Salmon Oil – Why it is Special?
Many scientific studies have proved that salmon oil is not only fashionable but an effective ingredient in your pet‘s nutrition. The results show that pets receive not only additional benefits from Omega-3 fatty acids, but they are necessary for the pet to be healthy entirely. What is more, since the body of a dog or cat does not produce these fatty acids naturally, the four-legged pets should get them with food.
What is Salmon Oil?
Salmon oil is a natural food supplement extracted from the salmonids. First of all, this oil is produced for the irreplaceable Omega-3 fatty acids contained within. These fatty acids are also produced from the salmon meat, though the oil is much richer in these acids.
Although salmon oil is categorized as fats, it is not used as the source of energy (fats) – it is added as a functional ingredient in the feeds having certain benefits on a pet‘s body.
Why is Salmon Oil Special?
Omega-3 fatty acids are classified into two groups: the long-chain and short-chain. The good news is that the Omega-3 fatty acids in salmon oil contain both of these groups. The long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids, also known as DHA and EPA, are crucial for brain development and maintaining their activity. The short-chain Omega-3 fatty acids are able to fight harmful free radicals, and, thus, protect the body from the unwanted effect and improve the immune system.
Salmon oil is well known for its effect on coat and skin. It contains Omega-3 fatty acids that help produce natural oils in the pet’s body necessary to maintain healthy skin and coat. It may also help protect the skin from itching regardless of the cause.
In addition, salmon oil may improve the activity of the digestive system, encourage the production of collagen, and reduce the probability of allergic reactions. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Salmon Oil in Production
Salmon oil present in the composition of HiQ feeds does not only possess the above-mentioned advantages for your pet’s health, but it is also certified with a MSC certificate. This certificate ensures that fishing does not endanger the fish population, the variety of ecosystems is maintained, and fishing systems comply with all the laws. Therefore, the production of salmon oil used in HiQ feeds is sustainable.
If you feed the feed having no salmon oil within to your pet or you would like to supplement the nutrition with the bigger amount of salmon oil, it is recommended to choose the food supplement Nature‘s Protection 100% Salmon Oil – natural salmon oil, which is rich with Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
