These days people as well as dogs are exposed to environmental pollutants and harmful chemicals such as pesticides, insecticides, and cigarette smoke which release free radicals.
Berries are known for their antioxidant properties which means that they slow down the aging process and protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals can cause damage to our cells, such as cancer, heart disease, and other chronic degenerative conditions and health problems.
Our 100 % natural, some also organic, berry powders are free from any chemical additives, processes and chemical pesticides. This is vital to understand as chemically altered products flood the health market.
Just as there are health benefits for you when you eat berries, there are also lots of health benefits for your dog. Berries are perfectly safe and very healthy for dogs and can prevent the same illnesses as they do with humans.
Berry powder gives both of you the important berry-nutrients in an easy to use form.
Make natural berry powder a daily habit: sprinkle on your morning muesli or oatmeal, add to waffle or pancake batter, mix with plain or vanilla yogurt, add to your favorite smoothie recipe, baking, fruit salad, salad dressing and ice cream, and even to your meat sauce. Or just enjoy with warm water as tea.
Children like to prepare their own berry yogurts and try different flavors!
Add berry powder in your dog’s food or mix it with his home-made treats.
The recommended daily intake for humans is 1 teaspoon, and for dogs ½-1 teaspoon.
Berries are dried at a low temperature (max 39°C) to preserve their valuable nutrients, and then ground. Berry powders contain the same active agents as fresh berries do, only in a more concentrated form.
The benefit of berry powders compared to fresh berries is that the valuable agents in the seeds, such as the different fatty acids, can be used by the body. When you eat fresh berries, the seeds move whole through the digestive system without having an effect.
Berry powders are low in calories and high in fiber.
Including berries in any form in your diet will help to keep you healthy and slow down the passing of time. You have more energy and you feel more active.
Resveratrol, referred to as “the fountain of youth”, “a miracle ingredient”, and “the greatest discovery since antibiotics”, is especially abundant in dark berries like bilberry, cranberry, black currant, red currant and lingonberry.
CHEWING GUM THAT PREVENTS TOOTH DECAY !
Jenkki Xylitol Chewing Gum, the world’s first xylitol-sweetened chewing gum since 1975.
Tooth decay and gum disease are serious problems, mainly due to excessive use of sugar.
Xylitol chewing gum restores a proper acid-alkaline balance in the mouth, which inhibits bacteria and plaque formation. All Jenkki chewing gums have been sweetened with xylitol, helping to prevent plaque build-up, cavities, ear and sinus infections.
The dental significance of xylitol was discovered in Finland in the early 1970s, when scientists at Turku University showed it could prevent caries. Xylitol has the ability, among other things, to reduce dental plaque formation, make plaque less adhesive, reduce cavities by up to 80%, demonstrate significant long-term reduction in caries (88-93%), assist in the remineralization of tooth enamel, reduce gum tissue inflammation and help with dry mouth and bad breath.
Xylitol also has potential as a treatment for osteoporosis. A group of Finnish researchers has found that dietary xylitol prevents weakening of bones in laboratory rats, and actually improves bone density.
Xylitol is a great option for those who are seeking to avoid ear infections. It is known to prevent the growth of certain bacteria, specifically the bacteria that causes dental cavities, sinus infections, and ear infections.
Xylitol is not only safe for pregnant and nursing women, but studies show that regular use significantly reduces the probability of transmitting the Streptococcus mutans bacteria, which is responsible for tooth decay, from mother to child during the first two years of life by as much as 80%.
Xylitol (Finnish ksylitoli) was first derived from birch trees in Finland in early 1970's and was first popularized in Europe as a safe sweetener for people with diabetes that would not impact insulin levels.
Treat your teeth with a Jenkki chewing gum after every meal.
