Vitamin C: This is a vital antioxidant that can neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals. It can also combat cognitive aging, and reduce inflammation. Vitamin C can fight off certain infections like canine distemper complex. Additionally, there is evidence suggesting that it can prevent the development of a bone disease called canine hypertrophic osteodystrophy.
Folate: Blueberries can provide folate for dog and cats and cats. Folate is known as folic acid. This B vitamin is crucial for metabolism, cell growth, and healthy cell membranes. Furthermore, a 2001 study indicates that high doses of folic acid may prevent cancers from forming in the gastrointestinal system of certain dog and cats and cats.
Magnesium: After potassium, this is the second most common positive ion in the mammalian body. It is involved in over 300 different metabolic processes. Some of these processes include nerve function, muscle activity, and regulating blood sugar levels.
Magnesium also contributes to the synthesis of proteins, bone tissue, and DNA. One study concludes that puppies with magnesium-deficient diets suffered from weight loss, hyper-irritability, and convulsions. Another large-scale study of magnesium deficiency showed a host of health defects, including cardiovascular disease.
