What is Porus One?
Porus One is a nutritional supplement used to support kidney health in your cat. It contains Renaltec, a selective carbon that adsorbs protein byproducts. Digestion and metabolism of proteins leads to waste products, which are typically excreted by the kidneys. Porus One binds protein digestion by-products in the intestines so they can be excreted in the feces. This binding process helps to prevent the byproducts from being converted into uremic toxins, which supports kidney health.
How Does Porus One Help with Uremic Toxins?
Cats eat proteins in their diet on a daily basis. When proteins are metabolized in the body, waste products called uremic toxins naturally form. These toxins are then filtered out by the kidneys and excreted in the urine.
When a cat’s kidneys no longer function as well as before, they filter out fewer uremic toxins. As a result, the toxins may accumulate in the body and cause damage to the kidneys and other organs.
Porus One adorbs toxins while they are still in the intestine and passes them out of the body in the feces. As a result, the toxins do not enter the kidneys and cannot accumulate in the body. This also helps reduce the workload on the kidneys.
Porus One contains Renaltec®, a pure carbon that is shaped into tiny spheres in a patented production process. Renaltec absorbs protein byproducts (uremic toxins) in the gut so they can be excreted in feces instead of the kidneys.
How To Use Porus One
Porus® One is easily mixed in with your cat’s wet or dry food. It is tasteless and odorless and generally well tolerated by cats.
This supplement may be used for cats with reduced kidney function or types of kidney disease or disorders. Like any supplement, it is always best to consult with your veterinarian to determine if the product best suit’s your cat’s needs. Your veterinarian is the best source of medical information for your cat.
