ProVida Flax Seed Flake is a 100% Natural Supplement rich in Protein, Dietary Fibre, Lignans and other Vitamins & Minerals…an ideal supplement to aid bowel & digestive health.
With over 30% protein and around 40% dietary fibre, flax seed flake is a wonderful supplement for optimum bowel and colon health. It is great for dogs who suffer from constipation or poor digestive health, and can also assist with anal gland issues.
Flax seed flake is very high in dietary fibre, and low in non-fibre carbohydrates. The high insoluble fibre content promotes regular bowel movements and a healthy colon, contributing to your dog’s all-round health. Insoluble fibre acts like a sponge and absorbs water, therefore adding a higher moisture content to stools, encouraging normal faecal consistency and reducing constipation.
In addition to protein and dietary fibre, flake is also a fantastic source of phytoestrogens (lignans at 1.6%) and other vitamins and minerals including sodium, calcium and magnesium.
We recommend feeding 1g of Flake per 4g of body weight. The Flake can be simply sprinkled over the top of the daily meal like a topper, or fed in chunks as a treat.
We are often asked if the flake needs to be soaked in water prior to feeding. This is not the case with Flax Seed Flake. Due to some of the oil being retained in the flake it is not extremely dry, and so does not need to be soaked. We do however recommend that your dog has water readily available when eating.
Once opened, to maintain the quality and freshness of the flake, keep in a cool dark place and use within 12 months.
