Pet Naturals of Vermont K-9 Slim Down Plus is an advanced weight loss support formula that features a synergistic combination of ingredients to help support weight loss in overweight dogs. Green Tea Extract (containing EGCG) and Chromium Polynicotinate were added to K-9 Slim Down Plus to promote even greater weight loss. K-9 Slim Down Plus supports thermogenesis and lipolysis (greater fat burning) activity and helps normalize insulin and glucose metabolism, which helps control appetite.
K-9 Slim Down Plus for Dogs contains the clinically tested carb blocker Phase 2 Pet to support weight loss. Pet Naturals of Vermont is one of the first companies to introduce a Phase 2 Pet weight loss product for dogs. Phase 2 Pet contains the first scientifically proven, all natural white bean extract for neutralizing starch to support weight loss. Phase 2 Pet is shown to cut starch absorption up to 75%, reducing absorption of carbohydrate calories to support weight loss without the use of stimulants.
A published study shows loss of weight and inches! In a veterinary conducted trial published July 2004 in the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, 15 dogs showed an average weight loss of almost 5% of their body weight over an eight week period and an average abdominal girth reduction of 1.44 inches per dog due solely to use of Phase 2 Pet. By blocking starch carbohydrates as a source of energy, the dogs were forced to burn body fat for energy. The weight loss seen in this study was attributed to loss of fat and not loss of muscle.
Pet Naturals of Vermont K-9 Slim Down Plus is an amazing blend which features:
- EGCG from green tea extract, a potent antioxidant that helps boost metabolism, maintain insulin levels within normal ranges (promoting the burning of fat), and to control appetite.
- Chromemate brand Chromium polynicotinate, a niacin-bound chromium, which research shows is a safe and bioavailable form of chromium supplementation that supports appetite control, building of muscle, and the burning of fat.
