Daily Health Nuggets FAQ

“The original concept of developing the Daily Health Nuggets was based upon my concern that the high temperature of cooking dry and canned commercial pet foods destroyed most of the vital nutrients, vitamins and enzymes. And, although these foods were chemically correct, they were nutritionally void. The concept of fortifying these overly processed foods by adding an additional 30% of extra vitamins to compensate for the loss of cooking didn’t make sense to me. As a result, I developed the DHN to “Naturally Fortify” the over-processed foods and add back what was destroyed by cooking”.

1. My pet’s food is 100% complete, why should I supplement with Daily Health Nuggets?

Most diets are subjected to high heat, which destroys much of the food’s essential nutrients. Dogs and cats, like humans, cannot flourish on over-processed heat exposed foods. Daily Health Nuggets are cold-pressed and retain 100% of their available nutrients. Daily Health Nuggets provide the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients and omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids that dogs and cats need and crave for optimal health!

2. What are the benefits of feeding my pet Daily Health Nuggets?

The benefits are endless! Loaded with Raw Super-Foods, Daily Health Nuggets have powerful immune boosting benefits for every dog and cat. Loaded with Antioxidants, Phytonutrients, Enzymes, Probiotics and Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. You will see noticeable improvements (coat, skin, eyes, energy etc.) in as little as two weeks! Your pet goes from “Surviving” to THRIVING!

3. What are Phytonutrients?

Phytonutrients are bioactive plant-derived compounds associated with positive health effects. Phytonutrients, also referred to as phytochemicals (“phyto” meaning “plant”), are the chemical compounds that give fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, teas, legumes and spices their color. The colors specific to each fruit and vegetable result from the compounds and support immune function and overall health.

4. Define “bio-availability”

Bio-Availability is the degree to which food nutrients are available for digestion, absorption and utilization by the body.

5. What is the benefit of adding taurine to the Daily Health Nugget Dog formula?

Taurine, an amino acid, is vital for both overall health and specifically for the proper functioning of the heart & eyes. In general, dogs can synthesize taurine in sufficient quantities to meet their requirements. Given the recent FDA advisory of a possible link between grain- free diets and dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs, we decided that taurine should be included in our Daily Health Nuggets for Dogs.

6. Daily Health Nuggets are raw, are they safe?

YES, every batch of Daily Health Nuggets is twice tested for salmonella, listeria and E-coli to ensure the health and safety of each and every nugget. We test both the incoming raw materials and the finished product.

7. In a nutshell what are the benefits of Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids?

Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids are beneficial for the skin, heart, kidneys, brain, joints and nerves. Additionally, Omega 3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation.

8. Describe Daily Health Nuggets in three sentences.

They complete and boost your pet’s daily diet and supports them from “surviving” to THRIVING. They are a “one-of-a-kind”, natural and TASTY science-based supplement. Daily Health Nuggets contain LIVING nutrients that optimize the daily nutritional needs of dogs and cats.”

9. How long before I see a noticeable improvement in my pet?

It depends on the pet but many notice improvements in the coat, skin and eyes within 2 to 4 weeks.

10. Your lecithin is derived from soy, isn’t soy an allergen to many pets?

Soy lecithin consists primarily of phospholipids. Most allergies are tied to proteins and soy lecithin does not contain any soy protein. Additionally, soy allergies in dogs and cats are rare. We have been selling Daily Health Nuggets for over 25 years with thousands of repeat customers, with no evidence of a negative reaction to lecithin. In fact, pets experience dramatic improvements and relief of most allergy symptoms. Lecithin helps soothe the skin, improves dry skin and promotes regrowth of hair.

11. My dog has an allergy to chicken, I noticed the Daily Health Nuggets for Dogs include chicken as the fifth ingredient. Will my dog have an allergic reaction?

Food allergies occur when an animal’s immune system misidentifies a protein from a food as an invader rather than a food item and mounts an immune response. Our Daily Health Nuggets contain natural chicken flavor and not intact chicken protein. Your dog should not experience an allergic reaction to the Daily Health Nuggets.

12. I’ve heard flax seed is less accessible to dogs as a source of Omega 3-Fatty Acids.

We don’t agree. Flax is extremely high in alpha linolenic acid and lignans, which can improve cardiovascular health and can help fight cancer. Flax seed is also high in beneficial fiber and is a natural carrier for vitamins, fruits and vegetables in the Daily Health Nuggets. Fiber is important for a dogs and cats digestive health, while protein provides energy and keeps the immune system strong. Flax seed also contains anti-inflammatory properties to help ease symptoms of arthritis, lower blood pressure, improve kidney function, and maintain a healthy skin and coat in dogs.

13. Why do you use Garbanzo Beans in Daily Health Nuggets?

Chickpeas a.k.a. garbanzo beans are an incredible “super food” and loaded with nutritional benefits. Garbanzo beans help control blood sugar levels by providing a sustained source of energy. Garbanzo beans are also a great source of vitamins and minerals including Iron, Zinc, Folate, Phosphorus, and B vitamins.

14. I’m feeding my pet a raw food that is not nutritionally complete. Do you recommend supplementing Daily Health Nuggets?

Yes, and in addition, we recommend supplementing a raw diet with Earth Animal’s Daily Raw.

15. What is Cold-Pressed and what are the benefits?

Do you cook your vitamins? Why would you cook your pet’s vitamins? We use a unique no heat “cooking method” that locks in all the nutrients to maintain the highest degree of integrity, including enzymes and probiotics, while preserving the robust smell and palatability of each flavor.

16. Please explain the benefits of using sprouted seeds.

Sprouted seeds are packed with energy in the form of nutrients and enzymes that give “rise” to the plant. All nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in sprouted seeds are 100% bio-available. Sprouted seeds have remarkable levels of B Vitamins, as well as Vitamins C, E, and A. Some refer to sprouts as “pre-digested” food due to the plants birthing process that occurs in the sprouting stage of life. This makes the sprouted seeds far easier to digest than the original seed, bean, nut, or grain. The heightened quantity of enzymes is another factor that aids in their digestion. Sprouted seeds help the digestive process and keeps raw living nutrition flowing to all the cells of the body.

17. Do you guarantee the level of probiotics in Daily Health Nuggets?

Our Guaranteed Analysis lists lactic acid producing bacteria, commonly known as probiotics. Because our Daily Health Nuggets are cold-pressed, we are able to provide viable probiotics with minimum levels. Other treats or supplements may contain the same ingredients; however, they are unable to guarantee their levels due to their exposure to heat or the kill step that is used to ensure food safety. The kill step does not discriminate between good or bad bacteria.

18. What ailments benefit most from Daily Health Nuggets?
