Why BD

  • Pet Nutrition Solved

    Economically going beyond commercial pet foods.

    Are you concerned that your pet’s food comes up short, do you want to add delicious real pure foods? We realize feeding your pets very well can be expensive and confusing. BD’s mission is to make it easy to help your pets thrive! Why not consider including BD, taking your pets current diet to the next level. Get the benefits you desire very economically. BD is the most nutrition you can get.

    You will know your pets’ diet is in perfect balance by the results you quickly achieve! BD daily foods, between meals nutritional treats and natural holistic supplements. BD integrates seamlessly with most other foods. BD is your pet’s core superfood nutrition system. Feeding premium pet food is not the same as adding Balance Diet™ (Subtract 1/3 of your staple food and replace with ¼ BD) Incorporating BD into your pets diet can really make all the difference!

  • Recycled by-products

    Your dog and cat primarily need fresh unadulterated meat based nutrition – the most expensive, most difficult ingredient to use. BD provides high levels of fresh meats, safe and easy for you. Not reprocessed heated grain as protein, or rendered heat re-processed meat and bone by-product meals depleted of fats and nutrients. This causes your pet’s system to work overtime to cope, leading to health complications. Even the guaranteed analysis will not tell you what you need to know about where and how the proteins are derived. BD is real, whole, cultured open air cured meats, veggies, fruits and herbs. BD has been making the finest pet nutrition for over 25 years.

    Dog and cat foods are made with denatured, rendered, recycled by-products and meals from various sources, and imported from developing countries. Meat by products are super heated to decontaminate, dehydrate and separate waste animal tissue from bone and fat, producing protein residue. BD has no ingredient called fat because we use real meat with naturally marbled fat, not sprayed on at the end of a steam extrusion process. BD is not extruded, only die cut cold. Commercial pet foods may contain high concentrations of low quality carbohydrate feed fines, and crumbs, that in many cases have been cooked and reprocessed up to 4 times.

    Disconnect your pet from the toxic rendering recycling industry. Societies depend on rendering and recycling, but your pet’s food should not. Pet food is basically the end of the line for recycled ingredients. Rendering creates a wide variety of pet foods and non food items but should not be your pets source for critical life giving nutrition. Commercial pet food is typically made with some or all recycled by-products, even ones that seem so sincere. So even if you do use such pet foods, BD supplementation can be of great benefit, achieving good nutrition.

  • Raw Food Diet?

    From 30% to 85% percent of the nutrition in foods is destroyed during cooking, an average 50% percent loss. Fresh, raw, whole foods contain the highest levels of nutrients and enzymes. Enzymes are the catalyst for the hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body. Cooked foods and dry convenience diets have been denatured and are devoid of enzymes and life promoting elements. While they may maintain life, they do not promote optimum health or longevity. Raw food has much more to offer than a dog or cat’s body can actually metabolize. So while raw food itself is full of nutrients, much is wasted if they are not bio-available nutrients.

    Further, raw food is up to 80% water. This is where our proprietary VitaMethod™ fermentation and air curing process makes a profound difference, purging up to 86% of the water, unlocking much more of the fresh raw food nutrition. This process accesses a wealth of nutrients, even generating new healthful compounds (Take note — Commercially available Raw Diets are as much as 66% water). BD’s dark deep reddish brown color and pleasing, mild distinctive earthy aroma represents the purity of ingredients. BD’s food shape is also unique, designed to be the most inviting and satisfying, easy to chew, digestible food on the market. Flame polishing just before vacuum packing completes the process to insure a safe clean consistent wholesome product eliminating surface impurities, giving your pets the best of all worlds. Superior to either raw, freeze dried, or cooked foods. Safe, no nitrates or nitrites, economical, easy shipping and storage. BD-Farm fresh, direct.

  • Protein and Amino Acids

    Balance Diet™ pet foods are almost 50% meat based by weight. BD™ foods have up to 3 times more digestability than home made diets, 5 times more real meat than commercial pet food with sky-high bioavailability. BD™ pet foods are among the most abundant sources known of amino acids including the 8 essential amino”s, and as many 22 amino acids. Our protein counts are higher but fermentation breaks down and purifies proteins and causes them to become very mild and easily digestible unlike heat processed by product proteins and gain sources. (Note: lower protein formulas are available for special needs).

  • As pets grow older

    There may be tooth decay, skin ailments, the loss of vision, etc. As pets enter adult life there can be arthritis, hypoglycemia, heart conditions, strokes, diabetes, organ failure and cancers. All this and a multitude of other diseases may be unnecessary and are largely a result of improper diet and lifestyle! Today most people accept highly processed, cooked pet food as the normal means of supplying the body with nutrients, not realizing that the living cells of their pets bodies do not take adequate nourishment from the dead, inert and artificial ingredients found in highly processed food.

    And so, after a typical meal of processed pet food consisting of all manner of bulk fillers / by products / sugars, their stomach is full but their vital organs are stressed. Unwitting well intentioned pet owners believe they have satisfied the nutritional needs.In reality, they have given their pets body practically no real food holistic nourishment. And thus with a full stomach, they are slowly starving their body’s cells. There are two kinds of starvation. One type of starvation comes about because of a lack food. The second and most insidious starvation is progressive malnutrition over a period of time. There is plenty of “food” but it’s empty food. The food we feed our pets produces plenty of calories and energy but is almost completely devoid of natural nutrition which is vital for long term health. A good diet promotes good health and prevents the onset of disease, and heart breaking, costly veterinary complications.

