LUCUMA POWDER - ANTIOXIDANT SUPER FOOD and FRUIT - GLYCEMIC, GLUCOSE and DIGESTIVE SUPPORT

LUCUMA is a fruit producing tree that is found plentifully and sustainably in the coastal lowland valleys and Andean highland valleys of Peru, growing between altitudes of 5000-10,000 feet. LUCUMAis an antioxidant super fruit, super food fruit and power (energy) food, it is commonly known in Peru as egg fruit due to its shape and unique texture.

Indigenous to Peru, LUCUMAis a highly prized ancient fruit, referred to as the Gold of the Incas? as it was once reserved solely for Peruvian royalty. As a native of Peru, LUCUMAhas been used for millennia, with use dating back to 200 AD.

LUCUMAhas a flavor akin to maple sugar and sweet potato mixed with pumpkin, with a consistency that can range from a dry paste to custard. Both water and fat soluble, LUCUMA powdercan be eaten raw, cooked or baked and added to all types of diets.

>Natural documented plant chemicals include

Antioxidant (beta carotene), fatty acids, (linoleic 39%, oleic 28%, palmitic 19%, stearic 9%, y-linolenic 3%, gamma linolenic acid, arachidic acids plus other trace novel fatty acids), glucose, fructose, sucrose, inositol, citric and succinic acid, vitamins and minerals, beta-carotene B3 (niacin) potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, carotenoids, protein, carbohydrates and fiber.

>The researched, documented, traditional medicinal uses for LUCUMAinclude

antioxidant, nutritive (as a nutritional super food and fruit), anti-diabetic, hypoglycemic (may help maintain glycemic level), antibiotic, anti microbial, anti inflammatory, anti-aging, vulnerary (wound healer), anti-mutagenic (cellular protector), hypotensive, cardio tonic, and ace inhibitor.

LUCUMAis used traditionally to help stabilize conditional needs related to blood sugar specific to glucose regulation and glycemic index, critical for diabetic dogs and cats but also necessary for system wide healthy body cellular function.

A report published in theJournal of Medicinal Food in 2009 suggests that consumption of LUCUMA fruit may aid in the management of diabetes and high blood pressure. Analyzing a number of preliminary findings on >LUCUMA health effects, the report's authors determined that antioxidants found in >LUCUMA may be of some benefit to people and pets with diabetic and high blood pressure conditions.

The same study referenced for potential heart benefits as LUCUMA is especially high in antioxdant polyphenols and carotenoids, two groups of antioxidants studied for their anti-inflammatory, potentially cancer-fighting and heart health benefits.

LUCUMAcontains a high level of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which may have a direct impact on stool quality and may be an important ingredient addition to help encourage healthy elimination for dogs and cats who struggle with constipation.

A potential digestive benefit of LUCUMA is that its soluble fiber content may help feed beneficial gut bacteria and the mcirobiome, due to its action to help produce short chain fatty acids (SCFA's i.e. acetate, propionate, butyrate) which are used at a cellular level in your gut, may help protect against inflammation and may help mediate conditional needs related to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's and ulcerative colitis. to keep it healthy and balanced.

LUCUMA may have important therapeutic benefits for dogs and cats who have difficulty gaining or maintaining weight and is an excellent source of healthy, unrefined whole food carbohydrates, which may also help provide a senior or immune compromised pet with energy.

LUCUMAhas more calcium than milk and may help support healthy bones and proper nerve function, plus it contains plentiful beta-carotenene (an anti-carcinogen), zinc, iron, vitamin C, niacin (B3), fiber and 14 essential trace minerals, which are often missing in our pet's diets.

There's also some evidence that > LUCUMA nut oil may help speed up wound healing. In an animal-based study published in theJournal of Cosmetic Dermatology in 2010, for instance, scientists determined that compounds found in > LUCUMA nut oil helped accelerate wound closure and promote regeneration of the skin.

Meet Rockwell

Rockwell is always ready to rock and roll! This spunky puppy loves to play and be active. At times when he can’t be running around, he enjoys mental stimulation in the form of puzzle feeders, snuffle mats, and kongs. Being a puppy, Rockwell naturally still needs a lot of training. Luckily, he is very food motivated and is willing to go wherever the treats are.
