As dog parents, we're always on the lookout for ways to enhance our furry friends' well-being, and the latest buzz in the canine health world is all about marine microalgae. These tiny, but mighty, aquatic plants are proving to be a powerhouse of nutrients for our canine companions.
The Digestible Delight: Sea Algae
Sea algae, a category that includes marine microalgae, has a digestion-friendly profile, making it easier for our dogs to absorb compared to their land-based counterparts. Among these, kelp emerges as a superstar, packed with calcium and iron. These elements are crucial for addressing anemia, calcium-related issues, muscle tremors, blood clotting problems, and weakened bones.
Omega-3 Goodness: Nourishing from Within
One of the standout features of sea algae is their rich omega-3 fatty acid content. These fatty acids play a pivotal role in supporting internal organs, fortifying the nervous system, and combating inflammation. Moreover, sea algae contain sodium alginate, a compound that acts as a heavy metal detoxifier, facilitating the removal of these potentially harmful elements from your dog's body.
Immune Boosting Marvel: Fucoidans in Action
Sea algae's positive impact extends to the immune system, thanks to fucoidans. These compounds stimulate the immune system, showcasing anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic (anti blood clots), antibacterial, and anticancer effects.
Algae, the Brain's Best Friend
Recent research has unveiled that marine microalgae supports brain function, especially in senior dogs. Marine microalgae is also a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to traditional fish oil. This source of omega-3 fatty acids not only promotes brain health but also ensures a supply of other essential nutrients vital for the overall well-being of our senior pets.
A Clean, Green Source: Fermented Algae
Algae cultivated through fermentation offers an array of benefits. It serves as a rich, sustainable source of omega-3 fatty acids, void of potential contaminants found in fish-based sources. The quality of this algae provides flexibility in developing pet food products, like Brutus Bone Broth’s Vegetable Broth.
Supporting the Canine Mind: Proven Results
In recent tests, dogs fed a diet with marine micro-algae outperformed their counterparts on a standard diet. The dogs who ate a diet with marine micro-alrage showed enhanced learning, improved visual processing involving the retina and cerebral cortex, and heightened long-term memory.