  • True good health is more than just the absence of disease

    Wellness is a state of being where your pets enjoy all the energy, vitality and benefits life has to offer. One of the keys to achieving good health is to use the power of healthy foods to positively affect how your pets feel, how much energy they have, and the length and quality of their life. There is clear and definitive scientific evidence that proper nutrition plays an important and significant role in reducing the risk of degenerative diseases, and in providing long term health and longevity.

  • Malnutrition is the basis for disease

    The body is a living organism, made of living cells, which require living food in order to be properly nourished and function optimally. When we put cooked processed food in our pets body, loaded with chemical contaminants, the body begins to break down slowly. It begins in the very young with colic, rashes, colds, earaches, upset stomachs, swollen glands, infections and all manner of inflammation.

    Testimonial:

    I’ve been feeding BD to my four ESS’s for 5 months now……the changes in my dogs have been remarkable!!!!!!!! My dogs range in age from 14 months to almost 9 years. The 9 year old has always had really crummy skin. He has had staph infections, yucky ears, itchy scratchies you name it he’s had it. For almost a year I fed totally raw, well at the time we had 6 dogs, including a litter of puppies….it was too much so I started switching around to various “premium” (read expensive) kibbles. His skin kept getting worse and worse. We did food allergy tests, etc. The other dogs were doing reasonably well on what ever I fed them, but one always looked bloated, one didn’t eat real well very finicky, the puppies….well they were puppies what can I say. Finally I was about to switch back to all raw as we had gotten back down to a manageable number of dogs. I was on a dog list where Balance Diet was mentioned. I thought well this would be my last try before going back to raw. In 2 weeks the male’s skin cleared up. Then he went thru a detox like I’ve never seen before!!!!!!! From gooey, crusty skin, to weepy yucky eyes, loose mucousy stools and smell….wow! After the initial 2 weeks the skin started clearing up, first inside his hindlegs then all over his body. Now after about 5 months he has the cleanest, clearest skin that he’s had since he was a 3 week old puppy! His coat is shiny and has that healthy oily feel that most Sporting dogs have. His ears are also clear and clean. These changes are very drastic, but indicative of the changes I’ve seen in the others. Gone are the red stains between the toes, gone is the bloated overweight look. The puppies (young adults actually now) have actually put on bone density that wasn’t there before. As for your claim of 20# lasting as long as a 35# bag, mine is now lasting about 3 days longer. These are very active dogs. Some in training for obedience, some for field work and actively showing. These dogs don’t sit around. They are busy constantly. I can’t tell you how happy I am with this food. I know it’s not for everyone, but you have a customer for life! I’m tired of having to change foods because a company decides to change the formula (for whatever reason) I sure hope this doesn’t happen with your food. Any time you want an endorsement, just let me know I’ll be happy to provide you with one. I’d be happy to include a “We feed BalanceDiet” in any of our ads that we do for the dogs. We do advertise extensively and have a website where this can be included. Maybe we could make arrangements that would be beneficial to both parties. Again thank you for your great food!

  • Why Balance Diet-Reason 2

    Why Balance Diet-Reason 2Compare our labels with other brands. You will see the IMPURE ingredients used by other companies such as BHA, BHT, digests-flavor enhancers, and synthetic tocopherols. They are required to list these ingredients, if they were added when making the final product. Balance Diet™ is the ONLY company to utilize purified, fermented, hypoallergenic ingredients created by virtue of our VitaMethod™ technology. For over 20 years we have NEVER used the common, inexpensive, potentially harmful ingredients utilized by other companies. We never have, and we never will. That is why experts and serious pet owners can trust the Balance Diet™ alternative.

  • Why Balance Diet-Reason 3

    Why Balance Diet-Reason 3Lubricants enable heat processing equipment to run more efficiently, but they can inhibit nutrient dissolution in the digestive tract. Good for the machine — bad for your pet or cat. They may not absorb the product you paid for and cause a host of health deficiencies such as skin (Psoriasis, Eczema, Hot Spots, etc.), coat (dull, discoloration, excessive shedding, etc.), loss of muscle tone, and pudginess. Additives in this category include stearic acid and its cousins: magnesium stearate, calcium stearate, fractionated vegetable oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil, castor oil, and ascorbyl palmitate. Ascorbyl palmitate is often added to many dietary supplements as a lubricant, but is labeled as a “Vitamin C source,” although it has the same negative properties as stearic acid — reduced dissolution and inhibited absorption. Some companies even use calcium stearate as a lubricant, passing it off as a calcium source.

    During typical manufacturing (not ours), every nutrient particle becomes coated with a layer of these lubricants, presenting the potential that delivery of the nutrient will be considerably further down the intestinal tract than the optimal absorption site. In many cases, nutrients are only partially absorbed or not absorbed at all. These lubricants are NEVER added to Balance Diet™ products and we do not use heat processing equipment. Consider the adverse effect of impeded absorption with a simple substance such as niacin, which in a time-release form can cause elevated liver enzymes and liver damage. When stearic acid or palmitic acid is used as a lubricant in manufacturing pet food containing niacin, it effectively results in a time-release dosage, thus having the very potential of causing inhibited absorption, elevated liver enzymes, or even liver damage.

