After thorough research and testing of hemp, HAAKS®B.A.R.F is convinced that Hemp is a very high-grade food for dogs.
Hemp is one of the oldest known plants in the world. It has many good properties and has been used by many cultures throughout the centuries. The hemp from which hemp seeds come from, unlike marijuana, has no psychoactive action, so can be used safely.
More and more people discover the nutritional power of cannabis.
Cannabis can contribute to even better resistance and healthier life.
About hemp seed oil for the dog. Like humans, animals (mammals, fish and molluscs) have an endocannabinoid system (endo means body-like) with cannabis-like substances. This system, if you think about it, is really fantastic, It allows the body to function optimally. Because they are body-like substances, it is immediately recognized and fully absorbed by the body.
Recognizing the substances thus allows the beneficial substances of the hemp plant to do their “work” very well in the body. Of course, as with humans, each animal could react different on hemp seed oil.
The effective characteristics are shown in animals better than in humans. This is mainly due to the impartiality of animals. It is therefore excluded in animals that a placebo effect may occur.
The results are really super.
What exactly does make hemp such a healthy food source for dogs? First, hemp contains the ideal ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These nutrients are found in the oil many times more concentrated.
Hemp oil contains an ideal mix of Omega-9 (Oleic acid) Omega-6 (Linoleic Acid) and Omega-3 (Alfalinoleic Acid). These are essential fatty acids, these fatty acids should be absorbed by the diet. The body does not make it themselves. They play an important role in the functioning of the heart and vascular system, the brain, the hormonal system and the immune system.
Hemp is also rich in another form of Omega-6, namely gamma linoleic acid (GLA). With a good diet, your dog can make this substance, but in some animals it does not happen to a sufficient extent. A lack of GLA results in reduced defenses and susceptibility to inflammation.
Hemp oil is rich in protein from vegetable source, these are very well digested. Proteins are needed for muscle build-up and endurance. In addition, it contains all eight essential amino acids that the body can not create itself. Hemp is rich in all kinds of minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, iodine, vitamin E, C and B vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6. The B vitamins are very important when it comes to energy management. Vitamin E is important for good brain function and metabolism.
In addition to all healthy fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, hemp also contains a large amount of antioxidants and enzymes including lecithin. Lecithin plays a role in healthy liver function, which stimulates the natural cleansing of the body. Hemp is also rich in alpha, beta and gamma globulin, a substance that helps strengthen our immune system and also helps to replace damaged tissue with new tissue.
Due to all the benefits that this plant has to offer and also the beneficial effect that has emerged in research, we have chosen to add hemp standard to our product at HAAKS®B.A.R.F.
All of these benefits occur in the hemp plant. The plants, seeds and oil each have their own nutrients. What the plant contains in fatty acids is in the oil many times more concentrated. The amino acids and minerals are found throughout the plant, but in the seeds the greatest concentration is.
