Pumpkin: An Underappreciated Superfood!
Dogs love the taste of pumpkin and it’s good for them too! I always go back to the idea that natural, clean foods provide the most benefit to our health.
This simple fruit is good for:
- Urinary tract health
- Regular digestion – helps with both constipation and diarrhea
- Weight loss
- Healthy skin and coat
- Pancreatic function to regulate blood sugar
- Supports a strong immune system
Pumpkin is low in calories but packed full of vital nutrition. It is a rich source of fiber, iron, copper, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus as well as an excellent source of polyphenolic flavonoid compounds such as carotenes and lutein.
It is one of the best sources of antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E – all contributing to the health of the skin, mucous membranes, and eyesight. Vitamin A protects against lung and oral cavity cancers. Pumpkin can help with weight loss too. Because it is high in fiber, this healthy fruit makes your dog feel full.
Nature has given us yet another powerful defender. For your dog’s healthy eyes, skin, mucous membranes, digestive system, and a shield against cancer, we add non GMO pumpkin to Lucky Dog Cuisine!