  • Allergies and Food Intolerances

    What Are Food Allergies and Food Intolerances?

    Why pets or cats will not be allergic to our products?
    Adverse reactions to foods have been recognized for years; “What is food to one may be fierce poison to another”. (Lucretius, circa 75 BC) The term ‘allergy’ is derived from two Greek words which mean “altered reactivity”. That is, an allergy is an adverse reaction to a normally harmless substance which may be a food or other environmental agent such as dusts, pollens or chemicals.

    The difference between Allergy and Intolerance: Allergy is used to describe those cases in which the adverse reaction to a substance occurs almost immediately, usually within an hour. The reaction is obvious and often quite violent, for example, developing a rash or hives after eating heat processed, grain-based pet foods or being violently sick after eating wheat biscuits. True allergies are quite rare. They affect only a small percentage of the population and most often develop during the puppy or kitten life stage.

    Sensitivities or intolerances on the other hand, affect a great number of companion animals and develop at any time of life. The symptoms of food intolerance rarely occur immediately after the food is eaten. In fact, the reactions are usually delayed by many hours, or even many days. For example, the wheat eaten on Monday could be the cause of Thursday’s joint pain. It is these delayed reactions which make the detection of the culprit foods a most difficult task without the help of expert laboratory testing.

    The fermentation process used to produce Balance Diet™™ is a cleansing process. That is to say that if your pet or cat were allergic to any of the specific ingredients, they are purified through the break-down and pre-digestion of the ingredients through the generation of hypoallergenic polyphenols.

    Is gluten-free the same as wheat-free?
    Definitely not! Gluten or gliadin is a complex of protein which occurs in wheat, oats, rye and barley. It causes toxic reactions in pets and cats with a particular genetic make-up. This can cause them to develop Coeliac disease, or intestinal villus atrophy. Being sensitive to wheat is a very different thing; in this case your reaction may be to any one of the proteins contained in the grain and it is likely to be a true immunological reaction, not a toxic one. Therefore, the fact that food is gluten-free is no guarantee at all that it is wheat-free. However, there are several gluten-free products on the market which do happen to be wheat-free also. Clearly you have to read the labels carefully.

    The Flaw of Carbohydrates

    Carbohydrates, such as corn, wheat, soy, oats, potato, barley, and rice, compete with proteins and fats for digestive precedence. They easily convert to simple sugars forcing themselves ahead of proteins and fats causing your pet’s metabolism to continually rely upon these sugars, sending proteins and fats off to be stored as fat and cholesterol. Furthermore, the heat processing of carbohydrates is called gelatizing which converts carbohydrates to starches which easily convert to harmful sugars. Instead of being lean, muscular, and healthy, your pet becomes fat, pudgy, and sluggish. This causes constant insulin reactions stressing the pancreas, adrenals, and vital organs, leading to hyperinsulinism/hyperinsulin anemia, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. They are found in dry pet foods and pet biscuits. Potatoes have become a popular ingredient in pet foods and treats lately. It should be noted that they are using potato chip scraps which cost up to 10 times less than corn and have already been heat processed once before being heat processed in pet food and treats.

  • Food as Medicine

    Food-as-medicineMore than 24 centuries ago, it was Hippocrates who first identified that ‘We are what we eat’. Little did he know that this philosophy would never ring more true than in today’s society, where diets and lifestyles have become inextricably interwoven with the state of health. And as medical experts start, like Hippocrates, to take a more holistic view of illness and its causes, more and more attention is being turned toward the adverse effect of modern food processing. What is the problem? The food our pets eat has changed a great deal since Hippocrates’ time. There are more exotic foods in diets, new additives and new and advanced methods of containing, preserving, and processing foods. But how does the food we feed affect physiology? Why are some diseases on the increase and affecting pets? We all know our pet’s health is a precious asset, yet how much do we know about what we are feeding and how it affects dogs as individuals? A large number of dogs have a hidden sensitivity or intolerance, or even an allergy to different foods. This can cause many potential problems. The most common symptoms (which may often take a long time to build up) include: Skin & Coat disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Behaviorial Problems, Hives (Hot Spots), Rhinitis (Runny Noses), General lethargy, Fluid retention, Cancer, Asthma, Arthritis, Aches and pains, and Hyperactivity.

  • Pet Longevity

    Pet LongevityPet Longevity
    Longevity research confirms the fact that optimal nutritional supplements can deter and slow the aging process in people and pet’s. Antioxidants and essential nutrients have a synergistic effect; they work together like a team so that when combined properly one plus one equals three.
    To help your pet enjoy a long healthy life look for supplements like Balance Diet that combine optimal levels of vital nutrients geared specifically to optimize your pet’s health and wellness based on his or her age and body weight. Be sure the product you choose is made in the United States and backed by clinical trials with a veterinarian on staff.
    When it comes to optimal nutritional supplements, your pet’s potential health benefits far outweigh the cost and your pet will be living proof for years to come.
    What to Look For In a Pet Supplement
    The market is exploding with products claiming to improve the health and wellness of individuals using vitamins and nutritional supplements. People are now seeking the same products to complement the health of their pets. The benefits of appropriate nutritional supplements are overwhelming and can add several healthy years to your life, as well as your pets.

