Catnip is a relative of the mint family and when you compare
the two, you can see just how similar
they look (and smell). Both plants
are edible, and have a history of being used for a wide range
of ailments in
both humans and cats. Catnip has been claimed to help toothaches, diarrhea, colic, help prevent miscarriages,
premature birth, morning sickness, spasms, headache, and even to help you get to sleep (and more)!
Like many natural substances, they have a wide range of positive benefits.
And unlike many pharmaceuticals, that most often have only 1 'positive' effect and MANY negative, there are literally thousands
of such natural substances...and most have a wide range of BENEFITS, and rarely negatives!
Both mint tea and catnip
tea have been used for centuries for health, as well as many natural herbal substances, since the dawn of time.
These cats know what is good for them and now you do too... :)
Oh, its also believed to help keep things like fleas away, and supposed to be more effective than most bug sprays,
although we wouldn't recommend this as your only method of flea control.
Catnip has various effects on a cat from “Nepetalactone”. This is the active ingredient which drives cats crazy.
Lactones occur in everything from black pepper, to orange juice and wine.
Not all cats react to catnip;
estimates range anywhere from about 10%
to 30% of cats do not react.
Kittens generally do not react until 4 – 6
months old. Whether or not a cat
reacts to catnip depends on his or her
genetics. Most cats that react to catnip exhibit some or even all of
the following effects:
a) Rubbing and rolling in the catnip
b) Flipping side to side or ‘head over heels’
c) Licking and eating the catnip
d) Kitty can get slightly ‘purrplexed’, ‘feisty’ and ‘vocal’,
sometimes all at the same time!
e) They all have their own individual reactions; some kitties get very
active, some like to take a
nap, but it generally appears that they are
Smelling the catnip is enough to cause a reaction although
most cats also REALLY like eating it!

year with Diamond V®
“Several years ago Diamond V®
management noticed that the employees working in the manufacturing
rarely took time off for health-related events, a fact supported through
health insurance analysis.
While exploring the reasons behind this, it
became apparent that these employees, in essence, were
uniquely able to
support a balanced, healthy immune system.
After several months of exploration
and research, Diamond V came to the realization that these employees were

created during Diamond V’s unique
proprietary manufacturing process.”
