Fillers and Preservatives
You would be amazed if you found out what manufacturers can
legally put into supplements in terms of additives,
fillers, and binders without having to list these
items on the label. Most all of them utilize raw materials
- lactose, sodium
benzoate, BHA, BHT, hydrogenated oils
fillers and preservatives. These ingredients often cause allergic
reactions, and many are
harmful to the animal ingesting them.
and Flowing Agents
These same companies utilize lubricants and flowing agents
acid, magnesium stearate, ascorbyl
stearate appears by far the
most popular one. Read the labels! They add absolutely
no value to the supplement content. Their only purpose is
to make the manufacturing process easier because they keep
ingredients from sticking to the machinery. These lubricants
are saturated fats. They tend to engulf the active
ingredients which interferes with their absorption.
It is like throwing a good portion of your pet's supplements
Glues and Coloring Agents
Whenever you use supplements in tablet form, beware!
tablets contain binders and glues to keep their shape.
tablets contain artificial coloring agents to make
them look "prettier". Titanium Oxide as a "whitening
agent" is just one example.
these additives often cause allergic reactions, and
many are detrimental to your dog's, cat's and horse's health.
