Mushroom Matrix announces its new line of nutritional supplements for dogs and cats. Healthy Pet has all the nutritional benefits found in Matrix products for horses and humans, but is designed with the family pet in mind.
Healthy Pet is a special blend of up to 10 medicinal mushroom varieties, providing dogs and cats with superior health support. High in antioxidants, beta-glucans and polysaccharides, mushrooms are one of nature's most perfect foods for all animals. Not only are they loaded with healthy nutrients, but those nutrients are easily absorbed and used by mammals, which includes not only humans but also horses, dogs and cats. Research into the benefits of medicinal mushrooms indicates that they help promote healthy joints, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, increase stamina and help reduce stress and anxiety.
Healthy Pet is the first in a new line of small animal nutritional supplements being designed by the Mushroom Matrix. Future small animal supplements will include a special puppy Matrix blend to provide puppies with the nutritional support needed to grow strong and healthy, an adult dog blend to promote overall immune system support and a senior blend to provide overall health support with the added benefit of joint protection. Dog and cat treats loaded with the special healthy goodness of the Matrix are also in development.
Research has shown that oxidative damage to cells is one of the leading causes of so many health disorders, including disease, illness and joint dysfunction. It's widely known that antioxidants can help protect cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. This is why so many nutritional supplements for humans and animals promote their antioxidant properties. Medicinal mushrooms, however, such as those used in Matrix nutritional supplements, have extremely high concentrations of one of the most potent antioxidants in the world - L-Ergothioneine (ERGO).
ERGO is abundant in many plants, but humans and other animals cannot manufacture ERGO. The only way to get this beneficial antioxidant is by eating various plants that take up ERGO from the soil. Mushrooms are perhaps most efficient in drawing this valuable antioxidant from the soil. ERGO is then passed along to humans and animals when they ingest mushrooms. In addition to ERGO, mushrooms are also high in other antioxidant compounds, such as selenomethionine, making mushrooms the absolute best whole organic source for antioxidants.
Mushrooms are completely natural and organic with a unique combination of enzymes and antioxidant that work together in such a way that the antioxidants received by consuming mushrooms are easily and quickly absorbed by the body and its tissues, thus providing humans, horses, dogs and cats with the full benefits of antioxidants.
The desire to provide both people and animals with easy access to the health benefits of mushrooms is what led to the creation of the Mushroom Matrix line of nutritional supplements. Matrix products are 100 percent certified organic and the medicinal mushroom varieties used to produce Matrix products are grown in the U.S. by Golden Gourmet Mushrooms of San Marcos, California, producer of Matrix nutritional supplements. With Matrix supplements, it's easy for everyone in the family - including the dog and cat - to get their daily dose of this superior nutritional supplement.
