Royal Canin Pure Feline Lively cat food to support your cat’s vitality – healthy nutrition with active plant-based components.

The consideration of feline needs combined with a substantial knowledge of active plant-based components makes it possible to effectively apply these components in order to promote the health of the animal. A split second is enough for a cat to change from motionless to full activity. From a standstill, cats can jump impressively high and can run 100 m in approx. 9 seconds. However, today their lifestyles are very similar to those of their human companions: they live more and more often in the city in an increasingly quiet and docile lifestyle. Even when cats spend their lives indoors, they need the opportunity to let out certain natural behaviours. In order to counteract the effects of age, plant-based components can be used in the diet, which usually serve to protect the plants themselves. These include ginsenosides (from the ginseng root), lycopenes (that give tomatoes their bright red colour), and polyphenols from the leaves of green tea. All of these components have potential as antioxidants, which means that they fight attacks from the free radicals that are responsible for cell-aging. All of these plant-based ingredients ensure that the organism doesn’t lose its vitality in advanced age.
