JustFoodForDogs Metabolic Support is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Nutrient Profiles for maintenance. p>
Turkey breast is a high-quality source of lean protein and contains selenium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, and B vitamins.
Whole oats are used as a nutritious source of dietary fiber. Specific to metabolic disease, oats have been shown to support insulin sensitivity in a randomized, double-blind clinical trial in humans. Oats have also been shown to support favorable changes in cholesterol (hyperlipidemia) and have high satiety scores, making them an excellent ingredient choice for a metabolic diet.
Butternut squash is extremely nutritious and rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and dietary fiber. It is also high in B vitamins, which are great for overall energy and digestion. Butternut squash is also rich in beta-carotene as a source of vitamin A, which is important for healthy vision.
Beef liver is a protein-packed, nutrient-dense food that is also abundant in vitamin A, which is great for vision! In addition to supporting healthy vision, beef liver is also great for red blood cell health as it is a rich source of heme iron (the most absorbable form of iron). Beef liver is also high in vitamin B12, minerals, and essential fatty acids (omega-3 and -6), which help boost energy and support a healthy coat and immune system.
Whole Psyllium Husk
Whole psyllium husk is used medicinally as a source of dietary fiber. Dietary fiber provides a filling effect and can also promote steady glucose absorption. Diets with increased dietary fiber have been clinically proven to improve blood glucose curves in conjunction with insulin therapy.
Icelandic premium fish oil provides omega-3 fatty acids in highly biologically available forms of EPA and DHA. Omega-3 fatty acids are important for maintaining healthy skin, a shiny coat, and brain development during growth.
Sunflower oil is a natural and medicinal oil pressed from the seeds of the sunflower and is rich in essential unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid.
