Improve the health of your pets with these nutritious fruits and vegetables

 

Feeding your pets the highest quality food items with the most nutrition does not have to break the bank, especially if you already grow your own organic produce at home. There are many different fruits and vegetables, in fact, that cats and especially dogs will gladly eat that can help boost their immune systems, fight off infections, and even prevent the formation of chronic and debilitating illnesses like cancer.



  • Carrots, which both veterinarians and nutrition experts alike agree is highly beneficial for animals. Rich in beta-carotene, carrots help promote healthy vision as well as scavenge damaging free radicals that cause oxidative damage in the body. Carrots also contain falcarinol, a bioactive compound that helps thwart the development of cancer.

 

  • Beans, which are typically rich in fiber and antioxidants. Both beans and bean pods are beneficial for animals, as they help decrease cholesterol buildup in the bloodstream and modulate blood glucose levels. Beans also help promote heart health, and are typically rich in B vitamins, which can help prevent anemia and gastrointestinal disease.

 

  • Broccoli is packed with vitamins A, C, and D, as well as important trace minerals and hormone-regulating compounds. A powerful cancer-fighter, broccoli is rich in anti-cancer phytochemicals that prevent carcinogens from damaging healthy cells and promote the production of anti-carcinogenic enzymes. Broccoli also contains high levels of indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane, two compounds heavily studied for their anti-cancer effects.

 

  • Cantaloupe is highly beneficial for animals as it helps protect their    eyesight. Like the aforementioned vegetables, cantaloupe is also rich in A, B, and C vitamins, which can help prevent disease-causing oxidative stress. Cantaloupe also tends to be a relatively clean food free of pesticides, and is also free of goitogens, which are naturally occurring substances in some foods that reduce thyroid function.


5) Leafy green vegetables like spinach are another animal "super food," as they are densely packed with antioxidants like flavonoids and carotenoids, both of which help to quell inflammation and deter cancer formation. Like with carrots, dark leafy greens that have been cooked or steamed are best for pets, and to help make them more palatable, organic broths, meats, and other savory foods can be mixed in for complete nutrition.
