The Health Benefits of Hemp for our furry friends!

Hemp protein powder and hemp seed oil are not only super-foods for people, but can also do wonders for your pet (including dogs, birds and horses). Hemp is filled with important and crucial nutrition including  polyunsaturated good fats [with naturally occurring   ideal 1:3 ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty  acids (EFAs)], protein, vitamins (including vitamin   B1, B3, B6, B12, C, D, E), antioxidants, magnesium,potassium, calcium, fiber, iron, enzymes, and more  – making it an excellent addition to your pet’s meal plan.

The benefits of hemp for your pet’s health include:

  • strengthens the immune system
  • supports a healthy weight
  • increases energy
  • improves condition of skin and fur

Unlike many other foods, hemp is easily digestible by the body and shown to aid the system in any recovery  work it needs to do, as well as for the maintenance  of good health.

While the movement towards incorporating hemp into a companion animal’s diet is still in its infancy,  veterinarians are also slowly starting to discover the value of this miracle plant.

It is important to note that dogs predominantly  carnivorous and so are built to eat meat. That’s why  hemp oil and hemp protein powder products need to  be added as a supplement to the diet, not as a replacement.
