Our four-legged friends tend to be more active during the summer months—when warmer weather and longer days allow for plenty of outdoor play time. But increased exercise and more time outdoors can impact your dog’s health, and just like you, your canine companion can benefit from a little added support. Natural supplements are a safe and effective way to help your dogs cope with problems like dry skin, decreased joint flexibility and mobility, and even sensitive stomachs.
- Keep Hips and Joints Healthy
Just as important as making sure he stays healthy and active is making sure your dog has the right support for his hips and joints. A natural supplement with beneficial ingredients like glucosamine and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), along with whole herbs, herbal extracts and flower essences may help relieve discomfort from normal daily activity. For best results, combine it with a natural Omega-3 EPA and DHA formula to support overall joint, brain and nervous system health.
- Soothe Seasonal Itching
Itching, scratching, licking, shedding—all of these can be brought on by seasonal weather changes. A natural skin and coat supplement can help return a healthy glow to his coat. Look for ingredients to support healthy skin such as brewer’s yeast, inositol, borage oil, chamomile and burdock root, along with beneficial herbs and flower essences.
- Support Healthy Digestion & Weight Management
Because of their relatively short digestive tracts, dogs can benefit from added support to assist with healthy digestion and nutrient absorption. This, in turn, helps promote healthy weight management and overall well-being. Choose a natural supplement that includes probiotics, digestive enzymes and fiber to support intestinal health (including the relief of occasional gas) as well as bowel and anal gland health.
- Assist with Natural Detoxification
The backyard may seem like a playground to your dog, but we humans know all too well about the chemicals and environmental pollutants lurking in every lawn, park and play area that can take a serious toll on his health. Look for a gentle daily formula that supports normal detoxification and healthy liver function to help pets enjoy the vibrant health and vitality they deserve. It may contain ingredients such as milk thistle, dragon’s blood and green tea, along with cleansing herbs and flower essences.
Our dogs are part of the family, and they count on us to protect them and keep them healthy during the summer months and all year long. Natural herbal supplements are a great way to do just that.
Summer is almost here! The weather is warm, the kids will soon be out of school, and vacation is calling. But camping trips to cruises, all summer travels have one thing in common: they can do a number on your insides—from occasional constipation to an unexpected bout of heartburn or indigestion. Before you hit the road, here are three must-have supplements that can help safeguard your digestive system and ease your journey.‡
- Don’t forget the Probiotics
Changes in your daily routine (including travel) can upset the healthy balance of bacteria in your digestive tract, which may lead to tummy troubles and occasional constipation. A daily, shelf-stable probiotic is perfect for travel and can help maintain a healthy internal balance to support good digestion and regular elimination.‡ In addition, because up to 80% of your immune system is found in the gut, probiotics supplements help make sure there are plenty of good bacteria to support healthy immune function away from home.‡
- Natural Heartburn Relief On the Go
Something about being on vacation makes us feel a little braver than usual, and that includes trying new foods! If your adventurous side experiences occasional heartburn or indigestion, make sure your carry-on includes a daily digestive enzyme supplement to ensure more complete digestion and help relieve occasional gas, bloating and indigestion.‡ And for fast-acting, soothing relief from occasional heartburn, try a natural oral spray with soothing botanicals and herbal extracts.‡
- Daily Detox
No matter where you travel—even if your vacation is a “staycation”—your body is exposed to an overwhelming number of toxins every day. They are in the air you breathe, in your food and water, and even in many of your personal care products such as sunscreen. A natural total-body daily detox formula made with gentle whole herbs and nutraceuticals helps support your natural cleansing channels—including the lungs, liver, lymphatic system, kidneys, skin, blood and bowel (or colon) to promote healthy digestion, detoxification and elimination.‡
And one more tip: when we’re on the go, we sometimes forget to stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of purified water (at least half your body weight in ounces daily) is important for regular bowel elimination, but it also nourishes your body’s cells and tissues and even helps with appetite control. Happy (and healthy) travels!
