Support a dog’s cardiovascular system?
Goodness Gravy does several ways!
With so many dogs at risk of developing heart disease as they age, it makes sense to consider how nutrition may play a role in keeping a dog’s cardiovascular system as healthy and functioning during the aging process. There are several ingredients in Goodness Gravy that help support good cardiovascular function.
Omega-3 fatty acids have a number of potential benefits including help with heart disease. Omega-3 reduces inflammation and can help protect against abnormal heart rhythms. Our Omega-3’s are polyunsaturated fats found in fish, the preferred source of Omega-3. Flaxseed/flaxseed oil also is high in omega-3 fatty acids but is ineffective for providing omega-3 fatty acids and should be avoided. We don’t use flaxseed oil in our product.
Antioxidant supplements are enzymes, minerals and vitamins that play an important role in fighting free radicals in a dog’s system. Free radicals are atoms of molecules that cause the body to age. Antioxidants slow the aging process and help fight a variety of medical disorders associated with aging including cardiovascular disease. The most common and efficient antioxidants are Vitamin A, C and E, Beta-Carotene and Selenium. All of these supplements are present in Goodness Gravy.
Amino acids are essential to life. Amino Acids act as the building blocks for proteins and are critical to the proper functioning of the body. One important amino acid is Taurine which is found in heart wall muscles, in the retina and brain. A deficiency of Taurine can lead to heart disease.
