Benefits of organic moringa for dogs
Improves oral health
In addition to being a natural antibacterial agent, Moringa is one of the best natural sources of calcium, with an amount 17 times higher than milk. This essential mineral not only helps to develop the bones, teeth and joints, it also plays a role in the transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction and blood clotting. Did you know that a dog's calcium needs are 3 times greater than that of humans?
Helps keep joints healthy
Rich in Omega-3, our Moringa treats help reduce joint inflammation by eliminating inflammatory enzymes and strengthen ligaments by acting on the very structure of collagen. Since dogs cannot produce these fatty acids on their own, they must be obtained through food. Omega-3s are a must to support an active lifestyle and prevent joint problems in your dog.
Helps your dog maintain a strong immune system
With its high protein and amino acid content, Moringa strengthens your dog’s immunity so it can better defend itself against viruses and bacteria. The immune system’s role is to differentiate what belongs in the body from foreign bodies that must be eliminated. To prevent our faithful companions from having health problems, it is essential to strengthen its protective shield.
Helps keep you dog's skin and coat healthy
Moringa fatty acids nourish and protect your dog's skin while providing a shiny, healthy coat. The Moringa leaf's many antioxidants slow down the aging process of cells, its high vitamin C content promotes natural collagen production, and its antimicrobial properties reduce inflammation and prevent rashes.
Helps prevent cancer
Its high concentration of antioxidants fights free radicals which damage the metabolism and prevent premature aging of the cells. Researchers have shown that Moringa leaf has chemo-preventive properties, that is, it inhibits the proliferation of cancer cells.
Regulates blood sugar
Moringa regulates and significantly reduces blood sugar levels, including in diabetic animals. Moringa also increases the activity of three detoxifying enzymes that fight free radicals, which are created by high blood sugar levels.
Rich in magnesium and amino acids, Moringa improves mood, calms stress and anxiety, and reduces fatigue. Magnesium also has the benefit of regulating blood pressure. Researchers have shown that a magnesium deficiency can lead to depression in dogs. Moringa doesn't just keep the body healthy, it positively influences your loyal friend’s well-being!
