Our Joint Support Chicken and Sweet Potato treats support healthy mobility, comfort and activity levels and lessen morning stiffness. The following is the list of ingredients and descriptions of each.
Glucosamine Sulfate (Shellfish)
Cartilage, which is the tissue that cushions joints, has a natural compound in it called glucosamine. Glucosamine sulfate, sourced from shellfish, is widely used to support joint health. Glucosamine has been used by humans for years to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
You might be familiar with turmeric because it is used in many curry powders, but this common spice is also known for its use in treating many ailments. Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family and contains the chemical curcumin. As an antioxidant, curcumin helps to maintain healthy pain states in the body. Turmeric has been used in Asian medicine for many years to treat a variety of illnesses, mainly because of its antioxidant effects.
Cassava is a starch tuber that is grated to make flour. It’s often used as a substitute for wheat flour and gluten-free foods. Cassava flour is a low-calorie ingredient and is also low in fat and sugar, but is rich in vitamin C, making it a healthful inactive ingredient in our treats.
An ingredient that will make your dog crave our treats is chicken paste. While it might not sound particularly tasty to humans, it’s the ingredient that adds tons of flavor but has the added benefit of protein that all dogs require.
Rich in fiber, protein and MCTs, coconut flour is a gluten-free ingredient that can help promote stable blood sugar, heart health and proper digestion. While many coconut products are high in saturated fats (the bad fat), when coconut flour is processed, this saturated fat is removed. Also, this flour contains more fiber and protein than wheat flour.
Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious. They contain fiber, vitamins and minerals, but they’re really known for their vitamin A content, which is known for benefiting the immune system and eyesight. When dogs are deficient in vitamin A, their skin and coat will not look healthy, but they can also suffer from night blindness if deficient enough.
This chemical additive is widely used as a preservative in food. It is odorless and imparts no taste to food – it’s simply used, in extremely small quantities, as a preservative.
