Anco Nutrients Cold Pressed Chia Seed Oil with Herbs helps active dogs with strength and endurance. Ideal for working / sporting dogs or for dogs who undertake agility training.
Packing a powerful nutritional punch despite their tiny size, Chia Seeds truly deserve their ‘superfood’ status. Native to Central America, Chia was cultivated by the Mayans for its ability to increase stamina and energy – Chia is the ancient Mayan word for ‘strength’. Sourced sustainably, Anco Cold Pressed Chia Seed Oil is 100% natural and contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Naturally nutrient rich, this Hypoallergenic oil is an excellent source of B vitamins, Calcium, Iron, Zinc & Magnesium as well as high levels of polyphenols and carotenoids (natural antioxidants).
Chia is the richest natural source of plant derived Omega-3 oils known as ALAs. Dogs must obtain these through their diet, which is why they are deemed ‘essential’. By cold pressing the Chia Seed rather than heat extracting, the important Omega fatty acids are not broken down and their qualities affected. These essential fatty acids are important to your dog as they help strengthen the immune system; maintain healthy heart, joints, skin and coat; assist normal brain and eye development and provide anti-inflammatory benefits. In addition, Chia has been shown to slow the conversion of carbohydrates to sugars and therefore assists in stabilising blood sugar levels, contributing to naturally high levels of energy and endurance. In turn, stable blood sugars support normal insulin function whilst slowing down digestion to enable the proper absorption of nutrients-helping dogs to feel satiated for longer. With no taste or scent for even the fussiest of dogs, Chia oil has 3 x the amount of Omega-3 as Salmon, so is ideal for dogs who can’t tolerate fish oil.
The herbal mix in the oil has added health benefits:-
Peppermint Leaves support the digestive system. Cumin Seeds are a rich source of antioxidants, linked to a reduction in free radicals. Fenugreek supports the reduction of inflammation inside the body and improves digestion. Liquorice Root helps to maintain a healthy weight and is an immune system booster. Turmeric is a natural anti inflammatory and aids digestion. Fennel is high in natural antioxidants and supports the respiratory and digestive system. Chamomile Blossom is soothing and calming, boosts the immune system and supports normal liver function.