    Pets Age Faster Than People
    Longevity is attributed 30 percent to genetics and 70 percent to lifestyle. Up to 90 percent of diseases in pets are due to the degenerative processes associated with aging.
    Does Your Pet Act His Age?
    Because pets age seven times faster than people, major health changes occur in a short amount of time. Pets are considered puppies for about one year, adults from age two to six, and seniors at age seven. Giant breeds, like Great Danes, age even more quickly and are considered seniors at age five. Signs of aging in pets occur slowly, but generally begin at maturity, somewhere between age one and two.
    Dr. Denham Harman’s Free Radical Theory of Aging, applies to people and pets, including pets. This universally accepted theory states that aging is a process in which the body’s systems deteriorate faster than the body can repair them.
    The changes occur due to oxidative damage caused by harmful compounds called free radicals. Free radicals are toxic, electrically unstable molecules. As we age, they are produced more quickly.
    Free radicals damage your pet’s body similar to the way oxygen causes iron to rust. They are detrimental to your pet’s genetic material, his DNA and RNA, his cell membranes and enzyme systems.
    Free radicals are formed each time we take a breath. Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, as well as to environmental toxins, pollution, heavy metals and stress contribute to free radical formation. Your pet’s diet and drugs, such as antibiotics, are also factors.
    Free radicals weaken your pet’s natural defenses and have been associated with the development of up to 90 percent of the age-related degenerative conditions we associate with aging: Cancer, Heart disease, Arhritis, Diabetes Cataracts, Premature aging.
    Our life span, as well as the length of your pet’s life, is ultimately determined by how quickly free radicals cause harmful oxidative changes to occur. Therefore what you feed your pet, as well as the supplements you choose for your pet are both very important.

