When you choose a feed or supplement for your dog, horse or alpaca, you rightly want and expect your animal to benefit fully from the nutrients it provides. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and many owners find themselves paying out for products that are not producing results.
Your Animal’s Uptake of Nutrients
Many nutrients can be easily absorbed by the body, but some of the most important active ingredients found in animal feeds and nutritional supplements can’t always be fully utilised.
For example, you may choose a joint supplement for your dog that contains high levels of glucosamine which is important for maintaining cartilage and healthy joints.
Sadly, without the right carrier, your dog or horse will likely only absorb between 10% and 25% of the actives, meaning that 75% to 90% is simply passed – and with it, most of the beneficial effects. Not only that, unabsorbed actives like glucosamine can become an irritant in the lower bowel and cause digestive upsets.
What Makes GWF Nutrition Products Different?
The Oatinol™ Delivery System is a groundbreaking concept that changes all that – and it’s used in all our products to make sure you get the very best results.
Using a unique blend of oils, including hemp oil and oat oil, Oatinol™ produces a very fine emulsion in the gut, and one which can easily pass through the high fat content cells that line the gut into the bloodstream.
This emulsion can bind with the larger molecules of certain nutrients and easily engulf small glucosamine molecules and carry them through the gut membrane, via several pathways, to be processed.
This pioneering approach to nutrition means a higher rate of absorption is maintained by your animal’s digestive tract with good bioavailability of important nutrients.
