Are you wondering what all the craze with mushrooms is these days? There are certain mushrooms that have served medicinal purposes for centuries – and they still do today!
Are Mushrooms toxic for dogs or cats?
In short – it depends on the mushroom. There is a wide variety of highly nutritious mushrooms for dogs and cats and there are others that are toxic – you just got to know which is which!
Cats and dogs alike can benefit from certain mushrooms in their diet.
What benefits do Mushrooms have and why?
There are plenty of benefits that different mushrooms have – let’s look at some of the common goodness of ancestral mushrooms like turkey tail, lion’s mane or red reishi:
Mushrooms are a good source of chitin and beta-glucan, which are fibers that lower cholesterol. This means they help keep hormones balanced and prevent spikes in blood sugar. Mushrooms also contain antioxidants and potent phytonutrients that help keep cells from sticking to blood vessel walls, which maintains healthy blood pressure and improves blood circulation. Mushrooms are furthermore one of the few food sources for vitamin D, which is an important nutrient to help your pets’ bodies absorb calcium and promote bone growth. Pets with Joint Pain will benefit from this naturally!
Not just this, certain mushrooms (like the ones in our Cell Shield Supplement) in particular are extremely beneficial in fighting disease, lowering inflammation, suppressing allergic responses, reducing tumor growth and alleviating kidney and liver problems naturally! Say good bye to atopic dermatitis and food allergies!
How to include Mushrooms into the diet?
One way to include Mushrooms is by making Mushroom Broth whether your pet eats home cooked, kibble, barf or a raw diet – for this just collect fresh or air dried Mushrooms and simmer into a broth, then strain and cool down before serving.
Another way to get a powerful blend of medicinal mushrooms into your pets diet is through our Cell Shield Supplement. It boosts immunity for dogs and cats naturally by combining Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail and Red Reishi Mushrooms, apart from some other super ingredients including Bovine Colostrum, Red Beets, Broccoli & Parsley!
