Did you know that flax is just as beneficial for your pet?
I have had so many people tell me they add ground flax to their pets' food + their results are amazing!
They say their pet's coat is shinier and they notice a difference in their pet's overall health as well.
Since flax seed is so great for humans, it is not surprising that flaxseed's nutrients + Omega 3 for pets are so beneficial!
If your pet lacks Omega 3 essential fatty acids, they may suffer from:
What are benefits of Flaxseed's Lignans + Omega 3 for pets?
Some ways Flax may help improve animal's health:
Veterinarians agree that pets that don't have enough Omega 3 essential fatty acids will eventually have health problems including dry, itchy skin and dull or shedding coat.
Animals have much the same nutritional requirements as we do, especially needing essential fatty acids.
Essential fatty acids are critical for basic cellular healing and maintenance; they must be eaten in the diet just like minerals + vitamins. Unfortunately, our pets are not getting these critical nutrients.
Our pets have also had their pet food stripped of nutrients + just like much of our food, + the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 for pets is WAY out of balance.
Many commercial pet foods are very deficient in Omega 3 essential fatty acids. For example, pet food may contain a lot of corn, which is very high in Omega 6; low fat pet food may contain very little Omega 3.
Pet food manufacturers don't want to make food that quickly becomes rancid; adding Omega 3 oils to pet food can cause it to spoil + become rancid very quickly!
Leaving flax seed Omega 3 oils out of pet food is an easy solution, but this puts our pets in an unhealthy position!
If your pet doesn't like the food, it could potentially be because the pet food may be rancid, over-processed (heat destroys the fragile Omega 3 oils) or contain irritating chemicals, dyes, antibiotics or preservatives.
Find quality pet food and then add flax to your pet food. Flax that is added to pet food should be Cold Milled Ground Flax.
Good nutrition is just as important for pets as it is for humans + can help prevent and heal diseases.
Flax seed has been shown to have many important benefits including: anticancer, antiviral, antibacterial + antifungal properties.
Flaxseed can help prevent + treat inflammation, allergies, immune problems, cancers, etc. Many of the benefits of flaxseed are due to it's high content of omega-3 fatty acids + lignans.
Like so many pet owners who have seen health improvements in their pets, your pet can also experience the benefits from the incredible nutrients in flaxseed!
Flax seed can help your pet in many ways, including:
True Cold Milled Flax seed is the richest plant source of Omega 3 fatty acids that are critical to promote healthy skin and a shiny coat for your pet.
It is common for dog, horse and sheep breeders to add flaxseed to their animal's feed because it helps their animal's skin and gives them shinier coats.
Recent research validates this and shows that Omega 3 fatty acids are deposited intact on the animal's coat surface, which is not only healthy for the animal, but also makes for shinier coats.
Flax seed is also an exceptional source of antioxidant lignans that supports an active immune system. Lignans are also beneficial for treating inflammation, arthritic pain and chronic inflammatory disorders.
Ground flax seed is a good source of highly digestible protein + essential amino acids, which also help to keep pets strong + healthy.
Ground flax seed has both soluble + insoluble fiber; these are important to help prevent constipation as well as protect the pet's digestive system.
Flax is also a good source of vitamins: Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6 and minerals: Potassium, Calcium + Phosphorus.
Because of the vast benefits, many veterinarians suggest adding ground flaxseed to your pet's food.
