In recent veterinarian research, scientists studied the effects of improved nutrition on the lives of 90 senior cats. All of the cats were between ages 7-17, and the new diets were fed over the remaining course of their lifetimes. The cats were separated into three groups: one received a standardized, nutritionally-balanced diet; one received the same diet with increased levels of antioxidants; and the last received the same diet supplemented with increased levels of antioxidants, Omega-3 essential fatty acids and probiotics. Comprehensive tests were conducted over the five-year period of the study, including various blood, urinalysis and body composition measures. Results strongly indicated a correlation between the diet of the third group (the one with the highest level of nutrition) and measures of health and longevity.
