Introducing a game-changer on the feline world stage: Purina Pro Plan LiveClear - Feline nutrition that performs.





Purina Pro Plan has awakened the cat-loving world with a clinical study on cat hair and dander, which has produced life-changing results in allergen tolerance. It demonstrated a significant reduction in active Fel d 1 on hair and dander. So, what does this mean for cat lovers, and how does this breakthrough work? It's a blend of scientific ingenuity and feline nutrition, quietly revolutionising our interactions with our beloved furry companions.









What Does LiveClear Mean for Cat Lovers in South Africa?





Well, simply put, you can have your catto and snuggle it too! That's right, for all of us who may be allergic to cats or whose partners or kids are allergic to them, the rules of the game have changed. It's now possible to reduce allergens found in cat hair and dander by an average of 47%. This means you may well be able to toss your allergy medication and have a family group cuddle with Mr Whiskers or Ms Kitty.

How Does This Meow-velous Magic Happen?





Well, first up, all cattos produce a common allergen called Fel d 1 in their saliva, which causes an allergic reaction in us humans. Purina scientists discovered that an egg product ingredient containing antibodies to Fel d 1, the major cat allergen, can bind to Fel d 1 in the cat's saliva, preventing its ability to trigger an allergic response in a cat allergen-sensitised individual. So when cats eat Pro Plan LiveClear, a key protein sourced from eggs binds to the Fel d 1 and neutralises it, and the magic happens.





This discovery may lead to novel and exciting approaches for managing cat allergens while maintaining the normal production of Fel d 1 by the cat and without impacting the cat's overall physiology. These breakthrough findings can transform how people manage allergies to cats.





Science and Research Drive LiveClear Development:





More than a decade of science and research drives this incredible nutrition development. All you have to do is feed your catto delicious and highly nutritious Pro Plan LiveClear daily and then watch how this food tech shows its muscle as it significantly reduces the allergens in the cat hair and dander. Allergens are sent running simply and safely in a complete and balanced superfood maintenance diet for kitty-cats.

Cat's Crave It: Pro Plan LiveClear's Irresistible Flavour and Health Benefits!





Palatability (noun) Definition: How pleasant, enjoyable and appealing something is to eat. Now redefining palatability is Pro Plan LiveClear Chicken Formula with Probiotics dry food! This super premium cat food is now the password to mouthwatering taste and a fully satisfied feline purring away on the back of your couch.





High Digestibility (adjective + noun) Definition: Typically means that more nutrients can be absorbed and used by the body, making the food more beneficial for the animal's health. Pro Plan LiveClear is crafted to provide the proper digestion in your cat's gut, which has a profoundly positive impact on their long-term health. It also means less mess in the litter box, which is always a welcome feature for cat lovers everywhere!





Colostrum (noun) - a.k.a. The Immunity Warrior (noun phrase) Definition: Newborns absorb antibodies from their mother's first milk, colostrum, which is well known to offer immune protection. However, this adopted maternal immunity declines over time, creating a potential gap in protection while the kitten's own immune system is still maturing. This is known as the immunity gap.





Nutritional supplementation may help bridge this gap and provide protection against disease during this critical period of development. Purina research also shows that feeding the bioactives and antibodies in colostrum can provide benefits at any life stage.1 So there you have it - another fur-tastic benefit built into LiveClear!
