Vitamins and Supplements
There are two types of vitamins: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Your dog needs both. B and C vitamins are water-soluble. This means any excess of the vitamin is filtered through the kidneys and urinated out after ingestion. Because of this, these vitamins must be present in every meal. Vitamin C is needed for healthy teeth and gums. Vitamin B is needed for energy and for breaking down protein and promoting biochemical reactions in the body.
Vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble, meaning that they are stored in the fatty tissue of the body and the liver and, therefore, do not need to be consumed at every meal.
Minerals are needed for the correct composition of body fluids, proper formation of blood and bones, promotion of a healthy nervous system, and to act as coenzymes along with vitamins. Dogs cannot create their own minerals; you must add them to the food. All these vitamins and minerals are found in Viand in the proper concentrations, and even more so, in raw foods.
Enzymes are specialized protein substances that speed up and help create chemical reactions that sustain life. Enzymes are also needed for all kinds of digestion; and to control, promote, and guide life’s vital processes including the storage of energy and reproduction.
Researchers have linked degenerative diseases and cancer to enzyme deficiencies. Cooked food is almost completely deficient in enzymes, and makes the pancreas work harder. Cooked food tends to ferment, and can cause gas, heartburn, headaches, and other ailments. Toxins collect on the walls of the large intestine more readily when only cooked foods are consumed. ParaYeast Control can help eliminate these toxins.
Cooked foods also rob the stomach, salivary glands, and intestines of enzymes. If various organs and glands are continually robbed of enzymes, body breakdown occurs prematurely.
One third of the body’s energy is required for digestion. By using enzyme supplements, the time needed for digestion is reduced. Raw foods contain enzymes and therefore enhance wellness.

Aging is directly related to enzyme robbing. Enzymes are catalysts, which means they cause an internal action without being destroyed or changed. Each enzyme acts on a specific component of food and one cannot be substituted for another. Enzyme deficiencies often mean the difference between health and sickness.
Unleash starts working in the stomach to make sure food is broken down correctly before reaching the small intestine. This is particularly suited to animals whose breath smells and who cannot put on weight.
