Power Duo Gummi Mix - Pink Pitaya and Pea Spirulina
Spirulina is a cyanobacterium, more commonly known as a type of blue-green algae. It is a nutrition powerhouse and is extremely high in protein, as well as copper, iron and B vitamins. Because it contains no cellulose, it is easily digested by dogs and highly bioavailable.
Spirulina is renowned for its high antioxidant composition, which mainly comes from the active compound phycocyanin. Studies have shown phycocyanin to possess anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and gut health supporting properties in animals. Other studies have shown promising therapeutic results in animals with diabetes. Significantly for our pets who suffer from allergies, spirulina has shown in clinical trials that it can assist in managing the impact of seasonal allergens, due to its ability to inhibit the release of histamines.
Dragonfruit, Pitaya, strawberry pear or “Honolulu Queen,” this cactus fruit native to Central America and Mexico is almost as nutritious as it is vibrantly hot pink.
This brilliant pink colour comes from carotenoids, which are plant pigments that give red, orange and yellow plants their colours. Dragonfruit is rich in beta-carotene and lycopene, both of which function as antioxidants in the body. Beta-carotene is also converted to vitamin A in both human and dogs (but not cats). The antioxidant activity of carotenoids like beta-carotene and lycopene protect the body from oxidative stress, which in turn protects from disease. Dragonfruit gets additional free radical fighting qualities from the antioxidants betacyanin and betaxanthin.
It is also a source of fibre for digestive health, as well oligosaccharides. Oligosaccharides are a type of prebiotic, which are the food source for the good bacteria in the digestive system. The oligosaccharides in dragonfruit have been linked to increases in the populations of bifidobacteria and lactobacillus strains of good gut bacteria.
The humble beetroot is gaining traction in the nutrition world for its positive health impacts. A super low calorie vegetable, beetroot is rich in vitamin C, folate and magnesium, while also providing a decent amount of both soluble and insoluble fibre. Fibre is widely linked to improvements in digestive and heart health, and may play a role in preventing diabetes and cancer.
Beetroot also offers antioxidant properties, which come in the form of betalains. Betalains are plant pigments that give beetroot its vibrant colours, and consist of betacyanins (red and purple) and betaxanthins (yellow and orange). Antioxidants protect the body from oxidative stress and disease, and possess anti-inflammatory qualities. Beetroot has shown promising results in a number of clinical studies for its cancer fighting potential.
With ancient roots in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine, this brilliant blue flower native to South Asia is purported to have some pretty incredible medicinal properties and health benefits.
Also known as Clitoria ternatea due to the flower’s umm.. appearance, Butterfly Pea powder gets its colour from the presents of anthocyanins, which are a type of phenolic pigment. Anthocyanins offer antioxidant, fee-radical scavenging properties, and have been studied for their anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-obesity effects.
In traditional Indian medicine Butterfly Pea is used as a brain tonic to promote cognitive improvements and memory, and clinical studies have supported this use, finding antidepressant and anti-stress activity.
