Have you ever wondered why Brad Pattison Pet Wellness adds cane molasses to their targeted health soft chews? Well, the answer may surprise you! Read on if you are curious. This fascinating ingredient not only adds a delicious flavour to our soft chews but contains many healthy minerals and vitamins.
Black strap molasses is the dark liquid that is left over after the sugar is extracted from the cane. The sugar is depleted of all nutritional value, while the black strap is loaded with beneficial vitamins and minerals, including: Vitamin B6, Iron, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese, Selenium and Zinc. There are many health benefits of molasses for our furry friends.
Iron in molasses is easily assimilated and reduces anemia.
Magnesium and Calcium in molasses help to support strong bones and improves the nervous system.
Chromium in molasses improves glucose tolerance, which helps metabolize sugars and helps reduce the risk of diabetes.
Vitamin B6 aids in fat digestion, synthesizing hemoglobin and metabolizing the amino acids in protein.
Molasses also helps improve hair and skin conditions and can even restore hair colour in older dogs! Molasses can help alleviate pain and weaknesses associated with arthritis. Manganese fights free radicals and helps stabilize blood sugar.
