HIGH-QUALITY PROTEINS – Proteins are the building blocks of all living organisms. Protein is essential for all bodily functions including those of the brain, heart, skin, skeleton and many others. Life’s Abundance cat food contains at least 33% of high-quality protein. Look for identifiable animal proteins such as "chicken meal" rather generic terms like "poultry meal," which can consist of any fowl (turkey, chicken, geese, etc.).
•Chicken Meal -Some foods contain chicken meat or chicken parts, which naturally hold a fair amount of water. We prefer to use chicken meal because most of the water has been removed, which makes it a concentrated source of protein. This means that there is a greater "protein content" in one pound of chicken meal versus one pound of chicken meat. That’s why high-quality chicken meal is a key ingredient in Life’s Abundance foods.
•Eggs - Eggs are one of nature’s most nutrient-dense foods and play an important role in a balanced diet. They are considered a complete protein source, providing essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals (vitamins A, B, E, K, Biotin, and Sulfur). Eggs also provide healthy fats, such as omega-6 for healthy skin and a glossy coat.
•Catfish Meal - Our top-quality fish meal is made by drying the freshest catfish at a low temperature, creating a concentrated, highly-digestible protein source. In addition to being an excellent source of protein, catfish meal provides natural DHA and EPA, the most important of all the omega-3 fatty acids.
•Turkey Meal - Turkey is an excellent source of protein and is rich in calcium, potassium, B vitamins, niacin, iron and zinc which promote energy and overall health. Turkey meal is also very digestible and very palatable.
CHICKEN FAT - We believe the primary fat source in cat food should be animal based because these fats contain a profile of fatty acids that are easily metabolized and generally more available to the body. Animal fats can vary in quality, so look for a species-specific fat like "chicken fat" (versus "animal fat") to be certain of the kind of fat your cat is eating.
WHOLE GRAINS - Whole grains are an excellent source of protein, fiber, B vitamins, iron, zinc and other essential minerals. They also provide the kind of carbohydrates that deliver sustained energy to your cat. We include the natural goodness of Ground Brown Rice in Life’s Abundance Cat Food. We also include Rice Flour, a carbohydrate that delivers quick energy to your cat.
•Ground Brown Rice is the entire grain with only the inedible outer husk removed. This whole grain contains manganese, selenium, magnesium, as well as tryptophan and vitamins B1, B3 and B6.
VITAMINS AND MINERALS – The proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals in Life’s Abundance foods was carefully selected to work in concert with all of the other ingredients to enhance the overall nutritional value of the food.
~ Vitamins: ascorbic acid, vitamin E supplement, niacin supplement, biotin, thiamine mononitrate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, vitamin A acetate, riboflavin supplement, d-calcium pantothenate, vitamin B-12 supplement, citric acid, vitamin D-3 supplement, folic acid, taurine
~ Minerals: calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, zinc proteinate, iron proteinate, zinc oxide, copper sulfate, manganese sulfate, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, manganous oxide, sodium selenite, calcium iodate.
ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEM – Among other
nutrients, our antioxidant system includes vitamins A, C and E:
Pomegranate - Pomegranate contains vitamin C and potassium. The polyphenols in pomegranate (hydrolyzable tannins called punicalagins) are responsible for the red color.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS FROM FISH OIL - Omega-3 fatty acids are some of the most extensively researched natural nutritional ingredients in the world. Among its many health benefits, the omega-3’s in Life’s Abundance help support healthy skin and a shiny coat. We also included flaxseed meal for its outstanding nutritional profile and its contribution to healthy skin and coat.
FLAXSEED MEAL - Flaxseed meal is the richest plant source of antioxidant lignans and omega-3 fatty acids. Flaxseed meal also has a very high level of highly-digestible protein and essential amino acids. In addition, flaxseed meal contains significant amounts of fiber, vitamin E, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and is extremely rich in the minerals potassium, calcium and phosphorus.
BREWER’S DRIED YEAST - Brewer’s dried yeast is loaded with highly-digestible protein with an exceptional amino acid balance. It also contains an abundance of natural minerals and vitamins, featuring B complex vitamins (except B-12).
BEET PULP (SUGAR REMOVED) - Fiber is required in every diet to maintain healthy intestinal tract and proper nutrient absorption. We use beet pulp, which is the fiber from the gray sugar beet (sugar removed). Many studies have demonstrated that beet pulp performs better than many other types of fiber.
DOG GRASS - Dog grass contains many nutrients that cats crave … that’s instinct at its best! When cats in the wild consumed their prey, the intestinal tract contained grass and this grass provided necessary fiber and phytonutrients.
ALFALFA SPROUTS - Alfalfa sprouts contain an abundance of highly active antioxidants, phytochemicals, enzymes, trace minerals and numerous other living nutrients, which work to support good health and promote proper assimilation of foods.
DIRECT-FED MICROBIALS - These
ingredients are similar to those found in supermarket yogurts. Direct-fed
microbials help support healthy immune and digestive systems. Life’s Abundance
contains the following direct fed microbials: Dried Lactobacillus
acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus casei Fermentation
Product, Dried Bifidobacterium thermophilum Fermentation Product, Dried
Enterococcus faecium Fermentation Product.
