Our review of Iams ProActive Health Salmon Recipe Adult Dry Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble compound. This antioxidant provides protection against free radicals, and helps prevent vitamin E deficiency, which can lead to nerve problems. Vitamin E helps your pet’s immune system, eyes, liver, heart, muscles, nervous system, skin, and coat.
The second ingredient is Folic Acid. Folate, also known as vitamin B9 and folacin, is one of the B vitamins. Manufactured folic acid, which is converted into folate by the body, is used as a dietary supplement and in food fortification as it is more stable during processing and storage.
The third ingredient is Vitamin D3. Cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D3 and colecalciferol, is a type of vitamin D which is made by the skin when exposed to sunlight; it is also found in some foods and can be taken as a dietary supplement. It is used to treat and prevent vitamin D deficiency and associated diseases, including rickets.
The fourth ingredient is Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body: it is a cofactor in DNA synthesis, and in both fatty acid and amino acid metabolism. It is particularly important in the normal functioning of the nervous system via its role in the synthesis of myelin, and in the maturation of developing red blood cells in the bone marrow.
The fifth ingredient is Niacin. Niacin is a B vitamin that is also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid. Niacin is a natural compound that can be derived from legumes and animal products including organ meat, eggs, and more. Added niacin helps your pet metabolize basic nutrients including protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this Iams ProActive Health Salmon Recipe Adult Dry Cat Food.
