Colostrum... Nature's Perfect Food - For Pets

It's been kept a secret until now..

Whether they’re hard at play in the mud outside, helping the dog with his dinner or sharing toys with friends. Kids give little regard to hygiene, resulting in them having and increased exposure to bacteria and viruses.This tactile nature of children is important for their learning and development, but how do you guard against the increased risk of germs?

Most dog and cat foods offer minimal positive supplements to their diets. The primary ingredient consists of grains. The results, our pets suffer the effects of obesity and loss of energy. Our pet lines are designed to help your pets achieve a healthy boost to their immune system with added minerals, vitamins, and mineral supplements.

In a time of excess allergies people are now questioning whether the plethora of antibacterial products is in part to blame for this - based on the hygiene. By now most people are also clued up to the fact that antibiotic medicines should only be used when absolutely necessary; reliance on antibiotics can not only lead to antibiotic resistance (where the medications are no longer effective at treating infection), but they also disrupt the delicate balance of intesypothesis - which in short is the theory that by killing all bacteria we are left with a sterile environment and fail to develop natural immunity to everyday bugtinal microflora.

So, if not through the abundant use of antibacterial cleaners and antibiotics, how do you guard against the increased risk of germs? Simple, you support the development of a healthy, robust immune system. Children are born with a certain level of immunity called ‘innate’ or ‘non-specific’ immunity that prevents the entry of bacteria into the body by providing generic protection such as mucous membrane barriers, inflammation mechanisms and of course white blood cell activity. But their ‘acquired’ or ‘specific’ immunity which creates a memory of a bacteria or virus so it can fight it off if it’s encountered again (the theory behind vaccinations) requires children to be exposed to bacteria and viruses so they can build up their specific immunity.

Because the immune system in humans doesn’t fully develop until around the age of 7 or 8 years of age we need to look at what we can do to support them during these formative years. The key factors to raising healthy children and helping them to build strong immunity are making sure they eat a healthy diet, get plenty of fresh air, sunshine, exercise and sleep. Of course there will always be times when your child is faced with additional challenges and sometimes their immune system doesn’t seem to be able to keep up. It is in these situations, or if you can foretell them, the lead up to these situations, that additional support in the form of supplements may be helpful.
