Ingredient Spotlight: Montmorillonite Clay
Understanding the ingredients in your pet’s food is an important step in choosing the right food for their nutritional needs.
At Nature’s Logic we are committed to creating 100% all-natural nutrition from food, not from synthetics. Each ingredient in our products is mindfully selected to provide the highest quality and safest nutrition for the furry members of your family. These “all-natural all-stars” are derived only from whole foods to ensure that your pet is not exposed to the potential toxicities associated with man-made substances that are found in other “natural” pet food brands.
One of our all-star ingredients – Montmorillonite Clay – packs a powerful nutritional punch. Nature’s Logic chooses to use Montmorillonite Clay as a natural anti-caking agent to prevent clumping and excess moisture because it is also known to have many natural health benefits.
While feeding clay to your pet may seem unusual, eating clay has actually been a practice for thousands of years, dating back to the time of Hippocrates in 460 BC. When clay is moistened, it absorbs water and swells, grabbing debris like bacteria, viruses and toxins. Like a magnet, clays attract and hold the toxins until the body can remove them.
Feeding clay slows the digestion process, allowing more time for enzymes to break food down. In addition, clay causes physical strengthening of the gut lining, improved digestion and immune protection. Clay contains at least 67 minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and silica as well as important minerals that are critical for many functions of the body.
Other benefits of Montmorillonite Clay include:
- Supports immune function
- Helps improve weight gain and feed efficiency
- Promotes probiotic activity
- Helps strengthen and heal the gut lining
Montmorillonite clay is just one of the many natural, beneficial ingredients you’ll find in Nature’s Logic 100% natural pet food. Our all-star ingredients work together to naturally provide the essential nutrition your pet needs to thrive – without synthetics.
