Description and benefits of the ingredients:

Pollok Filets: This is a unique protein source for dogs.  This is an excellent option for dogs with extreme food allergies or for breed specific applications.  Dogs like akitas or huskies who originate where fish are a major protein source do very well and thoroughly enjoy this fish.  The filets of Pollok is the predominate source for our Fish & Produce Formulation.  White fish is rich in a number of B vitamins such as niacin (B3), which is needed to promote healthy cells and to help eliminate toxins from the body and pyridoxine (B6), which keeps the skin, nervous system and red blood cells healthy.  White fish is also rich in several essential minerals such as iron, phosphorus, selenium, and iodine. 

 Sardines: "Ounce for ounce, provide more calcium and phosphorus than milk, more protein than steak, more potassium than bananas, and more iron than cooked spinach."[i] Probably the greatest nutritional value of sardines resides in their high concentration of omega-3-fatty acids. Omega-3 has been shown to reduce triglyceride levels and play a significant role in preventing dangerous heart abnormalities.

Carrots:  Carrots are good source of Thiamine, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate and Manganese, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium.  Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds, and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotene's. Carrots' antioxidant compounds help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer and also promote good vision, especially night vision.

Apples:  Apples are a great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Dietary Fiber.  Apples have been shown to help reduce blood cholesterol, improve bowel function, reduce risk of stroke, promote healthy lung functions due to the fiber and phytonutrients present in the apples.

Green Beans: Green Beans are an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C.  These are both important for maintaining optimum health, and are also valuable antioxidants. Green beans offer additional antioxidants in the forms of manganese and a variety of cartenoids and flavonoids. All of these in tandem make green beans an antioxidant powerhouse, which is crucial in preventing various cancers and heart diseases. Antioxidants perform this function by seeking out and neutralizing free radicals that damage cells. These damaged cells, in turn, damage other cells in their vicinity, creating a chain reaction that negatively affects your health.

 

Beyond their antioxidant benefits, the high levels of calcium, vitamin K, magnesium, phosphorous and silicon all support stronger, healthier bones. Evidence is also beginning to emerge showing that green beans has anti-inflammation benefits, and may also prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes with the ability to aid in the process of sugar in the body and stabilize insulin levels. And, to boot, green beans pack in a bunch of dietary fiber into a few calories, leaving your digestive track clean and healthy.

Broccoli:  A very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, C, K, B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese.  Also a good source of added protein, Vitamin E, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, and Phosphorous and Selenium. This has been shown to fend off cancer, osteoporosis, birth defects, and heart disease. It can also boost your immunity.

Acorn Squash:  Acorn Squash is a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Folate and Magnesium, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Thiamine, Potassium and Manganese.  Acorn squash have been found to have anti-cancer type effects. Specifically the ability to prevent cell mutations (cancer-like changes).

Papaya: Papaya contains Vitamin C, Calcium, Vitamin A, Phosphorus and Potassium. As well as containing vitamin E and K.  We include the papaya seeds which have some significant health benefits; they include protection against E. coli, Salmonella and Staph infections and certain kidney diseases. Papaya seeds extract are also known to get rid of intestinal parasites and they also help in detoxifying the liver.  Papaya contains enzyme health benefits which come from papain and chymonpapain, the two very important enzymes of the fruit. These enzymes aid in the digestion of protein in the body. Out of the two, papain is the most abundant and most active. The antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene also aid to reducing any inflammatory symptoms.[ii]

Honey: Raw honey boosts immunity and the digestive system because it has 27 minerals, 22 amino acids and about 500 live enzymes in one table spoon. Unlike processed and refined sugar, honey is easily digestible.  Honey also helps to metabolize fatty acid.

Beets:  Beets are a good source of Vitamin C, Iron and Magnesium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Folate, Potassium and Manganese. Beets are of great therapeutic value. They have properties to clean the kidneys and gall bladder.

Parsley: Parsley is a good source of Protein, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.  Parsley's volatile oils-particularly myristicin-have been shown to inhibit tumor formation in animal studies, and particularly, tumor formation in the lungs.  Folic acid is also a critical nutrient for proper cell division and is therefore vitally important for cancer-prevention in two areas of the body that contain rapidly dividing cells.

Blueberries: This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Manganese.  Blueberries are not only a powerful antioxidant but also have been proved to preserve vision.

Cranberries: Have several health benefits to maintain urinary tract health they contain a compound that prevents microorganisms from adhering to cells of the urinary tract. They have what researchers call "anti-adhesion" properties that can help reduce the risk of urinary tract infections.  The same compound aids in the Dental Health using the same "anti-adhesion" property prevents bacteria from forming in the mouth. They might reduce the formation of harmful plaque that leads to gum disease.  Cranberries aid in Heart Health by reducing bad (LDL) cholesterol levels and raise levels of good (HDL) cholesterol in the blood.  They contain Anti Cancer Antioxidants that have been found to inhibit the formation of cancer cells.  As well as anti-ulcer benefits from the tannins found in cranberries this can prevent the adhesion of ulcer causing bacteria in the stomach.

Cod Liver Oil: This food is very low in Sodium. It is also a very good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin D.  It also provides your dog with omega-3 fatty acids. These are essential for the healthy function of the brain, the heart, the joints, the digestive system and many other systems of the body. Another benefit of cod liver oil is related to its vitamin E content, which helps the body process the fatty acids, is an essential antioxidant and promotes the health of the skin and coat.

Calcium Carbonate:  Calcium Carbonate is the true complete food grade form of solid calcium.  The AAFCO requires that any dog or cat food be equal in calcium and phosphorus.  Chicken bone is not a naturally a one to one ratio.  This is why we add calcium carbonate to increase the calcium ratios in the food.
