It is now widely recognized that modern grain-based diets are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly the long chain EPA and DHA. It is also now known that this deficiency can result in a wide variety of health maladies. Wild animals could occasionally prey on cold water fish to gain essential fatty acids, but this is not practical for pets. Omega-3 Spectrum Pet™ allows for pets to get those omega-3 fatty acids in a convenient form.
Flaxseeds are an alternative source of dry and more pleasant tasting omega-3's, but some pets may not be able to effectively convert the ALA in flaxseeds into the metabolically important longer chain EPA and DHA. Because flaxseeds contain powerful antioxidants to protect their omega-3's, combining them with the less stable EPA and DHA through a special seed selection and milling process, can create a solution in terms of taste, form (dry), and stability against oxidation.
Stability of EPA/DHA within Omega-3 Spectrum Pet™
If you are seeking a pleasant tasting and convenient dry form of all the important omega-3's, you will be pleased with Omega-3 Spectrum Pet™ dog and cat supplements in dry powder form.
Features and Benefits
Uses a proprietary and patented method of seed, algae, and fish oil selection and milling to create a unique stable dry form of ALA, EPA, and DHA omega-3's
Molecular barrier is created between flaxseed antioxidants and marine and algal oils which restricts oxidation of EPA and DHA bonds.
Pleasant and clear flavor and aroma without adulteration
Nutritional value even survives reasonable cooking
Rich in dietary fiber
Rich source of lignans and other antioxidants (phenolic acids, phytic acids, flavonoids, and tocopherols) (Antioxidants = 8,000 TE/100g)
