Do you take omega-3 supplements to improve your own health? If you’re like a lot of people, you’re adding omega-3 to your diet because of the great health benefits these “good fats” deliver. They may improve heart health, reduce inflammation throughout the body, reduce joint pain — even improve some skin conditions.
And, once again, what’s good for you is good for Fido and Fluffy. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids are essential for healthy growth and development in dogs and cats.
What can omega-3 do for your pet’s health?
- Promote heart health
- Keep the coat and skin healthy and supple
- May help reduce inflammation throughout body including the joints
- Support the immune system
- Promote healthy brain function
Since omega-3 essential fatty acids aren’t made in the body – neither our bodies nor our pet’s bodies make them – these important nutrients must come from our diets. Foods including cold water fish like salmon, flaxseed, walnuts, and soybeans are all rich in healthy omega-3.
But I’m guessing while some of you might eat salmon, tofu, and walnuts regularly to boost your omega-3 levels, you aren’t feeding those foods to your pet every day, right? Fortunately, there are many omega-3 nutritional supplements on the market formulated specifically for dogs and cats. And we’re seeing a definite uptick in orders for these important products.
But not all nutritional supplements are alike. When you’re buying nutritional supplements, for yourself or your pet, it’s important that you check the quality and purity to ensure you’re getting what you need – and what you pay for.
I’m really excited about one of our newest omega-3 supplements– Ascenta Omega3. This liquid nutritional supplement is available in canine and feline formulas that can be added directly to your pet’s food. But here’s what’s different about Ascenta Omega3: the quality and purity are guaranteed. Ascenta has an independent verification system that confirms the purity and exact make up of each batch of Ascenta Omega3 so you can check the levels of the supplement you order online to ensure its quality. That’s a valuable resource and good peace of mind.
