Superfoods can be incredibly beneficial and there are certain superfoods for dogs that every pet parent should know about.

Wheatgrass is loaded with vitamins, essential amino acids, chlorophyll, fiber, and live enzymes. It provides remarkable health benefits for dogs such as aiding in digestion, improving blood flow, helping with detoxification and reducing the risk of developing cancer. Wheatgrass works as an antioxidant and has a balanced blend of superoxide dismutase (an enzyme which removes cancer causing free radicals from the body) and Vitamin-E, which promotes a shiny coat and healthy skin. This super grass also has high amounts of vitamin c, which protects dogs from infections and boosts their immunity.
Turmeric is a golden-colored spice with amazing health benefits for both dogs and humans alike. This medicinal herb is a highly potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that has the potential to prevent heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and other chronic illnesses. It also promotes healthy liver and kidney function. Turmeric has been used as medicine by practitioners in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda for centuries and is praised for its ability to heal the body.
