Nekton Dog VM 30g. Vitamins - Minerals - Trace Elements for All Breeds of Dogs
Mineral elements are essential to the body and fulfill a number of important and diverse functions. Like vitamins, minerals are vital catalysts and activate the numerous enzymes or enzymatic systems involved in the catabolism (breaking down), metabolism (remodelling), and anabolism (rebuilding) of the ingested energy sources - proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
But not only a deficiency in minerals can harm the body. Practically any element can lead to serious and complicated disturbances in the body's make-up when an animal consumes it in large enough quantities. That is why mineral elements should be in a balanced relationship to each other and to the other nutrients in the diet. An imbalance can lead to interference in mineral absorption, excretion and binding, and minerals should therefore always be regarded and administered as a group and not as individual elements.
Many of the most important basic foods for dogs lack calcium and vitamin A but contain a comparatively high proportion of phosphorus. NEKTON-DOG-VM has therefore been enriched with vitamin A to counteract a deficiency. However, as the amount of food supplement normally administered daily is low, it is difficult to add enough calcium to the supplement to balance out the poor calcium - phosphorus ratio. For this reason the proportion of magnesium and vitamin D in NEKTON-DOG-VM has been increased to improve the absorption of calcium in the intestines and thus achieve a better calcium - phosphorus ratio.
The nature and equilibrium of these nutrients are not only the basis for the quality of NEKTON-DOG-VM but also for its effectiveness as a vitamin and mineral supplement. The full potential of this product as an optimum source of essential vitamins and minerals is best put to use in maintaining good health in middle-aged dogs under normal conditions.
