Wild-caught in the Atlantic Ocean, our whole sardines are one of the most concentrated sources of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA as well as Coenzyme Q10, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. All are critical for healthy heart and brain functioning. And since sardines have a short lifespan, they don’t live long enough to accumulate toxins and heavy metals, like mercury, the way other fish do.
Why Sardines Reign Supreme
Healthy Hearts Omega-3s improve heart function, reducing heart rate, blood pressure and inflammation. Excellent source of vitamin B12 which improves overall cardiovascular health.
Better Brains DHA supports cognitive health especially in developing and aging brains, important for growing kittens and puppies as well as senior cats and dogs.
Alleviates Allergies Fatty acids help prevent atopy (allergies to inhaled substances such as pollens and molds) from developing in young animals. Superior anti-inflammatory properties also helps reduce chronic redness and inflamed skin from existing allergies.
Silky Skin Dietary deficiency of omega-3s can cause dry, flaky skin. Sardines’ high levels of EPA reduces itchiness and improves coat and skin health.
Joint and Bone Booster Excellent for joint health, extremely beneficial for older cats and dogs or those suffering from osteoarthritis. Helps to ease joint stiffness, increase activity levels especially with jumping or climbing stairs. Great source of Vitamin D for bone building and strengthening.
Kidney Health Research shows omega-3 fats slows the decline of kidney function in cats and dogs with kidney disease and increased survival times for cats with kidney disease.
And yes, they are stinky, but the benefits truly outweigh the stink factor.
