Green Lipped Mussel
The mussels harvested along the coast of New Zealand benefit from a constantly renewed supply of marine nutrients brought by the ocean current.
Green-lipped mussels are known to contain several nutrients that may be beneficial in supporting dogs with joint issues including chondroitin, glutamine, vitamins C and E and antioxidant micronutrients such as zinc, copper and selenium. They're also a source of omega-3 fatty acids, some of which, such as eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA), is not found in fish oils. Studies show GLM is great for your dogs joints.
Organic Hemp Seed Powder
Hemp seeds contain an impressive array of vitamins and minerals and are especially rich in, vitamin E, magnesium and potassium. They are also a good source of iron, zinc, and B vitamins, including niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, vitamin B-6, folate and a great balance of omega 3:6
Black and Blue
Dark-coloured berries is where it’s at for dogs. They’re incredibly nutritious, packed full of some harder to find vitamins C and K and minerals like manganese. They have also a low GL (glycaemic load), particularly blackberries, meaning they don’t elevate blood sugars like other fruits, which is a good thing for dogs
Loaded with vitamin C, they are also an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fibre. Blackberries are also high in vitamins A, E and K, B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12), as well as minerals such as copper, manganese, magnesium and potassium, and other nutrients such as pantothenic acid and folic acid. More than that dark coloured berries are valued for their antioxidant capabilities, as they contain numerous phytochemicals such as lutein, zeaxanthin, anthocyanins, catechins, ellagic acid, tannins, gallic acid, quercetin, cyanidins, kaempferol and salicylic acid.
Such compounds may help scavenge free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and chronic diseases. Anthocyanins, which are responsible for the fruit’s colour, were suggested to help protect against aging, inflammation, cancer and other neurological diseases.
Rich in B vitamins such as folate, vitamin C and vitamin E which are important antioxidants needed to help support the immune system, but it’s probably most well-known as being a very good source of vitamin K, which is needed to help wounds heal properly.
As for minerals, kale contains potassium, which supports effective heart function; calcium, for strong bones and teeth. Magnesium, for good hormone health, and selenium, which supports the immune system.
Kale, like other leafy greens, is very high in antioxidants. These include beta-carotene and vitamin C, as well as various flavonoids and polyphenols. It also includes the flavonoids quercetin and kaempferol. These substances have been studied thoroughly. They have powerful heart-protective, blood pressure-lowering, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-cancer effects.
A good source of fibre and protein, and contains iron, potassium, calcium, selenium and magnesium as well as the vitamins A, C, E, K and a good array of B vitamins including folic acid.
Broccoli is rich in glucosinolates, which are broken down into biologically active compounds that have anticancer properties. These compounds protect cells from DNA damage, make carcinogens inactive, induce cell death in tumours, prevent tumour blood vessels from forming, and provide anti-inflammatory effects.
This marine plant is high in minerals and contains vitamins A, B, E, D and K. It also contains sodium alginate (algin), which helps remove heavy metals from the dogs system. It is also a good source of iodine that helps promote thyroid function and can benefit animals who suffer from hypothyroidism. Seaweed is ideal for balancing glandular functioning in dogs. Iodine is essential for stimulating the thyroid gland. Seaweed can help maintain a shiny and healthy skin and coat in dogs. Moreover, they contain antioxidants that land plants do not, including fucoxanthin and fucoidans which studies studs show are helpful in reducing cancer and they are thought to contain anti-tumour properties.
