended to substitute for a proper diet. It may, however, be used in debilitated animals to provide additional nutrition. This product is not meant to replace veterinary care. Any animal not responding to nutritional therapy should be seen by a licensed, competent veterinarian. Always inform your veterinarian if your animal is taking a supplement.
Animals have unique physiological structures, and therefore need specific food and nutrients to keep them in optimal health. No longer considered just animals, household pets require special attention. Filling the need, the pet food industry has grown tremendously over the years. But are you getting the best nutrients for your dog or cat?
Cats have been domesticated since early times, essentially to catch rats and mice. Today, they are mainly household pets that, like dogs, require special attention when it comes to their nutrition and care.
Cats are carnivorous. But, unlike dogs that can eat some plant-based foods, cats need animal protein to survive. Amino acids like taurine and arginine are important to a cat’s health; without them cats could die. Taurine, for one, is a must for heart, kidney, and eye health. Arginine detoxifies ammonia in cats’ kidneys and is also important for heart and pancreatic function and keeping the gut healthy. The essential fatty acid, arachidonic acid, is another must for cats—it is used in every cell in the body. And, just like humans, they need B vitamins to support their cardiovascular system. Cats also have problems metabolizing certain amino acids from other nutrients, like the conversion of niacin to tryptophan, or vitamin A from beta-carotene, along with limitation in enzyme systems. For that reason cats have a more stringent need for specific nutritional requirements than for omnivores such as the rat, dog, and man.
An excellent source. So how can you be assured that you are giving your pet the best nutrition? Besides high quality commercial foods that are nutrient-enriched, feed supplements are the best option to make sure your pets are getting all the vitamins and minerals they need to live long healthy lives.
Life Extension Dog Mix and Life Extension Cat Mix are among the best products for protecting your animal’s health. Just two scoops per day provide the vitamin insurance your pet needs to stay healthy and strong. Life Extension Dog Mix contains significant amounts of high-grade nutrients usually reserved for the most expensive human supplements. It contains flavonoids, amino acids, antioxidants, probiotics, essential fatty acids, methylation enhancers, and more.
Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant, has been added to both mixes. Resveratrol is an extract from red grapes and other plants. A tremendous number of studies indicate that resveratrol provides multi-faceted health benefits. Among resveratrol’s many benefits is its ability to help treat pain, regulate bacterial growth, support immune system, protect DNA, and many other conditions.
In fact, many commercial pet foods do not contain the vitamins, amino acids, phytonutrients, and advanced antioxidants found in Life Extension Dog Mix and Life Extension Cat Mix. Life Extension pet supplements contain the same pharmaceutical-grade nutrients used in the products consumed by Life Extension Foundation members.
For cats weighing six to nine pounds, mix two scoops a day into your pet's food. Adjust amount according to weight.

iHerb sent the Life Extension, Cat Mix very rapidly. The Life Extension vitamins for cats helps them handle their aging process as they loose the ability to absorb vitamins and have a greater need for some fatty acids and gives them a higher quality nutrition when they have end stage Kidney and Liver disease.

My 11 year old cat is lots perkier since we've been supplementing her diet with this. It works!

I was excited about this product, but unfortunately my cat turns her nose up whenever I try to give it to her. I mix it in with her wetfood, but she always KNOWS! I am going to keep trying!

I couldn't believe the difference in my 15 year old cat. She is frisky again. The other night she chased our dog...something she hasn't done in years. She harasses me for her food (and Cat Mix) at night. She had a urinary problem that seems to be getting better. I highly recommend this product.
