Fresh Foods Are Vital for Peak Health
Dr. Henning Karstrom, a Swedish expert in raw food therapy says, "Even though you get all 50 known nutrients in your diet (i.e., vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, fatty acids, etc.) your health will still suffer unless you also include large quantities of uncooked and unprocessed foods."
Fresh, live foods are essential to health and well-being.
As Dr. Karstrom has stated above, diets including fresh, live foods are essential to health and well-being. Because they are enzyme active, and have not had their nutritional substances destroyed or altered by heat, fresh foods can be utilized by the body in such a way that is chemically balanced by nature.
These fresh foods affect positive results, giving tissues, bones, and organs the necessary vitamins and minerals to function at their highest levels, as well as healing and strengthening the body as a whole.
Cooked or processed foods, however, are often unbalanced. A good example is the typical dog food diet which is often processed for long term storage requirements. Because of this, many of the vitamins and minerals in these diets have been destroyed or altered. Live enzymes are totally lost.
While these foods may stimulate one body system for the good, they often harm another. Therefore, we have dogs who seem to age prematurely because while their requirements for sustenance are met, their nutrient needs for peak health are not.
Scientific study shows that dietary intake has a direct correlation with health.
Francis M. Pottenger, an American physician, provided an excellent illustration of these facts.While working on a study of the adrenal system of cats, he began to notice that the animals' dietary intake had a direct correlation with their health.
His study group consisted of a colony of 900 cats with which he experimented over a course of 10 years. Pottenger fed the first group pasteurized milk, cod liver oil and cooked meat. He reported that these cats had a high incidence of allergies, sickness, and skeletal deformities which were passed on from generation to generation. As each new litter was born he also noted that there were fewer and fewer kittens per litter, and each had a significant drop in birth weight.
The second group of cats Pottenger worked with was fed only unpasteurized milk and raw meat. The difference between these cats and the first group was remarkable. Healthy, strong, good skeletal structure, and hardly any trace of sickness or allergies characterized this second group, and like the first, they passed these traits on to their offspring.
Beware of diets consisting of 100% cooked or processed foods.
Clearly, we can see from this study the inherent danger of a diet consisting of 100% cooked or processed foods, as well as the incredible benefits that fresh, live, and nutritionally saturated foods can bring.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an essential nutrient used by the body for tissue repair, in the repair of tissue , for creating neurotransmitters, and for the immune system. It is also a well known antioxidant. Vitamin C has been referred to as the “master vitamin” because of the enormous range of body functions that it assists. It's no wonder vitamin C is easily the most popular supplement for people. In recent years, it has become widely accepted that the absorption and utilization of vitamin C can be optimized by “support” from the nutrients such as bioflavonoids normally occurring with it in whole natural foods. These nutrients also play direct roles in body chemistry and are themselves enhanced by vitamin C.
C-Complex is the only true, fully supported vitamin C supplement for dogs and horses on the market. Because of its powerful synergistic qualities you will find that C-Complex is more cost effective than other vitamin C products.
Bee Pollen – A Full Spectrum of Live Enzymes & Bioflavonoids
The pollen in C-Complex is the most nutritional part of the plant. It contains a full spectrum of bioflavonoids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, fats, sugars, hormones and protective antioxidants. Studies have shown that pollen can remain alive and viable for 20 years or more.
Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex, Hesperidin & Rutin
Citrus bioflavonoid complex, hesperidin, and rutin are all bioflavonoids that support vitamin C, making it stronger and more effective than if taken alone. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids are powerful antioxidants that protect against free radicals that can harm the body and accelerate the degenerative effects of aging. The best available citrus bioflavonoid complex comes from baby orangettes harvested at peak nutritional potency. Baby orangettes are picked fresh, immediately freeze dried whole and powdered for full spectrum nutrition. The rutin contained in C-Complex is a powerful, non-citrus bioflavonoid purified at 97%.
"Eight year old Dam, five healthy pups"
I don't know how to thank you for such a great supplement. My Irish Setter who is 8 had her last litter of puppies. Now she can retire not only as a show dog but as a mom. I started giving her C-Complex when I learned she was having pups. She had five very healty, chubby pups as you can see. I believe C-Complex helped her during her pregnancy. She is wonderful mother and has more than enough milk.
Thank you again,
Anne M. Pellette, Meadow Run Irish Setters, California
