In all living systems, cells require adequate levels of antioxidant defenses. Antioxidants are substances that prevent or slow down damage to cells caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to the environment or other pressures, and can damage cells.

The addition of antioxidants to the diet can help prevent cell damage against free radicals. Antioxidant nutrients commonly included in a diet include:  

  • Vitamin E 
  • Vitamin C 
  • Beta-carotene  
  • Selenium 
  • Copper 
  • Iron 
  • Zinc    

These compounds are found in every Tailored recipe to help your pup live a long, healthy, and happy life.
