TURMERIC AND BLACK PEPPER
Of turmeric’s many benefits, its role as a powerful antioxidant may be the most promising. Antioxidants are important because they can help fight dangerous “free radicals” –often linked to heart disease, cancer, vision loss, inflammation through arthritis or injury, infections through skin allergies and other chronic health conditions.
· Carob is made from the bean pods of the carob tree; is 100% natural and 100% healthy for dogs and gives them great health benefits. Carob is high in vitamin B2, calcium, magnesium, and iron. Carob also contains vitamin B1, niacin and vitamin A. Most fruit and veg we have in our daily diets are nutritious, and carob is no exception!
· Carob is also a great source of fibre and pectin, helping to eliminate toxins. This super food improves digestion, lowers cholesterol, and can be used to treat diarrhoea. It also allows for better absorption of calcium.
Dogs’ bodies unlike humans, can naturally produce Vitamin C. However, there are times in their lives when this ability is greatly reduced and would benefit from a Vit C boost. Stress is the best-known cause of vitamin C depletion in dogs. Physical stress comes in many forms: gestation, lactation, growth, vaccinations, injuries, or illness. Emotional stress, whether caused by relocation, weaning, or demanding training, can also deplete this reserve. My treats have a very small amount of Vitamin C in them and is mainly used as a natural way of preservation, rather than medicinal. As a result, any dog under stress will benefit from my treats and will be a helpful supplement to any dogs’ diet.
Beetroot offer nutritional benefits to humans and dogs alike. This makes a treat of a beetroot snack suitable as part of a dog’s balanced diet. They’re low on calories, but jam-packed with essential nutrients. Notable nutrients include vitamin C (a natural antioxidant), folate (vitamin B9), iron (note that many senior dogs suffer from iron deficiency), potassium, magnesium, manganese, calcium, and dietary fibre. These micronutrients can work wonders for your dog’s immune system and digestion, and they also give your dog a healthy coat and skin. It’s common for veterinarians to suggest adding small amounts of beetroot to the diet of a dog who is struggling with fur loss, stomach issues, or unhealthy skin.
Peanuts are a powerhouse food that contain essential nutrients, such as vitamin B6, vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium and good, healthy fats!
As with all treats, please feed in moderation so that they get full the benefit of these healthy elements such as Improving Dog Skin and Coat, Lower High Cholesterol and make them Stronger and more Energetic
