Episode Summary


When it comes to pets’ health and feeding, most of us have been taught to simply choose wet or dry food, buy it from the store, and feed our animals once or twice a day. There are, however, other ways we can support our pet’s health that often go unmentioned. “Diet is the brick and mortar of pet health,” points out Sierra Samuel, health coach and co-host of The C60 Show.

Many household pets are experiencing more serious health conditions than they have in the past. Currently, half of all dogs will experience cancer at some point in their lives, and many cats succumb to kidney diseases. Luckily, improving an animal’s nutrition can significantly lower that risk. Here we’ll look at certain ailments common to pets, how diet and nutrition can improve their lives, and how C60 Purple Power can support that endeavor. 

Health Concerns for Animals

Health Concerns for Animals

“The biggest problem that pets have is obesity, and that leads to a whole bunch of other things,” says Ken Swartz, scientist, and co-host of The C60 Show. Obesity has a negative impact on all functions within an animal’s body, leading to a higher risk of ailments, such as cancer, kidney disease, diabetes, and arthritis. These can, of course, occur without obesity, but it increases the chances a pet will incur one of these diseases.

Other common conditions affecting pets include eye problems, susceptibility to yeast, bacterial (giardia from streams and lakes) and viral infections (parvovirus, kennel cough, etc.), and the presence of parasites, such as fleas, ticks, and heartworm. Certain conditions can be prevented or vaccinated against using medications, including the aforementioned parasites, as well as distemper and rabies. For those that can’t, healthy exercise and a nutritious diet can make a big difference in managing your pet’s overall health.

Ways to Support Pet Health

One of the biggest problems with pet food, whether it’s dried or canned, is that these foods are pressure-cooked, destroying nutrients during high heat exposure. This also means that certain proteins are altered, becoming difficult for the body to absorb, and essential amino acids like lysine become bound to other molecules that pass through the digestive system without the ability to be processed and utilized by the pet. Because of this, any pets eating this type of food will benefit from the inclusion of daily vitamins and probiotics.

The fact is that pressure-cooked food, which is the vast majority of pet food on the market, simply does not contain, in a viable form, all the vitamins and nutrients that animals need to maintain optimal health. In addition, many of these foods contain known allergens as fillers, such as corn, wheat, and soy. These grains and legumes are difficult for animals to digest, and if they are eating them regularly, this can contribute to long-term health problems.

If possible, switch to a raw diet, which has been shown to greatly increase the health of dogs and cats. However, specific guidelines must be followed to ensure they are getting the correct types and ratios of raw foods (i.e., a certain percentage should be organ meats and possibly vegetables. They can’t only eat raw muscle meats). If you cannot make the change to raw feeding, vitamin, and probiotic supplementation is still helpful in conjunction with grain-free options of conventional pet food.

If you’re concerned your pet is getting too much or too little food, check for the recommended amount based on your pet’s ideal weight. Account for treats given throughout the day and keep track of feeding to ensure they are not accidentally fed multiple times by other family members.

The number of times animals need to be fed throughout the day also changes with age. Young puppies and kittens may need to be fed three times a day or more, while young adult dogs do well eating twice a day, ideally within a span of 8 hours, to let their digestive system rest in the off-hours. Adult cats and older dogs may be fine eating once a day; talk to your vet if you are unsure about the best ways to schedule feeding.

Incorporating C60 for Pet Health

“In C60 studies, C60 doubled the lifespan of animals, and it did that primarily by preventing age-related disease and cognitive decline,” shares Ken.1 Because C60 contains unparalleled antioxidant properties without the risk of toxicity, it can address oxidative stress (i.e., reactive oxidative species (ROS), also known as free radicals) in both humans and animals. Providing your pets with several important physical and mental health benefits. As oxidative stress is at the root of many health concerns, including inflammatory conditions, allergies, and the so-called physical and cognitive “decline” related to aging.

Studies have demonstrated that C60 oils for pets have the ability to neutralize ROS, manages, by extension, inflammatory response (which is related to allergies and arthritis), supports healthy vision, promotes cognitive and immune function, supports healthy weight and energy, and promotes a long and healthy lifespan in animals.2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Understanding Dosage

Because C60 Purple Power uses certified organic oils as a carrier, it is safe for most pets to consume. Olive oil is a good option for most animals, as is the MCT coconut oil (although it’s advised to avoid this if your pet is sensitive to grasses). Avocado oil is a good choice for dogs and cats (birds should not be fed any avocado products). If you’re unsure of which carrier oil to choose or if you have any other concerns regarding your pet’s health, it’s advisable to talk with your vet.

For preventative maintenance, daily doses can be measured as follows (doses can be increased during cases of illness or chronic health conditions, with no risk of toxicity):

  • 0-25 lbs. – ¼ teaspoon
  • 26-50 lbs. – ½ teaspoon
  • 50-100 lbs. – 1 teaspoon
  • 100+ lbs. – 1 teaspoon per 100 lbs.

C60 supports health at the cellular level, promoting optimal function in every part of your pet’s body.

Testimonial

“My 14-year-old dog was in really bad shape on the night before C60 Purple Power arrived. He was lethargic and didn’t want to get up. He was scared to go down the stairs without me putting a leash on him and walking with him…I was really worried it was not going to be long before he passed. When the C60 Purple Power arrived, I soaked some (1 tsp) on some treats. 2 hours later, I repeated the same dose. Another 2 hours later, I repeated it again. The next morning, I gave him 1 more tsp with more kibble…When I came back home that evening, he acknowledged me, got up on his own 10 minutes later, and started barking at me to go for a walk. He managed the stairs really well…It’s now about 30 hours later. His appetite is much better than it was a week ago. Not bad for 4 teaspoons of C60 Purple Power for a 14-year-old, 80-pound dog.” – Vera S.
