These all-natural dog treats are made with pumpkin and blueberries. Rich in antioxidants and beta-carotene, these scrumptious treats will get tails wagging for sure!
Pumpkin is very high in carotenoids. They are what give pumpkins their bright orange color. Carotenoids have been shown to neutralize free radicals-molecules that can attack cell membranes and leave the cells vulnerable to damage.
Pumpkins are also high in lutein and zeaxanthin, which help minimize free radicals in the lens of the eye. As a result they may help prevent the formation of cataracts and reduce the risk of macular degeneration which usually results in blindness. Pumpkins also contain several beneficial nutrients such as zinc, iron and fiber. Zinc deficiency may be related to osteoporosis of the hip and spine in older dogs. Iron stimulates red blood cell growth. Fiber is important for bowel health.
Blueberries are full of anthocyanin, another powerful antioxidant.
Blueberry extract, high in compounds called anthocyanosides, has been found in clinical studies to slow down vision loss, heart disease and even cancer. They have also been shown to improve memory loss.
