Our Pets are Members of our Family…and They Need Complete Nutrition

We love them, but we can’t always tell how they are feeling. Our dog or cat may be lacking in energy, their bones or joints may hurt, or they could have a belly ache due to poor digestion. They aren’t able to tell us what they are thinking or feeling, or if their bodies are lacking the nutrients they need to stay healthy.
Our pets rely on us to provide them with what they need, but unfortunately most pet foods are highly processed and lack vital nutrients our pets need to thrive.  And research has shown the following 8 major groups of nutrients are important.

1.  Enzymes

Destroyed in the high heat manufacturing process of traditional pet food. Enzymes drive nearly every chemical and metabolic pathway in the body. Supports the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

2.  Vitamin D

Important for bone mineralization and integrity. Regulates blood levels

of calcium and phosphorus.

Helps support the immune system and joint health.

3.  Synbiotics

Probiotics & prebiotics “good bacteria” supports the living microbiome, the garden of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. Supports proper digestion and the assimilation of nutrients.

4.  Aquatic SuperFoods

Algae provide the body with vitamins B, C, E, beta-carotene, magnesium, iron, trace miner­als and protein. Supports normal immunity, intestinal health and helps maintain strong bones and muscles.

5.  Fruit & Vegetable SuperFoods

Blueberries, spinach and broccoli work as powerful antioxidants. Supports the body to fight free radicals.

6.  Amino Acids

The body’s building blocks, approximately 20% cannot be produced by the body and must come from food. Critical to maintaining good health right down to the cellular level, while supporting healthy protein levels.

7.  Sea Vegetables

Provide trace minerals like calcium, iron, and iodine. Maintains strong bones and supports healthy thyroid and hormone levels.

8.  Juvenile Greens

Contains Vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium, iron & potassium as well as protein and carotenoids. Helps maintain a healthy immune system and supports normal shedding.

That’s where a daily product like Spark comes in.  Spark is a comprehensive, natural, whole food supplement that was formulated by a leading veterinarian and is sprinkled on your pet’s food.  Spark contains 50 ingredients covering all 8 nutritional groups so you’ll see the Spark’s difference in your pet.
