Cool’N’Calm Oats With Chamomile biscuits contain no additives or preservatives but are instead home-baked with a host of all-natural, human grade ingredients, which are locally sourced where possible, including:
Chamomile: which has a sweet, floral taste and is one of the most popular medicinal herbs in human history. It is equally beneficial to dogs, and its characteristic soothing properties make it a brilliant remedy to mild anxiety, stress, and insomnia. In addition to giving this biscuit its calming ability, chamomile has anti-inflammatory effects that are useful in treating skin and gastrointestinal conditions. It can also act as a natural dewormer, astringent, and muscle relaxer.
Honey: which contains natural sugars that not only give it its sweet taste but also have many beneficial applications in your dog’s diet. Honey works to cure allergies by virtue of the flower pollen and quercetin (a bioflavonoid with antihistamine effects) it contains. Local honey works best as it contains the pollens which affect your dog. It is also purported to have antimicrobial and antifungal properties, reduce inflammation, and soothe stomach ulcers and sore throats.
Cinnamon: which is a spice commonly used in baking to add flavour, but it also has many health benefits. It is rich in eugenol, an oily substance that is abundant in anti-inflammatory properties that are great for aging pets with arthritis or muscle soreness, as it helps manage joint pain and reduce swelling. Cinnamon is also rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and flavonoids which work to defend against neurological disorders and improve cognitive function.
Coconut Oil: which comes from the meat of coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. Coconut oil consists of at least 90% saturated fats, most of which are medium chain triglycerides. MCTs are quickly metabolised to provide energy and are made up of acids which are known for their antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects. Coconut oil also works as an anti-inflammatory, improves cognitive skills, boosts the immune system, and aids weight loss.
Organic Rolled Oats: which is a delicious and nutritious cereal grain that is particularly suited to dogs. Oats are a warming grain, that helps strengthen the spleen, pancreas, and immune system, as well as the heart. They are a good source of soluble fiber which makes them effective at lowering cholesterol. Considered a nervine, oats can also act as a general nerve tonic and can be used to treat a variety of nervous disorders.
Buckwheat Flour: which is a nutrient-rich fruit seed with a bold, nutty taste. Despite its name, buckwheat is not derived from grain and, as such, it is a perfect gluten-free substitute for baking. Buckwheat is regarded as a superfood. The protein it contains comprises almost all of the required amino acids in their required amounts, especially lysine, and it is a fiber powerhouse that is effective in alleviating constipation, hypertension, and obesity.