    Help Your Pet Enjoy a Longer, Healthier Life

    Your Pet’s Diet
    You are what you eat, and that’s just as important for people as it is for pets. What you feed your pet directly affects his health and wellness. The longer and more consistently you give your pet an optimally balanced diet, the greater his chances are of living a longer, healthier life.
    Pets, like people are omnivores and can naturally exist on a diet of meat, fruit and vegetables. Consult with your vet to determine the best diet for your pet. Commercial varieties worth looking into include organic, natural diets such as Prairie made by Natures Variety.
    Homemade, natural diets take more time and effort but in many cases are well worth the extra effort. Vegetarian and raw food diets are another option that, with careful supervision, may provide complete and balanced nutrition for your pet.
    According to the Guinness Book of Records, a Border Collie in England named Taffy, lived to the spry age of 27 eating an all-natural, organic diet.
    Healthy Pet Snacks
    Fruits and vegetables are healthy, low calorie snacks many pets enjoy. Those rich in antioxidants are especially beneficial for your pet: Oranges, Tomatoes, Sweet Potato, Carrots , Cantaloupe, Asparagus Tips.
    Oranges are rich in Vitamin C, tomatoes are filled with Lycopenes and sweet potatoes are a source of Vitamin E and Beta Carotene. Carrots and cantaloupes also provide Beta Carotene for your pet.
    Antioxidant Supplements for Your Pet: Sooner Not Later
    Recent research documents that antioxidants provide very bright prospects for increasing the quality and length of your pet’s life. In addition, scientists have found that sooner is better than later as far as your pet’s potential health benefits. Antioxidant supplementation started as a puppy, before free radical damage has occurred, can increase the healthy lifespan of your pet by up to 20 percent.
    Antioxidant supplements, including Vitamins A, C, and E, the minerals Selenium and Zinc, and the nutrients Alpha Lipoic Acid and Coenzyme Q10, are the body’s natural defense against free radical damage. They can help to protect your pet by neutralizing free radicals and decreasing the resultant levels of oxidative damage.
    Other noteworthy antioxidant supplements for your pet include:
    Bioflavinoids, which help to decrease allergic reactions, asthmatic attacks and have anti-cancer benefits for your pet.
    Green Tea, whose antioxidants may decrease the risk of heart disease and cancer and help protect the blood vessels nourishing your pet’s heart and brain.
    Lutein, a plant pigment from marigolds, helps to protect your pet’s eyes and may reduce the risk of cataracts.
    Melatonin, a potent antioxidant that acts to normalize sleep patterns. It also protects your pet’s brain and has been used successfully with cancer therapy.
    The effects of antioxidants are beneficial and act synergistically for people and pet’s undergoing cancer therapy. In well controlled studies, people and pets treated with antioxidants (with or without chemotherapy and radiation) have tolerated treatments better and experienced less weight loss. More importantly, they enjoyed a better overall quality of life and lived longer than individuals receiving no supplements.
    Nutritional Supplements for Your Pet’s Bones, Joints & Cartilage
    Glucosamine is an amino sugar naturally produced in your pet’s body from glucose, which is your pet’s blood sugar, and the Amino Acid, Glutamine. It helps the cartilage between the joints retain water so the cartilage can act like a cushion to absorb shock and withstand compression. Glucosamine is vital to protecting the health and integrity of your pet’s bones, joints and cartilage. It helps to:
    Decrease joint inflammation and pain
    Promote cartilage repair
    Aid healing of damaged joints
    Increase mobility in pets with arthritis and hip dysplasia
    Glucosamine is also a normal component of the urinary bladder in pet’s and cat’s and may help to relieve urinary disorders.
    MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is a natural source of sulfur that works along with Glucosamine to help protect the health and integrity of your pet’s bones, joints and cartilage.
    Essential Fatty Acid Supplements for Your Pet
    Essential Fatty Acids are vital to life and support all bodily functions in your pet. They help to keep cell membranes soft and pliable, so your pet’s cells can absorb dietary nutrients. They enhance your pet’s skin and hair coat and are needed for the normal development of the nervous system and brain.
    Fatty Acids are vital to brain health and help to preserve mental clarity. They decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in pets, cats and people. Fatty Acids may reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure, as well as provide therapeutic effects in your pet for: Arthritis, Lupus, Inflammatory bowel disease,
    Cancer therapy, Kidney disorders
    Flea allergies, food intolerances and bacterial skin infections can often be relieved by providing your pet with fatty acid supplements.
    The proper balance of Fatty Acids helps to reduce wear and tear on your pet’s body by decreasing stress triggered increases in cholesterol and the stress hormone Cortisol. Research indicates that the ratio of 5:1 of Omega 6 to Omega 3 Fatty Acids seems to provide the greatest clinical benefits, surpassing that of any individual Fatty Acid alone.
    Amino Acid Supplements for Your Pet
    Glutamine is the most abundant Amino Acid in the body. It is the major energy source for the cells that line the digestive system and strengthens your pet’s natural defense system known as the immune system.
    Glutamine promotes healing of the digestive system thereby reducing bowel disorders. It spares protein and reduces muscle loss during periods of injury, stress and high endurance activities. Therefore it is especially beneficial for pets recovering from trauma and for working and show pets.
    Glutamine also has many anti-aging effects. It helps to preserve memory and to prevent the harmful effects of Cortisol, the hormone that is responsible for accelerating the aging process in people and in your pet.
    Digestive Enzyme Supplements for Your Pet
    Digestive Enzymes are produced by the salivary glands, stomach, pancreas and liver and are released into the digestive tract. Enzymes help your pet’s body to breakdown proteins, fats and carbohydrates in his food so they can be absorbed and utilized.
    Your pet’s production of enzymes naturally decreases with increasing age. Illnesses, stress, food intolerances, allergies and drugs like antibiotics also have a negative affect on enzyme production and function. This can result in a variety of digestive disturbances ranging from flatulence and gas to diarrhea, life threatening dehydration and malnutrition.
    Digestive Enzymes are vital to maintain your pet’s overall health. They improve the efficiency of digestion so your pet’s body can utilize the nutrients essential for energy production and ultimately for life itself.
    They help the body to recover from disease and promote restoration of good health in your pet. Enzymes are useful to reduce pain and swelling after exercise or trauma and help speed up recovery rates.

    The effects of antioxidants are beneficial and act synergistically for people and pet’s undergoing cancer therapy. In well controlled studies, people and pets treated with antioxidants (with or without chemotherapy and radiation) have tolerated treatments better and experienced less weight loss. More importantly, they enjoyed a better overall quality of life and lived longer than individuals receiving no supplements.
    Nutritional Supplements for Your Pet’s Bones, Joints & Cartilage
    Glucosamine is an amino sugar naturally produced in your pet’s body from glucose, which is your pet’s blood sugar, and the Amino Acid, Glutamine. It helps the cartilage between the joints retain water so the cartilage can act like a cushion to absorb shock and withstand compression. Glucosamine is vital to protecting the health and integrity of your pet’s bones, joints and cartilage. It helps to:
    Decrease joint inflammation and pain
    Promote cartilage repair
    Aid healing of damaged joints
    Increase mobility in pets with arthritis and hip dysplasia
    Glucosamine is also a normal component of the urinary bladder in pet’s and cat’s and may help to relieve urinary disorders.
    MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is a natural source of sulfur that works along with Glucosamine to help protect the health and integrity of your pet’s bones, joints and cartilage.
    Essential Fatty Acid Supplements for Your Pet
    Essential Fatty Acids are vital to life and support all bodily functions in your pet. They help to keep cell membranes soft and pliable, so your pet’s cells can absorb dietary nutrients. They enhance your pet’s skin and hair coat and are needed for the normal development of the nervous system and brain.
    Fatty Acids are vital to brain health and help to preserve mental clarity. They decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in pets, cats and people. Fatty Acids may reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure, as well as provide therapeutic effects in your pet for: Arthritis, Lupus, Inflammatory bowel disease,
    Cancer therapy, Kidney disorders
    Flea allergies, food intolerances and bacterial skin infections can often be relieved by providing your pet with fatty acid supplements.
    The proper balance of Fatty Acids helps to reduce wear and tear on your pet’s body by decreasing stress triggered increases in cholesterol and the stress hormone Cortisol. Research indicates that the ratio of 5:1 of Omega 6 to Omega 3 Fatty Acids seems to provide the greatest clinical benefits, surpassing that of any individual Fatty Acid alone.
    Amino Acid Supplements for Your Pet
    Glutamine is the most abundant Amino Acid in the body. It is the major energy source for the cells that line the digestive system and strengthens your pet’s natural defense system known as the immune system.
    Glutamine promotes healing of the digestive system thereby reducing bowel disorders. It spares protein and reduces muscle loss during periods of injury, stress and high endurance activities. Therefore it is especially beneficial for pets recovering from trauma and for working and show pets.
    Glutamine also has many anti-aging effects. It helps to preserve memory and to prevent the harmful effects of Cortisol, the hormone that is responsible for accelerating the aging process in people and in your pet.
    Digestive Enzyme Supplements for Your Pet
    Digestive Enzymes are produced by the salivary glands, stomach, pancreas and liver and are released into the digestive tract. Enzymes help your pet’s body to breakdown proteins, fats and carbohydrates in his food so they can be absorbed and utilized.
    Your pet’s production of enzymes naturally decreases with increasing age. Illnesses, stress, food intolerances, allergies and drugs like antibiotics also have a negative affect on enzyme production and function. This can result in a variety of digestive disturbances ranging from flatulence and gas to diarrhea, life threatening dehydration and malnutrition.
    Digestive Enzymes are vital to maintain your pet’s overall health. They improve the efficiency of digestion so your pet’s body can utilize the nutrients essential for energy production and ultimately for life itself.
    They help the body to recover from disease and promote restoration of good health in your pet. Enzymes are useful to reduce pain and swelling after exercise or trauma and help speed up recovery rates. Enzymes support your pet’s immune system thereby enhancing his ability to ward off disease and infection. They have been also been used effectively in cancer therapy for people and pets.

