Bromelain 2400 GDU (Gelatin Digesting Units) (2400GDU is the highest potency available) is a protein-digesting enzyme, sourced from the pineapple fruit. This fascinating compound has traditionally been used as a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling agent. Because it’s an enzyme, bromelain helps the body digest food and absorb nutrients more efficiently, as well as being extremely effective at healing issues in the gastrointestinal tract. According to MedlinePlus, an online database of scientific studies, bromelain may help treat skin rash, decrease inflammation, regulate the immune system, and have antiviral effects.
Aloe Vera Inner Leaf (Active Aloe) (200-1) Chinese medicine regards aloe vera as an energetically “cold” herbal product making it appropriate for all “hot” diseases. Aloe Vera helps to soothe skin related issues and promotes normal respiratory function and health, used around the world by holistic vets for swollen skin affliction, clogged sinuses, and lungs. Benefits from Aloe depend upon careful processing. Most Aloes are heat processed, high heat (pasteurization and/or autoclave methods) break down the constituents in Aloe that are the most valuable for healing. Heat also kills the live enzymes necessary for digestion. We use the highest quality, 200:1 reduction, with all enzymes and mucopolysaccharides intact. Active Aloe is dried by a unique low heat process that retains all the fragile elements of the aloe plant.
Zeolite (Clinoptololite): Formed when lava meets sea water. The negative charge naturally alkalizes the body by balancing pH and enhancing the body’s digestive processes which are more efficient when the rest of the body maintains its alkalinity.
Slippery Elm is an herbal preparation made from the slippery inner bark of a type of elm tree. Slippery elm has been used for centuries in North America for medicinal purposes. Slippery elm contains mucilage, a sticky mixture of sugars that can’t be broken down by the digestive tract. It is capable of soothing the lining of the stomach and intestines and reducing irritation.
Serrazimes: Serratiopeptidase, also known as serrapeptidase and serrapeptase, is a protease originally found in the gut of the silkworm. It is produced by the bacteria Serratia marcescens. This protease has been the subject of much research and its use has grown in Asia and Europe. Studies support serratiopeptidase’s benefit in supporting musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory health.
Magnesium Bentonite Clay (Montmorillinite): A pure white clay from the Pauite territory in Utah. It is negatively-charged and works like a magnet to attract positively-charged toxins such as lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and many more and carries them out of the body within hours.
Administer orally; VERY IMPORTANT: Mix into wet food or liquid to avoid powder inhalation.
Dosage: 1/8 tsp
Cats: 1x daily
