Brown Rice
A nutritious source of vitamins, minerals, tocotrienols, and fiber. Carbohydrate and starch sources such as brown rice are not a necessary component of a companion animal's diet, but they can be fed in moderation and variety with nutritional benefits. For an alternative, see our Epigen™ diet.
Extruded Soybeans
An excellent vegetable source of protein, fiber, natural unsaturated fat, and antioxidants.
Pea Protein
A concentrated source of protein with an excellent spectrum of amino acids.
Potato Protein
Potato protein is potato minus the starch. It is one of the highest value vegetable proteins there is.
Soybean Oil
Contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Flaxseeds
A plant source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Molasses
A rich source of minerals and natural flavoring for non-meat based diets.
Peas
A nutritious vegetable rich in protein, phyto-nutrients, phytosterols, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Peas are also a good source of vitamins A, C, K and B.
Dicalcium Phosphate
Dicalcium phosphate is a source of calcium and phosphorus with high bioavailability. Calcium and phosphorus are essential for healthy bone and teeth formation. They also play vital roles in blood metabolism, muscle contraction, and nerve function.
Natural Flavor
Derived from natural ingredients, and included for the purposes of palatability enhancement.
Sesame Seeds
Particularly rich in the amino acid methionine. They also contain B-complex vitamins, protein, essential fatty acids, and essential minerals such as calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc.
Montmorillonite Clay
Sourced form an ancient geologic deposit of marine life.
Salt
Not standard, refined table salt. Wysong whole salt is mined from ancient trace mineral rich geological deposits.
Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a natural source of healthful fatty acids.
Taurine
An essential amino acid for cats and arguably for dogs as well. Taurine can be diminished in food processing and should be supplemented. It exerts a host of benefits for the cardiovascular, ocular, and central nervous systems. It is also an antioxidant and is important in muscular response to exercise. Many Wysong ingredients are excellent sources of taurine. However, as insurance, taurine is also supplemented to the diets.
Lysine
Lysine is commonly insufficient in modern diets and is important for the synthesis of proteins to promote proper growth and bone development. It also plays a role in the production of enzymes, antibodies, and hormones.
L-Tryptophan
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, meaning the body does not produce it and it must be provided through the diet. It serves as a building block for protein production and nitrogen balance. It is best known for maintaining nerve cell conduction, relaxation, restfulness, and sleep.
Choline Chloride
Choline is a B-complex vitamin which helps to build cell membranes, promote nerve function, and maintain normal growth. Choline also plays a significant role in fat metabolism, liver regulation, and renal protection.
L-Carnitine
Shuttles fatty acids into cell mitochondria where they are oxidized for energy. By so doing it decreases body fat and builds lean muscle by utilizing body fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. Proper fat metabolism becomes increasingly important as companion animals age and are prone to fat storage.
Chia Seeds
An excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Rice Bran Oil
A concentrated source of tocotrienols, fatty acids, and other antioxidants. It is extremely stable under processing conditions
Calcium Propionate
A preservative.
Dried Kelp
A particularly good source of trace minerals, such as iodine, potassium and calcium as well as vitamins.
Organic Barley Grass Powder
Harvested before the first joint rises above ground, this grass contains a wealth of bioavailable nutrients.
Citric Acid
Acts as a preservative by chelating oxidizing minerals.
Dried Spinach
A vegetable source of calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, and folic acid.
Apple Fiber
A high fiber ingredient derived from apples.
Mixed Tocopherols
A natural preservative.
Minerals
While minerals are in food ingredients themselves, fortification is wise. The safety and benefits of fortification are supported by countless scientific studies.
Vitamins
While vitamins are in food ingredients themselves, processing diminishes their levels and thus fortification is wise. The safety and benefits of fortification are supported by countless scientific studies.
Probiotics
Probiotic microorganisms exert a number of benefits including improving intestinal microbial balance, enzyme and vitamin production.
