This ingredient is why our Heart Smart biscuit is a reddish hue and we think that rather appropriate given beetroot’s association with cardiovascular health. Phytonutrients found in beets have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body, and preliminary studies have shown promise in the ability of beets to help prevent cardiovascular disease and regulate blood sugar levels. Beets may also help the body in its detoxifcation process, binding with specific toxins and assisting in their excretion from our systems through urine.
Tip of the week
REPEL BUGS NATURALLY... With the summer months now upon us, bugs and ticks are out in full force and can prove to be a menace to all. Did you know that Geranium Essential Oil can be used as a natural bug repellent? We place 3 drops of oil on the inside of our dog's collar and not only does he smell divine, but we find that it really does keep the bugs away. *Please note that essential oil in full concentration can be a skin irritant so it should never go directly on skin. If your dog does not have a thick coat of fur, you can place 3 drops of geranium essential oil in 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil and mix together. You can use the oil directly on the coat, particularly around the neck and where the tail meets the spine. Consider using it on yourself as well! We love local British brands Tisserand (www.tisserand.com) & Baldwins (www.baldwins.co.uk) for essential oils as their products are pure and cruelty-free!
