Pumpkin Crunchers Peanut Butter & Banana 14oz
Pumpkin is very high in carotenoids. They are what give pumpkins their bright orange color. Carotenoids have been shown to neutralize free radicals-molecules that can attack cell membranes and leave the cells vulnerable to damage. Pumpkins are also high in lutein and zeaxanthin, which help minimize free radicals in the lens of the eye. As a result they may help prevent the formation of cataracts and reduce the risk of macular degeneration which usually results in blindness.
Pumpkins also contain several beneficial nutrients such as zinc, iron and fiber. Zinc deficiency may be related to osteoporosis of the hip and spine in older dogs. Iron stimulates red blood cell growth. Fiber is important for bowel health.
Peanuts are a great source of monounsaturated fats emphasized in a heart-healthy diet. They contain high concentrations of antioxidant polyphenols, primarily a compound called p-coumaric acid.
Bananas contain potassium and as a result offer benefits to the kidneys and the bones. A normal intake of potassium suppresses calcium excretion in the urine and minimizes the risk of kidney stones.
