Chicken is rich in high quality proteins that are fundamental for muscle tissue tone and are known to be important in the growth of puppies because they encourage appropriate and balanced muscle mass development. This meat, in fact, contains a high percentage of complete proteins with all essential amino acids, while at the same time possessing high levels of iron with respect to beef. The presence of these elements is indispensible for muscle health, and the entire body in general, but with very low levels of fat: just 1.1%.
These types of branched chain amino acids (BCAA) also play an important role in the elimination of toxins during physical activity, making this meat particularly important in the nutrition of dogs that are particularly active (hunting dog, agility dog, etc).
Bluefish is very easy to digest and rich in good fats or Omega 3, also it contains selenium, calcium, iodine, phosphorus, potassium, fluoride, zinc, vitamins A and D.
The fat of the bluefish is very important for the health of the heart and the circulatory system.
Bluefish is more nutritious and higher in Omega 3 fatty acids than the white fish. Omega 3 are unsaturated fats that promote the decrease of cholesterol levels by acting as scavengers of the arteries, prevent cancers of the colon and pancreas, fighting premature aging.
The lamb meat has a high nutritional value, it is easily digested and recommended for those who suffer from food allergies. It contains a high percentage of high biological value proteins. There are also certain amino acids called “essential” such as lysine, tryptophan, sulfur amino acids, etc.
The lamb meat is also an important source of minerals (zinc, copper, selenium and iron) and water-soluble vitamins (B1, B2, B6, niacin and B12) and fat-soluble (E). The zinc, which is found in meat of lamb, helps the development and proper functioning of body cells. It also stimulates the metabolism and strengthens the immune system. It is also a major source of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids Omega 3 and 6 (in the flesh of infants) including linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acids docosapentenoico.
Olive oil, mainly used in the food industry, is considered the main ingredient of the Mediterranean diet.
It, also called liquid gold for its health benefits, is composed of a high concentration of antioxidants such as Omega-6 monounsaturated fatty acid (oleic acid), polyphenols (Vitamin E, oleocantale) and minerals, such as iron, calcium and potassium.
Polyphenols are antioxidant molecules that counteract the harmful effects of free radicals and boost the immune system. The oleocantale is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
The daily consumption of olive oil prevents the onset of serious diseases, such as breast, ovarian and colonrectal cancer. Moreover, taken in the right doses, it regulates the blood cholesterol levels by preventing cardiovascular disease.
Tomato is rich in vitamins and minerals that confer beneficial properties for the body.
It contains substances with powerful antioxidant properties such as Beta-carotene, Vitamin E and C, Lycopene, able to slow the proliferation of tumor cells. Widely used in the Mediterranean diet, the tomato reduces cholesterol, the risk of cardiovascular disease, it is an effective anti-cancer and helps digestion.
The presence of glutathione, an antioxidant substance, counteracts free radicals and carries out a detoxifying activity as it facilitates the expulsion of the heavy metals from the body, lead in particular.
Legumes are a valuable source of protein and minerals, such as iron and calcium. They are low in fat and particularly suitable in low-fat diets. Lentils contain high amounts of soluble fiber, which help to lower cholesterol. They are considered beneficial to keep the digestive system health. They have good antioxidant properties thanks to flavonoids and niacin.
Fava beans are rich in protein, fiber and mineral salts such as potassium, iron, phosphorus. They contain vitamins A, B, C and E.
Fava beans held energizing action, diuretic and tonic, as well as laxative thanks to the fibers contained in them.
Durum wheat is grown in clayey areas and where there is little humidity: not surprisingly, in Italy it is typically produced in the South and in the Islands.
From a nutritional point of view, durum wheat contains high amounts of fiber, which promote the maintenance of our body in good health, especially as regards the intestine.
It also provides proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that promote good metabolism, protect the heart, regulate blood sugar levels, counteract overweight and obesity, defend the body from inflammation and counteract oxidative stress.
Rice is a food that’s rich in starch and has great nutritional and energetic value, together with astringent properties. Digestibility is among rice’s principal characteristics that are associated with a higher level of nutrient absorption at the intestinal level.
The high potassium content, together with vitamin B complex, makes rice an ideal food during times of physical fatigue. Its low fat content and high level of essential fatty acids makes it a useful food source in the preventing hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Rice is a gluten-free food, and may also be consumed by dogs and cats with gluten intolerance.
