We use a variety of vegetables to ensure that your pet is getting the vitamins he needs. Depending on the season will depend on what is readily available for us to use. The mix of the vegetables that we use may contain the following carrots, romaine lettuce, spinach, broccoli, and celery. The fruits we use are apples and pears.
Carrots are a great source of beta-carotene, a powerful immune boosting, antioxidant. High in vitamin A, B complex, C, D ,E, and K and many minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, and magnesium. Carrots contain a high-soluble fibre, which depresses that blood cholesterol and promotes regularity.
Romaine lettuce is a great source of the B vitamin folate, high source of vitamin A as well as zinc, vitamins C & D.
Spinach is also an antioxidant. It contains numerous vitamins such as vitamin A, B6, & C; mineral such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, sulfur, thiamine and beta carotene. It also has a higher percentage of protein than most vegetables. Spinach is also a rich source of fibre and folic acid. The nutrients in spinach can also help with conditions in which inflammation is an issue such as arthritis.
Broccoli is abundant in beta-carotene, Vitamin C, lutein and several minerals. Broccoli is rich in fibre and helps boost the immune system by being full of antioxidants.
Celery is a traditional Vietnamese remedy for high blood pressure. The compounds in celery reduce blood pressure in animals. Celery also has a mild diuretic effect. This fibre rich vegetable contains eight different anti-cancer compounds.
Apples are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre. Vitamins A & C, calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium, and potassium. We use everything but the core in our food because most of the fibre and vitamins are just under the apple skin. The fruit sugar found in apples is a great source of energy.
Pears are a natural, quick source of energy due largely to high amounts of fructose, glucose and carbohydrates. Pears contain vitamin C, potassium and lots of dietary fibre. Potassium is important electrolyte needed for proper heart, nerve and muscle function. Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant for normal metabolism and tissue repair, and helps prevent free radical.As well, vitamin C promotes healing of cuts and bruises and helps guard against a number of infectious diseases.
The supplements that we add to the vegetable and fruit mix are parsley, and garlic.
Parsley is an excellent source of vitamin A and several B vitamins, calcium, iron and more vitamin C than an orange. It is also believed to aid in general digestive problems as well. Vitamin C is a very important vitamin as we all know. It is an anti-stress vitamin, and can not be overdosed on. Any excess amount will come out in the urine or feces.
Garlic is well known to strengthen the immune system. It is also an anticarcinogen in both the prevention and treatment of cancer. It is unknown specifically how garlic protects and/ or fights cancer but is thought to block formation of cancer causing compounds. Which would then stop their ability to form tumors or even inhibit the growth of tumors.
