The word ‘superfood’ has become a bit of a buzz word in recent times. More so than ever before, dog owners want to feed their dogs food that they know will benefit them, food they understand and often food they eat themselves and find to be beneficial.
While superfoods (whether for humans or dogs) are not defined precisely, they are often thought of as foods that offer a superior level of nutrients and/or naturally occurring compounds that are beneficial to health. In addition, it could be considered that superfoods provide a health benefit over and above other foods beyond maintaining everyday health.
When it comes to superfoods for dogs, many superfoods that are popular with humans can also be safely added into dog food. In many instances, studies are finding that superfoods for dogs can provide many of the same benefits as they do for humans across many body systems through antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
People are taking more positive steps to boost their own health and well being through the foods they eat. They are taking a much closer look at the ingredients listed on the packaging, and by researching online, they are making more informed choices about what they eat and what they want to consume. This is now becoming more popular in the dog food market, with owners taking their pets’ health and well being more seriously than ever before.
