The Incredible Health Benefits of Chia Seeds
Every supplement we sell at The Dog House has been carefully chosen to ensure optimal health for your dog, which is why we've included private label chia seeds to our selection of natural health products. They are filled with an amazing amount of beneficial vitamins and proteins, and are a safe, easy way to boost your dog's energy, endurance, and overall health.
Chia seeds have some incredible effects on health, both for humans and animals. Though they appear small and unassuming, these seeds contain large quantities of protein, five times the calcium of milk, boron (a trace mineral that aids in the absorption of calcium into the bones), Omega oils 3 and 6, and can help regulate blood sugar levels and aid in maintaining a healthy weight. The seeds of chia plants can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure, and reduce risk of heart disease.
What's more, there are no known allergies to chia seeds, and seeds can easily be stored for long periods of time without becoming rancid, making them favorable over even the amazing flax seed. These seeds have no discernible odor and almost no taste, which means they can be added to your dog's meals without altering the carefully balanced flavors that he's come to love so much.
The variety of ways chia seeds can be used is also quite impressive, not to mention convenient. Seeds can be ground, eaten raw, or added to water, which will cause the seeds to produce a thick mucilage, known as chia seed gel. This gel helps clean out intestines and slows digestion, allowing your dog's body to absorb more of the incredible nutrients that chia seeds provide.
This is no fleeting trend or media-touted "super-food" – the fantastic effects of chia seeds are real, and your dog can benefit by eating them everyday.