  • Modern Miracle Nutrients

    Plant Sterols/Sterolins: Modern Miracle Nutrients

    Is pet intake of sterols adequate?
    Whenever there is any abnormal dietary intake pattern such as a stress, sustained illness, or old age, then there is an increased risk of plant sterol deficiencies and therefore by implication, a lowered immune function. While these compounds are essential nutrients for efficient functioning of the canine body, the modern canine diet is generally deficient in fresh fruit and vegetables and therefore there are deficiencies in sterol serum levels. In addition, plant sterols are bound to the fibers of the plant and are difficult to digest, particularly in dogs with a less efficient digestion such as senior canines. To be able to consume 100mg of plant sterols daily, a canine would have to eat about 500 – 700g (18-25oz.) of fresh fruit and vegetables every day. Modern dog food processing and refining remove the plant sterols from many basic foods and leave the diet deficient. Cooking does not destroy these sterols and sterolins but boiling water may remove some of the sterolins. Freezing vegetables may destroy the sterolin portion of the plant sterols through enzymatic action and so denude the diet of these essential nutrients.In animals there is a higher serum and tissue level of sitosterol and sitosterolin in proportion to cholesterol than in humans, and any artificial feeding, which deprives the animal of plant foods, could result in biochemical disorder and serious health consequences.
    How do sterols/sterolins work? The two major cell types of the immune system are collectively known as lymphocytes and these consist of the B-cells and the T-cells. When the canine body encounters antigens, which may be in the form of bacteria, viruses, parasites or other foreign proteins, there is a response mechanism that results in the development of specific T cells. This response mechanism is assisted by a number of chemical mediators known as cytokines, interleukins and lymphokines. Two of the most important cytokines are Interleukin 2 (IL2) and Interleukin 6 (IL6). Interleukin 2 (IL2) is a T cell growth factor but it also has cytolytic activity in certain specialized T cells (cytotoxic cells) and natural killer cells (NK cells). IL2 is abnormally secreted by cells of dogs affected by immune compromised diseases. Interleukin 6 (IL6) is elevated in the serum of dogs with auto immune diseases. It has been found that canines with BPH have elevated IL6 levels in the prostate and this leads to increased binding of testosterone in prostatic tissue.
    Gamma interferon (IFN) inhibits viral replication and stimulates the cytotoxic ability of natural killer cells. Natural killer cells are cytotoxic with the major target being virus infected or cancer cells. Sterols and sterolins have a powerful proliferative effect on lymphocytes therefore increasing the production of IL2, gamma interferon (IFN) and natural killer cells. On the other hand sitosterols have an effect similar to GH on the canine body where they inhibit the secretion of IL6 and help mediate the amount of Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF), which in general is catabolic and pro-inflammatory. The major benefits therefore of the activity of sterols and sterolins on the immune system is the enhanced function of IL2 and gamma interferon and a decrease in the activity of IL6 and TNF. These functions are immunomodulating and therapeutic in pathologies of immune disorder. Bio-Enhancement TheraPlex contains potent sterols. Sterols benefit against autoimmune diseases. Like antioxidants, sterols boost the immune system and improve health safely and naturally and keep a healthy immune system healthy. Better Than Vitamins…….. Sterols and Sterolins are plant “fats” that are present in fruits and vegetables, seeds, etc. They are bound to the fibers of the plant, and for this reason, they are difficult for dogs to obtain during the normal digestion process. Plus, the food and pet food industry has removed or destroyed the sterols through their processing. In addition, the canine modern-day diet is low to devoid in plant material, and we need to enhance the canine diet with sterols. Help Pet’s Help Themselves…

    Sterols can help the canine body by stimulating the immune system and helping the body fight off autoimmune diseases. Dogs who suffer from: Cancer, prostate problems, stress, arthritis, allergies, colds, psoriasis, ulcers, tuberculosis, and effects of chemo and radiation therapy should benefit from sterols.

