Swan Valley Honey sent us some interesting info on bee pollen this week - for you and your dog so we thought we'd share it with you!
Bee pollen is a nutrient-packed powerhouse that consists of up to 35% protein, 50% carbohydrates, 22 amino acids, 27 minerals and vitamins A,B,C,D,E and K. It is high in chromium, cobalt, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, iron and folic acid too. Bee pollen is one of the most complete nutritional profiles in the world, making it great dietary addition for both humans and their canine companions.
Absolutely! Here are some key reasons to supplement your dog's diet with bee pollen:
Bee pollen can be added daily to your dog's food but it is very important that you monitor your pup for sensitivity. The recommended dose for a 23kg dog is 1 teaspoon per day. Start with 1/3 dose, and gradually increase to ensure he doesn't have sensitivity.
Swan Valley Honey Bee Pollen is collected by beekeepers by Western Australian bees. It is then air dried and packed to ensure freshness and potency. Bee Pollen cannot be replicated in a laboratory.
