All ingredients in this formula are chosen with Care. Most dental formulas on the market use cellulose as a source of insoluble fiber. Cellulose is a by-product of the pulp and paper industry; wood chips are chemically digested to obtain cellulose present in the plant's cell wall. Nutrience uses a natural grass called Miscanthus. Miscanthus grass is a sustainably farmed plant that is purposefully harvested for its insoluble fiber. Miscanthus grass is simply sun-dried and ground before being added to the food.
The importance of a good digestive system and healthy gut flora cannot be overstated when it comes to proper nutrient absorption. That's why every bag of Nutrience Care' includes Digestiboost ' made with ingredients like pumpkin, chicory root, turmeric and ginger to help support overall gut health.
