Cosa sono gli antiossidanti e come agiscono sull’alimentazione degli animali?

What are antioxidants and how do they affect animal nutrition?

Antioxidants are the allies par excellence in the fight against free radicals for us humans, but they are also very important for our animals to fight cellular aging.

Antioxidants are able to inhibit and stop the spread of free radicals and the cellular damage they can cause to the dog or cat, thus slowing down the aging process of the body.

There are two types of antioxidants: endogenous , that is enzymes already existing in the tissues and which act jointly with the mineral salts that our pets take with food; and exogenous antioxidants. The latter are obtained exclusively from food.

Obviously, antioxidants can also be administered through food supplements, but at Tasty Pet we prefer to have our four-legged friends follow a correct and balanced diet so as not to have to add any supplements. On the other hand, mother nature gives us ingredients rich in all the nutrients, you just need to take them in the correct way.

So what are the foods that contain the most antioxidants?

In the first place we find the red beet , rich in antioxidants useful to protect the body and the aging of our four-legged friends. Antioxidants are present in both the tuber and the leaves.

    What happens if the dog eats some chocolate?

    Unlike us humans, dogs do not have the enzymes necessary to metabolize cocoa, in particular two substances contained in it, theobromine which has toxic effects on both dogs and cats, and caffeine. Dark chocolate is even more toxic because the theobromine level is even higher there as there is a higher percentage of cocoa than milk chocolate or white chocolate.

    Dogs and the love of water

    Most dogs go crazy for water, but why? Whether it's a fountain, a puddle, the sea or a river, dogs seem really attracted to it, woe to stop them from taking a nice dip. How can we blame him, especially...
