You might have heard of Vitamin E for yourself but did you know that pets can also benefit hugely from Vitamin E. Lets dive into what Vitamin E is and how it can help your pets overall health and lifestyle
What are Free Radicals?
Free Radicals can be very good in one hand but very bad in the other hand. Free Radicals are a group of atoms that contain oxygen plus electrons that can not only damage the cell membranes but can also damage the bodies protein and DNA. The good hand is that Free Radicals actually help the body produce energy however if your pet is ill or is run down with an injury than the free radicals will turn and steal the electrons from the nearby molecules which in turn will cause cellular damage.
Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your pets diet, put simply and can be either water-soluble or fat-soluble. Water-soluble being the fluid inside and outside the cells and fat-soluble being the ones that act mainly in the cell membranes. Along with Vitamin E is also recommend to include Vitamin C and Flavonoids (Plant Antioxidants) to your pets diet.
Where can Vitamin E be found?
Vitamin E can be found in food groups such as:
Green Leafy Vegetables
Hemp Seed Oil
You can also find Vitamin E in a range of our pet food products and supplements such as our Hemp Seed Oil for Dogs.
Just like anything, too much of one thing can cause a negative reaction which can lead to blood clotting. This is why we recommend seeking your vets approval and reading our suggested serving size on all our pet foods and supplements.