    Athletic canines have found benefits by using sterols, which help reduce inflammation and attacks upon the immune system associated with intense athletics. How to Boost Your Dog’s Immune System…….. A healthy canine should take 1 tablespoon per 20-lbs. or more as needed every other day (3 times a week.) Dogs facing an immunological health problem should take TheraPlex daily. Most dogs experience results in 90 days.

    Never underestimate the power of nutrition. The effect of the phytosterols on the canine system offer several advantages in that they have no toxicity and have been extensively tested in animal studies. What are plant sterols/sterolins? One of the most profoundly significant developments in the past few years is the discovery of the action in the body of the plant sterols and sterolins. These are potent phytochemicals found in a variety of botanical sources. There are a number of different sterols and these include the principal phytosterol, which is known as sitosterol. In addition to sitosterol the most common sterols include campesterol, sitostanol and stigmasterol. The glucoside of sitosterol is known as sitosterolin and in plants it is always found together with the sterol. The ratio of sterol to sterolin varies in the plant kingdom ranging from 5% to 10% but in some cases being higher. Sterols are essential cell membrane components and the maintenance of adequate serum levels in dogs seems to be necessary for an efficient immune system. Seeds are the richest source of the sterols and sterolins which is why we leave the seed in, and yet, the refining processes applied by the food industry render the staple foods useless because they remove the sterols and sterolins to make the product more appealing to the eye. For instance, in order to prevent precipitation of the fats in so-called “cold pressed oils,” the oil is heated and refined to remove the sterols / sterolins. Sterols and sterolins have been shown to modulate the functions of the T-Cells both in vitro and in vivo by enhancing their cellular division.

    Sitosterol assists in the conversion of linoleic acid to polyunsaturated fatty acids. This process is essential for the conversion of the Omega 6 fatty acids to prostaglandins and leukotrienes. Prostaglandins and leukotrienes are hormone like substances which are involved in immune support; they assist in the reduction of thrombo-embolic disorders by reducing platelet aggregation and they also assist in the reduction of inflammatory metabolites. Sitosterol can be metabolized to pregnenolone and therefore to GH and the other hormones derived from pregnenolone and its analogues. In the canine body there is a steady decline with age in the production of GH, which is the master hormone responsible for the synthesis of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and others. Sitosterol has an enormous potential for supporting the endocrine system in senior canines and, by implication, increasing their longevity. Conclusion There appears to be a universal attempt to return to botanical and so called natural products. Recent extensive research into the activity and prevalence of active phytochemicals in fruit and vegetables has revealed an enormous potential in health promoting properties. Plant sterols and sterolins are a group of phytochemicals with great promise for immunomodulation and therapeutic advantage over a wide range of disease conditions. It is these safe efficacious ingredients that hold great promise for the maintenance of wellness. We believe that sterols and sterolins are modern miracle nutrients, and that the specialized combination of the two represents a breakthrough in the nutritional world.

    BD™ Minerals

    Natural Montmorillonitic Colloidal Silicate Minerals Trace Element Catalysts with Ion Exchange Factors in their Natural Synergistic Relationship

    NONSWELLING,  NONTOXIC, 100% Naturally Chelated, Pharmaceutical Grade

    Montmorillonitic – identifies this particular type of silicate mineral composition as having an extensive ION EXCHANGE capability by virtue of the minute particle size characteristic of the colloidal structure.
    Colloidal – is a condition and not a kind of mineral: the fine dust-like mineral particle size when their activity prevents them from settling out as molecules of their particular inorganic element. Particles larger than one micron are generally regarded as outside the colloidal range. Mineral elements in a colloidal state are largely in an available condition ready for immediate utilization by plant and animal life.
    Silicate Minerals – or clay mineral systems are Nature’s “storehouse” for the largest group of chemical elements in the mineral kingdom.
    Trace Elements – are chemical elements used by organisms in minute quantities and held essential to their physiology – a branch of biology dealing with organic processes, activities, and phenomena incidental to an organism or any of its parts, and characteristic of life or of living matter. The role of trace elements is catalytic, although not necessarily exclusively so. They play a most important part in many organic processes which they help to regulate when present in quantities as small as parts per million or parts per billion: e.g. copper is reported to be effective in plant life when present in a concentration as low as one part per 10 million, molybdenum is effective when present in one part per 200 million, and cobalt is effective when present is one part per billion. While the quantity of any one element may be small and effective compared to another, no element functions alone, but only in conjunction with others, equally as important.
    Catalyst – is a word coined by the great Swedish Chemist Berzelius to describe substances that speed up chemical reactions but which come through these reactions themselves unchanged.
    Ion Exchange Factors – are associated with the electrical phenomena growth. All organic activities and processes of growth in any living organism, or any metabolic function associated with sustaining life of any kind, requires elements of ion exchange. CATIONS: (+) carrying a positive electrical charge, and ANIONS: (-) having a negative potential are constituents of acids, bases, and salts that become active as electrolytes (conductors) in aqueous solutions such as fermentations. Thus, life in its broadest sense is electrical – derived from chemical elements.
    Synergistic – working together – relationship and mineral and interrelationships between trace elements and other nutrients is helping to develop new concepts of the function and vital importance of trace elements, which at one time were regarded as contaminants and were not studied with any great interest until recently.
    Nonswelling – permits the free action of colloidal silicate elements to function efficiently with the elements of the atmosphere in the aqueous solutions in plant or animal life.
    Nontoxic – as the word implies, are element is quantities that do not exceed the tolerance level and safety index established by scientific research. As far as is known, the danger of elements exceeding tolerance levels is remote in the natural nonswelling montmorillonic type of colloidal silicate mineral compounds.

