Although the use of hemp in animal feed is recent, there are already many positive effects. Indeed, incorporating it into their daily lives is said to make our faithful companions happier, stronger, and calmer.
Known to improve vitality, hemp is a true superfood, as well as being rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. It helps maintain a healthy metabolism, ideal weight, can prevent certain ailments such as urinary tract infections, and keeps the immune system strong and resistant.
RICH IN FATTY ACIDS
Because of its high essential fatty acids content which is beneficial to your dog’s brain function and overall health, hemp products promote good digestion, making it easier for your pet to absorb all the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
A GOOD SOURCE OF OMEGA-3 AND OMEGA-6
Hemp oil is the only natural food source that contains a perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6, which is an exceptional benefit, perfect for boosting the immune system. As your dog does not naturally generate these essential fatty acids, they must be added to their diet. Hemp oil and seed products are known to help with joint, heart, and eye health. And, as if this wasn’t enough, they can also reduce symptoms of allergies, arthritis, and inflammation.
AN ACTIVE BRAIN
Of course, in our eyes, our pet is always the coolest and smartest. With their cute little tricks and behaviours, they always seem brighter than the rest. Well, you’ll be happy to know that the oil in hemp products can increase blood circulation and stimulate your dog’s cognitive process. It’s enough to make Fido a real Einstein… or at least make Fido think twice before eating your best pair of shoes!
A HEALTHY HEART
Just like humans, animals are not immune to heart disease. It is therefore essential to take the necessary precautions to keep your pet healthy. By adding hemp-based foods into your pet’s diet, you can help keep your pet’s heart healthy. Studies show that certain amino acids found in hemp can reduce levels of C-reactive proteins, which are linked to heart problems. Because nothing is more important than the heart of your “love”, this benefit alone is a good reason to include hemp in their diet.