    Isn’t it just amazing

    how some of these single serving tubs, or tubes and canned pet foods for both dogs and cats have all the gorgeous “meats, veggies and gravy”… wow!.. How do they do it? Seems like it would cost $10 a tub… nope, just about 25 cents, mostly for the packaging. You could put them in the human food aisle and never hardly know better. Especially if you’re a vegetarian that’s used to Seitan and Tofu which do have a form of “protein” allowing for dressing up the guaranteed analysis to appear to enhance the nutritional value because they do not have to disclose the source or quality of the protein value. This type of “protein” is very incomplete and barely useable by our carnivorous dogs and cats and are cooked intensely which kills the scarce nutrition. Seitan and Tofu are used to to make what’s known as mock meats and can be cut and molded and even imprinted with very realistic flesh and skin patterns to emulate real meat. The Seitan in particular is very realistic looking but it’s made by coagulating wheat gluten (an absolutely horrid ingredient for dogs and cats — toxic shock) and what’s more is it’s further disguised with rich looking gravy which is also highly wheat gluten based. Then sprinkle a few cents worth of peas and carrots and the counterfeit is complete, but your pets health is not fooled just their unwitting humans. We have all seen the commercials with the master chef that’s serving his dog a seemingly super healthy gourmet meal — (rhymes with pitiful). Wheat gluten, also called seitan (pronounced /ˈseɪtæn/), wheat meat, Mock Duck, gluten meat, or simply gluten, is a food made from the gluten of wheat. It is made by washing wheat flour dough with water until all the starch dissolves, leaving insoluble gluten as an elastic mass which is then cooked before being eaten. Editorial comment regarding pet food: Truth be fully told, it’s not even real Sietan/Tofu, it’s a hybrid of trash scraps from factories that make chips and cakes and cookies etc. Wheat gluten, although not as well known, is an alternative to soybean-based meat substitutes such as tofu. Some types of wheat gluten have a chewy and/or stringy texture more like that of meat than most other substitutes. Wheat gluten is often used instead of meat.

    Comforting Images?

    Please note: no matter what comforting images commercial pet foods put on their bags the fact is they may be up to 95% reclaimed flour based scrap: chips, cakes, cookies, breads, pastries…Commercial pet food preys upon plausible deniability and your suspended disbelief Your pet deserves pure, vital, nutrients.

  • Innovation

    Innovation

    Balance Diet™ has been on the cutting edge of pet food nutrition technology and product innovation since 1984. We were the first and only company to use true biological fermentation technology (VitaMethod™) to revolutionize pet nutrition, the first company in the world to market biological nutriceuticals, and the only company to manufacture these and other innovative products utilizing our proprietary VitaMethod™.

    Commitment

    Our commitment is to provide you with the purest, most effective pet nutrition products available in the world. Integrity without compromise Our highest priority is Pet health. BD™ is the genuine and the original. Today, toxic inorganic inert toxic unregulated forign ingredients are widely used in the commercial mass pet food industry. Fertilizers are used which deplete our soils of nutrients. Therefore the soils are not being replenished to add adequate values of vitamins and minerals to our crops and produce (no longer using open pollination, mostly bioengineered), as well as the pollutants and toxins. Our livestock is fed from the foods raised in the nutrient depleted soils, affecting our food supply. BD is many times more nutritious because it is concentrated through our proprietary VitaMethod (fermentation). Enzyme activity naturally cleanses pollutants and toxins. BD is enzyme rich which improves digestion and contains much predigested matter (poor digestion is at the heart of many diseases.) This is why we use human grade and or organic ingredients and have reintroduced state-of-the-art natural biological vitamin and mineral supplements created utilizing our Vitamethod into the fermentations to be absorbed by the living microorganisms (nitrification). University studies have proven that animals live longer on high concentrations of balanced vitamins, minerals, and nutrients without consuming large quantities of food, a low caloric diet. Dense concentrations of nutrients in a low calorie diet have shown to provide optimal results. The low caloric intake is a result of reduced consumption. Less food with more nutrients is easier on the digestive tract and causes very low insulin secretions (hormone) resulting in a lower caloric intake. High caloric intake causes high insulin levels, which can lead to hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, neurological and brain disorders, and cholesterol complications.
